Understanding services, entitlements, and groups
Services are applications, often located in the cloud, that users need to access. For example,
Microsoft Office 365,
BlackBerry Workspaces, or
WebEx. By configuring a service in
BlackBerry UEM Cloud, or
BlackBerry Enterprise Identity, you set up a secure interface between
Enterprise Identityand your instance, or tenant, of that service. After you use
BlackBerry UEM Cloudto add a service, you use the
BlackBerry UEMmanagement console to manage the service and deploy entitlements for the service to users.
The most efficient way to entitle users is with app groups. An app group can bind together both the SSO entitlement for a service and the client applications needed on devices to interact with the service. You can assign app groups to users or user groups, giving them everything they need to access the service.
User groups give administrators flexibility to entitle large numbers of users at the same time instead of maintaining the entitlement manually as users are added or removed from the group. When a user is added to the group, the entitlement is assigned to them automatically, allowing them to sign into the service from any device using the same credentials. If a user is removed from the group, they automatically lose access to that service. Service entitlements can also be assigned to individual users if required.

An entitlement is a service assignment made using

Enterprise Identityto provide single sign-on access to a service for a given user or group.
An app group is a collection of apps that can include the single sign-on entitlement and the associated binaries for mobile devices.
