  1. Improve Device Search with More Attributes

    Currently device search only supports device name, serial number, IMEI, MAC, and phone number.

    Scenarios where search doesn't return the results I need:
    - When I need to search by a custom attribute. For example, say I want to return all devices where the username attribute is "nathaniel.strauss". I am unable to since those attributes are not exposed in search. This is a common ask - "How many devices does x have?" The same holds true for any custom attribute set from SAML assertion - team, department, etc.
    - When the device name (SimpleMDM defined) doesn't match the Device Name…

  2. Update multiple custom attributes via API

    Currently only one custom attribute can be updated per API call either for a single device or device group.

    https://api.simplemdm.com/#set-value-for-device
    https://api.simplemdm.com/#set-value-for-group

    Say I want to set multiple custom attributes within a single workflow. I need to make as many API calls as there are attributes to update. In my recent work that's four calls which could've been one. This also simplifies developing with the API - don't have to iterate through values along with grokking associated return statuses.

    I'm requesting the functionality to update multiple custom attributes with one API call.

    PUT https://a.simplemdm.com/api/v1/devices/{DEVICE_ID}/custom_attribute_values

    Remove attribute name from endpoint URL and…

  3. Add column sorting to all columns across SimpleMDM

    For example, under Devices > Enrollments > [MDM Server] > DEP Info, none of the columns (S/N, Model, Color, Last DEP Check-In, Linked Device, Status) can be sorted.

    Another example is Config > Profiles. Only the "Type" column can be sorted, but none of the other columns.

    I realize we can search and filter on these same pages, but it would be helpful to have sort options as well.

  4. Include copy button for admin password.

    With the escrowed admin password feature, it would be helpful to include a small copy button (similar to those seen on code training/doc sites) to easily copy the password.

    As it is now, if you reveal the password, then triple click to select, you end up grabbing a carriage return (and text styling) that will make the password invalid when pasted.

  5. eSIM management aka RefreshCellularPlans command

    Apple introduced iPhones completely without SIM tray in US recently (rest of the world will follow soon), command for managing eSIM is available for some time.

    Implementing command RefreshCellularPlans will help us to streamline our SIM deployment to our users and get rid of plastic waste.

    Please implement RefreshCellularPlans and make available via API.

  7. Add a Log tab to the device detail view

    When viewing the Device Details, having a Log tab to have just the log entires for that device readily available would be great. Currently I have to copy the SN, click on the Logs view, paste the serial number and then if I want more device details I have to go back to the device detail.

    Having a log view of just that devices activity in the device detail would keep all the device details in one location.

  8. SimpleMDM Training and Certification

    Why do I ask/suggest?
    - It can be great to meet MDM certification requirements from the Apple Consultants Network (for members).
    - Learn SimpleMDM from the perspective of the creators. Like best practises, how/why things were created the way they are.
    - Impress whoever is impressed by this kind of stuff. Maybe you'll get a raise. And off course get a nice badge for your website or social media! (just kidding)
    - (add your suggestions in a reply)

  9. Allow bulk import of GUID and passwords for DEP-created accounts

    Allow for the bulk import of information on DEP auto-created admin accounts. An API or UI that allows for the entry of serial number, GUID, and password for accounts created before the release of the Auto Admin feature. This would permit us to get rotation of the password without having to redeploy.

  10. Allow password rotations via API

    Now that firmware and recovery lock passwords may be rotated via the web interface, it would be great to have that functionality available via the API as well.

  11. Specify package install order on joining an app assignment group

    I can see that this request has been marked completed:

    https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/44830375-specify-package-install-order-during-prestage

    and I've tested the package order stuff in our environment - and it works really well... but ONLY for pre-stage setups. And they don't always work.

    So - if an end user needs to manually enrol a device either via an enrolment link or a sudo profiles -N command to re-trigger an automated enrolment then all that awesome install logic disappears, and the packages get installed in what seems to be a random order. As Eric says in that feature request:

    "Some vendors supply their products as multiple packages…

  12. Limit API Scope to Group

    Would love the ability to limit a specific API key to only access specific group devices. I would like to develop something to wipe devices for some automation in some build farms, but would not want to give the users the ability to wipe any device from the key.

  16. Run scripts based off certain parameters.

    Ex: If certain apps aren’t downloaded when the Mac is scanned every hour it runs the specified script or scripts.

    Basically add If statements to install apps and run scripts.

  17. Assign profiles to multiple groups from the Profiles Action menu

    There's no easy way to assign a single profile to multiple groups at once. Instead, I have to go to the Groups view and click on each group I want to add the profile to, click the profile tab, click Assign Profile, find the Profile I want to add, then click the Assign button. Doing that for each group is tedious.

    Instead, I suggest the Profiles view have an option in the Action button to be able to add whichever Profiles are selected to add to Groups. I imagine the resulting view would be a list of groups with a…

  18. Profiles API - add/set attributes for OS type, min and max OS version, and Mac architecture

    The current profiles API method to list all profiles doesn't return the scope data that is configured in the management console, and there are no means to set these attributes via API methods (per https://api.simplemdm.com/#profiles as at 2022-09-26).

    Please update the list all and retrieve one methods to return this scope data.

    Please also add a method to update existing profiles with values for this scope data.

    The scope attributes specifically are:
    - setting the OS type
    - setting the minimum macOS version the profile can be installed on
    - setting the maximum macOS version the profile can be installed…

  19. Allow Log Filter to Include API

    Currently when filtering the Logs, you can filter by the user making the change, but you cannot filter by API key. I would like the ability to quickly see the recent logs that the API has made.
    This may be classified as a bug, but was asked to submit here anyway.

  20. Filter and Sort Devices columns within the Enrollment section

    When you go to the enrollment area of SimpleMDM and choose the enrollment method, in my case, the SimpleMDM Automated Enrollment using DEP. It will list ALL of the currently sync'd devices from ABM. This is a HUGE list and you cannot sort it or filter it whatsoever. I would like the option to filter by status, color, model, etc. as well as sort them all alphabetically.

    An even bigger improvement for this requested feature would be if you add checkboxes to each line item so you can bulk update them to assign to a specific group, etc. This makes…
