Get unmanaged app samples with no user session.Devices that run without a user logged in will now return app samples to properly reflect all the software installed on a PC. Previously, app samples were only sent when a user was logged in, so changes to app inventory might not be accurate.
Want a simpler way to manage zero-touch Android devices? We have a solution for you!You can now navigate to a separate Google portal for managing zero-touch devices. In the Google portal, users create and edit EMM configurations, browse devices, and manage portal access.

For more information, see Erase All Content and Settings (EACS).
Removing an app’s System Extension profile just got easier!You can now remove an app's system extension without requiring local administrator authentication. With macOS 12, a new key feature called RemovableSystemExtension is introduced, which allows the MDM administrator to remove an app's system extensions.
We have improved the Workflow step messages.For troubleshooting purposes, we have enhanced the workflow details page and the workflow messages presented per step on the device details. The error messages offer information regarding the cause and components of the error. Click the hyperlink to see a detailed message model for error messages that exceed the word limit.
Using Android Delegated Scope Management through Custom Settings (89115)
With Intelligent Hub 22.07, you can now push a Custom Settings profile to delegate certain administrative permissions to other applications on Android devices. Workspace ONE UEM grants other applications access to a subset of the Android DevicePolicyManager API by delegating one or more management scopes. This capability is supported in all Android Management Modes - Work Profile, Work Managed, and Corporate Owned Personally Enabled (COPE).
See KB for current management scopes and custom payload examples.

Recommended practices when uploading large-size applications in Workspace ONE UEM Console (89076)
In adoption of modern management and software distribution, the team has noticed an increase of size for in-house application/software, new sets of challenges are presented when trying to upload large application files to Workspace ONE UEM Console. This article will discuss the settings/configs for SaaS Workspace ONE UEM console.
As of Workspace ONE UEM 2204, Internal App File Upload is broken down into two parts:
Chunk Upload Phase:
During this phase, your browser will break the file into chunks (10MB each) and send a ChunkUpload request to UEM console per chunk.
This is where you see the upload percentage bar moving.
Blob Upload Phase:
Once reaching 100%, there are some additional steps on the backend to complete the full upload
UEM console will first combine the chunks and create a local cache on Console Server.
UEM console will then copy the cache file to corresponding File Storage Server and Origin Server to storage and CDN usage.
VMware Workspace ONE UEM New Control Plane SaaS Deployment Schedule (86243) Workspace ONE UEM has undergone a complete re-architecture to modernize the platform using microservices and containers to enable increased scalability and performance and increase the rate of innovation. Now after having conducted significant and careful testing, these architecture updates, including a new control plane, will be deployed to UEM SaaS environments over the next several weeks, with options available to on-premise customers after this roll-out (Later in 2022).
