  1. Allow devices to be marked as unmanaged

    Another idea to borrow from Jamf Pro. Please consider allowing SimpleMDM customers to mark devices as unmanaged in order to keep them for historical or data purposes without them actively being under management and NOT taking up a license. An unmanaged device would keep the same config, but not have the ability to interact with MDM moving forward. No profile installs, polling for device info, etc. It is a record stuck in time. Devices should be able to move freely between managed/unmanaged through the GUI and API.

    As it today, every device which exists in a SimpleMDM tenant takes up…

  2. Reject enrollments for unsupported macOS versions when using SAML

    I am requesting SimpleMDM add guards for ADE where a macOS device is under 10.15. Copying directly from enrollment authentication config...

    "OSes prior to macOS 10.15 and iOS 13 using Automated Enrollment and all devices enrolled with Apple Configurator do not support SAML authentication and will not be authenticated. Optionally enroll them in a less secure initial device group."

    A helpful setting for sure since it means a device can be dropped into a group with no access to organization profiles, packages, or secrets. However, the device is still allowed to enroll and takes up a license. If that Mac…

  3. Sort the Scripts -> Jobs -> History tab by newest to oldest by default

    Right now, the sorting is by name (I think?) which is not useful. It would be great to show the most recently queued jobs in the history first by default.

  4. Allow SimpleMDM to release devices in ABM/ASM

    Allow SimpleMDM to release devices without having to sign in to Apple Business Manager. This feature is enabled by default when you add an MDM server in ABM/ASM. You can remove this feature by deselecting the option for any new or existing MDM servers you created.

    But SimpleMDM has not implemented this feature yet. Would be nice to automate the decommissioning process of the devices.

  5. Allow entry of Custom Integers for Software Update Delay Fields in Restrictions Payload

    Currently we only have the option to choose from predefined options in the dropdown list as shown below.
    Please add the ability to add a custom ineger up to the maximum allowed by Apple.

  6. Add support for ZIP and XIP as well as DMG

    A fair number of apps are distributed as ZIPs (and one prominent app uses XIPs) instead of DMGs. It would be convenient to be able to upload these as is, instead of having to locally convert them to DMGs first $(unzip App.zip && hdiutil create -format ULMO -o App.dmg -srcfolder App.app)

  7. Allow before/after (un)installation script overrides for shared apps

    This would enable one to benefit from shared auto-updating apps while applying useful improvements such as /Applications/Docker.app/Contents/MacOS/Docker --unattended --install-privileged-components.

  9. Report on profile status - pending, installed, failed

    SimpleMDM currently only surfaces profile assignment in the main profiles UI. To see the status of a specific profile on a device an admin must navigate to a device record. What information isn't readily available is the status of a profile. Even if it's assigned to 100 devices, there's no way to tell how many of those devices the profile successfully installed.

    Specifically asking...
    - Add three columns to the view at /profiles in the UI - installed, pending, failed.
    - In the profiles and custom profiles API endpoints include data about these status as well.

    The major driver behind…

  11. New notification options

    I'd love for a lot more notification options. Given SimpleMDM's position on the device already, it hopefully shouldn't be too heavy of a lift.

    • New User added
    • User priv changes
    • OS update skipped
    • Device visible (after being offline)

    This is off the top of my head, but I'm sure I could come up with quite a few more given some time.

  12. Allow a scheduled rotation of auto-admin passwords

    I'd like to see the ability for SimpleMDM to auto-rotate admin passwords on a specified schedule. Right now that task is only completed by the UI or an API script. The UI clicking is impossible with 1000s of machines and scripting it with an API call takes hours to run. Having an automated schedule inside the UI to auto-rotate every month or so would remove the chore of password rotation.

  13. Allow setting scope values when uploading a new Custom Configuration Profile via API

    When using the SimpleMDM portal to upload a new custom configuration profile, you are able to define a scope for the profile - targeted OS, min/max OS version, and Mac architecture.

    It would be useful to be able to define these values via the Create (POST) custom_configuration_profiles API [https://api.simplemdm.com/#create-4].

  15. Enrollment Setting - Unassign Profiles at Re-Enrollment

    We heavily utilize individually assigned profiles for Macs. There are also a few default profiles assigned via group. When a new out-of-box Mac is being enrolled for the first time only those default profiles are installed (around 5). Profiles are installed quickly and reliably. Later on during provisioning our configuration management tool handles installing other required per device profiles.

    However, when a Mac from stock is being re-enrolled to be used by another person, every previously assigned profile is installed at setup assistant. Since in my case those individually assigned profiles are usually per user, team, department, etc. and no…

  16. Add a Comments Field to Login/Background Item Management Profile

    Some of the Rule Type values (Team IDs, for example) for the Login and Background Item Management are a bit abstract, and it would be useful to have a comment/description field added to allow an administrator to describe in plain language what a the Rule Type value applies to.

  17. 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.

  20. Implement "force password change when the user authenticates"

    As per https://support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/deployment/dep4d6a472a/web, Apple has an API for forcing a user password change. This is useful when updating password policy - passwords that met the old policy but no longer meet the new policy are not evaluated and forced to change. This setting, however, would make it so.
