Weekly highlight: 

 

AAPP-13137 - Certificates may be revoked on cellular iOS devices when the device is rebooted and not yet first unlocked (87496)

  • iOS cellular devices may incorrectly omit certificates from Certificate List samples in certain scenarios. As a result, Workspace ONE UEM may revoke the affected certificate(s) based on the configured certificate revocation grace period.
  • Upon revocation of the certificate under Device Details > More > Troubleshooting > Event log administrator may observe the event shown in the KB.
  • This occurs on:
  • Cellular iOS devices after a reboot and before first unlock
  • All supported Workspace ONE UEM versionsThis occurs on:
  • When a cellular iOS device is rebooted (e.g. during an OS update) and has not been unlocked for the first time, the device may respond to any query for the certificate list with an empty certificate list. This occurs even if there are valid certificates installed on the device. After a first unlock, the device will respond normally with its full certificate list.
  • This only occurs for cellular iOS devices because Wi-Fi-only iOS devices cannot connect to Wi-Fi after a reboot without the device being unlocked. 
  • Workspace ONE UEM currently revokes device certificates under the following circumstances to clean-up any undesired certificates on the target device.
    1. Enterprise wipe / Device wipe / Delete device / Un-enrollment  
    2. Profile removal 
    3. Manual revocation of the certificate from console 
    4. Absence of a certificate during a regular check-in/sample

VMware Workspace ONE Access - Register FIDO2 Device Currently Not Supported on Safari Web Browser (87500)

  • Due to a recent change by Apple, Workspace ONE Access currently does not support registering a FIDO2 security key device on all version of the Safari web browser for the FIDO2 authentication method. A user attempt to register a FIDO2 device on Safari will result in an unresponsive FIDO2 enrollment login page.
  • This resource provides a workaround for a known issue registering a new FIDO2 security key device on the Safari web browser.
  • A recent Apple update to Safari's implementation of the WebAuthn API is incompatible with Workspace ONE Access FIDO2 registration.
  • KB: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/87500?lang=en_US

 

Workspace ONE Access 20.10 OnPrem : Resolution to Increased loading times of the Catalog (87494)

  • Issues while loading of the catalog and occurrence of "com.hazelcast.client.HazelcastClientNotActiveException" exceptions in catalog-portal logs (for on-premises customers of Hub Services only)
  • This article provides information for on-premises Customers of Access and Hub Services to fix an issue with the Hub Catalog taking a significant amount of time to load.
  • Hazelcast client threads running within catalog-portal application acquire locks with indefinite lease time. If such threads do not release the locks (in case of any errors), the locks thus acquired by the threads are not auto-released, which blocks remaining threads that might be waiting to acquire the same lock.
  • Enable Hazelcast client threads running within catalog-portal application to acquire locks with pre-defined lease time, so that such locks are auto-released after the expiration of the lease time. This will enable other waiting threads to acquire the locks.
  • The fix has been provided and is available as a hotfix for on-premise customers https://resources.workspaceone.com/view/h6vnr2hq4d35kghhlwpb/  
  • Please check https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/87494?lang=en_US for more information.

    • Upon Android 13’s release (expected in Q3 2022), new releases of Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub, Assist, and Launcher will no longer support Android 5.0.x. 
    • Upon Android 14’s release (expected in Q3 2023), new releases of Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub, Assist, and Launcher will no longer support Android 5.1.x. 
  • Customers should upgrade their Android devices to meet the minimum operating system requirements to utilize subsequent Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub, Assist, and Launcher releases. After upgrading the Android OS:
    • The Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub can be updated through the Google Play Store.
