Release Highlights

Importing Contacts via VCF

Administrators can now import contacts via a VCF file.

JavaScript File Operations

All basic File Operations are now supported by scripts, including creation, deletion, copying, renaming, listing directories, and reading and writing text files.

Expanded Common Text Formats

We now support INI and XML formats, in addition to JSON. The addition of these formats opens new opportunities to build more powerful scripts, such as triggering device relocation.

Network Information Collection

Network information such as Wi-Fi SSID, active network, and available network can now be collected via script. This includes specific actionable details about the connections such as IP addresses and bandwidth.

Additional Device Information

Additional device information such as IMEI, MEID, and access to airplane mode are now accessible via JavaScript.

Resolved Issues

MCMR-24271 Devices were incorrectly showing a certificate error when enrolling Honeywell devices via mcsetup.ini
MCMR-26536 After a soft reset, the agent incorrectly scanned the entire SD card for Mcsetup.ini instead of just configuration files, which resulted in very long launch times
MCMR-26764 Feature control policies were not consistently enforced on Xioami devices
