19 October 2021 by VMware 0 Comments

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 in 2109 and 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

  • Assigning the default SDK profile to your iOS Intelligent Hub just got easier.
    You no longer have to manually assign the default SDK profile to your iOS Intelligent Hub as Workspace ONE UEM assigns it for you. This improvement resolves several issues such as inconsistent push messages from the UEM console, SDK profiles stuck in a queued state, difficulties enrolling devices through the Intelligent Hub for iOS, and inconsistencies with enrollment prompts. The settings for the Intelligent Hub and the default SDK profile can be found in the Workspace ONE UEM console under Groups & Settings > All Settings > Devices & Users > Apple Apple iOS > Intelligent Hub Settings.
  • We’ve cleaned up the list of supported Launcher versions.
    We have now discontinued support for Workspace ONE Launcher v1 and v2. You will no longer be able to select these versions in the drop-down menu under Service Applications. To access all the new features, you must upgrade your Workspace ONE Launcher to the latest version. For more information, see VMware Workspace ONE Launcher Version Information
  • Maximize your search results with wildcards in the UEM global search.
    You can now use asterisk wildcards in your global searches to boost your search results. For more information, see Global Search.
  • Workspace ONE UEM and Workspace ONE Access no longer share configurations for SaaS Apps, Access Policies, and Virtual Apps. You can easily find these app management features in the Workspace ONE Access console. For more information, see Workspace ONE Access documentation
  • We’ve now restored the UEM Monitor link to access Workspace ONE Intelligence.
    If you have a Cloud Services account, you can now access Workspace ONE Intelligence through the Monitor button on the main menu. For more information, see Console Monitor.
  • Control certificate revocation based on certificate sampling.
    You can determine when to revoke device certificates if they are missing from the sample. If you choose to disable the setting, Workspace ONE UEM does not revoke certificates from devices whose certificates are missing from the sample. Moreover, manual revocation and revocation during un-enrolment will continue to work even if the setting is deactivated.
  • Coming Soon – Workspace ONE UEM support for Linux-based devices. 
    We are eager to get this new feature to you but will be enabling it in phases to ensure successful deployments. You can use this feature in the coming months as we roll it out to SaaS environments globally. When it is available, you will notice changes to your user interface, such as the addition of Linux as a platform in filters, smart groups, and settings. You will also have the option to select Linux when creating profiles in Workspace ONE UEM. In the coming weeks, we will announce the release of the corresponding Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Linux, along with all of the documentation necessary to assist you in utilizing this exciting new offering from the Workspace ONE team.
  • We've set the new data-driven user interface for Android and tvOS as the default profile experience.
    You can now easily and quickly configure and deploy Android and tvOS profiles using the new DDUI profile user experience. This new data-driven model includes new payload layouts, search capabilities, and profile summaries. The new data driven UI framework enables VMware to deliver new profile features faster. For information specific to Android profiles, see How to Configure Android Profiles and for Apple tvOS profiles, see Apple tvOS Profiles.
  • We've enhanced SafetyNet Attestation with Hardware_Backed check
    You can now choose which evaluation types from SafetyNet Attestation are trusted as part of Android Compromised Detection. For more information, see the topic Apps / Settings and Policies / Security Policies.

Windows

  • Configure your Windows 10 devices using the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager (DEM) integration with Workspace ONE UEM.
    We have now integrated DEM with Workspace ONE UEM, allowing you to deploy a DEM config profile to your managed Windows Desktop (Windows 10) devices using UEM. To use the DEM profile, install the DEM Management Console to create DEM config files and deploy the DEM FlexEngine to managed devices to apply the DEM config files. You can find the landing page for this integration in Workspace ONE UEM, by navigating to Groups & Settings > Configurations > Dynamic Environment Manager. The profile can be found in Workspace ONE UEM under Resources > Profiles & Baselines > Profiles > Add > Add Profile > Windows > Windows Desktop > Device Profile. For more information, see the Profiles for Windows Desktop topic and DEM documentation.
  • We've improved the device refresh mechanism for Windows Desktop.
    When you refresh and re-enroll previously enrolled devices in Workspace ONE UEM, the original device record is reused in the Workspace ONE UEM console. The reuse of the original device record eliminates the need for duplicate records in the console. This enhancement is applicable to physical devices but not to virtual machines.
  • We’ve made performance improvements when querying Windows Desktop devices for Windows Updates metadata.
