    Had a demo of Workspace ONE this week, and am curious if anyone here migrated from SCCM. One of the biggest questions our shop has is how you're handling updates?

  • Intelligent Hub: MDM Channel Security
    by /u/GeekgirlOtt on September 9, 2020 at 5:06 pm

    re: Windows Desktop:: Intelligent Hub Settings:: MDM Channel Security What are the consequences of setting this from None to "signed & encrypted". Will anything break, are there pre-requisites one should verify first ? This is the MS setting it corresponds to: Provider/ProviderID/EnhancedAppLayerSecurity/SecurityMode Required. Added in Windows 10, version 1709. This node specifies how the client will perform the app layer signing and encryption. 0: no op; 1: sign only; 2: encrypt only; 3: sign and encrypt. The default value is 0. update: I turned on "3 - sign&encrypt" in a new child organization group and place newly enrolled PC in that org. group and the installed hub and programs seem to work fine, bitlocker fine, windows appears okay so far... still wondering: what I really need to know is if there will be any disruption to existing enrolled PCs submitted by /u/GeekgirlOtt [link] [comments]

  • Deploying Cisco Umbrella to MacOS via Workspace One
    by /u/nitvit610 on September 7, 2020 at 2:05 pm

    Hi all, I am trying to deploy Cisco Umbrella to some MacOS machines using Workspace One. I have used the Admin Assistant tool to generate the metadata .plist file, which I can upload when creating a new application in the portal. Unfortunately, Cisco Umbrella comes with it's own .plist file which assigns it to that particular organisation. I've been trawling through documentation but can't figure out how to fit it all together. I have found this documentation which looks hopeful but not sure how I can package it with the metadata package. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. submitted by /u/nitvit610 [link] [comments]

  • WS1 Not Starting Up
    by /u/mahleek20 on August 19, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    So let me start out with a little bit of a background. Our company recently introduced and rolled out WS1 to all of our users and required them to install it on their computers (we have a BYOD policy). A majority of users have had success getting it installed and getting their devices enrolled. However, there have been several devices that after the install has completed and WS1 opens up so the user can enroll either one of two things happen. 1. Window (blank) for WS1 opens up and then closes or 2. Nothing happens but WS1 is visible in the hidden icons section (WS1 in hidden icons occurs in both situations). This has only been with Windows 10 devices and the solution from my company is to reimage the affected devices. I personally refuse to believe that is the only solution, which brings me here to reddit. Please any help would be appreciated!!! submitted by /u/mahleek20 [link] [comments]

  • WSOne Intelligence Automation Data Collection?
    by /u/StrawHatZero on August 17, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    I am a bit confused about how often the automations within Workspace ONE intelligence collect data from devices or run. Does this happen every 24 hrs? I have some automations which specify the "Last Run" from more than two days ago. I know they should be triggered by the automation, but all it needs is the device to meet the version requirements as a parameter and it is unclear how often it checks for such devices. Does anyone have any insight on this? Thank you in advance! submitted by /u/StrawHatZero [link] [comments]

  • Gsuite syncing issues when enrolling devices with EMM
    by /u/sondeche on July 16, 2020 at 2:01 pm

    Hi All, I have a WorkspaceOne setup that uses Google EMM Integration. I have a peculiar issue where when i setup a new android phone without the WorkspaceOne registration (just like i would a personal device), google syncs okay. When i enrol using the WorkspaceOne registration method (using afw#hub when prompted for the email address and downloading intelligent hub before google login), the corporate google account is unable to sync but any other account syncs just fine. Now I realise this either a WorkspaceOne issue or a Gsuite Issue and I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction because i cant enrol devices that won't even sync corporate email submitted by /u/sondeche [link] [comments]

I previously assumed it was just a tool to run reports on the different data collected in WS1 UEM.
