  1. Parameter Filters

    I really love how you can use parameters in many places. That said, it would be even better if we could have some simple "filters", or string functions, like many template languages have.

    E.g. I get the first and last name as custom parameters from the enrollment login. It would be great if I could set the username to something like {{first_name|lowercase}}

  2. Allow Duplicate Key Values for Managed App Configurations

    Our application, Redzone and Redzone Admin, allows for App Configurations with the following keys:
    - serverURL (string)
    - serverDescription (string)

    There are many customers who have access to multiple server's and therefore would benefit from the ability to push multiple server's to their devices. In most MDM's, we provide our customers with an XML file they can import that makes use of an array to pass multiple sites at once.

    SimpleMDM doesn't allow the upload of an PLIST/XML file to achieve this functionality, nor does it allow for duplicate key values and therefore our customers with multiple servers are unable…

  3. API: Retrieve one Custom Attribute

    Can we get API to retrieve one Custom Attribute?

    Call can be like "set value" just with get:

    HTTP Request

    GET https://a.simplemdm.com/api/v1/devices/{DEVICEID}/customattributevalues/{CUSTOMATTRIBUTE_ID}

    Response: as it is when retrieving all:

    {

    data: [
    
    {
    type: custom_attribute_value,
    id: name_of_attribute,
    attributes: {
    value: value_of_attribute
    }
    ]

    }

  4. The ability to reorganize or customize the arrangement of the Profiles page

    The Profiles page becomes cluttered by all the different profiles inserted, it would be very helpful if there was an option to organize them in maps.

  5. Change the way to edit table contents

    Change all tables to the type of device table. This would be nice if you want to change or delete content. Example: In the profile table I am always afraid to delete a wrong line.

  7. Show app version on app assignment page

    We sometimes upload different versions of the same app for assignment to different devices. On the app assignment page, it is difficult to see what version I'm assigning without actually clicking on the app link and seeing the version on the app page.

    Please show the app's version directly on the assignment page.

  8. Make "Consumed Licenses" available via API

    Make the consumed device licenses in SimpleMDM available via the API, in a new call or perhaps available via the account payload.

    This could be extended to plan details. The argument could be made that this count could be inferred from number of active devices... I don't see why this couldn't be its own API endpoint, returning an example such as:

  9. make profile removal password protected without enrolling with DEP

    This was previously declined in 2018, here: https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/34296127-make-profile-removal-password-protected-without-en

    I suspect the answer was wrong then, but it is definitely wrong now, in December 2019, for macOS 10.15.2.

    I created a one-time enrollment, downloaded the mobileconfig, stripped the signature, added a RemovalPassword via Configurator (v2.11), and installed the profile. My device then connected to SimpleMDM and downloaded the rest of the config. This is presented in the 10.15.2 Profiles Pane UI as a set of distinct profiles (1 per profile configured in SimpleMDM). None of those "mini profiles" are removable but the top level one is. When removing it, it requires…

  10. Make Lock PIN #s / Filevault Recovery Keys Available Via the API

    Same logic as Filevault Keys. Make them available via API.

    Bonus points if the new API copes could limit access to PINs/ FV keys.

  11. Webhook for "type" for DEP Authorizations

    Add an event type such as:

    {"type":"device.dep_authenticated","at":"2019-09-17T14:46:55.094+00:00", "data":{"user":{"email":"authuser@org.com"},"device"{"serial":"C012345"}}}

    The ability to trigger workflows off this and have data such as the user that authenticated the device to enroll and the serial/deviceID would be beneficial.

  12. Support clearing safari cache

    We run websites on kiosk devices with locked down url profile. Would be great to support clearing the cache, or locking the browser to private browsing mode.

  13. Add API endpoint for setting default custom profile value

    Currently, the API only allows to set a custom profile value for a device, not a default value globally.

  14. End user editable Home Screen configurations

    Allow home screen configurations to be editable by end users.

    I love and want the ability to create a starting home screen configuration for my iPad/iPhone end users - but I absolutely hate that it's then locked so they cannot change it further after that.

    Also the iPads with iOS 13 have far more built in applications than what the Home Screen configuration shows, so a dozen apps just end up stuck in the second screen. Also please expand the limit of apps in a folder to more than 9, iOS does not have that small a limitation normally.

  15. Creating a simple browser app to allow you to run (lock you down to) only 1 website ..

    There are lots of businesses that only want staff to access a certain website, but due to Apple's limitations this is impossible.
    Suggestion is to create a browser app that can be programmed for only 1 (or more) specific websites. Then integrate it with your mdm for pushing the specific needed site(s)..

  16. Show iOS version on the devices list

    The devices list is super useful and it would be great to add a column that shows the OS version. I know you can export the devices list to get this information, but it would be good to have it front-and-center.

  17. Retrieve devices in a group via the API

    Currently I have to list all of the devices in the MDM, and filter after the fact. It would be great to be able to retrieve the devices in a particular group directly.

  18. App installation dependencies for macOS

    We have some installation dependencies for applications that we're deploying to macOS, but it doesn't appear possible to specify dependencies for Apps & Media within SimpleMDM. Because of that, we're unable to control the order that those packages are installed in. It would be nice to have the ability to mark certain app install bundles as dependent upon others.

  19. Optionally Allow Webhooks to Pass Auth Headers

    Optionally allow webhooks to be configured to pass authorization headers, API Keys, as to add an additional layer of security verify authenticity of API calls from SimpleMDM to external services.
