  2. Implement Apple Kerberos SSO Extension as a profile

    This is a great tool to sync AD password to the local one. It is somewhat easy to get this done as a custom plist profile. I used the settings from Kandji MDM as reference, a guide from JAMF on how to deploy the Kerberos Extension and Imazing.com profile manager to create the plist file. Imported the custom profile in SimpleMDM, applied to Pilot group and it worked just like intended. This was easy, but it should be made standard.

    A sample plist file is available from https://github.com/ProfileCreator/ProfileManifests/issues/556

  3. 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…

  4. Improve Device Search with More Attributes

    Currently device search only supports device name, serial number, IMEI, MAC, and phone number.

    Scenarios where search doesn't return the results I need:
    - When I need to search by a custom attribute. For example, say I want to return all devices where the username attribute is "nathaniel.strauss". I am unable to since those attributes are not exposed in search. This is a common ask - "How many devices does x have?" The same holds true for any custom attribute set from SAML assertion - team, department, etc.
    - When the device name (SimpleMDM defined) doesn't match the Device Name…

  6. Filter and Sort Devices columns within the Enrollment section

    When you go to the enrollment area of SimpleMDM and choose the enrollment method, in my case, the SimpleMDM Automated Enrollment using DEP. It will list ALL of the currently sync'd devices from ABM. This is a HUGE list and you cannot sort it or filter it whatsoever. I would like the option to filter by status, color, model, etc. as well as sort them all alphabetically.

    An even bigger improvement for this requested feature would be if you add checkboxes to each line item so you can bulk update them to assign to a specific group, etc. This makes…

  7. Add the ability to mark some custom attributes as "secret"

    We're looking at pushing things like wifi passwords to devices using profiles and custom attributes... as we aim to use MIST's multiple PSK option - https://www.mist.com/documentation/multi-psk/

    Each device will have their own wifi password pushed as a custom attribute - but these are effectively passwords. It would be awesome if they could be tagged as secret (like a lot of CI/CD tools allow you to do) and we could log that an admin had viewed them (in the same way unlock PIN and Activation Lock Key access is logged now

  9. Add "1 day" to the dropdown for "When a device hasn't been seen" notification

    In your notifications section of the portal, I can select a minimum of 3
    days for the event lag:

    When a device hasn't been seen for
    3 days

    Please add an option for 1 day. Some of us need this for compliance with our security certs and auditors. Note that if someone sets this to 1 day and it's too "noisy" because people turn off their laptops on weekends or their device runs out of power during a
    holiday, then they could always switch it back to 3 days.

  11. Increase pkg accepted size for custom apps and allow for Adobe pkg upload

    I am trying to load up packages for Adobe Suite on an Feature Restricted License. So no cloud access. The total Suite size is around 28.5 GB. I am not necessarily suggesting allowing for the full suite to be uploaded in one go. I have divided out the installs and the largest install is After Effects at 5.9GB. So if the file size could be adjusted to 6000MB that would be sufficient. Photoshop is 5.5 GB, Premiere is 4.15 GB, Character is 4.08 GB. With the removal of MAC OS server support I am hopeful to transition this to be…

  12. Move Rosetta 2 install from global enrollments to per enrollment groups

    Some of our enrollments need Rosetta 2, while others we do not want them. We have to resort to adding a package to the groups that need them. It would be nice to have this option.

  13. Remote Desktop Enable API - Return HTTP 20x instead of HTTP 400 if already enabled on client

    The Remote Desktop Enable API - https://simplemdm.com/docs/api/#enable-remote-desktop - currently returns an HTTP 400 response if the device the API is called against already has this enabled. The Disable API returns an HTTP 202 error regardless of whether the feature has not been disabled or has been disabled.

    I'm not entirely sure I see the value in the Enable API returning an HTTP 400 response when a device already has it enabled. A response that returns a relevant HTTP 20x value makes more sense in this instance because the setting has already been enabled. An HTTP 400 response only makes sense…

  16. SimpleMDM Training and Certification

    Why do I ask/suggest?
    - It can be great to meet MDM certification requirements from the Apple Consultants Network (for members).
    - Learn SimpleMDM from the perspective of the creators. Like best practises, how/why things were created the way they are.
    - Impress whoever is impressed by this kind of stuff. Maybe you'll get a raise. And off course get a nice badge for your website or social media! (just kidding)
    - (add your suggestions in a reply)

  17. API: get application identifier

    In order to list the machine on which an application is installed, I intend to use /apps/{APP_ID}/installs

    Right now it is impossible to get the application identifier "APP_ID" from the API.
    The /apps endpoint returns a very limited list of known applications (probably from the catalog, but it's not very clear).

    The only way to get this APP_ID is to go through the admin web interface, go to the "Apps" section, and copy the identifier from there.

    As far as I can tell, the API is missing this feature currently.

  18. Allow bulk import of GUID and passwords for DEP-created accounts

    Allow for the bulk import of information on DEP auto-created admin accounts. An API or UI that allows for the entry of serial number, GUID, and password for accounts created before the release of the Auto Admin feature. This would permit us to get rotation of the password without having to redeploy.

  20. Scheduled App Updates for Specific Groups/Devices

    We'd like to ideally set a specific time (day of week and time) to send updates for certain apps for certain groups.

    In the meantime, is it possible to send update request to specific device/group to a a specific app with the API?

    POST https://a.simplemdm.com/api/v1/installed_apps/{INSTALLED_APP_ID}/update

    I see this as the closest, but how to set the device we want to update?

    Thanks!
