Introducing Workspace ONE Boxer 5.8 for iOS

The VMware Workspace ONE team is excited to announce that Workspace ONE Boxer 5.8 for iOS is publicly available.


What’s New  

  • To standardize the configuration of our productivity applications, in an upcoming release, Workspace ONE Boxer will be defaulting the key AppForceActivateSSO (bool) to true. Please make sure to test that your environment still works with this key enabled before we change the default. More information on AppForceActivateSSO can be found in the Workspace ONE Boxer Admin Guide
  • BINXI-10955: Phishing Reporting
    We are introducing support for phishing reporting to an email address. When reported via swipe gesture or tap on the phishing item in the action menu, the email will be forwarded to the specified email below as a .eml and deleted from the device
  • BINXI-10707 (beta): Enterprise Content in Workspace ONE Boxer
    Note: this feature is still in BETA and we are making constant improvements. Any and all feedback is welcome.
    • This feature brings parts of the VMware Workspace ONE Content app into Workspace ONE Boxer for viewing attachments, attaching to emails and saving from emails to online repositories.
    • If you have Workspace ONE Content setup, the same repositories will show up
    • If you do not have Content setup, please setup the repositories in the Console.
    • Please contact us at for the KVP if you would like to try out enterprise content.
  • BINXI-7360 (beta): FastSync (Key Sync Escrow)
    To improve the background syncing and speed of subsequent syncs, we are introducing the option called FastSync which sends down the key to decrypt the key opening the encrypted Workpsace ONE Boxer database.
    • To enable FastSync:
      • Key: ENSEnableKeyEscrow (int)
      • Value: 0 (default, for disabled) or 1 (to enable)
    • To set the expiration time in hours where Workspace ONE Boxer will no longer get the key use below
      • Key: ENSKeyEscrowExpiry (int)
      • Value: 48 (default)
