Context-Aware Access gives you control over which apps a user can access based on their context, such as whether their device complies with your IT policy. Using Context-Aware Access, you can create granular access control policies for apps that access Workspace data based on attributes, such as user identity, location, device security status, and IP address.

Implement Context-Aware Access
To get Context-aware access going, you need to create access levels and assign them to specific applications. These articles show all of the configuration choices you can make in the interface to create the access levels and assign them to apps.
Understand use case examples for Context-Aware Access
Below are links to three specific, common use cases for Context-Aware Access. These examples describe creating access levels and assigning them to apps for each use case.
Add messaging for your users
With remediation messages and custom messages, you can help users unblock themselves when a policy prevents them from accessing an app.
Use Context-Aware Access with configuration groups
With configuration groups, you can apply context-aware access levels to groups of users rather than organizational units. Configuration groups can include users from any organizational unit in your business.
Use Context-Aware Access with Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
DLP rules prevent unintended sharing of sensitive content such as credit card numbers or identity numbers. You can combine DLP rules with Context Aware access levels to enforce DLP rules under certain context conditions, such as user location or device security policy.

- Examples of access level configurations that you develop in the Context-Aware Access interface in Basic mode.
- Sometimes the access levels you create in the interface are not as flexible or as robust as you would like. You can create custom access levels in Advanced mode using Common Expression Language (CEL).
Assign Context-Aware access levels to the Admin console
You can control access to the Admin console based on context by assigning Context-Aware access levels to the Admin console.
Note: Do not assign access levels to the Admin console unless you specifically need to limit the access to the Admin console by other admins.
