  • Introducing MANAGED SETTINGS
    by Jason Bayton on July 4, 2024 at 12:00 am

    I've been supporting customers on their modern Android management journeys for several years now, and as you can imagine, the more customers you engage with, the more you notice patterns and friction points that resurface time and time again. For me, having access to system settings from within kiosk environments is one such example of those friction points, and one of the first projects for 2024 I opted to undertake after launching my QR code generator last year. Don't get me wrong, plenty of vendors in the ecosystem have Kiosk/launcher applications that will offer a solution from within their own applications, AirWatch/WS1 UEM's launcher & Knox Manage kiosk are some of the several examples of these. Recently though, and particularly with the surge of AMAPI based EMM platforms, it's become increasingly clear many do not. So, I went about designing a relatively straightforward answer - MANAGED SETTINGS. What is it? # MANAGED SETTINGS is a simple app that provides end users the ability to launch settings intents. This isn't a new concept; searching Google Play brings up many such apps. The key differentiator with MANAGED SETTINGS is the ability to toggle these various intents on and off based on the specific requirements of an organisation through managed config (and thus, the name was born). Out of the box I've aimed to support as many intents as is reasonable, omitting only those which are troublesome to support (i.e those commonly adjusted from the behaviour of AOSP across OEMs) or likely not to see any use, but over time more will be added, so too will custom intent support, allowing organisations to leverage OEM-specific intents with their managed estate without relying on me to implement and support them. As an added bonus, organisations that struggle to document and/or support the unique and sometimes confusing layouts of OEM-customised settings applications across both their company owned and personally owned estates, are able now to deploy one consistent settings app to everything. Building your documentation around an agnostic, standardised application makes the whole process quicker and more straightforward for all involved. MANAGED SETTINGS works across fully managed, dedicated, and work profile devices. When can I get it? # I'm releasing MANAGED SETTINGS as a free application on Google Play, available today. In spite of its simplicity, a lot of time and effort has been put into this, so if you'd like to support the continued development of projects like this for the betterment of the Android Ecosystem, I'm offering a licensed upgrade for MANAGED SETTINGS which offers (currently) basic customisation of the in-app experience. In an upcoming release this will extend to theming to allow organisations the option of setting a colour scheme for the MANAGED SETTINGS app that'll enable closer alignment to the organisation's brand - but I want to ensure there's demand for that before I commit to it 🙂 Get it here: If you're interested in learning more, visit the project page for an in-depth overview, support docs, and other resources. Setting expectations for support # Though I've done my best to support the breadth of Settings intents across most major Android OEMs and recent Android versions, it's well known that sometimes intents just don't work, or the OEM Settings application in general causes issues. APN is a good example of an intent that'll work on some devices, but inexplicably fails (or gives permission issues) due to the way OEMs have implemented their telephony stack. I have multiple fallbacks implemented where possible to overcome some instances where an adjusted call is required, but I don't have the resources to test every device on the market. Interestingly, tablet devices with split-screen Settings app implementations are also far more likely to inadvertently expose additional device settings due to how they're designed, and unfortunately I can't do anything to combat that. I'm more than happy to work with organisations finding issues with certain intents, and if I can resolve them I absolutely will. To touch on EMM support as well, the managed config implementation is quite basic and should be supported by all major vendors without issue, certainly confirmed so far through my testing. That said, if your vendor isn't working correctly, I'm happy to get to the bottom of it. Feel free to reach out to debug, and I hope you find MANAGED SETTINGS useful for your managed Android estate!

  • I'm joining NinjaOne
    by Jason Bayton on June 18, 2024 at 12:00 am

    It’s been a while since my last career update, and as interesting and diverse as the ecosystem is in opportunities to get involved with various projects*, I’m happy to be going back to FTE 😁. Over the last several months I’ve been doing a lot more with AMAPI - as you’ll no doubt see if my posting history is anything to go by - and an opportunity presented itself to join NinjaOne to help build out and expand their endpoint management solution to mobile. Having interacted in the past (👋 Leo!) with NinjaOne, I know they’re a decent bunch, so I took the offer to go full time leading the Google stack in the just-launched NinjaOne MDM. I’m incredibly excited to join at a time when mobile is a big focus for the organisation, and offers profound opportunities to take an already-successful endpoint management platform to the next level in the mobile ecosystem; as it stands today, 84 percent of companies allow or require employees to use their personal cell phones for work tasks, 19% of global Android shipments (according to the Android Enterprise Global Partner Summit) are strictly for enterprise, and the dedicated (AE) ecosystem is beginning to come together, particularly with Google’s changes in Android 15. Having been a long-time advocate of enterprise mobility and endpoint management (see this article as one of the first handful of thought-pieces from nearly 10 years ago (🥲) which still holds some relevance), it's evident that the work-from-anything/anywhere productivity mobile devices have enabled is unrivalled in today's corporate environments - but it’s certainly not without its challenges. The biggest problem I still see today in the ecosystem is the lack of awareness and education, with only 35-40 percent of organisations (I still believe that’s roughly where we are, though figures are from ~2020, and it sounds like enterprise shipments for Android may be contributing to that growing) using some kind of device management; many are still sending devices out into the wild without proper oversight or management – unaware of the implications or risks associated with supporting a (sometimes fully) mobile and remote workforce. This is even more prevalent in the SMB space. One of the opportunities towards addressing this is via messaging, marketing and enablement through an already well-established platform; NinjaOne’s reach into the IT and MSP space offers a rare opportunity to be heard by many customers who haven’t necessarily thought about mobile device management up to now, and of course many more who haven’t felt they’ve got the tools to make the leap. I’m excited to drive that through NinjaOne’s MDM, and further promote modern Android (and ChromeOS!) management in the coming months alongside my MDM team, Josh & Paul. *I’m still working on projects within the ecosystem in my own time, so feel free as always to get in touch if you’ve a mobility challenge you need assistance with 😊.

  • Samsung announces Knox SDK restrictions for Android 15
    by Jason Bayton on June 15, 2024 at 12:00 am

    Android's Device Administrator (DA) APIs were a cornerstone of device management since their inception way back in Android 2.2. However, with their deprecation in 2017 with Android 9.0 (and obviously prior given AE was introduced in 5.0), Google and the wider ecosystem (👋) has encouraged a shift to the more robust and secure Android Enterprise as DA APIs have slowly faded away. Embracing Android Enterprise provides organisations with better security, enhanced functionality, and clearer data separation. For an in-depth read, see: Google is deprecating device admin in favour of Android Enterprise. What’s the difference between Device Admin and Android Enterprise? Android Enterprise vs Device Admin: Why DA is no longer suitable In contrast, Samsung’s Knox APIs have maintained capabilities for applications outside of Android Enterprise for several years since DA’s deprecation, even while Google has slowly removed said APIs from circulation with newer Android releases. There have been use cases for this, especially around value-add solutions leaning on Knox APIs while devices are managed with other EMM platforms, but With Android 15, this is about to change. In spite of how it looks, it may not be a sudden change of heart from Samsung, as the timing of this aligns closely with upcoming restrictions in Android 15 that appear to make this basically necessary. Samsung's Knox SDK Update # Samsung is restricting access to several of its Knox SDK APIs for use only within the Android Enterprise management framework, gradually phasing out access for non-enterprise apps (or, at least, those enterprise apps not used within scope of Android Enterprise). Starting with Android 15 (Knox 3.11) later in 2024, only apps running as Device or Profile Owners will have access to the relevant Knox SDK features. By late 2025, with Android 16, all Knox SDK APIs will be restricted in the same way. Samsung says this move aims to enhance device security and ensure that advanced features, like remote control capabilities, are only utilised within managed environments. For further details, check Samsung's announcement. The affected APIs for 15 are: SDK Class SDK Method(s) EnterpriseDeviceManager setAdminRemovable ApplicationPolicy installApplication uninstallApplication uninstallApplications updateApplication setApplicationStateList setApplicationComponentState setApplicationInstallationDisabled setApplicationUninstallationDisabled stopApp startApp addPackagesToPreventStartBlackList addPackagesToDisableUpdateWhiteList addPackagesToDisableUpdateBlackList preventNewAdminInstallation preventNewAdminActivation addNewAdminActivationAppWhiteList addAppPackageNameToBlackList addPackageToWhiteList CertificateProvisioning deleteCertificateFromKeystore resetCredentialStorage addPackagesToCertificateWhiteList SystemManager setHardKeyIntentBroadcast SDK Class SDK method(s) RemoteDesktop All methods RemoteInjection All methods And their accessibility: Knox SDK methods AE (DO/PO) apps DA mode apps Other apps DA restricted methods Accessible Not accessible Not accessible Remote control methods Accessible Accessible* Accessible* Other methods Accessible Accessible Not accessible *Accessible in DO/PO Google's Policies for 15 # Google is expected to introduce new, sweeping mandates around custom API development and data access/management for devices launching with or upgrading to Android 15. They define where APIs can target (based on management mode), what they can do (such as special permissions management), and the visibility they provide organisation admins that don't align with that already in AOSP. It feels like the final nail in the coffin of DA and DA functionality outside of Android Enterprise management, and obviously impacts all OEMs (except those building for dedicated use cases alone, it appears so the likes of Zebra, Honeywell, Panasonic, and more may be exempt). Potential impact # For enterprises, this shift presents both challenges and opportunities; the latter in hopefully being a final shove into migrating legacy deployments into Android Enterprise management and off of DA, though for the vendors reliant on these SDKs today for non-AE deployments, it poses a significant and quickly-approaching deadline to work with organisations in allowing functionality to be restored.. of course in some instances this won't be feasible for the use case of the app in question, or the ability for organisations to adapt. It'll be interesting to see what comes of this as 15 rolls out, and I'm sure we'll see plenty of conversations about it over on the Customer Community.

  • VMware SASE and Cloud Web Security
    by virtuallyunboxed on January 22, 2022 at 3:11 pm

    Let's start with the basics! SASE is a Gartner term and is an abreviation of Secure Access Service Edge. Still not much help right? Well lets start explaining this by looking at how people typically work, espeically remotely, and how their traffic is secured. Most of you that ever work remotely will most likely use a device level VPN. This uses software on your device to create a tunnel into your company data centre and allows you to remotely access internal resources. This is how most companies have done it for many years, and it really dates back to the days when all a companies resources were in their own data centre. Tunnelling all the traffic back into the data centre was the perfect way to reach everything a remote user would need.

    I am running into an odd problem while attempting to deploy an application to a few thousand devices. These are all iOS devices, primarily running iOS 16 and 17. The app is CrowdStrike falcon. I'm finding that when I push it to devices, a certain percentage of them will show a status of "removed by user" even though the user does not actually touch the application. In some cases simply pushing the app again will allow it to install, while in others devices will continually show removed by user status even when the user is not touching the application. I have never encountered this with any other applications I have pushed to my device inventory. Anyone ever run into this, and if so what was the cause? submitted by /u/bambamnj [link] [comments]

  • WS1 Legacy App Catalog.
    by /u/MrNRod45 on July 12, 2024 at 4:20 pm

    I know the legacy catalog is getting EOL'd soon but we are in the middle of transition so we are still using the Webclip. My issue is that I've added Google Apps to the Public App section in UEM (i.e. Docs, Drive, Chrome etc.) Everything I have added and assigned shows up in the Catalog except the Gmail app. I've confirmed I added it and assigned with the same setting but it is not showing up. Anyone know where I would check to see if it's hidden or something? I've checked and it's not in the Paid App section. Anywhere else I should look? Edit: I'll add that I have them set up to on demand and they all show up except Gmail. But to test I changed Gmail to Auto Deploy and it did that but still not showing up in the Catalog submitted by /u/MrNRod45 [link] [comments]

  • Intune integration questions/need guise
    by /u/SecretITguy0 on July 11, 2024 at 5:56 am

    We use workspace one for our MDM and I want to start leveraging intune conditional access to prevent usage of work accounts on personal devices. The guides I've come across so far don't seem very comprehensive, does anyone have any good ones? What happens after I add the partner organisation to Azure? Does it immediately pull through devices to be managed via the MFA app? Do I need to be concerned about anything breaking? Currently we have no intune policies set at all. submitted by /u/SecretITguy0 [link] [comments]

  • Certification Questions
    by /u/SuperGlueBandit on July 10, 2024 at 7:54 pm

    Good afternoon all, I picked up the customer connect learning subscription last year, and was looking at moving down the EUC cert path. Since the merger, that content is no longer accessible and I am unable to find anything on any of the cert sites about EUC specific training, its all DCV stuff. Does anyone have any sources, or advice for someone looking to get the VCTA\VCAP-EUC certification? Many thanks in advance! submitted by /u/SuperGlueBandit [link] [comments]

  • VMware Policy Builder
    by /u/Homers_NeRV on July 10, 2024 at 12:03 pm

    Hello, I am trying to login to https://vmwarepolicybuilder.com/ to a build a custom profile to set some registry keys, but I am getting internal 500 errors. I have already tried through incognito, a different browser and also a different device. Is anyone able to login or have a template I could use to create a registry key? For further context, I am trying push the Google Credential Provider for Windows to new devices that are being pre-enrolled with a staging account by including the application in the PPKG file, but I get the "Your Administrator doesn't allow you to sign in with this account. Try a different account." when trying to login with GCPW. Logging in with the local account and running the scheduled task as suggested by Google doesn't work, but manually setting the allowed domains registry does work. I have already tried to push the registry fix via a script, but the device doesn't show up in WS1 until after the first login of a local account and I am trying to avoid this and allow the user to login with GCPW the first time, so that is why I am hoping to apply the registry fix via a profile. Also, pushing GCPW to an already enrolled device works as expected and there is no need to make a registry edit, so for whatever reason it doesn't work when deployed with the PPKG. Update: I was able to setup the registry key with the profile, but I ran into the same issue that the profile isn't picked up until enrolled with the first login. Instead, I have set a synchronous command in the XML to set the registry key, but now I have another issue. Workspace one never gets installed and enrolled with the staging device and I think it is because the GCPW user does not have local admin rights. https://preview.redd.it/nk5akgkzhobd1.png?width=1016&format=png&auto=webp&s=1d9fd296d8ca6f278c9501764e319596790243d9 submitted by /u/Homers_NeRV [link] [comments]

  • Reporting on Script execution (Windows or Mac)
    by /u/d0gztar on July 9, 2024 at 10:26 pm

    Hi all, We have setup several scripts and they are working, however I can't seem to find so far any way to report on the script execution, aside from looking at the Scripts tab of each computer's properties in the console. I combed through Intelligence and didn't find anything so far that seems to be the way to do this, including "Device Events" as you can see in the Events page in the console, but no luck. Any tips, or is this another missing feature? submitted by /u/d0gztar [link] [comments]
