This post has been updated with the latest configuration values directly from Workday as of 02/13/2020.
* Be sure to read and use the latest values that are published toward the end of this post.
A few years ago, I deployed the Workday app with Application Configuration values injected for better user experience. So when I was tasked to do the same recently at my current position, I thought it would be a no brainer. Well, for the most part anyway.
I started by adding the Workday app for both iOS and Android platforms. So far so good!
For Android, the fields are already available and you simply need to enter the relevant values accordingly.
For iOS, I had to enter various Configuration Key manually before entering the Configuration Value.
Upon launching the iOS app, it prompted me to enter the value for the Tenant. Separately, the Web Address field is pre-populated and grayed out which indicates part of the Application Configuration value is working.
At this point, I was confused as I did copy and paste the values directly from Workday documentation. Feeling somewhat defeated, I attempted to reach out to Workday for help with little to no luck.
Then my memory kicked in about their community forum. Given that I’m in a new position, I had to request a new account with my business email address.
Once I gained access to the site, I searched and came across this post initially created back on Jan 3rd, 2018 that solved my mystery.
Sure enough. The ‘s’ was, in fact, missing from Workday documentation provided to us!
As soon as I added the missing letter ‘s’, the Tenant field is now pre-populated upon launching the iOS app. Mission accomplished!
Update from 02/13/2020
I was glad that Andrew from Workday was monitoring this thread and provided the updated values to use for MDM.
Here’s the link with the correct values to use plus a few extra that I didn’t know about.
Below is a sample for iOS.
