  1. Idempotence

    Something akin to "Smart Groups" in JamfPro. AKA a method to scope scripting/app deployments to only nodes that, by definition, need it.

    Puppet calls this Idempotency

    Ideally we'd be able to create a "Smart Group" in SimpleMDM to show us all machines running lower than a currently desired version of application X. We could then target our deployment to said group. As the deployment delivers, nodes drop dynamically out of the "Smart Group", as the deployment has satisfied the requirements we have defined.

  3. Support "Non-Removable" flag on deployed iOS Store Apps

    As noted here on the SimpleMDM blog, an option was added to iOS starting in 14.x where individual apps can be marked as "non-removable" by the administrator when being deployed.

    https://simplemdm.com/blog/mdm-ios-14-macos-11-big-sur/
    https://it-training.apple.com/tutorials/deployment/dm195

    "To prevent a user from uninstalling a managed app, mark the app as nonremovable when you assign the managed app to a user or device. Depending on your MDM solution, you might need to deselect a Removable attribute or set a nonremovable attribute. With your MDM solution, you may also be able to set this attribute on apps that are already installed on a device."

    I feel it…

  4. Provide a mechanism to assign profiles and applications based on attribute values.

    I'd really like to assign apps and profiles based on attributes collected by an enrollment customization welcome screen form.

  5. Nested Custom Attributes

    Description: It would be extremely useful to have the ability to nest custom attributes in SimpleMDM. This feature would allow administrators to create custom attributes that reference or depend on other custom attributes, enabling dynamic and interconnected data management.

    Use Case: For instance, suppose an organization has a custom attribute called "munkimanifestdepartement" that is a dropdown value in the DEP (Device Enrollment Program) welcome screen. The organization also wants to create another custom attribute called "munkimanifest" that includes the department value selected in "munkimanifestdepartement" along with additional static text. By nesting the custom attribute "munki

  6. Regex Rules for Custom Attribute Validation

    Description: It would be highly beneficial to have the ability to use regular expressions (regex) to validate user-defined custom attributes in SimpleMDM. This feature would allow administrators to set specific rules and patterns that user inputs must adhere to, ensuring data accuracy and consistency.

    Use Case: For example, suppose an organization has a custom attribute for employee IDs. By implementing regex rules, the administrator can define that the employee ID must follow a specific format, such as a combination of letters and numbers. Any user input that does not match the defined regex pattern would be flagged as invalid, preventing…

  8. 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…

  9. More granularity on the SimpleMDM menu bar icon...

    So, we've just rolled out Nudge and have used the SimpleMDM agent to do so. And now I'm being grumbled at about the Managed Software Centre Icon taking up valuable menu bar space...

    I appreciate I can kill it via the UI - but it's a bit all or nothing, and when we start adding apps to self-service, the menu bar app seems as good a place as any to direct our end users.

    So - can we set icon visibility per assignment group?

    I think what I'm basically saying is if all apps are managed, and there's no self-service…

  10. API device profile install status

    In webUI you can see the profile install status, but in API you can only see "assigned" and no visibility of whether it installed or not. This is useful information, particularly in my case when assigning a SCEP profile where the CA is in corporate network. The profile install frequently fails due to devices being off LAN.
    This could be an install status when querying device/profiles or an installed profile list when querying devices, which we'd compare to assigned profiles.

  11. Expand Webhook triggers

    If we had the ability to choose which webhook events to subscribe per endpoint (https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/46289557-support-choosing-which-webhook-events-to-subscribe), the addition of more triggers would be valuable in automating and validating workflows.
    Here are some of the possible triggers:
    abm.device.removed
    profile.added
    profile.updated
    profile.removed
    application.added
    application.updated
    application.removed
    script.added
    script.updated
    script.removed
    script.job.run

  12. Add notification option for when enterprise certificate is expiring

    Currently when an enterprise certificate is expiring, the only place to see that is on the SimpleMDM site at the top of the Devices page.

    We develop custom apps and push them to SimpleMDM with the API, so we don't log in that often which means we could easily miss these alerts. This could lead to lost productivity for our internal users.

    Please allow us to send notifications to specified user(s) when an enterprise certificate is about to expire.

    It would be nice if one or more time intervals could be selected as well, like you can for VPN and…

    When modifying custom configuration profiles in the web UI, there's an optional field for "Description (Optional description presented to the end user.)", which isn't exposed via the API.

  19. 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…
