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 1912, a list of our resolved issues and known issues

New Features in this Release

  • VMware Identity Manager is now Workspace ONE Access.
    Our Intelligent Access for the Digital Workspace is now called Workspace ONE Access.
  • We've enhanced the console response for deleted devices.
    When you delete a device from the console, the response you see no longer conceals the device's friendly name, allowing you to identify it.
  • It’s time to upgrade your .net framework to 4.8.
    For the VMware AirWatch Cloud Connector to auto-update, servers which have ACC installed needs .NET Framework 4.8.
  • 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.
  • PIV-D Manager is not limited to Android Legacy devices anymore. PIV-D Manager now supports Android Enterprise devices.
    Push the PIV-D Manager to your Android Enterprise deployment. Use it with Workspace ONE Boxer, Web, Wi-Fi, and VPN systems along with your derived credential provider. This iteration does not support using Gmail with derived credentials on Android Enterprise. For details, access Use Profiles to Control How Android (Enterprise) Devices use Derived Credentials Certificates.
  • Keep your iOS devices up to date and running the latest, feature-rich iOS releases.
    Manage the operating system updates of your iOS devices with the new Updates framework. With the new framework, you can force devices to download and install any iOS update available for the device. You can also notify users when each step finishes. A new reporting dashboard allows you to track the rollout of each update to your devices and drill into specific devices for a more detailed list of updates for the device.
  • Experience a modern UI for User Enrollment and Custom Enrollment.
    Users enrolling with the newly released User Enrollment for BYOD and Custom Enrollment for devices added to Apple Business Manager will experience a modern and refreshed interface to align with Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub's enrollment view.
  • Provide additional controls to your corporate iOS 13+ devices for Wi-Fi and the Files app.
    You can now force on Wi-Fi for iOS 13 supervised devices as well as prevent connections to network drives from the Files app in the Restriction Profile.
  • Better deploy Custom Apps by seeing rich metadata in the Workspace ONE UEM console.
    You can now automatically sync in the metadata for Custom Apps being added via integration to Apple Business Manager similar to how public apps are achieved. For more information, see Activate Management of Custom Applications.
  • HelpDesk support just got easier with the cross-platform remote assist solution.
    Workspace ONE Assist is now available for macOS.For more information, see Remote View.
  • Enhanced security for managing local admin account with a unique randomized password for each device that can be viewed in the admin console.
    We've improved security for managing local admin account on macOS. Workspace ONE UEM also takes it a step further and automatically triggers a password rotation in 8 hours of when someone attempts to view the password in the console for a particular device.
  • We now automaticaly remediate devices missing the required certificates.
    We've improved the desired state management of macOS certificates by automatically remediating devices missing required certificates. To know more, see Certificate Profile Resiliency.
  • Control when your Windows 10 devices update with the improved Windows Update profile.
    We've enhanced the Windows Update profile to improve the user experience. We've condensed some fields, removed legacy options, and reorganized the layout a bit. We've also added the new Active Hours Maximum option that allows you to limit the number of active hours for device updates. You can also set reboot deadlines based on the type of update with the Engaged Restart Deadline options.
  • Creating Baselines is easier with our improved UI.
    We've improved the user experience for creating Baselines. Navigate custom policies easier with the new vertical layout. Reviewing additional policies is easier with the new collapsible layout.
  • Know the build your Windows 10 devices are using.
    We've improved the Device Details page to show the latest patch version or 4th decimal of the OS version of your Windows 10 devices under the Build Number field.
  • We've stopped collecting personal app information from your devices, even while enforcing app compliance or app control policies.
    We've made some changes to the personal app information collection when you set the privacy policy as ‘Do not collect'. For more information, see the Impact of Privacy Settings on the Application List Compliance and Application Control profile.
  • We’ve improved the user experience for all your Windows app installation.
    You can now choose to defer reboots until a more convenient time, or install multiple applications and reboot once they have all installed. For more information, see Device Restart.
  • Managing your existing Manual Templates just got easier.
    You can now add links to an existing template.
  • Rotate your G Suite Password without all the hassle as before.
    Rotate the Google Suite password for G Suite user accounts without having to enroll or unenroll a device.
  • We've added support for domain usernames in Stage Now relay server credentials.
    You can now use domain-based usernames to authenticate Stage Now relay servers. Accepted formats for domain usernames are username@domain and domain\username. For more information, see Step 3 in Zebra Stage Now Special Characters, Android.
  • We're making your VMware launcher experience as close as possible to that of the native launchers. Pin icons to the hot seat bar and vice versa while using Workspace ONE Launcher.
    Add an app to the bottom bar while using Workspace ONE Launcher. This bar remains visible as users swipe to different launcher screens.

  • AMST-21542: The compliance policy displays "Not Available" on the device list view for certain users.
