My Products Page

The main view in the TestDrive portal is the my products page. This is where you turn on products for your account, launch into products, view walkthrough guides and view your credentials. 

You'll notice the products page is broken into 3 sections - Ready to Use Experiences, Sandbox Experiences, and Sample Integrations.

  • Ready to Use Experiences - these products have been completely configured, integrated and are maintained by the TestDrive team. We've set up sample customer workflows so you can see the products in the configured state that would be common in the real world. No configuration is required, just launch into the products and start using them.
  • Sandbox Experiences - these products are blank individual instances of the product assigned to your TestDrive account. With these experiences, you can explore your own tenant of the product to review all the admin features and make any configurations you'd like. These environments are valid as long as your TestDrive account is active and cannot be converted to production today. These environments are Saas hosted.
  • Sample Integrations - these are 3rd party partners who have worked with VMware to provide sample licenses. These integrations are available to showcase the end to end Workspace ONE experience from the "Ready to Use Experiences" products. For example, with Blue Jeans enabled you can SSO into Blue Jeans from Workspace ONE.

Now is a good time to go ahead and toggle on products and integrations you'd like to use.
