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 2011 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

Console

  • VMware Terms of Service Update.
    Are you a new customer opting into Hub Services or Workspace ONE Access from UEM? You'll no longer see the VMware Terms of Service if you've already accepted the Terms of service in the UEM Console.
  • Update the Outbound Proxy Tooltip content to include restarting of all AirWatch services.
    When saving the global proxy setting all AirWatch services make outbound requests depending on the initiated flow as a result we updated the tooltip content to include restarting of all AirWatch services.
  • Compromised Device Status Details Available for iOS.
    Administrators can now review specific reasons as to why an iOS device is deemed compromised, enabling the admin to share this info with the device user. Navigate to the Device Details page for the compromised iOS device and select the More > Compromised Detection tabs to review details about the compromised status. For more information, see Device Details.
  • The location privacy settings on Workspace One UEM defaults to “Do not Collect”.
     The location privacy settings viz. Bluetooth, USB data, and GPS data would have a default value set to “Do not Collect”. For more information, see Location privacy settings

Chrome OS

  • Configure certificates with or without a wi-fi network.
    We have updated the profiles to split the certificates section of the Network profile into a new Credentials profile. After upgrade, all existing certificates are migrated to the Credentials profile and you can configure certificates with or without a wi-fi network. Want to know more? see Configure Credentials profile.
  • More easily migrate Chrome EMM Registration between consoles.
    To support migrating your Chrome EMM Registration from one environment to another, when you clear Chrome settings in the UEM console, all Chrome OS device records are cleared out, all Certificates pushed to Chrome users and/or devices from the console are revoked, and the UEM Extension is removed from devices. Want to know more? see Setup Chrome OS Configuration Settings. Want to know more? see Setup Chrome OS Configuration Settings.

Android

  • Did you know there have been changes to Android management using device administrator (Android Legacy)?.
    We have updated the UEM console to make Android enterprise the default deployment model for Android devices, and the legacy Android management model (also known as device administrator) will be accessible by exception. Android enterprise is custom-tailored for bring-your-own-device (BYOD), corporate-owned, and dedicated device modes, each with unique management controls and user experiences. For more information about this change, see Upcoming Changes to Android Management Using Device Administrator (Android Legacy). .

iOS

  • Monitor, logout, and delete the users on your Shared iPads.
    Admins with Shared iPads for Business can now track the users that exist on their devices as well as forcing these users to logout or even be deleted. Want to know more? See Monitor, Logout, and Delete a User.
  • Improve your device update experience by skipping some or all screens on iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur 11.0 devices.
    You can now deploy a Skip Setup Assistant payload and choose to the skip the setup screens after an OS update. For more information, see Configure a Setup Assistant Profile. For more information, see Configure a Setup Assistant Profile .

macOS

  • macOS 11 Big Sur updates to Bootstrap Token.
    Bootstrap Token has been enhanced to support macOS Big Sur. Bootstrap Token escrow status details can now be retrieved with Console APIs for Device Information, and Event Logs now display Bootstrap Token removals. For more information, see MDM Bootstrap Token.
  • macOS SSO Extension profile in User context.
    Starting from macOS Big Sur, admins can now create the SSO Extension profile in either device or user context based on deployment needs. Want to know more? see Configure an SSO Extension Profile.

Application Management

  • Sort your internal apps by the date-time they were created and filter them by the source they were added from.
    We've added two new columns to the internal app list view page. The CreatedOn column lets you sort the apps based on the app creation timestamp and the Source column lets you filter apps based on the application source.

Content Management

  • We've automated repository addition for you through APIs.
    You can now add repositories using APIs instead of adding repositories manually on the UEM console.
  • We've announced end of support for the Personal Content portion of the Workspace ONE Content solution.
    End of General Support for VMware Workspace ONE Personal Content.Want to know more? see End of support announcement.

Tunnel

  • Explicit Security with NSX-T.
    Tunnel NSX integration now supports NSX-T. With this, you can specify explicit paths between your apps on devices and services in your data center. For more information, see Integrating VMware Tunnel with NSX.
  • Smart Groups for Device Traffic Rules.
    Looking to enforce Zero Trust policies for application access? You can now create multiple policies for Device Traffic Rules and assign them to individual profiles, helping you achieve least-privilege based access policies. For more information, see Create Device Traffic Rules.

Known Issues

The known issues are grouped as follows.

Console
  • ARES-17237: The lookup filed will not be resolved while accessing through SSP.

    The profile entity with all the resolved lookup values was discarded and the entity is loaded again from DB. Because of this, the EAS profile is not populated with user details.

    As a workaround, install from the admin console.

  • ARES-17539: The lookup variable "EmailAddressPrompt" for the iOS EAS profile does not pick the value specified in SSP.

    When using SSP, the lookup field is not resolved. The profile entity with all of the resolved lookup values was discarded, and the entity was loaded from the database again. As a result, the EAS profile is not populated out with user information.

    As a workaround, install from the admin console.

  • CMSVC-14182​: Assign Tags are seen when a device is selected. 

    A deprecated feature is exposed. Might lead to confusion. 

  • ARES-18495: Customers are unable to access the Provisioning Application Component page, which prevents them from viewing or adding applications.

    If you follow these steps, you can see the "An error has occurred" page.

    1. Log into WS1 UEM Console.
    2. Navigate to Devices > Provisioning > Components > Application.
    3. Add an application to any of the Major, Minor, or Build versions greater than 32767.
    4. Save the application and navigate back to Devices > Provisioning > Components > Application.

    As a workaround, use the MAM Delete API to delete the specific application that has a version field greater than 32767 and is causing the issue. If the same application is uploaded again, the same issue can arise. This workaround is allowed for temporary unblocking for other applications to be added.

Apple
  • AAPP-11143: Valid APNs for Apps certificates are replaced with invalid certs when upgrading to a version of UEM that has outdated certs 

    Valid APNs for Apps certificates are replaced with invalid certs. 

    As a workaround, run the APNs cert custom seed script again after the upgrade

  • 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.

Content Management
  • CMCM-188854: Renaming Folder in Sharepoint and trying to sync is giving 404 or an empty XML.

    Error message is displayed in the user interface. 

     

  • 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.  

Tunnel
  • PPAT-7896​: Signing cert won't get generated & updated in few scenarios. 

    VPN Profile installation fails if the customer moves from the third party to AirWatch CA for the client authentication and when they delete and re-add the tunnel configuration

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

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.
