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 2008 and a list of the resolved issues and known issues.

When can I expect the latest version?

We strive to deliver high-quality products, and to ensure quality and seamless transitions, we roll out our products in phases. Each rollout may take up to four weeks to accomplish and is delivered in the following phases:

  • Phase 1: Demo and UATs
  • Phase 2: Shared SaaS environments
  • Phase 3: Dedicated latest environments

Once our phased rollout is complete, we will announce general availability for on-premises and managed hosted customers. For more information, see the KB article

New Features in this Release

 

Documentation

  • Welcome to the new navigation homepage that helps get you where you want to go.
    We are launching a new navigation homepage that speeds your documentation discovery. The page shows you what’s available in our documentation portal, sets you in the right direction, and helps you get started. We've grouped our documentation into logical buckets to help narrow down what you are looking for. Like to explore? See VMware Workspace ONE UEM Documentation.

Console

  • Migrate your existing catalog settings from Workspace ONE UEM to Workspace ONE Hub services.
    Starting September 2020 with Hub Services Cloud instance, you can migrate your existing catalog settings from Workspace ONE UEM to Workspace ONE Hub services. For more information, see Setting Up the Hub Catalog.
    Note: Currently we do not support Hub Templates capability to on-premise Hub Services customers. It will be made available at a future time, and we will keep you informed.

iOS

  • Skip the latest iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur onboarding screens.
    You can now skip the latest Setup Assistant screens such as Accessibility, Update Complete, and Restore Complete screens.
  • Prevent users from accepting App Clips.
    You can now prevent iOS 14 devices from viewing a new feature called App Clips where a user can view and interact with a small portion of a larger app binary without downloading the full app itself.
  • Override existing passwords while configuring native mail.
    In iOS 14, you can now choose to override a previous password on a device when installing an Exchange ActiveSync email profile.
  • Control your apps notification previews in iOS 14.
    If an installed app is receiving push notifications displayed to the user, admins can prevent the content of the notification from being displayed if the device is locked.

macOS

  • Onboard your macOS devices with true zero-touch.
    You can now simply plug in your new Mac computers into ethernet and power them on. With Auto Advance configured in Workspace ONE UEM, macOS devices will be automatically onboard, skipping all required screens with no user interaction.

Android

  • Detect and monitor network activity on your corporate owned devices.
    You can enable Network Logging for Android devices deployed through Work Managed enrollment. When active, Android records DNS requests and network connections from apps to a log file for the specified duration via the Request Device Log command. This option is only available for Work managed devices running Android 8 and higher.

Application Management

  • Configure Workspace ONE Boxer to support multiple managed accounts.
    You can now use the Boxer application to manage your multiple email accounts assigned with different settings. This capability comes with Boxer version 5.21 or later and requires SSO activation.

Credential Escrow Gateway

  • Credential Escrow Gateway now supports Multi Managed Account and Single Account for iOS and Android Boxer.
    You can now upload a list of encryption certificates and/or a list of signing certificates (with each certificate used by a single email account or multiple managed accounts) to Escrow Gateway using a new endpoint for uploading certificates (v2). This extends our support to full Boxer functionality and native mail clients.

Content Management

  • Don't be surprised if the "Use Legacy Settings and Policies configuration" is not seen in the Content Legacy Settings.
    To avoid conflicts between the Content Legacy configuration settings and the other SDK settings, the Use Legacy Settings and Policies configuration setting under System Settings > Content > Applications > Workspace ONE Content App has been deprecated. The assigned SDK profile will now be the supported mechanism for delivering the DLP policies to the Workspace ONE Content app. For more information, see Configure VMware Workspace ONE Content.

Rugged

  • Workspace ONE Launcher now shows you the install status only if its relevant for the device record.
    We've made some user interface changes to Workspace ONE UEM Launcher. You will now only be able to see the install status of Launcher in the Workspace ONE UEM console Device Details if the device is assigned to a multi-user staging user or the Launcher profile is assigned to a device. For more information, see Workspace ONE Launcher Status.
  • We've added string comparison support to Product Provisioning.
    When making an assignment rule, comparisons using the less than (<) and greater than (>) operators (and their variants) continue to only be applicable to comparisons of strictly numerical values. The new exception is when you are comparing OEM build versions, you can apply < and > operators on non-numerical ASCII strings. An example is when an OEM update filename includes hyphens, periods, and other characters together with numbers. Such assignment rules must identify a device manufacturer in the rule logic and that comparison is deemed accurate when the format on the device matches the one specified on the server.

Tunnel

  • SDK Tunneling now supports 3rd party Certificate Authorities for Client Auth.
    Tunneling with the Workspace ONE Web app or any other apps you may build with the Tunnel component in SDK natively supports the secure SCEP CA integrated into your UEM services. Now we also support your other certificate authorities for use with Tunnel. For details about embedded tunneling with Workspace ONE Web. For more information, see AirWatch App Tunnel.
  • Reach internal SMB domains from Files on iOS through the Workspace ONE Tunnel app.
    You can now access internal SMB file shares through the Files app on iOS. The app is already seeded and available for configuration through the Device Traffic Rules on the Tunnel Configuration page. For details about configuring both mobile and desktops for app-tunneling rules.For more information, see Create Device Traffic Rules.

Known Issues

The known issues are grouped as follows.

Apple
  • AAPP-10604​: When tags are associated with the enrollment token of an Apple Business Manager device, the device cannot be enrolled.

    When the device enrollment mode is set to "registered devices only," "require registration token" is enabled, and Apple Business Manager is configured and enrollment records are created for these devices, they may fail to enroll if a tag has been associated to these records.

    As a workaround, remove tags from these records and assign post-enrollment.

  • AAPP-10660​: VPP auto-update fails when iTunes API is called for country "HK"

    When the VPP s-token is created with HK as the country, auto-update will fail for device-based VPP applications.

  • AAPP-10322​: When Do Not Disturb is turned on in an iOS device, UEM wrongly displays as 'AW Do Not Disturb Until'

    When Do Not Disturb is turned on in an iOS device, UEM wrongly displays as 'AW Do Not Disturb Until' on the device details summary page

  • AAPP-10665​: Unable to see the phone number of iOS multi-sim devices (e-sim phone number).

    When an iOS multi-sim device is enrolled, one phone number is displayed for both the physical and e-sim numbers.

  • AAPP-10556​: Install profile command for iOS single app mode is not released immediately after the application list sample is received. 

    The install profile command for single app mode is not released immediately after the scheduled application list sample is received upon DEP enrollment and will remain in held status until the next scheduled application list sample is received (few hours to a day).

    As a workaround, query the device from the device list view or device details view to trigger single app mode installation command immediately.

  • MACOS-1887: Unable to deploy Intelligent Hub (automatic installation post-enrollment), Bootstrap Packages, and Apple Business Manager (VPP) apps on macOS 11 Big Sur

    The "Require admin password to install or update apps" (restrict-store-require-admin-to-install) key has been deprecated in macOS 10.14. In macOS 11 Big Sur, installing a profile with this key will, unfortunately, cause apps deployed via native MDM commands to fail. 

    As a workaround, clear the setting for "Require admin password to install or update apps" in any macOS Restrictions profile being deployed to a macOS 11+ device.

Android
  • AGGL-8311: The metadata related to the name, bundle ID, and version of the internal android application APK is not parsed while uploading into UEM console.

    When APKs are built using the latest build tool, there is a change in the encoding of the Android Manifest file, resulting in a failure to parse the metadata values. The end-user can manually enter the values and process with the publish which goes through fine

    As a workaround, manually enter the application identifier, version, and name details.

Content
  • CMCM-188952: The expiry date of a file is always one day more than what's set on the console.

    Set an expiry date for any file in the Managed Content section on the console. Sync the device and check the info of that file. The expiry date of a file is always one day more than what's set on console. 

    As a workaround, set the date one day prior to your intended expiration date.  

Windows
  • AMST-32922: Windows Desktop App added via BSP is failing to install on the device.

    The issue arises when BSP apps are imported for Windows Phone and the same app is supported on the Windows Desktop platform and admin imports for Windows Desktop. In such a case, the BSP app installation on Windows Desktop fails.
