After you install BMC Digital Workplace and configure it, you can make BMC Digital Workplace available to your users via the Universal client (web browser) and mobile clients (Apple iOS and Google Android applications).
After you upgrade BMC Digital Workplace, you must prepare and distribute the appropriate BMC Digital Workplace mobile client.
To prepare the BMC Digital Workplace clients
|Universal client||(Optional) Rebrand the Universal Client|
|Apple iOS client|
|Google Android client|
When you upgrade BMC Digital Workplace, rebranding changes to the Universal client and the iOS mobile clients do not persist. Before you upgrade, create a backup so that you can restore your changes after the upgrade.
If you need assistance with rebranding the application, contact BMC Support or your local account team.
To make the clients available
|Universal client||Announce the URL to the universal client:

After you install BMC Digital Workplace, host the mobile clients on a valid HTTPS server with a valid certificate authority (CA) certificate.

You can use the BMC Digital Workplace server for this purpose only if you configure it for HTTPS. Users can download mobile clients for Google Android and Apple iOS devices through the following web address:
Replace digitalWorkplaceServerName:port with the web address for your BMC Digital Workplace or other HTTPS server on which you are hosting the mobile client.
The 32-bit Android mobile client can run on both 32-bit and 64-bit Android devices. For Android mobile app downloads, you might need to update your device settings to allow downloads from unknown sources.
