  1. Communicate New Shared App Versions to Administrators

    I would like to be able to have one or more SimpleMDM administrators in a SimpleMDM tenant be notified via email, Slack integration, or other methodologies when SimpleMDM's team adds a new version of a Shared Munki application to the Catalog.

    This would facilitate clearer communication of the existence of new app versions in a scenario where we are not simply choosing to install the latest version of everything from the Shared app catalog.

  2. allow download of native SimpleMDM Profiles

    Custom Configuration profiles are able to be downloaded from the portal but not profiles that were created in the SimpleMDM portal UI.

    As an admin it would be great to be able to download the raw profile from the server for a number of reasons:
    1) Documentation
    2) Version control
    3) Sanity of knowing what is being delivered to systems
    4) Save time to not have to find a machine with the profile scoped and parse the output of profiles, which isn't the raw profile in it's full either.

    Thanks,
    Eric

  3. Add Enrollment Date to Devices list page

    It would be super helpful when applying sorting to be able to sort by Enrollment Date - right now, only the Status and Last Seen are available. Can you please add Enrollment Date to the list of available columns?

  4. Display the Raw Payload Key when hovering over Human Readable descriptions

    Apple's documentation for payload keys (e.g. Restrictions - https://developer.apple.com/documentation/devicemanagement/restrictions) and the translated human readable description in the SimpleMDM Profile creation UI can cause confusion because what is described may not be obvious what key is actually being set.

    I suggest when hovering over the Simple UI description in the SimpleMDM portal the actual, raw payload Key be displayed so there is no confusion as to what preference that is setting.

    For instance, if I hover over "Allow restricting USB connections if locked" in the Restrictions Profile, it should show "allowUSBRestrictedMode".

  5. Mapping Scripts to Group(s)

    What we are concretely looking for is the possibility of mapping one or more individual Scripts to a Group, so when the enrollment process is running, it also executes the script(s) at the end. For example, a custom script that enables SSH on the Mac device.

  6. allow user roles who (only) see their own device

    The idea here is to make our employees trust in the MDM solution. I'd like to give them read-only-access to SimpleMDM to see
    1) what is configured
    2) what I can see about their device
    3) what is NOT possible (I frequently get the question "can you read my e-mail now?")

    Currently, the lowest level of access still allows to see ALL settings, accounts and apps installed on ANY device.

    Being able to restrict the app-listing (similar to the settings in "Allow secret information visibility") would be a helpful feature.

    Even better would be linking the SAML-identity from the Enrollment…

  7. Show all apps on all devices, enriched with metadata & approval-management

    Currently I can see a list of all installed apps for one device at a time. I would love to have an overview of ALL the apps across ALL managed devices.
    My use case: We allow users to install apps themselves, but they need to be approved. I would like to see all apps, filter out the system apps (like "AirDrop"), and then see which apps are only on a single/a few devices.

    Additionally:
    * I want to see if an app is notarized/from the App Store, since any malware app can just call itself "Calendar.app".
    * I want…

    Since other JetBrains IDEs are in the Shared App Catalog, please add the JetBrains Toolbox, which is the JetBrains equivalent to the Adobe Creative Cloud installer.

  11. pause kiosk mode

    Pause Kiosk mode when needed for quick fixes then "resume kiosk mode" option to turn back on once problem solved that required Kiosk mode to be disabled. Timed resumption if no inputs made would be great, Example from ManageEngine MDM attached, very useful.

  12. 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…

  14. Run scripts based off certain parameters.

    Ex: If certain apps aren’t downloaded when the Mac is scanned every hour it runs the specified script or scripts.

    Basically add If statements to install apps and run scripts.

  15. Assign profiles to multiple groups from the Profiles Action menu

    There's no easy way to assign a single profile to multiple groups at once. Instead, I have to go to the Groups view and click on each group I want to add the profile to, click the profile tab, click Assign Profile, find the Profile I want to add, then click the Assign button. Doing that for each group is tedious.

    Instead, I suggest the Profiles view have an option in the Action button to be able to add whichever Profiles are selected to add to Groups. I imagine the resulting view would be a list of groups with a…

  16. Add a Log tab to the device detail view

    When viewing the Device Details, having a Log tab to have just the log entires for that device readily available would be great. Currently I have to copy the SN, click on the Logs view, paste the serial number and then if I want more device details I have to go back to the device detail.

    Having a log view of just that devices activity in the device detail would keep all the device details in one location.

  17. Profiles API - add/set attributes for OS type, min and max OS version, and Mac architecture

    The current profiles API method to list all profiles doesn't return the scope data that is configured in the management console, and there are no means to set these attributes via API methods (per https://api.simplemdm.com/#profiles as at 2022-09-26).

    Please update the list all and retrieve one methods to return this scope data.

    Please also add a method to update existing profiles with values for this scope data.

    The scope attributes specifically are:
    - setting the OS type
    - setting the minimum macOS version the profile can be installed on
    - setting the maximum macOS version the profile can be installed…

  18. Allow Log Filter to Include API

    Currently when filtering the Logs, you can filter by the user making the change, but you cannot filter by API key. I would like the ability to quickly see the recent logs that the API has made.
    This may be classified as a bug, but was asked to submit here anyway.

  19. Add column sorting to all columns across SimpleMDM

    For example, under Devices > Enrollments > [MDM Server] > DEP Info, none of the columns (S/N, Model, Color, Last DEP Check-In, Linked Device, Status) can be sorted.

    Another example is Config > Profiles. Only the "Type" column can be sorted, but none of the other columns.

    I realize we can search and filter on these same pages, but it would be helpful to have sort options as well.

  20. Include copy button for admin password.

    With the escrowed admin password feature, it would be helpful to include a small copy button (similar to those seen on code training/doc sites) to easily copy the password.

    As it is now, if you reveal the password, then triple click to select, you end up grabbing a carriage return (and text styling) that will make the password invalid when pasted.
