Announcing General Availability of VMware Workspace ONE UEM Console 2111 - Full Installer

  • VMware Workspace ONE UEM Console 2111 is GA as of January 13, 2022 and available for on-premise and Dedicated SaaS customers:

  • What's New?

  • Stay informed with our brand new console banner notifications.
    With the new console banner notifications that appear across the top of the UEM console, you can stay updated on maintenance issues, upgrades, outages, and product announcements.

  • We've made a few enhancements to the Freestyle Orchestrator.

  • Freestyle has been promoted from technical preview to limited availability for SaaS customers. The following improvements to Freestyle Orchestrator have been made in this release.
    We have added a fast lane delivery of workflows to small device fleets. That is, workflows being deployed to <2000 devices, the devices will be notified immediately upon publishing.
    Workflows in Windows can be retrieved by devices during device check-in even when no user is logged in. This behavior requires Windows Hub 21.11.
    Workflow statuses will now be reported more frequently by devices to increase visibility to administrators, and this requires Windows Hub 21.11.
    We have made changes to the Hub catalog and assignment statuses behavior when an app is assigned both from workflows and directly.
    Additionally, admins can now add a change log to workflows and force them to execute.

  • We’ve made check-in check-out more flexible by introducing guest sessions for Launcher
    You can now designate a second Launcher profile as a Guest Session profile and enable users to skip directory authentication and quickly access installed applications.

  • Silently install your required App Store apps
    With iOS 15.1, you can set any single App Store app as a required app during enrollment. When installing the app using Workspace One UEM or Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub, the app deploys silently, even on unsupervised devices.

  • We've added support for SCEP Certificate Deployment
    From a Chrome User or Device Network (or Credentials) profile, you can now choose a SCEP certificate authority and template when adding a template-based certificate.

Deprecating the Legacy Workspace ONE Web Experience (86450)

  • The Workspace ONE experience on a Web Browser has been updated in the last few years to align with Hub Experience on other platforms (iOS, Android, Windows and macOS). Approximately 98.5% of our customers are currently utilizing the new and improved Hub Experience.

  • Functionality Affected

    • Workspace ONE experience using a Web Browser

  • Legacy Workspace ONE Experience DeprecationWhen we had originally introduced the newer design, to prevent disruption to our customer’s end users, we had provided an option for customers to turn on this new experience at their own pace.

  • The option to enable the new and improved Hub Experience can be accessed from within the Hub Services Admin Console > Customization page by enabling the Hub Browser Experience. See screenshot in KB.

  • For customers that are still on the legacy experience, we’d like to announce that the new Hub Browser Experience will be enabled by default on Aug 11, 2022. This is in line with our effort to deprecate the legacy Workspace ONE app (which has marked for End of Life since Aug 11, 2021 and will reach End of Life on Aug 11, 2022) and similar legacy experiences. 

  • NOTE: On Aug 11, 2022 the previously available option to toggle the experience will also become unavailable.

  • We encourage customers to start leveraging the new Experience as early as possible.

  • Please find more information in KB https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/86450?lang=en_US and contact your TAM/CSM/SE in case of questions.

    • Freestyle

    • Devices > Legacy Android Migration

    • Devices > Profiles & Resources > Baselines

    • Devices > Sensors

    • Content > Mobile Flows

    • Groups & Settings > Configurations

    • Resources > Apps > Native > Assign App

    • Devices > Lifecycle > Wipe Log (as of version 21.11)

    • Accounts > Users > Batch Status (as of version 21.11)

    • Accounts > Administrators > System Activity > Login History(as of version 21.11)

    • Monitor > Reports and Analytics > Exports (as of version 21.11)

    • Monitor > Admin Panel (as of version 22.01)

  • Affected Version: Workspace ONE UEM 2007 

  • Some pages in the Workspace ONE UEM console have been migrated to a new UI framework that requires a specific set of admin permissions to view. Navigating to these pages without the proper permissions will result in the page not loading and a blank screen. By default, most system roles will already have these required permissions, but custom roles may not.
