  1. Make logging more detailed for MDM commands

    While I appreciate how detailed SimpleMDM logs can be, especially with raw responses from MDM, sometimes they need to provide more detail. For example, when sending an OS update command the log only contains...

    "Log Details
    Full ID E7B0DBE9-A7C1-4EC8-8CB8-BFA4AB990C59
    Created At 2023-08-17 3:34 PM
    Namespace device
    Type os.update.idle
    Level info
    Device redacted
    UDID F405AA51-FF04-4B71-900F-9C09F0515398
    Serial Number redacted

    Metadata
    {
    "update_version": "13.5.1"
    }
    "

    With OS updates in particular, it's useful to know what mode was used as well. 'downloadonly', 'notifyonly', 'installasap', or 'forceupdate' are all options, but there's no associated data. For some basic commands like…

  2. Improve API docs with examples for each endpoint

    SimpleMDM's API documentation (https://api.simplemdm.com/) is inconsistent in what information is included per endpoint. For example, https://api.simplemdm.com/#custom-configuration-profiles shows the response body for a GET call, but the POST (create) section has no usage information. It's up to the user to intuit from other endpoints the format in which those arguments should be.

    https://api.simplemdm.com/#custom-attributes shows how to set a value for a device, but not create a new custom attribute globally.

    We (the customer) end up making assumptions about API formats which are usually true, but only able to confirm through guessing. It would help to ensure the official docs…

  4. Auto-admin password complexity settings

    For the auto-admin password generation done by SimpleMDM, it'd be preferable to be able to manage the level of password complexity when the password is generated. Environments can have different password policy rules that all accounts, including MDM generated, need to abide by. The Dude abides.

    Password storage apps like 1Password and Keeper offer, at minimum, password length, use of numbers, and use of special characters. See attached.

  5. Allow users to see the ipad locations on a map but nothing else

    Allow users to see the ipad locations on a map but nothing else. Just users who want to see real-time location of all the ipads. But don't let them manage the ipads, change settings, etc.

  6. Allow before/after (un)installation script overrides for shared apps

    This would enable one to benefit from shared auto-updating apps while applying useful improvements such as /Applications/Docker.app/Contents/MacOS/Docker --unattended --install-privileged-components.

  8. add the ability to deploy individual files/folders to macOS

    I would like the ability to deploy individual files or folders to our Mac devices.

    Sometimes an app has an additional config file that needs deployed to make it work. We also use PDQ Connect in our environment, and that allows for us to can create packages that contain .msi, .exe, or PowerShell or CMD scripts, then also have the option to attach additional files to use in the package (see screenshot).

    Also, there are times where we may just need to send a file/folder to all devices. Something else besides an app, profile, or script. A simple option to…

  10. Make the `app_usage_data` portion of Munki optional

    Having just confirmed with Eric and others in the Slack channel that SimpleMDM's Munki instance doesn't make use of the app_usage_data feature in Munki - would it be possible to create a toggle to turn it off?

    Additionally there are some global regions where tracking this kind of stuff falls foul of local privacy laws...

    ...and it's upset my privacy focused end users.

    Thanks in advance

  12. 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…

  14. Implement "force password change when the user authenticates"

    As per https://support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/deployment/dep4d6a472a/web, Apple has an API for forcing a user password change. This is useful when updating password policy - passwords that met the old policy but no longer meet the new policy are not evaluated and forced to change. This setting, however, would make it so.

  15. Allow devices to be marked as unmanaged

    Another idea to borrow from Jamf Pro. Please consider allowing SimpleMDM customers to mark devices as unmanaged in order to keep them for historical or data purposes without them actively being under management and NOT taking up a license. An unmanaged device would keep the same config, but not have the ability to interact with MDM moving forward. No profile installs, polling for device info, etc. It is a record stuck in time. Devices should be able to move freely between managed/unmanaged through the GUI and API.

    As it today, every device which exists in a SimpleMDM tenant takes up…

  16. Add Support for Munki Conditionals to SimpleMDM's Munki Implementation

    Munki includes the ability to set "conditionals" for items in specific manifests to provide granular controls over the installation or appearance of items.

    For example, if I have a multi-site organization, I can set a conditional on a NOPKG item that installs a printer so that the printer install NOPKG only shows up if the device user is connecting to Munki from a specific subnet. This allows me to refine the view of available self-service printers so that, for example, the printers available at Site A only show up if the user's local IP address matches the subnet at Site…

  17. Include a 'Devices' (or 'Assigned Devices') tab on a device group page

    When inspecting a device group, it would be very helpful and handy to have a tab to inspect/manage the devices associated with that group.
    Currently you have to go back to the Groups page, find the desired group, and then click on the number in the Assigned Devices column to look at the devices in that group and perform any management activities on them.

  19. Update/upgrade WhatsApp in Shared Apps for macOS

    The current version has now "WhatsApp (old)" as name and the logo is grey now instead of green. It also suggests downloading the new app. But I prefer to install it from the self-service app (Munki). So can you add/update it?

  20. iOS Remote View/Control

    I used an MDM program (Mosyle MDM) in the past that allowed the agent to remote into iPhones and iPads to help the user with their issues. It makes things much easier, instead of using Facetime and asking the user to share their screen because they don't know how most of the time. Please add Remote View and maybe the ability to control and click. Thank you!
