What's New in the Release Notes

VMware Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Linux Release Notes describes the new features and enhancements in each release. This page contains a summary of the new capabilities, issues that have been resolved, and known issues that have been reported in each release over the last 12 months.

Workspace Intelligent Hub for Linux 23.10 - December 2023

New Features

  • We enabled the following commands:

    • Device Wipe – In addition to Enterprise Wipe which unenrolls, uninstalls the Hub, and removes any content pushed down with Workspace ONE UEM, Device Wipe provides a more extensive wipe, typically in response to a lost or stolen device. Device Wipe emulates a factory reset on the Linux device when invoked by the admin. This command removes apps, users, the user’s files/data, Wi-Fi connections, and other items to make the device unusable, requiring a new install of Linux.

    • Device Reboot – This command reproduces the effect of powering the device off and on again.

  • Added a symbolic link to ws1HubUtil so that the device side user no longer needs to change directory in order to execute.

  • We removed the sudo requirement in ws1HubUtil for status and version commands.

  • Now, ws1HubUtil explicitly checks for the commands that require sudo, providing more security and better error handling.

Workspace Intelligent Hub for Linux 23.04.1 - May 2023

New Features

  • Introduced new WS1HubtUtil command line options.

    Added more device side command line options to improve troubleshooting and enhance end user visibility.

  • Added Root Cert Deployment to the Browser Cert Store.

    Now, when using Network Security Services (NSS) libraries, Workspace ONE UEM writes a root cert to Linux devices using Firefox and Chromium based browsers. NSS libraries are a prerequisite. Necessary components are automatically installed when using the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub installer.

  • Now, private keys are encrypted by default

    When private keys are generated for Linux devices, they will be AES256 encrypted by default using the password configured in the certificate.

  • Enabled the Device Lock command.

    Use this command to lock a selected device, making it unusable until it's unlocked. Any signed in user must reauthenticate. If the user's credentials are valid, then they can log in.

    Note: This feature requires Workspace ONE UEM 2304. Workspace ONE UEM 2304 is scheduled for release early summer 2023.

Minimum Requirements

  • The following are the Minimum Requirements for Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Linux.

    • Workspace ONE UEM 2206 running in a shared SaaS environment.
