Important Notes About This Release
SOTI MobiControl now offers granular permissions for Directory Services:
- View Directory Services: Allows users to view the existing Directory Service configurations
- Lookup Directory Users and Groups: Allows users to query a Directory Service configuration for users and user groups
Default installation of SOTI MobiControl grants the “Manage Directory Services” permission to the “MobiControl Administrators” group. We encourage you to review permissions after upgrading to this release.
SOTI MobiControl's minimum system requirements have been updated as of 15.2.0 to .NET Core 3.1, Windows Server 2016 and Microsoft SQL Server 2016 SP2 CU12.
Apple Platform Improvements
- SOTI MobiControl’s communication with Apple Push Notification Service (APNS) is redesigned to significantly improve the performance of Apple device check-ins.
- The whitelisting and blacklisting capabilities in the Application Run Control policy for iOS now allow you to restrict web clips on iOS devices.
- The Apple Push Notification Service (APNS) configuration in Global Settings now displays the APNS certificate serial number.
- To facilitate troubleshooting of managed apps on iOS devices, you can now remove an individual managed app from an iOS device.
