    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. As I mentioned in my post about China, only a few vendors took care of this. In this post we you will... Continue Reading →

  • 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.

    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.

  • What happens to installed apps if the VPP token is changed?
    by /u/boondocktaint on February 26, 2021 at 4:25 pm

    If I set up a new ABM location, then create a token from that location and replace the current token in WS1, will it uninstall the apps from devices that were deployed with the previous token? submitted by /u/boondocktaint [link] [comments]

  • WS1 application deployment
    by /u/simlehot on February 26, 2021 at 3:45 pm

    Hello everybody, I'm currently configuring our environment and I can't wrap my head aroud something.. I am currently deploying an application which requires a license which is in a plist file. This plist is not a part of the DMG. Does anyone have any idea how I could deploy the plist along with the app? I tried to create a plist in the post installation script section but was unsuccessful. Thanks! submitted by /u/simlehot [link] [comments]

  • Determine all local accounts on a device
    by /u/Skyboard13 on February 25, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Hi All, We haven't been able to get an concrete answer from WS1's support team so I thought I would ask here: Does Workspace One have the ability to list all of the local accounts on either a Win10 or MacOS device? And if so, can it list out who are members of the local Administrator group on each device? Thanks so much for your help. submitted by /u/Skyboard13 [link] [comments]

  • Usecase: Android devices needs to turn the display off/on automatically
    by /u/mruserdude on February 22, 2021 at 2:23 pm

    As the title says, we want to deploy Android units that are used in single app mode, but where we can control when the display is active. We won't need a lock-screen code since this will be single app devices. As per now, I actually don't know if the end users will be able to reach the screenlock button as the units will be locked in a casing. What say the masters of r/WorkspaceOne? submitted by /u/mruserdude [link] [comments]

  • Deployment of Outlook failure - IOS
    by /u/hoosedamoose on February 19, 2021 at 12:49 pm

    Hi all, thought I’d ask on here about an issue I’m having pushing out outlook to IOS devices. There’s 3000 DEP supervised devices on the platform and outlook is synced via VPP through apple business manager. For some reason it is failing to install on all devices that are enrolled as directory users. It successfully deploys on devices that have basic accounts. I’ve ensured there are enough licenses for the amount of users and no other conflicts with smart groups etc. The logs show nothing and VMware have no idea why this is happening. Has anyone run into any issues with any other apps? This is the only app that won’t install. submitted by /u/hoosedamoose [link] [comments]

  • How to enroll without "AirWatch Service for Huawei"
    on February 18, 2021 at 8:53 am

    Hi all, My work environment consist a lot of BYOD devices and some of them are Huawei that get enrolled with a work profile. They are personally owned, but work enabled. After the "Airwatch service for Huawei" app has been removed from the PlayStore, we cant enroll them with the hub application. Anyone got any experience with this issue? And hopefully a solution : D Reference:https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/81986 [link] [comments]

  • FYI - Email Notifications Issue
    by /u/JLC510 on February 17, 2021 at 5:19 am

    Just wanted to let anyone out there know if you're using any sort of ENS/SEG setup for email access (either with Boxer or Direct Exchange) email notifications stopped working around Feb 8th for me this month. VMware cloud ENS no longer accepts communication older than TLS 1.2. Our Exchange environment wasn't set for this and though email still came through I got user complaints of email notifications not coming through. If you have the same issue, verify your exchange env is set to use TLS 1.2. submitted by /u/JLC510 [link] [comments]

  • what happened with android and emm?
    by /u/guywhoshouldknow on February 17, 2021 at 1:35 am

    Hello, I manage about 40 android cellphones(company owned) at my job and I recently had to add another which was newer than the rest. When I enrolled the hub stated I had to enroll in Google Enterprise for airwatch/workspaceone to work. i ended up enrolling the account we use to login to google on the phones and then enrollment worked but now it's a completely different set up with a work/personal profile. I'm not even sure if the previous policies are in place, this seems more like a BYOB solution. we really didn't want users linking their own google accounts so we used one account for all phones. we also wanted to lock down what apps can be installed, screenshots, plugging the phone into computers etc etc. it seems like my whole set up will mean nothing now. I'm thinking of just moving away from airwatch all together if i can't keep using it the way we have the last 5 or 6 years now. submitted by /u/guywhoshouldknow [link] [comments]

  • Would you recommend Workspace One for workstation management?
    by /u/CyranoDeBallserac on February 8, 2021 at 4:32 pm

    Hi all, ​ We're starting to look at WS1 as an alternative to Intune/SCCM/Jamf in our environment, primarily because we have a few affiliated companies that are running their own AD/Azure AD, and the multi-tenant capabilities are very appealing. ​ I've had a WS1 demo environment provided to us from VMware, and I have a good general sense of the product and features. The question that I have is looking at reviews of people who have used it, some people say it's full of bugs and not good for workstation management, poor customer support, etc., and others seem to like it. ​ I was hoping some of you would be willing to give your opinions on the product as a whole. Pro's/Con's, would you purchase it again? That kind of thing. ​ Thank you all in advance. submitted by /u/CyranoDeBallserac [link] [comments]

  • iPhone restrictions issues
    by /u/Pretends-To-Know-IT on February 8, 2021 at 4:10 am

    I recently started working with Apple Configurator 2 and added a test iPhone to see how it passed into WS1. The profile I created installed however I noticed several additional restrictions I did not set and can’t find where they live to change the default. The restrictions including blocking install of all apps (even blocked adding apps through Configurator 2). Any ideas where default restrictions for iOS is in WS1? Thanks Edit: I found the setting in Workspace One. Its Groups & Settings > All Settings > Apps > Workspace One > App Restrictions > Restricted Mode for Public iOS Applications. This only runs on iOs 13+ and was selected. I unselected it and was able to open the App Store to pull down what was needed. submitted by /u/Pretends-To-Know-IT [link] [comments]
