  • Viewing the encrypted Apple profiles in Workspace ONE UEM console
    by apcsb on May 18, 2021 at 7:30 am

    Apple has an option to encrypt the MDM profile payloads (both iOS and macOS). But then when you try to view the profile XML in the console (ex. migrating payloads between UAT and Production environments, working with custom profiles) – they are encrypted! Turns out, there is a way to view the XML w/o having... Continue Reading →

  • Integrating Workspace ONE reporting with PowerBI
    by apcsb on April 12, 2021 at 7:30 am

    Last week one of my customers asked if Workspace ONE data could be used in PowerBI. Since Workspace ONE Intelligence Reports are included in every WS1 edition and are accessible via API – this is the easiest way to expose data to external systems. But how exactly? Even though I’ve never used PowerBI before, after... Continue Reading →

  • Enroll a Fully Managed non-GMS Android device using ADB

    When dealing with non-GMS Android devices (specialized rugged devices, devices in China) one big challenge is actually enrolling them, since the code that enrolls a Fully Managed device is not part of AOSP.

    by Jason Bayton on December 26, 2020 at 6:21 pm

    As 2020 comes to a long-overdue close and we head into what anyone can hope will be a slightly less chaotic new year, it also edges closer to what will soon be two years leading product with Social Mobile. With the results of all the hard work now materialising, I think it’s interesting to reflect on the last >18 months, what it’s lead to, and what’s next.

  • Google announce big changes to zero-touch
    by Jason Bayton on November 10, 2020 at 3:09 pm

    Google today dropped the most significant update to zero-touch since its introduction with the Google Pixel back in 2016! Rolling out over the next several months, all GMS certified Android devices – new and existing – running 9.0 or above will support zero-touch by default, with no additional OEM effort required. Why does this matter? Zero-touch, Google’s equivalent of Apple’s Device Enrolment, Samsung’s Knox Mobile Enrolment, and Microsoft’s Autopilot, allows for the assignment of a device to a customer-defined EMM platform before it’s even taken out of the box. It means I as a customer can purchase devices from a ... read more.

  • VMware announces end of support for Device Admin
    by Jason Bayton on October 1, 2020 at 3:23 pm

    This week, VMware announced their intention to end support for Device Admin based Android management. A topic I’ve covered in depth since Google’s announcement way back at the end of 2017, this has been a long time coming (so long), and trends with the wider ecosystem adoption of Android Enterprise over the last few years as Device Admin functionality has slowly but surely eroded away with each major Android release. 3 years on from that announcement it’s clear however DA isn’t going away as rapidly as some would hope; whether that’s due to slow device refresh cycles (some industries take ... read more.

Driven primarily by community experts (Google Product Experts), the Help Community offers the wider ecosystem of partners and customers a place to discuss all things Android Enterprise, whether EMM issues, device questions, zero-touch queries, deployment or in-life support concerns, best practices, tips or really anything else. As long as it’s AE, it’s fair game. The community has been up and running for a little bit, and a few customers have stumbled upon it no doubt while perusing the ... read more.

    So it's a bit troublesome issue, we have recently added around 200 or more devices in our environment on a server which was supposed to push profiles to these devices and everything worked fine but it seems they are registering with BYOD profiles instead of CORP (which was setup for the corporate devices) now we have to create another profile to push corp configuration and until the network team adds these devices in ISE it pushes BYOD instead of CORP configuration. Can anyone explain why do they get BYOD and why do we need Network team add MAC addresses in ISE to correct these? submitted by /u/Meet974 [link] [comments]

  • Alternative way to deploy app catalog to Win10 devices
    by /u/0xf3e on September 14, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    Hello, we are managing domain-joined Windows PCs with WS1. Now that we have deployed a unified start menu via GPO (which is redirect to a network share), the web clips for the app catalog on these Windows PCs vanished. We use the app catalog to roll out updates and let users install additional software. Is there an alternative way of deploying the web clip/app catalog or somehow get the URL https://{Environment}/Catalog/ViewCatalog/{SecureDeviceUdid}/{DevicePlatform} for each device so it would be possible for me to create a desktop shortcut for each user? submitted by /u/0xf3e [link] [comments]

  • Auto enable permissions for Location and Bluetooth
    by /u/Easy-Ad3137 on September 10, 2021 at 9:04 am

    ​ Is there a method to deploy an app with permissions without user interaction? It's for an iOS device, duress app that currently successfully deploys to devices, users have to request bluetooth or location services prior to being able to set the options, and then the user has to set location services to Always allow. Is there a way for it to be configured to allow bluetooth and set location services to always on? I couldn't see anything in; https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Workspace-ONE-UEM/services/Application\_Management.pdf Is there a method to deploy configuration so that users don't have to complete that step? submitted by /u/Easy-Ad3137 [link] [comments]

  • Apps not downloading to Windows from Intelligent Hub
    by /u/timthomp89 on September 7, 2021 at 2:34 am

    I’m very new to Workspace One and running into a very basic issue. I setup a couple of apps from the Enterprise App Repository and also a native app configured with MSI, assigned them to a group, and pushed them out to my Windows machines. The apps all appear in the Hub catalog but when I try to install, the gear just spins until it eventually times out. In the c:/ProgramData/AirWatchMDM folder I don’t find any evidence that the installer has downloaded. Any idea what I’m missing here? submitted by /u/timthomp89 [link] [comments]

  • Anyone having issues with Airwatchservice pegging CPU?
    by /u/adrabo_CLE on September 2, 2021 at 5:18 pm

    Starting this morning, many of my end users started complaining about their laptops being nearly useless. On investigation, it’s the Airwatchservice running under Taskscheduler.exe, with near 100% CPU usage. I have a Severity 2 ticket in, but no reply in 3 hours. Trying the Chat feature, and even that has been impossible to get a response. I figured I’d ping this group to see if this is a widespread issue. submitted by /u/adrabo_CLE [link] [comments]

  • Disable 'Shared Experiences'
    by /u/Skyboard13 on September 1, 2021 at 2:57 pm

    Hi Folks, We need to completely disable the 'shared experiences' options in Windows 10 for our users (as part of some new security mandates). Specifically we need to make it so that users cannot share anything using 'Nearby Share' or 'Share across devices'. Does Workspace One have anything in their restrictions profiles that can do this? I've already tried turning off 'Allow Network Share' and that didn't do it. I've also dug into the documentation but coming up with nothing. And Workspace One support has no idea what I'm talking about. 🙁 submitted by /u/Skyboard13 [link] [comments]

  • Silent Enrollment and Staging with SAML Integration
    by /u/Morse_Pacific on August 25, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    We have our environment configured to use Okta as the identity provider to Workspace One Access, which in turn provisions users into Workspace One UEM. We're trying to come up with a mechanism to: a. Enroll our existing Windows 10 machines out in the field into Workspace One. b. Enroll our 'new in box' machines that we have on the shelf into Workspace One. We will be configuring the Factory Provisioning stuff as well which we'll use for all new Dell systems that come from the factory eventually. Everything I've found so far points me to using a Staging User and a PowerShell script to deploy the Airwatch.msi installer and silently install using the Staging User credentials. This would work great, except ... it doesn't. I believe this is because of our Okta integration. When manually running the Airwatch.msi and entering the same server and Organization Group IDs as I have in my script, the app automatically redirects to an Okta login. So far I've tried creating a staging user inside Okta, pushing it into Workspace One and assigning it the correct Staging settings, as well as a 'Basic' user, but when running the install with the silent script, it just doesn't want to work. Even though my authentication settings are set to allow both Basic and Directory authentication, I think the issue is the automatic redirection to Okta before the username is even entered. Has anyone got a similar configuration and found a way around this? Our implementation services guy from VMware is off trying things in his lab to work out a way forward but I wanted to have a try at tackling it in parallel. He's suggested creating a second Organization Group that has Directory (i.e. Okta) authentication disabled entirely and having the machines use a staging account from that, enrolling all the machines, and then manually moving them back up into the original group but that relies on manual intervention for each enrolled machine, which I'd like to avoid (automation is better!) submitted by /u/Morse_Pacific [link] [comments]
