  • 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.

Even though I’ve never used PowerBI before, after... Continue Reading →

    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.

  • 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.

I am currently setting it up for beta testing and I don’t like how Zscaler has an installer app to install another app. I am deploying the installer app and then having a post install script launch the actual Zscaler client. It works fine and the app works great. However, for the app to show “installed” in WS1 the Zscaler installer app has to stay on the Mac so a user will see two Zscaler apps in their launchpad (the actual app and the installer app) which I know will cause potential confusion with our end users. I’m trying to figure out a way to hide the installer application without WS1 thinking the app is uninstalled. Putting a . At the beginning makes WS1 see the app as uninstalled and it tries to reinstall it. Any advice? submitted by /u/dmort_93 [link] [comments]

  • Workspace One Requires Admin rights on Windows 10???
    by /u/Skyboard13 on May 11, 2021 at 2:13 pm

    Hi Folks, We were just told by Workspace One Support that, in order for WS1 to work correctly, the local user should have admin rights. Can anyone confirm this? I'm flabbergasted that this is necessary since it completely negates the need for an MDM and I can't imagine that there are massive corporations running around with everyone as an admin. submitted by /u/Skyboard13 [link] [comments]

  • Reassigning a Windows Desktop to a different user from the admin portal
    by /u/FloppySpiderOfTheSea on May 6, 2021 at 7:44 pm

    Hello! Is it possible to reassign a Windows 10 device in the workspace one portal without enterprise wiping the device and re-registering it? Our environment is set to auto-enroll the first user who logs in, which typically results in the person staging the PC being the enrolled user. Is there a way to reassign without unenrolling or enterprise wiping? Thanks! submitted by /u/FloppySpiderOfTheSea [link] [comments]

  • I can enroll devices (ipads) fine up untill intelligent hub, i can download a profile but the installation says it can't connect to the server.
    by /u/hexdmage on May 4, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    I'm currently dead in the water trying to figure this out, a former collegue who set this up has taken another job and i've been figuring workspace one out on the go. The entire enrollment process with apple business manager and configurator is working and the enrollment is compliant and complete. I can download intelligent hub it finds the server and group id, can download the profile but installation always fails with the error "cannot connect to server". Does anyone have any pointers on where i should be looking? Google has gotten me nowhere as i've been reading threads for days. submitted by /u/hexdmage [link] [comments]

  • Migrate from VMware Verify to DUO for 2FA Authenication
    by /u/renamed on May 3, 2021 at 5:27 pm

    Greetings, we want to migrate from VMWare Verify to DUO in WorkSpace One. We have everything setup between DUO and WorkSpace One Access (Vmware Identify manager) based on this article... https://techzone.vmware.com/blog/integrating-duo-workspace-one-access We have Microsoft ADFS as our IdP configured in Workspace One Access. When we make a change in the policies to use DUO instead of VMware Verify, i get a WorkSpace One access denied page after i enter in my creds on the ADFS page. Is there something i have to do to make DUO work? submitted by /u/renamed [link] [comments]

  • iOS: it possible to use WsONE vpn Tunnel with Edge app ?
    by /u/GeekgirlOtt on May 2, 2021 at 12:28 am

    In tunnel configuration, it only gives the option of Safari or web (wsone browser ?). We can add other apps there for Windows or MAC only. We do have it engaging successfully there for Safari. In apps & books, with Edge loaded as a purchased app and device assignment, it's set with a per-app vpn profile which is assigned to the user also. Content filter is set to block, but with no entries. VPN is not engaging when using Edge. submitted by /u/GeekgirlOtt [link] [comments]

  • troubleshooting RunCommand : Source file is not present
    by /u/FrankZappasXylophone on April 26, 2021 at 2:13 pm

    I'm trying to deploy a powershell script by putting the .ps1 file in Components | Files/Action Then creating the Product to deploy in Product List View. The .ps1 file is successfully copying to the remote laptop but it is never running. The Product forever shows the laptop as In Progress when I view the history on the job I get the "RunCommand : Source file is not present" message. The .ps1 file never appears to even be attempted to run on the local machine. I have a very basic write to file line first thing in the script to check for this. The script runs just fine when I manually run it locally. submitted by /u/FrankZappasXylophone [link] [comments]

  • Multiple devices restarting
    by /u/t1des51 on April 26, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    Hello! First off, let me say I am extremely new to Workspace one and have been tasked with setting up profiles for all our production environment devices. Been super fun learning a platform for MDM, but I have yet to find a way to take a smart group of devices and push out a restart to all devices that live in that group. I know you can do this per device, but was wondering if this can be done across multiple devices? I’m not looking for a road map how to do it l, more or less looking to know if this is even possible. Thank you! submitted by /u/t1des51 [link] [comments]

  • Scripting
    by /u/spongeym on April 23, 2021 at 11:11 am

    As you can tell from other posts, I'm new to WS1 in terms of building the environment from scratch. I've got an environment with over 300 locations in numerous regions and want to structure it in a way that I put the locations into separate Organisations so handsets can be deployed to each region, then I can add specific apps to specific regions. Is there a way to import/script this? Seem like a huge amount of work to do essentially an import of a huge spreadsheet!! submitted by /u/spongeym [link] [comments]

  • Enrollment Corporate Devices vs BYOD?
    by /u/Junior-Kiwi-9015 on April 21, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    Hi Everyone, Hopefully someone will be able to provide some insights. We use WS1 for both corporate devices and allow BYOD mostly on the mobile side (iOS & Android). We have our corporate Apple devices flowing over from DEP fine which get marked as corporate devices. I am interested to see how one may deal with the laptop/desktop side. For example if using Microsoft Autopilot and associated Microsoft Business Store to hold the device IDs is there a way to enroll devices into a particular WS1 Organization Group and mark as corporate device? I am a bit confused in general on how WS1 logic works in terms of what Organization Group a device would get placed into and if it gets assigned as corporate device or not. Thanks for any feedback! submitted by /u/Junior-Kiwi-9015 [link] [comments]
