  1. Event to Webhook for Group membership set/changed

    If a device is add to a group receiving a webhook on such event would be great.
    The group assignment is already available via API - receiving event details + device details would help along automated workflows, audit trails etc.

  2. User Enrollment

    Please consider adding User Enrollment support, as recently demonstrated at the Apple WWDC, into the basic framework. It would make our lives infinitely easier to be able to have users logon with their AD/OKTA/PingOne/Whatever account instead of having to manage multiple accounts. Thanks.

  4. Use a different font to display firmware / recovery key

    When attempting to view the recovery key or firmware key using the font on the simplemdm website on Google Chrome / Safari on macOS capital I and lower case l are impossible to tell apart. I have to copy the key into an application with a different font to see the true key.

  5. Activity feed / History which show changes made in the portal

    Hey Simple,

    When our admins make changes, these aren't recorded anywhere. This means that when a mistake is made, we don't have a log of what change was made in order to revert this.

    It would be awesome if there was an activity feed or a history which showed any changes made by an admin in the portal.

  6. Low licence warning

    We're using pre-paid licences (rather than pay as you go with a credit card) and have hit the hard limit of seats a couple of times. Which breaks new enrolments in unpleasant ways.

    Could some kind of mechanism to auto-alert admins (or a web hook? Or and API we can call?) be added when the free seats drop below a user defined threshold so we can start the process of ordering more licences?

    The billing page now includes an option to be notified when available licenses is low. This option is available for accounts that have purchased licenses via manual invoicing.

  7. Update the SimpleMDM Name via the API

    As per your document https://docs.simplemdm.com/article/60-device-name-vs-simplemdm-name-whats-the-difference, there are two names within the console for a macOS device.

    Our DEP workflow will soon be able to update the 'Device Name' using the API (https://simplemdm.com/docs/api/#update43) but it isn't currently possible to update the 'SimpleMDM Name' in the same way.

    Could the API be updated to either a)allow changing of the 'SimpleMDM Name' explicitly using its own call and/or b) allow the 'Device Name' call to also update the 'SimpleMDM Name' using a boolean flag to do so.

  8. Include device vs. user profile and attribute support for custom configuration profiles in API

    Include the status of the "For macOS devices, deploy as a device profile instead of a user profile" and "Enable attribute support" checkboxes for custom configuration profiles in the API. The ability to check the current status (i.e., whether these are true or false), set/change them, and set them when uploading custom config profiles through the API would be useful.

  9. Reveal sidebar categories in all contexts

    On the left side of the main view, I'd like to be able to see all the links for all contexts all the time. So often when I'm working on a new deployment, I find myself switching from Devices --> Groups to Apps --> Assignments to Configs --> Providers. If the sub-contexts for Config (eg Profiles Providers Certificates Attributes) were visible when I'm editing Devices --> Groups, it would save me a click and help me build a better mental map of where everything is. I sometimes find myself clicking around looking for which context has the right sub-context I…

  11. Reset Firmware

    An easy way to remove an EFI Firmware Password from a users device (Maybe a click button in the console where the password is displayed?) and also a way to re-apply it more easily after performing SMC (System Management Controller) and PRAM/NVRAM (Parameter Random Access Memory / Non-Volatile RAM) resets. (I contacted support beforehand. Even better would be a way to push an SMC reset to the machine, or PRAM, but I don't think this would be possible???

    At the moment, I am booting into recovery on a users device, turning the EFI PW off, restarting, performing a SMC reset…

  12. Integration with Google LDAP for user enrolment

    Google now has LDAP service but this requires the LDAP client be able to use a certificate to connect to the server. this would need to be added to simple MDM capabilities.

    SAML-based authentication during the enrollment process is now supported by SimpleMDM. We support authenticating against Google with SAML over LDAP to achieve the same results.

  13. Scope API key

    I'd like multiple API keys able to be generated in the UI that have scoped permissions, for example, one API key restricted to only being able to hit the device endpoint, or one API key only being able to access Users.

    With this feature, it would reduce the threat of the API key being compromised as it's potential scope would be limited.

  14. Add firewall profile support

    It would be great to add a configuration profile to force enabling the firewall on a mac machine. I am very surprised that it isn't an option, there are other mdm solutions that offer this and it seems pretty basic for ensuring security.

  15. mdm eventlog

    Add a detailed EventLog in the MDM.

    It would be nice to know if commands/messages were successfully sent to a device.

  16. Allow unlimited apps in folders of "Home Screen Layout" profiles

    As far as I know, iOS does not limit the number of app in one folder, but currently with SimpleMDM interface to manager home screen layout we are limited to 9 apps per folder.

  17. update software on an individual device via the API

    As discussed in Slack - there's currently an "update_apps" command in the API - but that only applies to device groups. I'd like to be able to update software on an individual device via the API.

    i.e. to push a test device to the latest and greatest, but leaving other devices on the standard version...

    There's a button to do this in the GUI, so I'm hoping adding that to the API shouldn't be too bad?

  18. add an "auto-join" feature to wifi profiles

    I've noticed that configurator (and other MDMs) have an "auto-join" option that can be set when you create a wifi profile. I think this might help solve an issue we're having where we can't force devices onto a specific network. I'm hoping that judicious use of "auto-join" will allow us to select the correct network for a device via SimpleMDM
