  1. Devices API should indicate if phone is in lost mode

    The following API

    GET https://a.simplemdm.com/api/v1/devices

    Lists detailed information about the device status under attributes.

    We would like to see an additional attribute for when the device was placed in lost mode and if the device is currently in lost mode.

    For example:

    {
    "is_in_lost_mode": true,
    "lost_mode_active_at": "2021-07-13T16:00:54.000-07:00",
    }

    Since we have a large fleet of devices, we periodically place some of that fleet into lost mode if they go missing, using your existing API.

    We would like to build out reporting which would require having lost mode information available in the API.

    The "lost_mode_enabled" key has been added to the Devices API.


    The Logs API can be used to get "lost_mode.enabled" logs to see when the device issued a response indicating that it received the "Enable Lost Mode" command successfully.

  4. Specify package install order during prestage

    The prestage_installer pkg that gets used when more than one pkg is assigned to a device group doesn't currently have a method to specify installation.

    Some vendors supply their products as multiple packages and some have dependencies of one being installed before another (see: jamf Connect trying to run the installed app if it doesn't detect a LaunchAgent on disk that is installed by another .pkg). For reasons like this, being able to guarantee the order of pkg installation is key.

    This request is to implement a way to specify the order of installation from the portal that is used…

  5. Add a column to the device export list for "Filevault key escrowed"

    When reviewing devices, it would be helpful to see which devices have FileVault enabled but if the key is not escrowed to the MDM.

    The "FDE Recovery Key Stored" column has been added to the "Export Devices" CSV.

  6. Add extra fields to the device list

    The device list currently displays:
    Device Name Initial Group Model Status Serial Number Enrollment

    It would be useful to be able to customize the fields being shown to include or exclude any of the fields available, including custom attribute fields.

    Custom attributes and additional fields can now be displayed on the devices index page. Click the gear in the table to select more columns.

    If there are additional specific attributes you would like, please create a new request.

  7. Implement FileVault recovery key rotation in UI

    It would be convenient to be able to rotate FileVault recovery keys from within the SimpleMDM UI as documented here: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/devicemanagement/rotate_the_filevault_key rather than running the fdesetup Terminal command via script or using the API to accomplish this.

    Hi Eddie,

    Thanks for the post. This option is already supported in SimpleMDM. It is available when the existing recovery key is stored in MDM.



  8. Add Device Group Custom Attributes to API

    There is currently not a way to read or set the custom attributes of a device group from the API. In order to pull this information into external systems, the API is needed.

  10. Display Architecture of App in Shared Catalog

    Many apps now offer separate Intel, Apple Silicon & Universal Binary builds. Knowing which version is available in the shared app catalog will be very useful during the architecture transition.

  11. Add FileMaker to macOS shared apps.

  15. Implement Login Window MDM payload settings for Apple devices

    Please consider implementing the Login Window MDM payload settings for Apple devices so that we can assign loginwindow settings (e.g., name/password vs. icon, login banner, etc.) for the loginwindow of macOS devices.

    This feature is discussed here: https://support.apple.com/guide/mdm/login-window-payload-settings-mdm2a822b29/web.

  17. list which groups are assigned a profile in the Profiles UI

    In the Profile UI I can see how many groups are assigned the profile, but I can't see which groups those are.

    This request is to add some sort of UI to display which group names (and maybe a direct link to said group) are assigned the profile. It would make troubleshooting the discovery of which group is missing the profile easier, etc.

    A list of groups with a specific profile assigned can now be viewed in the admin interface. To view the groups with a profile assigned, go to the Profiles page, look under the "Groups Assigned" column next to the profile name. If the profile is assigned to any groups, you can click the number to view those groups.

  18. Support 'SetRecoveryLock' and 'VerifyRecoveryLock' commands via Portal and API

  19. Enable Remote Management

    Apple docs suggest there is an Enable Remote Management MDM command available, I can also see Remote Desktop Enabled as a field in the device Security section- would be useful to have a per device / per group option to enable this for the MDM-generated admin account. Handy for those of us still using ARD, and easier than signing up for a developer account building a signed package just to run a shell script.

    Since this request was posted, we've added many additional options for enabling notifications for accounts. If there is a specific notification that has not been addressed or some cadence that you'd like to see added, please do not hesitate to submit a new suggestion.
