                    Week 24 -  2022             Weekly highlight:   [Resolved] AMST-34805: Workspace ONE UEM User-Context commands remain queued for certain re-enrolled Windows Devices (88723) There are two types of MDM enrollment for Windows devices: AAD enrolled (e.g. Windows OOBE) Non-AAD enrolled (regular MDM enrollment) For AAD Enrolled devices, during device check-in, the check-in request contains an unique token for the Device Services (DS) to identify the user identity. DS will only pass user-context commands to the device if current login user matches the associated AAD user record in UEM console. For Non-AAD Enrolled devices, check-in request will not include the aforementioned token and only indicate check-in context through an additional param: maintenance mode: check-in happens when there is an active enrolled user login. machine mode:  check-in happens in the System context and the system does not have access to the user's profile. In this scenario, UEM will hold off

Backend

WS1 Access Connector (Cloud Only)

22.05

Connector Support for Horizon Cloud Service on Microsoft Azure with Single-Pod Broker (Workspace ONE Access Cloud only)

The 22.05 release of the Workspace ONE Access Connector will include support for integrating with Horizon Cloud Service on Microsoft Azure with Single-Pod Broker and Horizon Cloud Service on IBM Cloud. This will allow for the legacy connectors that are used for virtual apps to be migrated from version 19.03 or 19.03.0.1 to version 22.05 connector. Both directories and virtual apps collections must be migrated together during this one-time process.

FIPS Mode Support for the Connector (Workspace ONE Access Cloud only)

The 22.05 Workspace ONE Access Connector will have an option to enable FIPS mode during installation. FIPS mode will set the connector to run with data and encryption that is secure at a level of compliance encouraged by the United States government. The algorithms used are FIPS 140-2 compliant algorithms.

Workspace ONE Access Connectors with FIPS mode enabled will not support integrating with Citrix, Horizon, Horizon Cloud Service on Microsoft Azure with Single-Pod Broker, or Horizon Cloud Service on IBM Cloud. A Workspace ONE Access Connector with FIPS mode enabled will support integrating virtual apps that are running in Horizon Cloud Service on Microsoft Azure with Universal Broker.

Note:

  • The FIPS mode option is not available when you upgrade to a 22.05 connector. The option to enable FIPS mode is supported only in new connector installations.
  • If you enable FIPS mode in the connector, to disable FIPS mode, you must reinstall the connector.

Time-based One-Time Password (TOTP) support for RFC 6238 Compliant Authenticator Apps*

Workspace ONE Access now supports a new authentication method ‘Authenticator App’ to enhance its native MFA capabilities. This MFA is ideal for users with unmanaged devices, can be used offline, and requires no collection of personal identifying information (PII). Users can leverage any authenticator app of their choice–such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Okta Verify, Authy, 1Password–that follows the time-based one-time passcode (TOTP) standards as defined in RFC 6238 on their own device. TOTP client support will be available on the Intelligent Hub iOS and Android App later this year in Q3. See Configure an Authenticator App with Two-Factor Authentication for configuration instructions.

BitLocker and BitLocker to Go Best Practices and Considerations (88620)

  • BitLocker and BitLocker to Go (BL2Go) are technologies designed to encrypt data and provide recovery capabilities as needed in the UEM console. There are some situations where changing GPO settings might conflict with BitLocker settings, resulting in unexpected results. Other best practices can be followed to ensure the highest recovery capabilities for hardware issues or forgotten passwords.
  • This article is intended to track recent issues identified with BitLocker and BL2Go and help guide you on the best experience with these technologies.
