  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. Support for Munki installer_type "nopkg"

    Munki has a pkginfo key for the installer type "nopkg". In a self-hosted Munki environment, this allows pkginfo files to be added to a repository that do not have an associated .pkg or .dmg file. You can read the Munki Project docs on the feature here: https://github.com/munki/munki/wiki/nopkgs

    This has a variety of uses, because it allows Munki to be used as a general script execution tool. An admin can use any of Munki's installation conditions (package receipt, installs array, installcheck_script, or OnDemand) to then run a pre or postinstall script embedded in the pkginfo.

    One example of how this is…

  3. Show all apps on all devices, enriched with metadata & approval-management

    Currently I can see a list of all installed apps for one device at a time. I would love to have an overview of ALL the apps across ALL managed devices.
    My use case: We allow users to install apps themselves, but they need to be approved. I would like to see all apps, filter out the system apps (like "AirDrop"), and then see which apps are only on a single/a few devices.

    Additionally:
    * I want to see if an app is notarized/from the App Store, since any malware app can just call itself "Calendar.app".
    * I want…

  4. Enforce matching name and device_name fields

    Note: Due to formatting, not including the _ underscore in device name. Everything was italics.

    SimpleMDM has two name values for each device - "name" and "device name". "name" is the value used in the device list (https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices) and the header of a device record. "device name" is the actual hostname set locally. If the hostname changes on device, it will change in SimpleMDM on next inventory refresh. Similarly, "device name" can be edited manually in SimpleMDM and a MDM command will be issued to update it on device.

    What if "device name" changes at any point…

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. allow user roles who (only) see their own device

    The idea here is to make our employees trust in the MDM solution. I'd like to give them read-only-access to SimpleMDM to see
    1) what is configured
    2) what I can see about their device
    3) what is NOT possible (I frequently get the question "can you read my e-mail now?")

    Currently, the lowest level of access still allows to see ALL settings, accounts and apps installed on ANY device.

    Being able to restrict the app-listing (similar to the settings in "Allow secret information visibility") would be a helpful feature.

    Even better would be linking the SAML-identity from the Enrollment…

  10. 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)

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Add Enrollment Date to Devices list page

    It would be super helpful when applying sorting to be able to sort by Enrollment Date - right now, only the Status and Last Seen are available. Can you please add Enrollment Date to the list of available columns?

  16. Mapping Scripts to Group(s)

    What we are concretely looking for is the possibility of mapping one or more individual Scripts to a Group, so when the enrollment process is running, it also executes the script(s) at the end. For example, a custom script that enables SSH on the Mac device.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.
