What's New

VMware Unified Access Gateway 2212 provides the following new features and enhancements:

  • Enhancements to deployment on cloud platforms.

    Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

    • Added support for deploying Unified Access Gateway image on a GCP project when the image is managed from a different project.

    • Added support for GCP’s shared VPC configurations to be leveraged when deploying Unified Access Gateway on GCP.

    Microsoft Azure

    • Added capability for deployment to a specific availability zone on Microsoft Azure.

    Amazon Web Services (AWS)

    • Added support for deployment from AWS Cloud Shell.

  • Added support for deployment with PowerShell 7 (version 7.2.7) from an Ubuntu machine.

  • Added support in VMware Tunnel for IPv6 subnets in Server Traffic Rules and when performing validation of Device Traffic Rules.

  • When Unified Access Gateway is used as a service provider for SAML integration, Unified Access Gateway’s service provider identity will change when the TLS certificate is refreshed. This aids in the overall IDP and SP certificate refresh workflow and avoids production downtime.

  • Added support for configuring unique settings per Syslog or MQTT server definition.

  • Improved support for special characters in Workspace ONE UEM API server password.

  • Troubleshooting enhancements and logging improvements.

  • Updates to Photon OS package versions and Java component versions.
