  1. Profiles API - add upload/create custom profile method

    The profiles API endpoint doesn't have a method of uploading a custom configuration profile. This means it is not possible to create custom profiles and upload them to SimpleMDM, and then automatically create device group relationships and or assigning scopes to those custom profiles.

    An example where this would be useful is where profiles are managed within a git repo and pushed to SimpleMDM via automated workflows when these profiles are updated with new payloads.

    This upload/create method should also include settings for creating an assignment scope (for example, setting the OS type the profile can be applied to, the…

  2. 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.

    I'm marking this one as closed/completed because, since the initial release of this feature, we added the ability to reset admin passwords for an auto-admin account regardless of whether or not the password was already stored. I believe the current functionality achieves the original intent of this suggestion. If there is additional functionality you'd like to see added related to this, please submit a new suggestion.

  3. Implement Apple Kerberos SSO Extension as a profile

    This is a great tool to sync AD password to the local one. It is somewhat easy to get this done as a custom plist profile. I used the settings from Kandji MDM as reference, a guide from JAMF on how to deploy the Kerberos Extension and Imazing.com profile manager to create the plist file. Imported the custom profile in SimpleMDM, applied to Pilot group and it worked just like intended. This was easy, but it should be made standard.

    A sample plist file is available from https://github.com/ProfileCreator/ProfileManifests/issues/556

  4. Add Mactracker to Shared App library.

    I'd like to have Mactracker added to the Shared App library. The non MAS version is preferred so I can add it to Munki as an optional install. Thanks!

  5. Munki Integration : On-Demand installation

    I wish that the Munki "OnDemand" key that is planned for a PkgInfo is exposed in the declaration of a package in SimpleMDM. That would offer to trigger the installation of a package as needed without an instal / remove cycle.

  6. Expose assignment count for custom profiles via API

    The internal API for profile search https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/profiles.json returns the number of groups and devices assigned to a profile as groupCount and deviceCount.

    Exposing this information to the customconfigurationprofiles "list all" endpoint would make it possible to add a scheduled job to cleanup profiles with 0 installs, so the UI doesn't get clogged up with outdated profiles.

  8. Add the ability to mark some custom attributes as "secret"

    We're looking at pushing things like wifi passwords to devices using profiles and custom attributes... as we aim to use MIST's multiple PSK option - https://www.mist.com/documentation/multi-psk/

    Each device will have their own wifi password pushed as a custom attribute - but these are effectively passwords. It would be awesome if they could be tagged as secret (like a lot of CI/CD tools allow you to do) and we could log that an admin had viewed them (in the same way unlock PIN and Activation Lock Key access is logged now

    When editing a custom attribute via Configs > Attributes, you can now select "Mark as secret". When checked, this will prevent users with "Custom attributes marked as secret" permissions disabled for their user role from seeing the values stored for these attributes.

  10. Implement "SetAutoAdminPassword" to allow DEP created admin account password rotation

    SetAutoAdminPassword allows changing the password of a local admin account that was created by Setup
    Assistant during DEP enrollment via the AccountConfiguration command. It is available in macOS v10.11 and
    later. This would be useful to allow admin password rotation. Ideally this would also available via the API.

  11. Add Slack universal installer to Shared Apps

    I found that Slack has a universal installer available on their website, but only the Intel version is in the Shared Apps library. It would be nice to be able to push the universal version from Shared Apps instead/in addition.

    (link here, under the "Distribute Slack" section: https://slack.com/help/articles/360035635174-Deploy-Slack-for-macOS)

    Scripts and jobs to run them are a fantastic addition but the jobs are single use at that this stage.

    The ability to schedule jobs seems like the next logical iteration.

  13. Add Scripts and Script Jobs to API

    Feature Request: Add Scripts and Script Jobs to API

    Currently the "Scripts" and "Script Jobs" functionality is only supported when using the SimpleMDM web console via a browser.

    With the goal to support custom advanced automation for our machine provisioning processes and integration with other configuration management systems, we need the ability to:

    Requirements:

    • Create/Update (Upload) and Delete Scripts
      • Support multipart/form-data by default (similar to other SimpleMDM APIs)
    • List and Get Scripts, including:
      • Script ID
      • Script name
      • Full script contents
      • Created/Updated timestamps
    • Create Script Jobs
    • List Script Jobs
    • Get Job Status
    • Get Job Log /…

    This has been implemented. Please see our documentation for more information:


    If there are additions/changes you would like to see, please submit a new suggestion. Also, thank you for the very detailed description!

  14. API: get application identifier

    In order to list the machine on which an application is installed, I intend to use /apps/{APP_ID}/installs

    Right now it is impossible to get the application identifier "APP_ID" from the API.
    The /apps endpoint returns a very limited list of known applications (probably from the catalog, but it's not very clear).

    The only way to get this APP_ID is to go through the admin web interface, go to the "Apps" section, and copy the identifier from there.

    As far as I can tell, the API is missing this feature currently.

    The APP_ID for an app can be obtained from the Apps List All endpoint here: https://api.simplemdm.com/#list-all


    As it stands, we recommend using this endpoint to get a list of IDs. However, this endpoint only returns apps in your account's Catalog. If there is some additional functionality you are looking for, please submit a new suggestion.

  16. Permit override of receipts or installs keys in Munki pkginfo

    Related to this feature request: https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/40986322-fully-support-the-munki-pkgingo-plist

    As per the documentation (https://help.pdq.com/hc/en-us/articles/6430464122907-Custom-PkgInfo-for-Munki-apps) the following keys are not permitted to overridden by the user:

    installs
    receipts

    I believe the intent of the restriction on these in the manifest is to prevent installation issues, but these keys are vitally important to fix the installation of packages that include sub packages that are not always installed.

    Without being able to override these options, some packages that include a large amount of sub packages that are not always installed (for example, architecture specific ones) will get stuck in a state where Munki believes…

    We have added the ability to set the "receipts" key in the custom PkgInfo. From what I currently understand, this should solve most scenarios, but if the "installs" key is also necessary for your use-case (or any other PkgInfo keys), please submit a new suggestion and/or email us at [email protected] and let us know. Thanks!

    Custom icons can now be uploaded for custom apps & nopkgs that are deployed using SimpleMDM's hosted Munki integration. When enabled, the Managed Software Center will display the provided custom icon. 


    Please note: Once the app is installed, the application will still use whichever icon was specified in the pkg/dmg. Additionally, custom pkgs that are only eligible for deployment via the MDM protocol do not currently support custom icons. This would require the pkg itself to be modified.

  19. Allow admins to set 'Remote Desktop Enabled' for all devices

    A freshly built macOS 12.1 machine can only have Remote Desktop / screen sharing enabled using MDM. Currently, this can only be done on a per machine basis using 'Enable Remote Desktop' option or API call. It would be great if we could: -

    1. Set 'Remote Desktop Enabled' at a global level for all macOS devices that are in SimpleMDM.

    2. Have the ability to set it on multiple machines at once by ticking the box next to the device and setting from the 'Actions' menu.

    Remote Desktop can now be enabled/disabled on multiple devices at once via the main Devices page, as well as enabled automatically when a device enrolls. To enable this for enrollments, see the option under Enrollments > Settings.

  20. Support a device's local time for Software Update Policy for iOS profiles

    Currently the start hour and end hour for the profile is based on the account's time zone in the settings. Since we operate devices around the globe, we'd like to easily set one time frame for all devices across our sites. E.g. 7pm to 7am and a checkbox enabled for "Use device's local time".
