Workspace ONE Common Errors and Best Practices

In this quick guide we're going to cover common Workspace ONE errors and steps for resolution.

Choose your error message below to jump to the appropriate section:


Issue Description: Workspace ONE displays the message "All apps could not be loaded at this time. There is either a configuration or network error while communicating with MDM" on the catalog tab on your unmanaged iOS device.

Causes & Resolutions: 

  • Network Error: First rule out that your device is not properly connected to wifi. Also ensure TCP port 443 is enabled on your network.
  • Timeout Error: If you have recently been logged into another session, the old session may not have expired yet. You can click your account in the top right of the Workspace ONE catalog and choose "Sign Out". Next, sign in again and return to the catalog page. Now you should no longer see the error.


Issue Description: Workspace ONE displays the message "All apps could not be loaded at this time. More Details" on the catalog tab on your unmanaged iOS device.

Causes & Resolutions: 

  • This occurs when you issue an enterprise wipe or device delete from the AirWatch admin console for your device without first selecting "Remove Account" in the Workspace ONE app. Additionally, you'll only see this error after waiting for at least 15 minutes after the enterprise wipe before signing back into Workspace ONE. Before the 15 minute timeout you will see all the apps without the pad lock sign. We have a separate resolution for this second error in this guide located here.
  • To resolve this issue click on "More Details" at the bottom of the catalog. You'll now see a "Register Device" button. Click "Register Device" and you will see the message "Good News! Registration Successful". Now the catalog will reload and you'll see all your apps with the lock symbols.


Issue Description: When logging into Workspace ONE you are getting the message "Unfortunately, this device is currently registered to another user."

Causes & Resolutions:

  • Device Caching: The Workspace ONE app has cached your last login session. On iOS, deleting the Workspace ONE app and reinstalling will not remove the cache so you will still run into this issue. The only resolution is to remember which account you last used and login as that account. If you are unable to remember the account you must factory reset your device. 
  • Additionally, make sure you are using the lastest version of Workspace ONE [2.2 or newer] as this issue has been resolved in Workspace ONE 2.2.

Best Practices: To avoid this issue in the future always unenroll your device by opening the Workspace ONE app, selecting account in the top right and choosing "Remove Account".


Issue Description: My device is unenrolled, and I see the native apps in the Workspace ONE app catalog, but I don't see padlocks on any of the apps?

Causes & Resolutions:

  • This will occur when you issue an enterprise wipe or device delete from the AirWatch admin console without first choosing to "Remove Account" in the Workspace ONE app on the device. Therefore, the app is showing your last active session. To resolve this, choose "Sign Out" and then sign back into the Workspace ONE app. When you log back in you will now see all the padlock signs have returned.

Best Practices: To avoid this issue in the future always unenroll your device by opening the Workspace ONE app, selecting account in the top right and choosing "Remove Account".
