  1. Location for macOS

    Similar to how you push an app for iOS location, it would be nice to have a headless macOS app that did the same thing. Or perhaps a menu item of some sort.

  2. Custom Attributes - Drop-down list with options

    We are using few Custom Attributes that can have only some options (like kiosk app). Having drop-down list with options will be really nice.

    Then it will allow us to set possible Attributes and help desk will just choice from drop-down list.

    Thanks David

  4. Implement Munki managed uninstalls

    The SimpleMDM Munki implementation does not currently support managing uninstalls of software as a "pure" deployment of Munki might. Please implement uninstall management.

  5. Support network users

    MDM protocol has an extension called "Network User Authentication" allowing MDM to manage network users in corporate or educational environment.

    This is linked to what is sometime called shared devices or lab devices.

    Main idea is to be able to target settings to users and not devices directly.

    This mean users are provided by a central directory service (at this time it's LDAP like AD, OD or even custom LDAP, but don't forget that macOS might support something else too).

    So MDM need to be able to sync with any kind of directory services and receive "UserAuthenticate" messages from managed…

  6. search devices by custom attributes or notes field information

    I would like to look up who is using the iPad. We have generally put the name in the notes field and are looking into doing a custom attribute. Neither are searchable in the current device algorithm. Can we please get something for that added?

  7. Enforce matching name and device_name fields

    Note: Due to formatting, not including the _ underscore in device name. Everything was italics.

    SimpleMDM has two name values for each device - "name" and "device name". "name" is the value used in the device list (https://a.simplemdm.com/admin/devices) and the header of a device record. "device name" is the actual hostname set locally. If the hostname changes on device, it will change in SimpleMDM on next inventory refresh. Similarly, "device name" can be edited manually in SimpleMDM and a MDM command will be issued to update it on device.

    What if "device name" changes at any point…

  8. Organize Custom Apps the same as Shared Apps

    Custom apps should behave the same way as Shared apps - allowing multiple versions to be uploaded and to have those versions displayed in a drop-down under a single app name under Assignment.

    Ideally SimpleMDM’s logic for displaying the custom app would follow what’s already in place for shared apps (which is great btw) specifically:
    • only 1 instance of the app is displayed in the Catalog by bundle ID or..?
    • the ability to select a specific version of the app in the assignment group

  9. Report on installed certificates

    I'd like to see SimpleMDM report on installed certificates for all device types. A common feature in other MDMs, CertificateListCommand (https://developer.apple.com/documentation/devicemanagement/certificatelistcommand) has been around since iOS 4 and macOS 10.7 (!).

    While we have other tools to report on certificates (like osquery), it's useful to have MDM as a data source as well since oftentimes installed certificates originate via profiles. Knowing certificate health within the same product has benefits, and could allow for more advanced certificate management directly in SimpleMDM.

    Important fields...
    - Certificate name
    - CA/issued by
    - Expiration
    - Current validity status
    - If possible, whether…

  10. 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…

  11. Allow setting device naming schemes per enrollment

    We use the device naming template under Settings -> General. This works great for our macOS and iOS devices that come in through manual enrollment and ADE as our template contains the serial number attribute, but fails when User Enrolled devices are named because that attribute isn't available. It would be useful to allow us to set a different device naming scheme per enrollment, or at least to set a backup or some sort of logic should one of the attributes be null.

  12. Extend the devices - list profiles API method to return ALL profiles that a device is assigned

    The list profiles method in the devices API endpoint only returns profiles that are directly assigned to the device; it would be very helpful to the data returned included all profiles assigned to that device, including profiles assigned through groups, etc, along with an attribute that identifies how the profile is assigned.

  13. Add directory services integration (LDAP/Active Directory)

    For enterprise, integration with directory services is essential. I need to be able to target machines and devices for actions and reporting based on an assigned active directory user and/or the user's groups.

    This should include enrollment, targeting for policies, targeting for package deployment, etc.

    I see there might be some initial work being done in the Configs -> Providers menu, but as is, it is not enough to configure LDAP.

  14. Support choosing which webhook events to subscribe to per endpoint

    https://api.simplemdm.com/#webhooks

    The current webhook events are as follows...

    device.changed_group
    device.enrolled
    device.unenrolled
    device.lock.enabled
    abm.device.added

    Whenever any of these events occurs, the webhook endpoint is pinged. However, processing these can get particularly noisy, especially in large environments and (hopefully) as SimpleMDM adds more supported events.

    I am asking to add support for selecting which events are subscribed to per webhook endpoint. This way only events needed for a particular workflow are sent and the webhook receiver requires less work to filter out unneeded data.

    The UI could look like other SimpleMDM settings with checkboxes for each event, where by default all are…

  15. Support SCIM provisioning and de-provisioning for admin accounts

    SCIM (System for Cross-domain Identity Management) is a REST/JSON protocol defined in RFC 7644 that allows identity providers to direct service providers to make account create, update, and delete actions. It is generally used to pre-provision access for new accounts and de-provision access for accounts that no longer require it.

    Please add support for SimpleMDM to work with the SCIM protocol for administrator accounts. A minimum implementation for our purposes would be to create administrator accounts using SCIM at the default permission level, and have the delete function revoke access on the given account. In a perfect world, the SCIM…

  16. Add option to flag device as stolen - alternate default group and email alerted when a specific SN enrolls

    In a scenario when a device is stolen we can flag it as stolen in the SimpleMDM interface and have email alerts be sent to the SimpleMDM Admin's when that SN registers with the service. Additionally, it would be handy to have a separate default group for devices flagged as stolen so if the OS is reinstalled and the device re-enrolls it doesn't end up in the company's default group.

  17. Store more information for deleted devices

    Deleted devices have very little paper trail to them shown in the web console. If we have the ability to store the custom attributes, notes and who deleted the device with the deleted devices, that would be a huge help in understanding why a specific machine was deleted without searching through other sources.

  20. Review your web portal to make it mobile responsive

    It would be great to make your web site responsive when it is displayed on a mobile device.

    I daily use my iPhone with Safari to remotely restart some iPads that are lock in security stands. The web admin portal is not responsive, so I have to scroll the web site to view all info and sometimes the text is overlaying.
