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 2010 and a list of the resolved issues and known issues.

New Features in this Release

Documentation

  • Have you seen our new in-page Navigation interface? If not yet, see VMware Workspace ONE UEM Console Documentation.
    We’ve heard your feedback that the traditional nested table of contents (TOC) structure is difficult to use. Starting 2008, you can search and discover content by using our new navigation homepage that is organized according to how you use the product.

    Don't forget, we've removed release-based versioning in our left navigation sidebar. If you are looking for Cloud content, you can select services from the version selector drop-down menu. If you are looking for on-premises documentation, choose the version of Workspace ONE UEM you want to learn about when you land on our content on the VMware Docs site.

    Take a look at our new navigation homepage and tell us what you think. To leave a feedback, go to Workspace ONE UEM Console Documentation, jump to the bottom of our feedback section, and tell us what you like about the new experience.

Credential Escrow Gateway

  • Faster Windows 10 certificate delivery for escrowed SMIME certificates.
    Moving to an event driven model to notify UEM when certificates are uploaded to the Credential Escrow Gateway greatly enhances the speed with which we can deliver escrowed certificates to Windows 10 devices.
    Note: Any certificates uploaded to Escrow Gateway (EG) prior to version 1.2 are no longer compatible. After you have migrated Redis data to EG 1.2+, upload the certificates again using either a v1 or v2 endpoint to be retained for the entire length of your configured retention period.

Freestyle Orchestrator (Preview)

  • Introducing Freestyle Orchestrator (Preview).
    Freestyle Orchestrator is a low-code IT orchestration platform that gives you the flexibility to create workflows for resources such as apps, profiles, and scripts and apply them to devices based on granular criteria. This functionality provides customers the ability to define complex onboarding workflows, go through multi-step processes like upgrading BitLocker with a one-time setup and can additionally be used to target devices based on any device-related criteria. Want to know more? see What is Freestyle Orchestrator.

Android

  • View the "Last Reboot" timestamp in the UEM console under Device Details.
    Would you like to know the last reboot time of your devices as you are troubleshooting or viewing device details? You can now view the "Last Reboot" timestamp in the UEM console under Device Details. For more information, see Device Details.
  • Distribute Applications for closed testing.
    In the UEM console, you can now test and deploy custom internal test tracks of the application before releasing the production version. For more information, see Deploy Private Applications to a Testing Track.

iOS

  • Force log out users of Shared iPads for Business.
    You can now forcefully log out the current user of a Shared iPad to return it to the main lock screen. This allows a new user to pick up and begin using the device. For more information, see Manually Log Out a User.
  • Prevent your Apple devices from randomizing their MAC address.
    iOS 14 brings you a new privacy feature where the MAC address of devices connecting to Wi-Fi will be randomized instead of showing the true hardware MAC address. With Workspace ONE UEM, this can be prevented for targeted Wi-Fi networks.
  • Prevent users from removing any managed iOS applications.
    You can now set any managed apps on iOS 14 devices to be unremovable by users.
  • Set specific domains to be included or excluded in VPN configurations.
    In iOS 14 per-app VPN configurations can set specific domains and subdomains to leverage or avoid the VPN for connections.
  • Deploy your APNs traffic through an HTTP proxy.
    If you are leveraging an HTTP proxy for their Workspace ONE UEM environment, they can choose to send all traffic through the proxy for outbound APNs.
  • Deploy profiles directly to users of Shared iPads for Business.
    Shared iPads for Business can now install profiles directly to users using the user channel for configuring settings like Exchange accounts and SSO extension.

macOS

  • Defer software updates on macOS Big Sur.
    Previously, macOS devices could only defer major OS software updates. In macOS Big Sur, admins can now defer non-OS software updates on macOS devices.
  • Prevent your Apple devices from randomizing their MAC address.
    macOS 11 Big Sur brings you a new privacy feature where the MAC address of devices connecting to Wi-Fi will be randomized instead of showing the true hardware MAC address. With Workspace ONE UEM, this can be prevented for targeted Wi-Fi networks.
  • Set specific domains to be included or excluded in VPN configurations.
    In macOS Big Sur per-app VPN configurations can set specific domains and subdomains to leverage or avoid the VPN for connections.

Windows

  • Make your software deployments easier and more flexible when the installation complete criteria changes.
    You can now edit the When to Call Installation Complete criteria for Windows app deployments. For more information, see Configure Win32 Files for Software Distribution.
  • We've removed support for Windows Phone devices in the Workspace ONE UEM console.
    Windows Phone devices are no longer available in the Workspace ONE UEM console as of the Workspace ONE UEM 2010 release. You will not be able to manage, wipe, or reset the devices from the console. To remove any device management, initiate removal of our Work Account or factory reset the device. For more information, see our KB article on Windows Phone Management will be removed from Workspace ONE 2010.
  • Check out the Technical Preview for Workspace ONE Drop Ship Provisioning (Online).
    Workspace ONE Drop Ship Provisioning for OTA eliminates the need to create and share PPKGs with your hardware manufacturer. Simply assign your payloads to a tag in the Workspace ONE UEM console, and then place an order with your Windows 10 hardware manufacturer using that Workspace ONE UEM tag. Technical preview features are not fully tested and some functionality might not work as expected. However, these previews help Workspace ONE UEM improve current functionality and develop future enhancements. For more information, see our KB article on Technical Preview: Workspace ONE Drop Ship Provisioning for OTA.

Application Management

  • Block access to your Workspace ONE SDK apps when the apps are not managed by EMM on your end-user devices.
    While configuring the app assignment, if you set the EMM Managed Access flag as 'needs EMM management', then the SDK app tries to access the EMM managed app config on the device. If the app is unable to access this information, it indicates that the app is unmanaged and the access to it is blocked. For more information, see Add Assignments and Exclusions to your Applications.

Content Management

  • As part of our efforts around inclusion, we replaced a few offensive terms.
    We’ve implemented a process to evaluate and adopt alternatives for potentially offensive terms in Mobile Content Management console pages.

Email Management

  • The SEG custom settings are now available as key-value pairs in the Workspace ONE UEM console.
    You can now configure the SEG custom settings as key-value pairs in the Workspace ONE UEM console. The commonly used properties are seeded in the Workspace ONE UEM Console. For more information, see SEG Custom Gateway Settings.

Integrate with Azure AD Conditional Access Policies

Rugged

  • Queue Content to Relay Servers without assigning your devices.
    You can now add content to push and pull relay servers (including Relay Server Cloud Connectors) without requiring those servers to have devices enrolled in its associated organization group. This means you can get all the apps and content staged before devices are even enrolled. For more information, see Publish Product to Relay Server.

Scripts and Sensors (Preview)

  • Use Scripts to automate endpoint configurations (Preview).
    Use the new Scripts feature for macOS and Windows Desktop devices to send code to devices to run processes. For example, push a script to macOS devices to reset printer configurations or push a script to Windows Desktop devices to remind users to reboot their machines. To keep sensitive data in your scripts safe, Workspace ONE UEM includes variables to obfuscate information such as email passwords and session tokens. If you integrate your Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub with Scripts, your device users can access these useful scripts any time they want. Scripts display in the Apps section of the Hub catalog. For information about Scripts for Windows Desktop, access Automate Endpoint Configurations with Scripts for Windows Desktop Devices. For details about Scripts on macOS, see Automate Endpoint Configurations with Scripts for macOS Devices
  • Find Sensors in its new place in the navigation and check out the updates (Preview).
    We've moved Sensors under Resources so that you can find it easier. And now, not only can you use Sensors with Windows Desktop, we've added support for macOS. Use scripts in your Sensors to collect all kinds of data that you can view for a single device in that device's Device Details page, on the Sensors tab. This new tab removes the need to use the VMware Workspace ONE Intelligence service. But don't worry, if you do use Intelligence, you can continue to enjoy viewing and interacting with data for multiple devices with reports and dashboards. For more information, see Collect Data with Sensors for Windows Desktop Devices. For details about Sensors for macOS, see Collect Data with Sensors for macOS Devices.

Known Issues

The known issues are grouped as follows.

Apple
  • AAPP-10591: Reporting and customer automation is impacted

    When enrolling a DEP device with Custom Enrollment ON, OSPlatform and OSPlatformString are not being populated.

    As a workaround, disable custom enrollment. 

  • AAPP-10869: Managing Updates iOS ‘Deployment Start date' saves incorrectly.

    Device Updates iOS - Managing Updates iOS ‘Deployment Start date' saves incorrectly.

  • 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.

Console
  • FCA-194884 : You can bookmark freestyle page multiple times and upon deletion of duplicate bookmark freestyle page breaks.

    In an OG admin is allowed to bookmark any page only once but if the freestyle page is set as the initial landing page then using the bookmark icon admin can bookmark the freestyle page multiple times.

     

    As a workaround, instead of icon admin should use the bookmark button for freestyle page bookmarking.

  • FCA-194720​: Admin can perform create and edit action in workflow with freestyle read only resource.

    Admin can add/delete/edit resources like apps, profile & scripts in workflow with custom admin role who has only access to view and navigate through freestyle page.

  • FCA-194795​: Admin will not be able to see all available action items from workflow steps if it's listed in bottom of the page.

    Add workflow using multiple steps and condition so that admin reaches till bottom of the page, from last step if admin clicks on ellipsis then all available actionable items are not seen.

    As a workaround, admin can access last step actionable items by collapsing the previous step of workflow.

  • FCA-194585​: In If-Then-Else block, Else step is not getting deleted from the workflow upon deletion of If step.

    Admin creates workflow using If-Then-Else step and after that admin deletes If step. With If Step Then steps are getting removed but else step remains as it is in workflow.

    As a workaround, admin can individually delete the else step from workflow.

  • FCA-194661: In Workflow admin panel script resource is appearing twice.

    Create workflow and add script resource under else group condition. Now, if admin clicks on the main condition block then in admin panel two script steps are getting shown. It's not affecting the functionality of workflow however it gives wrong visual impression that script steps are added twice.

    As a workaround, admin can verify the steps from workflow details page.

  • ENRL-2278: Device FriendlyName displays device storage and model number.

    Device FriendlyName is having device storage and model number until the Done button in Hub is clicked 

Tunnel
  • PPAT-7896​: VPN Profile installation fails if the customer moves from the third party to AirWatch CA for the client authentication. 

    Signing cert won't get generated & updated while migrating from Third Party Client Authentication to AirWatch, which would cause the VPN profile to fail on iOS,macOS & AFW devices

    As a workaround, click the regenerate option for under the client authentication section under the Tunnel configuration page and publish the profile

Mobile Content Management
  • CMCM-188782​: Delay in renaming a folder on SP. 

    Renaming Folder in Sharepoint and trying to sync returns a 404 error or an empty XML

    As a workaround, wait for sometime after renaming the folder and wait for the sync to complete. 

  • CMCM-188551: Unable to edit and save user repositories from the "User Repositories" page. 

    Redundant edit settings for user repository. 

    As a workaround, The repository can be edited from the main page. 

  • 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.  

Rugged
  • RUGG-9133​: Unable to enroll rugged device after console upgrade to 2010

    If  you generate the new barcode with old package in Console, the enrollment fails.

    As a workaround, please save the package first and then generate the barcode.
