Weekly highlight: 

 

Changes to user set app passcodes in Workspace ONE Boxer 22.02 for iOS (87592)

  • With the introduction of SAML Authentication support, Boxer will always start the Workspace ONE SDK on launch and will not display app passcode screens when using the standalone enrollment workflow. User passcodes for Boxer will now be managed from the SDK settings page. 
  • Impact:
    • Workspace ONE Administrator
    • Passcode policies set by administrators are not affected by this change
      Note: We highly encourage administrators to set SDK level app passcode policies for end-users as a best practice In the near future we will be deprecating the support of end-user enabled passcodes.
    • Passcode policies are now managed on the SDK settings page (Groups & Settings > All Settings > Apps Settings and Policies > Security Policies > Authentication Type)
  • End-User
    • Users who already have set an app passcode in environments without a Workspace ONE SDK passcode policy set, will be able to continue using the passcode until the device is reenrolled or if the app is reinstalled
    • Users who have already enrolled through using the standalone enrollment workflow, where a Workspace ONE SDK passcode policy is set, will not be affected by the change

Note: This is currently not supported on all platforms. This will be available on the Hub portal in a browser, iOS version 21.01, Android version 22.01, and macOS version 22.01.

Workspace ONE Hub Services Notification Process Library

If you are building custom workflows in Workspace ONE Experience Workflows, we’ve added a process library that will make things easier! You can now import this new Hub Services Notification Process Library to use either as an abstraction or a starting template for building the logic to send a notification to the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub app.

Integration Pack Test Connection

We’ve added an in-build process to our existing out-of-the-box integration packs for admins to perform a test connection and ensure the configurations are correct.

Zoom Recording Sharing Integration Pack for Experience Workflows

Hub Services customers with Workspace ONE Experience Workflows enabled can configure an integration with Zoom and Office 365 to notify Zoom meeting hosts when their Zoom recording is available. The notification card will also provide a one-click option to share the recording via the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub app to the attendees of the Zoom meeting.

SAML Authentication support

  • Pre-req: managed account on Exchange server - On-Prem or Office 365
  • This feature allows faster authentication process and less expectation of the user to remember multiple login credentials.
  • With the introduction of this feature, app passcode settings will need to be updated in Workspace ONE UEM. You can find more information about the changes in our knowledge base.

Sign-in needed alert message

  • This feature brings better awareness to the user when an Active Directory password expiration or change occurs.
  • An alert message pops up when Boxer is being opened and notifies the user that he/she needs to re-enter his/her credentials
  • The user can directly be redirected to the authentication screen and re-enter his/her credentials
  • If the user chooses to neglect the alert, he/she would be still able to use
  • Boxer will preview previous emails, calendar events, and contacts but wouldn’t be able to execute actions connected with server operations

Create and edit event screens improvements

  • Improvements in the user experience when the end time/date of an event is being set before the start time/date
  • Custom reminders for an event can be created
