  1. Profile PayloadIdentifier discoverable

    This request is to make discovering the SimpleMDM Profile PayloadIdentifier discoverable via API, web UI, or ideally, both.

    With Big Sur requiring silent Profile installs to come from MDM, I, and many others, will need to look at getting local profiles installed Profiles installed via MDM instead. Seeing as the Profiles installed may have critical settings or payloads, there will need to be care taken to identify which manual installed Profile coincides with an MDM installed Profile. One way to do that is to make note of what the PayloadIdentifier is for the MDM delivered Profile and act accordingly on…

  3. The ability to set "Auto Lock to Never"

    We really need to set Auto Lock to Never as part of the "Restrictions" profile, is this possible?

    The MDM feature you are referring to is already available under the “Passcode Policy” payload. The key, specifically, is “Maximum auto-lock time” and the value you’re interested in is “Infinite”.

    Worth noting is that Apple MDM does not actually let you specify the auto-lock time on a device. Rather, it lets you specify a maximum value only, then permitting the user to specify their own value that meets your requirements. If Apple expands these capabilities in the future, we will be happy to implement them.

    Finally, there is one way to disable auto lock and that is in conjunction with single app lock. If you are planning on restricting the user to just one app, you can use a “Single App Lock” profile, select the app, and check the box next to “Disable auto lock”.

  4. Make Automated Enrollment information available via the SimpleMDM API

    Ideally we could access the following via the API...

    Interactive:


    • Trigger a Sync with DEP

    Basic Info:


    • Server Name

    • Organization Name

    • Token Expiry

    • Last Sync

    DEP Device Info
    - Serial Number
    - Model
    - Last DEP Check-In
    - Linked Device

    LockPrimaryAccountInfo is now available as of macOS 10.15.4. Earlier versions of macOS have a bug that prevents this feature from functioning reliably.

    SAML attributes can be saved to a device’s custom attributes. Under the “Authentication” tab in Enrollment details, SAML authentication types include an option to “Allow provider to set custom attributes”.

  7. Pull (available) MAC Addresses from supervised devices to improve device onboarding

    Currently, SimpleMDM by default pulls the WiFi MAC address for all supervised devices, but does not pull ethernet MAC address.

    During our device onboarding process, some of our Apple devices do not configure themselves over Wifi, and hence it is more valuable for us to pull the eth card MAC address instead (which now has to be manually copied by hand/scanned from device packaging/pulled from Network settings in MacOS).

    We would like the option for SimpleMDM to retrieve both the WiFi and ethernet MAC Address (if available) for all supervised devices.

  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:

    When Lost Mode is activated, it would be helpful to get the precise coordinates without needing to go through the API.

  10. Add notification payload support for macOS

    10.15 Beta 6 adds ability to parse notification payload (from iOS) on macOS. This is useful for whitelisting management apps that we always want to be able to show notifications to users.

  12. 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.

  14. Store the remote lock/wipe PIN in the SimpleMDM webUI somewhere

    At the moment, when you send a remote lock/wipe command - you're required to set a PIN. But that PIN isn't retained by SimpleMDM... which means you're trusting ME to do it... ;)

    But more seriously - it would great for that PIN to be viewable in SimpleMDM. My use case? Service desk admin sends a remote lock for a stolen device, finishes their shift, goes home.

    Laptop is found, someone else on helpdesk can pick up the ticket, retrieve the PIN, and send it on to the end user.

  15. Add suppression of ScreenTime popup on login

    ScreenTime pops up when logging into a Catalina machine.
    Can the key for that be available in the DEP and profile settings to suppress?

    The home screen layout has been expanded to support up to 30 icons, as became available in iPadOS 13.

    Apple does not currently support configuration of the Today View via MDM.

  18. Clarify interactions between "Delay OS update availability" and "OS Auto Update Policy"

    We had iOS devices updated unexpectedly to iOS 13, even though we had "Delay OS update availability" to 90 days.

    Thanks to a deep investigation by Eric, we realized that the "Delay OS update availability" option applies only to the user updates. And that setting gets ignored when an "OS Auto Update Policy" is set.

    To prevent others from making the same mistake we made, I suggest you change the label description of "Delay OS update availability" on the device restriction profile, to make it explicit that this will only apply to user updates. How about something like "Delay OS…

  20. API add device attribute 'ethernet_mac'

    As of 20190912 one is able to pull the ethernet mac address from a device via the web interface (/admin/device/<id>) assuming the device has an ethernet port.

    I would like an attribute 'ethernet_mac' to be added to devices that have ethernet ports.

    curl --user ${API_KEY}: https://a.simplemdm.com/api/v1/devices/<id>
