VMware Workspace ONE UEM Release Notes provide information on the new features and improvements in each release. This page includes a summary of the new features introduced for 1910, a list of our resolved issues and known issues

New Features in this Release

  • We've made enhancements to the /users/ API.
    The GET /users/{uuid} and POST /users/ APIs now include new attributes such as aadMappingAttribute, department, employeeIdentifier, costCenter, customAttribute1, customAttribute2, customAttribute3, customAttribute4, and customAttribute5.
  • We've added a new API that automatically syncs User groups and Admin groups into the Console from the Active Directory or LDAP.
    Previously, administrators had to manually log in to the console to perform a group sync. We now have an API for the group sync action that enables automation. The new GET /GroupSyncActions/{uuid} API grabs the approval status of a group with the access token and a link to merge that group. The result also includes the details of members added to and removed from the group. The new POST /GroupSyncActions API merges the User groups or the Admin groups that are in the "Approval Request Pending" state.
  • The System help page under All settings > Admin > Diagnostics lost its home. But we’ve made sure to retain some of its functionality it served for the cloud connector.
    You can now check the cloud connector status by using Test Connection. It gives you the same information as the System health check page did.
  • Display a personalized message when removing a work profile on an end user’s device.
    You can now choose to show your end-users a personalized message when you decide to remove a work profile.
  • We've increased security around non-strong authentication methods and passcode change notifications.
    The Passcode profile provides better security around non-strong authentication methods and passcode change notification.The Passcode Required Range lets you specify how much time elapses after the device has been unlocked with the non-strong authentication before the user is prompted to enter the passcode. The Passcode Change Alert text box lets you specify the amount of time prior to the passcode expiration that the user is notified to change their passcode.
  • We've upgraded the Launcher profile with additional configurations.
    You can now enable/disable Home and enable/disable Keyguard option in the Android Enterprise Launcher Profile.
  • Securely manage user and device level certificates with the Workspace ONE UEM Extension for Chrome OS.
    The Workspace ONE UEM Extension for Chrome OS automatically installs on managed devices to provide secure provisioning of both user and device-based Microsoft ADCS certificates,and seamless connectivity to WiFi and web applications. Additionally, direct communication with the UEM console enables a faster device sync after enrollment and enhanced device visibility.
  • Remotely disable devices that have been lost or stolen with Lost Mode for Chrome OS.
    Lost mode for Chrome OS allows you to remotely disable devices that have been lost or stolen, and allows them to set a custom message displayed on the lock screen through the Chrome OS device profile. While disabled, the device cannot be used for any purpose. Devices can be re-enabled remotely once they are found.
  • Empower your apps with additional capabilities by remotely associating domains.
    Configure any domains that need association with their in-house or the third-party apps without manually including them in the app's entitlements file. This association can be used for advanced capabilities like SSO extension, universal links, and shared credentials. To know more, see Add Assignments and Exclusions to Applications.
  • Avoid the delays of accepting prompts and quickly get your students engaged with their apps.
    Students with Managed Apple IDs created in the Apple School Manager are no longer required to accept any prompts to install apps and books. Workspace ONE silently accepts these prompts on the Managed Apple ID's behalf with no admin interaction.
  • Take advantage of the latest communication standards for Apple Push Notifications.
    Communicate with Apple devices over HTTP/2 for Device Management and delivering push notifications to VMware Productivity Applications.
  • Use Sensors to monitor your 64-bit Windows 10 devices.
    Sensors for Windows Desktop Devices now supports controlling when PowerShell scripts execute based on the device architecture. You can limit a script to 32-bit or 64-bit only or force a script to run as 32-bit regardless of the device architecture. This enhancement reduces errors when using Sensors for 64-bit devices.
  • Know how your devices comply with your Baselines.
    The UEM console now reports a device's compliance to a specific Baseline. See the current compliance status of devices to the published policies of a baseline. Baseline compliance reporting uses a 15% compliance threshold before marking a device non-compliant.
  • Our Smart Groups are not just smart, they are flexible too. Start creating OEM-specific Smart Groups for your Windows Desktop Devices.
    We've added Windows Desktop OEM and Model Support to Smart Groups.
  • We’re working on a technical preview for Digital Employee Experience Management for Windows 10 deployments.
    Digital Employee Experience Management is a collaboration between Workspace ONE UEM and Workspace ONE Intelligence. With this feature enabled, the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Windows sends telemetry data to Intelligence about OS and app stability and usage.
    In a soon-to-be-released version of Intelligence, you can see your data in dashboards to know what is working and what needs fixing. Use the dashboards to focus on specific analytics and use automations to mitigate possible issues and to fix problems when they happen.
    If you’re interested in starting to collect data, call your customer service representative to turn on this feature.
  • Experience consistent application status tracking on all your devices.
    We've enhanced different areas of the UEM console that deal with application deployment monitoring. The Workspace ONE UEM console now monitors apps and provides detailed application status based on the device reports and logs the actions taken in the UEM console.
  • We've added Device Traffic Rules support for Workspace ONE Tunnel on macOS.
    Create granular policies for use-cases like split-tunneling and domain filtering for macOS applications. Add apps and policies from the Tunnel's Device Traffic Rules and deliver them as a part of existing profiles.

    With iOS 13 release, the key "Allow removal" is valid for supervised devices only. UI needs to be updated with the tag. 

    As a workaround, edit the profile to uncheck the "Allow removal" key on the General Payload. 

  • AAPP-8165: Uploading an app with extension fails when payload is not specified directly under IPA.

    Uploading an app with extension fails when specifying the payload in the swift support folder instead of having it directly under IPA.

    If staging enrollment is used and no compliance policy is set, then the compliance policy is always displayed as not available on the device list view page.

    As a workaround, set a compliance policy and the status will update correctly. 

  • CMCM-18831: Auto-refresh does not work as expected. 

    Multiple File Delete doesn't always pick up on auto-refresh.

    As a workaround, wait for a day for the purge script to delete older token values or delete the user account and recreate with UPN details.

  • PPAT-6111: Adding an NSX host address on VMware Tunnel configuration results in page crashes with the error "An error has occurred".
