  1. 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…

  3. WWDC21 - Add support for real-time ASM/ABM assignment notifications

    From What's new in WWDC 2021:

    MDM vendors can subscribe to real-time notifications for state changes to assignments, assets, and registered users, so they don’t need to continually request the latest state. The notifications are opt-in, and vendors will receive notifications for just the types they subscribe to in client configuration. Features include:
    • Assignment notifications: Notify in real-time exactly what assignments have successfully been performed and to which devices.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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!

  8. 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?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  14. Extend profiles API to include listing/managing all profiles

    Currently the only profiles that can be managed via the API are custom configuration profiles.

    Please extend management of the profiles to include all the profiles that can be created within the SimpleMDM web console so that these profiles can also be managed with the API.

    Given there is no ability to assign devices to multiple device groups, using the API to ensure all device groups get the profiles required is the only means of ensuring consistent application of profiles to device groups.

  18. Some form of labels or colour indicators

    For example I can select a number of machines that need the admins attention or the team and put a red colour filter on them. Also sort or filter a list via its label/Colour/Flag what ever.

    Off the back of that I can tag any of the admins on a specific device and it can notify them of that specific device.
