Have a great idea that you’d like to see added to our service? Perhaps there’s an existing feature that you’d like to have extended or modified? Share it here!

  1. Integrate with AutoPkg

    Please provide a consumable url for packages distributed via the Munki method for use with AutoPkg as a MUNKI_REPO e.g. defaults write com.github.autopkg MUNKI_REPO /path/to/munki_repo. Most Munki admins leverage AutoPkg for programmatic package management. Lovely work, thanks!

  2. Bugfix... SimpleMDM cannot "see" multiple macOS apps with the same identifier

    We're using SimpleMDM to help with software compliance. We've discovered that if two apps share the same app identifier (so org.mozilla.firefox for example) - SimpleMDM's software view will only list the first one discovered.

    This is particularly painful for apps like Pycharm - where "Pycharm" and "Pycharm Community Edition" share the same app identifier - so it's impossible to tell which version someone is using... or perhaps they have both versions installed.

    Can you add the ability to capture duplicate installs (which their own app identifier) please?

    This issue is making our software compliance team very sad indeed.

    Help!

  3. 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…

  4. increase app upload size

    Currently unable to upload software installers over 2000MB. With the addition of Munki and further MacOS integration, it would be helpful to increase upload size. This is especially true on packages like Adobe CC. I am sure there are other examples out there.

    Upload size limit has been increased to 4 GB. If additional capacity is needed, please open a new feature request with information on the particular package you are wishing to upload, including its size.

  6. API add ability to push updated app to all installs

    The API currently allows for updating an existing binary: https://simplemdm.com/docs/api/#update-2 But this does NOT push out the update to all installs like it gives you the option of doing on the Web UI.

    Please add a boolean flag (maybe "push"?) or something similar to the the app update endpoint so that I can update the app binary and push it out all in one command.

    We are currently working to automate our app deployment process with a CI solution and not being able to push the app forces us to open SimpleMDM on the web and push out the update…

  7. 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”.

  8. 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 and put use of the saml login name
    from:
    https://developer.apple.com/documentation/devicemanagement/accountconfigurationcommand/command

    and if possible collect the users full name from the saml login.

    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”.

  11. 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.

  12. 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:

  13. Lost Mode GPS Coordinates

  14. Add notification payload support for macOS

  16. 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.

  17. IKEv2 VPN support

    It doesn't look like IKEv2 connection type is supported in the UI. This would be useful with attribute support so that we can add accounts per device and have the username and password assigned in the profile.

  19. 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.

  20. 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?
