  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. Include DEP status in CSV Export

    A column indicating whether the device is enrolled via DEP would be a helpful addition to the CSV export.

  10. 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>

  12. extend OS auto update policy to include macOS

    Would LOVE to be able to manage OS update policy for macOS devices directly from SimpleMDM rather than needing a custom profile.

    The macOS update policy can be controlled with the Restriction profile within SimpleMDM. The setting is called “Delay OS update availability” and is available at the bottom of the “Apps & OS” section.

  13. Enrollement links - Security Issue

    Current enrollment links are not secure, links are permanent and for unlimited use. If some will steel or simply he will trying random number from 000000000 to 999999999, he will sooner or later find link with valid invite.

    This have multiple issues:
    1) License price, if i will enroll 1000 devices to someones mdm he will pay 3000$ in best case scenario or also 30000$, of course SimpleMDM will refund this but it is lost on both sides and lost of trust

    2) if the person will enroll to group with some login/security details (wifi, vpn, mail, network shares etc)…

  15. Event to Webhook for Group membership set/changed

    If a device is add to a group receiving a webhook on such event would be great.
    The group assignment is already available via API - receiving event details + device details would help along automated workflows, audit trails etc.

  16. User Enrollment

    Please consider adding User Enrollment support, as recently demonstrated at the Apple WWDC, into the basic framework. It would make our lives infinitely easier to be able to have users logon with their AD/OKTA/PingOne/Whatever account instead of having to manage multiple accounts. Thanks.

  18. Use a different font to display firmware / recovery key

    When attempting to view the recovery key or firmware key using the font on the simplemdm website on Google Chrome / Safari on macOS capital I and lower case l are impossible to tell apart. I have to copy the key into an application with a different font to see the true key.

  19. Low licence warning

    We're using pre-paid licences (rather than pay as you go with a credit card) and have hit the hard limit of seats a couple of times. Which breaks new enrolments in unpleasant ways.

    Could some kind of mechanism to auto-alert admins (or a web hook? Or and API we can call?) be added when the free seats drop below a user defined threshold so we can start the process of ordering more licences?

    The billing page now includes an option to be notified when available licenses is low. This option is available for accounts that have purchased licenses via manual invoicing.

  20. Update the SimpleMDM Name via the API

    As per your document https://docs.simplemdm.com/article/60-device-name-vs-simplemdm-name-whats-the-difference, there are two names within the console for a macOS device.

    Our DEP workflow will soon be able to update the 'Device Name' using the API (https://simplemdm.com/docs/api/#update43) but it isn't currently possible to update the 'SimpleMDM Name' in the same way.

    Could the API be updated to either a)allow changing of the 'SimpleMDM Name' explicitly using its own call and/or b) allow the 'Device Name' call to also update the 'SimpleMDM Name' using a boolean flag to do so.
