Have a great idea that you’d like to see added to our service? Perhaps there’s an existing feature that you’d like to have extended or modified? Share it here!

  1. Automatically Sync with Apple DEP

    Please add an option to allow "Sync with Apple" to happen without admin interaction. Ideally this would sync daily with Apple's deploy.apple.com service. In our environment we purchase from an authorized reseller so they automatically assign the serial numbers to our account and we would ideally like this to sync with SimpleMDM without admin interaction.

  2. Event to hook into when a new device enrolls (e.g: webhook)

    Would be nice if it's possible to hook into some event when a device
    gets enrolled. Since I'm not able to influence the polling I would like to
    know when a new device is actually enrolled so I have an up to date start.

  4. Multiple DEP

    Multiple DEP account / configurations.

    I have two classes of devices that we need to manage. One set is very locked down and supervised. The other we don't want to be supervised and just want some basic management. It's a bit painful right now to work around this and we'd love to be able to register sets of devices with different DEP accounts directly on Apple's site.

  5. Allow enforcing of Filevault with institutional recovery key.

    In Merakis MDM solution it is possible to enforce Filevault across your fleet using an institutional recovery key. Would really really like to see this feature come to SimpleMDM.

    SimpleMDM includes personal key support with escrow. We believe this is a more secure, superior strategy to using a global institutional recovery key.

    We hope that this will fit your requirements. If it does not, we welcome your feedback on this request.

  6. Group or global level default custom attribute

    When using custom attributes for profiles, I would like the ability to have a globally defined default value for a custom attribute. This would be overridden by a group-level custom attribute (if specified), otherwise it would inherit from the global value. Finally, if the value could be overridden at the device level should that level of granularity be required.

    So the order of precedence (from lowest to highest) would be:
    • Global
    • Group
    • Device

    A use case of this is for password policies. I can create a custom password policy with a custom attribute like {{requiredlength}} to

  8. Auto Lock Device

    The ability to set the Auto Screen Lock timer at a group level.
    We already have the ability to display a message on the lock screen at a group level. Just need the ability to set the time for the Auto Lock.

    Thank you.

  9. Asset Management

    In Jamf there is a field you can enter on a device labeled "Asset Tag". It was a nice way to keep track of Asset Tag numbers without having to put it into the Device Name.

    Have you considered using a custom attribute? You can add “asset_tag” by visiting Configs > Attributes. This will then add an asset_tag field to each device under device details.

  10. Add FileVault recovery key to API device info

  14. Add macOS account creation DEP options

    Please add the account setup options to the macOS DEP options to the DEP options that SimpleMDM offers. They're described under "Account setup options (macOS only)"

    Skip is very useful in AD/directory service environments where machines are bound(I'm not part of them), and creating local admin vs local standard user is just nice for flexibility.

    http://help.apple.com/deployment/macos/#/iorc6ae28a3d?sub=apd41b4e2c167714

    "Account setup options (macOS only): You can specify how the user proceeds through the account setup portion of the macOS Setup Assistant:

    Create an administrator account: The user creates an administrator account on the Mac.

    Create a standard account: The user creates a standard…

  15. Support SAML authentication for Single Sign-On

    Having options for increased authentication security is greatly appreciated, and for our organization, is basically a hard requirement for IT systems (and is used everywhere else if at all possible).

    Having support for SAML in SimpleMDM would significantly increase our interest in using it. Anything that allows you to control company-owned devices should be extremely secure - SAML lets us use our own Identity Provider and control general access, login policies, multifactor requirements, and more.

    Preferably, the implementation would allow for JIT user creation, or even better, user creation & deactivation provisioning options (preferably via SCIM).

    For reference, we use…

  16. Support iOS 10.3 Restart Device Command

    In iOS 10.3, Apple has added support for remotely rebooting a device through an MDM command.

    This would be a great option for unattended use cases to clear errors remotely. We've had a number of requests for this type of functionality in the past and I'd love to see it supported in SimpleMDM.

  17. "Google Account" Profile Support

    We are a Google Apps shop and Apple has introduced a great profile called a "Google Account" profile. It specifically configures Email, Calendars, Contacts using Google's login and specific communication protocols (e.g. Web-based, not Exchange nor IMAP/POP).

    It works for iOS and macOS, and works very nicely to activate new devices with their Google account.

    The only requirement of the profile is the user's email address to be defined. I think this means the profile needs to be configured as a provider, exactly as you have done with Mail/VPN/etc. profiles.

    Because of this I cannot use a Custom Configuration Profile,…

  19. Custom Fields

    I would like the ability to have custom fields, more than just a notes field. Ideally would like at least "Assigned to", "Asset tag #" so this information can be exportable. The notes field works, but multiple custom fields would be much more useful.

    Custom Attributes are now available in SimpleMDM. This allows you to define fields and assign values on a per-device basis. This information is exportable through the API.

    SimpleMDM supports scenarios where more than one device object may exist for a given serial number. Additionally, device objects do not always have serial numbers attached to them. For instance, a new device record may be created before device enrollment occurs. Such being the case, a serial number cannot function as a unique ID.

    Nonetheless, the Device – List All API endpoint has been expanded to support searching for devices based on serial number, UDID, phone number, and name. This allows for more efficient device ID lookups. More information is available here: https://simplemdm.com/docs/api/#list-all39
