  1. Increase munkiimport maximum package size from 5GB to 20GB

    We attempted to upload a .dmg for Xcode 12.5.1 (approx 14GB) and hit an error:

    <Error><Code>EntityTooLarge</Code>
    <ProposedSize>13988766834</ProposedSize>.
    <MaxSizeAllowed>5368709120</MaxSizeAllowed>
    </Error>

    The .xip file was downloaded from the Developer portal and unpacked in terminal using xip --expand.

    Could the upload size be increased to 20GB to allow larger .dmgs to be delivered by SimpleMDM using Munki ?

    Performance delivering Xcode from Apps & Books is patchy, and does not allow the running of a post install script to accept the licence and install the embedded packages.

    This could be for a test instance initially to check performance.

    Non-integrated munki and local mirrors…

  3. Please support Munki `requires` and `update_for` values

    Please support the configuration of the requires and update_for values in the package interface. It would be lovely to be able to configure these in either the catalog or assignments section. Thank you!

  5. Add an "Assigned Via" column to the "Installs" tab for apps

    Add an "Assigned Via" column to the "Installs" tab for apps, preferably a sortable one, that shows either "Device" or the name of the Device Group which the device belongs to that is assigned an app. The column would be similar to the "Assigned Via" column on the profiles tab of a device. This would make it so that if you need to uninstall an app from a specific Device Group of devices, but not all of your devices, you can quickly see which devices are assigned an app because of a specific Device Group membership and you could select…

  7. Customized Managed Software Centre

    It would be great to have a way to customize the Munki Managed Software Centre now that Munki integration is part of the beta. If there was a way to apply something like Munki Theme Creator files (https://grovetech.co/blog/munki-theme-creator-for-munki/) This would be amazing.

  10. Ability to Apply a Single Profile to Multiple Groups

    It would be nice to be able to Apply a Single Profile to a Large Number of groups all at once since currently it can only be done on a one-by-one basis.

  11. Add Dock Customization Profiles

    The Apple MDM Spec includes huge amounts of dock configuration options for MacOS, but I can only use those with custom configuration profiles at the moment. I would love to be able to choose what items are in the docks for specific profiles, maybe even a UI that would allow us to add Shared and VPP apps to the dock.

  12. Install macOS VPP apps using this MDM channel for user AND device

    I deploy User Enrolment and Automated Enrolment devices using the VPP apps function.

    Currently I need the "Install macOS VPP apps using this MDM channel" to be device level install for Automated Enrolment devices.

    However this breaks the User Enrolment devices to deploy VPP apps.

    Can you add an option to allow VPP app deployment by deployment type (i.e. User for User Enrolment, Device for Automated Enrolment)?

    Thanks, James

  13. Integrate Munkireport or Sal

    Please integrate Munkireport, Sal, or some type of reporting and smart group criteria functionality. It would be lovely to have hosted reporting built into SimpleMDM. Munkireport is the most obvious choice due to the sheer amount of great modules available. Thank you!

  18. Dedicated place to request additions to Shared Apps

    It would be helpful to have a dedicated place to submit requests for new apps to be added the Shared Apps (for Munki). We can do it here of course, but seems like maybe it needs it's own section?

  19. Rotate Firmware Password option

    We would like to use unique firmware password with the option to rotate the password, in case we have to share the password with the user at some point. Currently that would only possible with moving the device to a group without a firmware password, clear the firmware password and assign the device back to the original group.

    Maybe there is a possibility like building a mechanism that sends out multiple commands (one to clear the password and one to set it again), which would effectively "rotate" the firmware password.

  20. API to retrieve custom attribute values for all devices

    I have to periodically examine and update (where needed) a custom attribute for all the devices in our fleet. This currently requires one API request (with paging) to retrieve the list of devices, and then one request for each and every device to retrieve the custom attribute value. With 2500 devices this is already prohibitively slow.

    An API call that returns the custom attribute values for all devices would solve this neatly and speed up the code thousandfold.
