BlackBerry Unified Endpoint Management, UEM in het kort, kan gezien worden als de verdere ontwikkeling en samenvoeging van zowel BlackBerry Enterprise Server als Good Control MDM/MAM. Het product richt zich op mdm, het beheren van devices, en mam, het beheren van applicaties op deze devices. Daarnaast kan het worden geïntegreerd met andere producten om de functionaliteit uit te breiden, zoals BlackBerry Share, BlackBerry Workspaces en BlackBerry 2FA. Eerder deze maand is BlackBerry UEM 12.7.2 verschenen, dat ook als 12.7 MR2 wordt genummerd, de lijst met vernieuwingen ziet er als volgt uit:
What's new in BlackBerry UEM version 12.7 MR2
Support for app-based PKI solutions
Added support for app-based PKI solutions, such as Purebred, which can enroll certificates for BlackBerry Dynamics apps. You can now install the PKI app on devices and allow the latest versions of BlackBerry Dynamics apps, such as BlackBerry Work and BlackBerry Access, to use certificates enrolled through the PKI app. This option is supported only for iOS devices.
Multiple Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) account
Added support for using multiple DEP accounts. If you have upgraded to BlackBerry UEM 12.7 MR2 and want to configure multiple DEP accounts, you must enable the feature. If you have installed BlackBerry UEM for the first time, the feature is enabled by default.
Google account user management
New controls prevent users from adding additional accounts in the Android workspace.
Several changes have been made to the Android activation experience including more robust explanation about password requirements, the BlackBerry UEM Client is locked into the foreground during activation, and on several screens the back button has been removed.
Fixed issues in BlackBerry UEM 12.7 MR2
User and device management fixed issues
Management console fixed issues
- When a device that has an associated managed Google account was activated, BlackBerry UEM reconciled all apps applicable to the device and published them to Google Play. (JI 2226820)
- On a Samsung KNOX device, after an administrator assigned an app with the disposition set to "Optional" to a device, the user could not install the app on the device. (JI 2224020)
- Wi-Fi profiles with proxy settings were not applied to devices running Android 8.0 or later that were activated with MDM controls or User privacy. If a device with one of these activation types was upgraded to Android 8.0 or later, the Wi-Fi profile was removed from the device. (JI 2221778)
- A deadlock exception might have occurred in the BlackBerry UEM Core log file when you deactivated a device running Android 8.0 or later and then used a different activation type to reactivate the device. (JI 2221074)
- On a Samsung KNOX device, apps that were hosted by BlackBerry UEM did not display in the Google Play store in the work space. (JI 2218089)
BlackBerry UEM API fixed issues
- An error displayed when you tried to view a user's details. (JI 2243217)
- You couldn't send an activation email that contained a QR code to a user. (JI 2228448)
- If you activated a device using the MDM controls activation type and then deactivated the device and reactivated it using the apps only activation type, the device might have displayed twice on the Managed devices page. (JI 2223412)
- When you saved a network usage profile without making any changes to it, the values that you set in the Allow data roaming and Allow cellular data fields might have changed. (JI 2221691)
- If you had multiple Microsoft Active Directory connections configured and you entered an incorrect password when you logged in to the console, BlackBerry UEM attempted to communicate with all of the Microsoft Active Directory connections. This might have caused you to be locked out of your Microsoft Active Directory account if you had set the number of unsuccessful log in attempts to a small number. (JI 2221038)
- For devices that used BlackBerry Dynamics and had been assigned a Gatekeeping profile, on the device tab the Gatekeeping profile might have displayed a status of “Connection pending.” (JI 2207296)
- In the BlackBerry Dynamics profile, if you selected the “Do not allow personal information” option, personal information such as the user’s first and last names were allowed in a password for BlackBerry Dynamics apps. (JI 2206010)
- The BlackBerry Web Services API call GetLicenseInfoRequest did not return the number of available licenses or the number of licenses used. (JI 2194649)
