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 user-context commands (e.g. user-context profile/apps, app list sample command) and only provide device with device-context commands.
  • There was an issue identified that enrollment type of the device is not reset upon unenrollment. On re-enrollment of a device which was previously AAD enrolled (e.g. Windows OOBE), even if the new enrollment flow is non-AAD, device remains marked as AAD enrolled.
  • This results in devices not able to consume user-context commands. User specific apps and profiles will remain in-queue and not deployed to the device.
  • Impacting UEM 21.05
  • This issue is resolved in Workspace ONE UEM 2203. In addition to this, the fix is available as a patch for the following versions;
  • 21.11.0.11 and above
  • 22.9.0.22 and above

Unable to enroll iOS 16 beta and iPadOS 16 beta in Workspace ONE UEM (88735)

  • When attempting an MDM enrollment on iOS 16 beta or iPadOS 16 beta, the enrollment will fail while installing the MDM profile with an error message that states "Profile Installation Failed". Please see the screenshot in the KB. 
  • The iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 beta versions need to be seeded into the UEM environment in order for enrollment to succeed.
  • For SaaS customers: new versions of iOS and iPadOS will be seeded automatically.
  • For On Premise customers: please use the latest seed script available here to update your environment.
