What is the
BlackBerry UEM Integration SDK
?

The
BlackBerry UEM Integration SDK
allows developers to create plug-ins that extend the functionality of
BlackBerry UEM
version 12.7 or later. Using the
UEM Integration SDK
(which includes the
UEM
Integration plug-in for
Eclipse
) and the
UEM
Integration APIs, you can create and deploy
BlackBerry UEM
plug-ins that allow for the tight integration of new features or services with an existing
BlackBerry UEM
installation.
The advantages offered by a
BlackBerry UEM
plug-in:
Feature
Description
Integrate new services and features
You can integrate custom services with
BlackBerry UEM
to extend service-based functionality to device users. For example, the
BlackBerry Workspaces
plug-in
allows an administrator to integrate
Workspaces
file-sharing services with an existing
BlackBerry UEM
domain. Administrators can use the management console to assign the
Workspaces
service to users and groups and to configure and manage various aspects of the service, including distribution lists, workspaces, and document settings.
Add UI components to the management console
You can expose UI for new features or services in the management console, including configuration settings, enable and disable options, administrator permissions, and user assignment mechanisms. Features or services can also be implemented as "back-end" changes with no UI impact.
Leverage existing
UEM
features
The new features or services that you integrate with
BlackBerry UEM
can leverage the existing capabilities of the platform, including role-based authorization, high availability, group and user management, logging, monitoring, and licensing.
Leverage existing systems
You can integrate
BlackBerry UEM
plug-ins with and use data from existing systems, including an organization's company directory and key components of the
BlackBerry Infrastructure
(for example, the licensing infrastructure and provisioning servers).
Add custom APIs
You can add new APIs to
BlackBerry UEM
that can be exposed on an existing
BlackBerry UEM
port. For example, you can implement APIs that allow a third-party product to obtain information about the status of activated devices.
You can request the free
UEM Integration SDK
package from developers.blackberry.com. The SDK package gives you everything you need to get started, including the
UEM
Integration plug-in for
Eclipse
, several code samples, and API references.
