  1. Support account-driven user enrollment

    Initially announced at WWDC21 [1], macOS, iOS, and iPadOS devices starting with iOS15 and macOS Monterey support a workflow called account-driven user enrollment [2]. This workflow differs from the existing user enrollment methodology in that it uses a slightly different protocol and requires the implementation of a session token on the MDM provider side.

    We are interested in the account-driven workflow because it removes the need to distribute enrollment profiles or have users visit an enrollment URL and download / install the profile. The improved UX, when combined with this year's promised release of federated authentication to more providers in…

  5. Add device EID from DeviceInformationResponse.QueryResponses.ServiceSubscriptionProperty command

    Hello,

    as part of eSIM distribution it will be very nice to have EID of the devices accessible via API in device details (adding EID to portal will be also nice).

    Can you please add EID to each device from MDM command (this command is already in use by SimpleMDM for other data) https://developer.apple.com/documentation/devicemanagement/deviceinformationresponse/queryresponses/servicesubscriptionproperty

    Thank you David.

  6. Support more API profile query strings

    To get information about a custom profile through the API the only option is to list them all and then filter out the required data.

    https://api.simplemdm.com/#custom-configuration-profiles

    On a SimpleMDM instance with 100+ profiles, requesting a single page of profiles takes a very long time.

    curl https://a.simplemdm.com/api/v1/custom_configuration_profiles?limit=100 \
      -u ${API_KEY}:
    

    Running the above command takes around 20-30 seconds. However, if there were URL parameters available to map to profile attributes - ID, name, identifier, etc. - the API could return only the one or subset of profiles requested, in turn improving performance. It shouldn't take 30 seconds to return data about…

  8. Report on Rapid Security Response versions

    Apple is adding a new update type to macOS called Rapid Security Responses. These updates change the build version, but not the OS version reported. Instead, the new ProductVersionExtra (sw_vers) and SupplementalOSVersionExtra (MDM query) keys are returned to denote a specific supplemental version only when a RSR is installed. If no RSR is installed the key is not present. Similarly, when using MDM query (simulated with /usr/libexec/mdmclient QueryDeviceInformation) BuildVersion is unchanged, but SupplementalBuildVersion has the correct RSR build.

    $ sw_vers
    ProductName: macOS
    ProductVersion: 13.3
    ProductVersionExtra: (a)
    BuildVersion: 22E7752300f
    
    $ /usr/libexec/mdmclient QueryDeviceInformation
    {
      BuildVersion = 22E5230e;
      OSVersion = "13.3";

  10. Support for Munki installer_type "nopkg"

    Munki has a pkginfo key for the installer type "nopkg". In a self-hosted Munki environment, this allows pkginfo files to be added to a repository that do not have an associated .pkg or .dmg file. You can read the Munki Project docs on the feature here: https://github.com/munki/munki/wiki/nopkgs

    This has a variety of uses, because it allows Munki to be used as a general script execution tool. An admin can use any of Munki's installation conditions (package receipt, installs array, installcheck_script, or OnDemand) to then run a pre or postinstall script embedded in the pkginfo.

    One example of how this is…

  11. Respect local time zone of iOS devices when applying a software update window

    Currently, the software update window is a singular entity, which means some units in Europe would be updating in the middle of the day for units in the USA. Implementing a method to either auto-detect local time of the units or specify a time zone in the profile would help solve this.

  12. Update multiple custom attributes via API

    Currently only one custom attribute can be updated per API call either for a single device or device group.

    https://api.simplemdm.com/#set-value-for-device
    https://api.simplemdm.com/#set-value-for-group

    Say I want to set multiple custom attributes within a single workflow. I need to make as many API calls as there are attributes to update. In my recent work that's four calls which could've been one. This also simplifies developing with the API - don't have to iterate through values along with grokking associated return statuses.

    I'm requesting the functionality to update multiple custom attributes with one API call.

    PUT https://a.simplemdm.com/api/v1/devices/{DEVICE_ID}/custom_attribute_values

    Remove attribute name from endpoint URL and…

  13. API support for enabling/disabling Bluetooth of an iOS device

    I have an automated process to configure enrolled devices using SimpleMDM API, and recently there is a need to enable/disable Bluetooth depending on the device groups, which is currently not available for the API.
    I understand that I can use the restrictions profile to prevent supervised devices from changing Bluetooth settings, and I can enable/disable BT from the Devices page, but it would be great if SimpleMDM can add this ability to the API, so I can integrate it into my automated process.

  14. Add "Run Script" option to Actions menu

    A “Run Script” option in the Actions menu on both individual devices and any selected devices from a listing would be very helpful. Ideally, clicking it would pop you into the create job UI and pre-populate the “Run on” field with either that one device or any selected devices. This would speed up creating script jobs especially for multiple machines.

  18. eSIM management aka RefreshCellularPlans command

    Apple introduced iPhones completely without SIM tray in US recently (rest of the world will follow soon), command for managing eSIM is available for some time.

    Please implement RefreshCellularPlans and make available via API.

  20. Manage Non-Custom Profiles via API

    Currently the API has a customconfigurationprofiles endpoint (https://simplemdm.com/docs/api/#custom-configuration-profiles) which can be used to create, modify, and assign/unassign custom profiles. However, there is on way to manage other profile types via the API.

    Say I create a FileVault profile in the web app and then want to assign the profile only to specific Macs using the API. There's not a specific group or device I want to manually assign. Instead I only want to assign to specific endpoints programmatically using a config management tool like Chef or Ansible. Since the profile is not "custom" I am unable…
