Go from 0 to IT hero with the Workspace ONE Activity Path, only on VMware TechZone.

Enhanced PPPC Payload for macOS

The PPPC payload for macOS now allows multiple Apple Event permissions per identifier. This means you can group all applicable preference permissions under a single parent Bundle ID or Path Identifier for a more streamlined management experience. From a functional perspective, the PPPC payload behaves the same as before. Additionally, you can surface details about the SIM currently installed in each iOS device using the new Mobile Country Code (MCC) and Mobile Network Code (MNC) keys. Once enabled, these details display on the Network tab of Device Details View to help you manage connectivity and/or integrate with mobile security partners.

Requirements: macOS 10.14+

Improved Network Payload for macOS

The network profile payload now supports multiple ethernet interfaces. Previously, Workspace ONE UEM targeted only the first active ethernet interface. This update allows you to target different 802.1x configurations to different interfaces. Alternatively, you can select ”Any Ethernet” to apply the configuration to any active ethernet adapter, regardless of adapter order.

New Factory Provisioning Wizard for Windows 10

A new, wizard-driven UI simplifies factory provisioning - creating both the configuration file and the PPKG in one simple step.

Improved Diagnostics with Remote Log Collection for Windows 10

Provides admins the ability to collect logs from managed Windows 10 devices without having to physically access the device. You can choose to collect Hub or System logs, which includes logs on Software Distribution, Provisioning Agent, Intelligent Hub, PC Refresh, MDM and System Event Logs, and other environment data. This allows you to quickly troubleshoot remotely. Possible use-cases include validating app or profile pushes, or even if the Enterprise Reset occurred successfully.

New Proxy Payload for Windows 10

This new payload enables you to configure a proxy on the device without using custom scripts or GPOs. Use this payload to configure a proxy server for ethernet and Wi-Fi connections on Windows 10.

Requirements: Windows 10 version 1709+


New Telemetry Settings in the Restrictions Payload Payload for Windows 10

Now, new telemetry settings in the Restrictions payload allow you to configure the level of data to send:

  • Security level sends security information related to connected user experience, Malicious Software Removal tool and Defender
  • Basic level sends security data in addition to basic device info including quality and apps compatibility and usage
  • Enhanced level also sends usage and performance information for Windows and apps
  • Full sends all data necessary to identify and resolve problems
Native Location Tracking Support for Windows 10

Now, with native location tracking support, you can view Windows 10 location information OMA-DM samples. This functionality adheres to all privacy settings, supports breadcrumb location tracking, and data sample scheduling.

Enterprise Reset for Windows 10

Enterprise Reset is a new device wipe option for Windows 10. When a device is corrupted or has malfunctioning applications, an Enterprise Reset restores a device to a Ready to Work state. This reset re-installs the Windows OS, but preserves user data, user accounts and managed applications. After the reset, the device re-syncs auto-deployed enterprise settings, policies, and apps and remains under Workspace ONE management. This means you can reset or refresh devices, without requiring re-doing the entire enrollment and onboarding process.

Requirements: Windows 10 version 1709+.

Flexara Integration for Windows 10

A new integration with Flexara means you can export applications directly from the Flexara AdminStudio Catalog to Workspace ONE UEM for distribution. This means you no longer have to manually repackage apps.
