What's in the Release Notes

VMware Workspace ONE Boxer for iOS Release Notes details new features and enhancements in each release. This page contains a summary of the new capabilities, resolved issues, and known issues reported in each version.

NOTE: To standardize the configuration of our productivity applications, in VMware Workspace ONE Boxer 22.05, we will be removing the key AppForceActivateSSO from the Application Configuration settings. Workspace ONE Boxer will function as though it has AppForceActivateSSO enabled with a passcode set in SDK settings. If you are using the Workspace ONE Boxer passcode, you will need to set up and configure an SSO passcode in SDK settings. Please see the KB article to ensure you are ready for this migration in the next release of Workspace ONE Boxer.

Workspace ONE Boxer 22.05 for iOS - May 2022

New Features

  • Migration from App level to SDK passcode for standalone enrolled devices

    • Workspace ONE Boxer passcode settings are ignored for standalone enrolled devices.
    • Passcode settings are present in the Workspace ONE UEM Console SDK settings (Console at Groups & Settings > All Settings > Apps Settings and Policies > Security Policies > Authentication Type)
    • Administrators must set passcode settings in the Workspace ONE SDK SSO password/passcode settings for their users to continue using the passcode/password on Workspace ONE Boxer.
    • For more information about the deprecation of Workspace ONE Boxer app passcode for standalone enrolled devices, see the KB article.
  • [Optional] KVP for Resource URL for ENS

    • PolicyENSResourceURL is a new, account-based KVP, of type string.
    • This KVP is used only for hybrid modern authentication with Resource URL and not the O365 URL.
    • When the KVP is enabled, administrators can configure a specific Resource URL.
    • To fetch the oAuth access token, Workspace ONE Boxer and ENS (Email Notification Service) must use the configured Resource URL. Hence, Workspace ONE Boxer must share the Resource URL with ENS as part of the register request payload.

    • iOS 13 or later

Workspace ONE Boxer 22.03 for iOS - March 2022

New Features

  • Native share sheet

    • Native share sheets allow sending images, videos, links, files, and text directly from any native iOS application to Workspace ONE Boxer. 
    • The feature displays the Workspace ONE Boxer icon among the other sharing options every time a user taps the sharing icon for a particular content. 
    • When the Workspace ONE Boxer sharing option is selected, the user is redirected to the Compose Email screen where the content selected to share is already placed. 
    • This feature uses a new KVP, PolicyAllowNativeShare (bool) with the default state as False.
    •  The Native share sheet feature has the following policy dependencies: 
      • Control Open In (PolicyAllowOpenIn KVP) - PolicyAllowOpenIn KVP is used when the PolicyAllowNativeShare KVP is not set with any value. If the value of PolicyAllowOpenIn is false, Native share sheet feature is deactivated.
      • Forward/Add Attachments (PolicyAllowAttachments KVP) - If Native share sheet is allowed and this policy is restricted, the user is informed that they are not allowed to share attachments when starting a share action for files and images. 
      • Prevent Paste In (SDK) - If Native share sheet is allowed and this policy is restricted, the user is informed that paste is not allowed, and they cannot share texts and links when starting a share action for texts and links. 
      • If both Forward/Add Attachments and Prevent Paste in (SDK) are restricted, then native sharing too is completely restricted.
  • iOS Calendar Widget

    • Pre-req: iOS 14 and later 
    • The widget displays upcoming events of a user. 
    • The widget has three sizes – small, medium, and large with variable information density.

    • If the Calendar Widget feature is enabled, users can view their events in a Workspace ONE Boxer Calendar Widget when the users have added the calendar widget to their home screens.
    • To enable this feature for managed devices, PolicyAllowCalendarWidget (bool) KVP must be added to the Workspace ONE UEM console and the value must be set to true.

  • Visual Scheduler Improvements

    • Change in date and time selection. 
      • Visual Scheduler uses the new date and time pickers, introduced in iOS 15.  
    • Monochromatic colors in Visual Scheduler. 
      • A user can activate this functionality by using the following setting: Workspace ONE Boxer -> Settings -> Calendar -> More -> VS monochromatic colors
      • When the functionality is activated, monochromatic colors override event colors for better visualization of the available time.

  • KVP for Item Operation sync for IRM templates

    • Pre-req: managed account on Exchange server - on-prem  
    • Pre-req: IRM enabled  
    • A new KVP, PolicyRefetchRMSTemplateUsingItemOperations (bool) is used. 
      • If the KVP value is set to True, Workspace ONE Boxer stores the IRM template in the Item Operations request. The KVP is set on an account level.  
    • If the IRM template is missing from the sync request from Workspace ONE Boxer, Workspace ONE Boxer tries to fetch the IRM template again using the Item Operations request. Until the request completes, the following occur: 
      • Workspace ONE Boxer sets the email body to nil and triggers Item Operation request. 
      • By default, Workspace ONE Boxer applies all IRM restrictions to emails (Reply, Reply All, Forward).
