  1. Support choosing which webhook events to subscribe to per endpoint

    https://api.simplemdm.com/#webhooks

    The current webhook events are as follows...

    device.changed_group
    device.enrolled
    device.unenrolled
    device.lock.enabled
    abm.device.added

    Whenever any of these events occurs, the webhook endpoint is pinged. However, processing these can get particularly noisy, especially in large environments and (hopefully) as SimpleMDM adds more supported events.

    I am asking to add support for selecting which events are subscribed to per webhook endpoint. This way only events needed for a particular workflow are sent and the webhook receiver requires less work to filter out unneeded data.

    The UI could look like other SimpleMDM settings with checkboxes for each event, where by default all are…

  2. New notification options

    I'd love for a lot more notification options. Given SimpleMDM's position on the device already, it hopefully shouldn't be too heavy of a lift.

    • New User added
    • User priv changes
    • OS update skipped
    • Device visible (after being offline)

    This is off the top of my head, but I'm sure I could come up with quite a few more given some time.

  3. Include "less than macOS version" and "greater than macOS version" for profile scoping

    It would be very helpful to be able to define "less than" and "greater than" macOS version when scoping profiles. For example, I would prefer to specify "less than macOS 12" for a profile to apply to all versions of macOS 11. As it is, I have to update the maximum OS version every time a new dot release comes out.

  5. Improve Device Search with More Attributes

    Currently device search only supports device name, serial number, IMEI, MAC, and phone number.

    Scenarios where search doesn't return the results I need:
    - When I need to search by a custom attribute. For example, say I want to return all devices where the username attribute is "nathaniel.strauss". I am unable to since those attributes are not exposed in search. This is a common ask - "How many devices does x have?" The same holds true for any custom attribute set from SAML assertion - team, department, etc.
    - When the device name (SimpleMDM defined) doesn't match the Device Name…

  6. Control Webhook data

    Webhooks are very limited in what they provide without triggering another API call to pull in more information. The ability to control the payload within the webhook endpoint creation screen would be a huge help in interfacing with other programs. The ability to add static data to the payload (like we can already do to the header) or be able to add dynamic data through attribute support.

  7. Add support for additional com.apple.MCX keys in FileVault profile type

    The current FileVault profile builder in the admin GUI only has options included in com.apple.MCX.FileVault2, the escrow payload, and dontAllowFDEDisable. Please add support for dontAllowFDEEnable and DestroyFVKeyOnStandby from com.apple.MCX as well.

  9. Add a Comments Field to Login/Background Item Management Profile

    Some of the Rule Type values (Team IDs, for example) for the Login and Background Item Management are a bit abstract, and it would be useful to have a comment/description field added to allow an administrator to describe in plain language what a the Rule Type value applies to.

  10. Idempotence

    Something akin to "Smart Groups" in JamfPro. AKA a method to scope scripting/app deployments to only nodes that, by definition, need it.

    Puppet calls this Idempotency

    Ideally we'd be able to create a "Smart Group" in SimpleMDM to show us all machines running lower than a currently desired version of application X. We could then target our deployment to said group. As the deployment delivers, nodes drop dynamically out of the "Smart Group", as the deployment has satisfied the requirements we have defined.

  12. Support "Non-Removable" flag on deployed iOS Store Apps

    As noted here on the SimpleMDM blog, an option was added to iOS starting in 14.x where individual apps can be marked as "non-removable" by the administrator when being deployed.

    https://simplemdm.com/blog/mdm-ios-14-macos-11-big-sur/
    https://it-training.apple.com/tutorials/deployment/dm195

    "To prevent a user from uninstalling a managed app, mark the app as nonremovable when you assign the managed app to a user or device. Depending on your MDM solution, you might need to deselect a Removable attribute or set a nonremovable attribute. With your MDM solution, you may also be able to set this attribute on apps that are already installed on a device."

    I feel it…

  14. Nested Custom Attributes

    Description: It would be extremely useful to have the ability to nest custom attributes in SimpleMDM. This feature would allow administrators to create custom attributes that reference or depend on other custom attributes, enabling dynamic and interconnected data management.

    Use Case: For instance, suppose an organization has a custom attribute called "munkimanifestdepartement" that is a dropdown value in the DEP (Device Enrollment Program) welcome screen. The organization also wants to create another custom attribute called "munkimanifest" that includes the department value selected in "munkimanifestdepartement" along with additional static text. By nesting the custom attribute "munki

  15. Regex Rules for Custom Attribute Validation

    Description: It would be highly beneficial to have the ability to use regular expressions (regex) to validate user-defined custom attributes in SimpleMDM. This feature would allow administrators to set specific rules and patterns that user inputs must adhere to, ensuring data accuracy and consistency.

    Use Case: For example, suppose an organization has a custom attribute for employee IDs. By implementing regex rules, the administrator can define that the employee ID must follow a specific format, such as a combination of letters and numbers. Any user input that does not match the defined regex pattern would be flagged as invalid, preventing…

  17. Show all apps on all devices, enriched with metadata & approval-management

    Currently I can see a list of all installed apps for one device at a time. I would love to have an overview of ALL the apps across ALL managed devices.
    My use case: We allow users to install apps themselves, but they need to be approved. I would like to see all apps, filter out the system apps (like "AirDrop"), and then see which apps are only on a single/a few devices.

    Additionally:
    * I want to see if an app is notarized/from the App Store, since any malware app can just call itself "Calendar.app".
    * I want…

  18. More granularity on the SimpleMDM menu bar icon...

    So, we've just rolled out Nudge and have used the SimpleMDM agent to do so. And now I'm being grumbled at about the Managed Software Centre Icon taking up valuable menu bar space...

    I appreciate I can kill it via the UI - but it's a bit all or nothing, and when we start adding apps to self-service, the menu bar app seems as good a place as any to direct our end users.

    So - can we set icon visibility per assignment group?

    I think what I'm basically saying is if all apps are managed, and there's no self-service…

  19. API device profile install status

    In webUI you can see the profile install status, but in API you can only see "assigned" and no visibility of whether it installed or not. This is useful information, particularly in my case when assigning a SCEP profile where the CA is in corporate network. The profile install frequently fails due to devices being off LAN.
    This could be an install status when querying device/profiles or an installed profile list when querying devices, which we'd compare to assigned profiles.

  20. Expand Webhook triggers

    If we had the ability to choose which webhook events to subscribe per endpoint (https://suggestions.simplemdm.com/forums/204404-suggestions/suggestions/46289557-support-choosing-which-webhook-events-to-subscribe), the addition of more triggers would be valuable in automating and validating workflows.
    Here are some of the possible triggers:
    abm.device.removed
    profile.added
    profile.updated
    profile.removed
    application.added
    application.updated
    application.removed
    script.added
    script.updated
    script.removed
    script.job.run
