MD5 Checksum: d26ed9a5e25971b3588454cbe3d6d766

Upgrade Considerations

SOTI MobiControl's minimum system requirements were updated in 15.2.0 to .NET Core 3.1, Windows Server 2016 and Microsoft SQL Server 2016 SP2 CU12.

The SOTI MobiControl installer will warn on upgrade if it detects Profiles with the Webroot powered "Web Filter" and/or "Antivirus" device configurations. Future upgrades will not be allowed unless all "Web Filter" configurations are transitioned to "SOTI Surf", and all Android device agents are upgraded to v13.5 or higher to continue support for Antivirus.

Please note: We strongly recommend following the standard IT change control practices and testing of product upgrades in pre-production environments.

Contact SOTI's Professional Services and Support Team or visit the product documentation for information on proceeding with your upgrade.


  • Most SOTI MobiControl APIs now support these response data format types: application/xml and text/xml
  • The following REST APIs were added to Profile Assignment:
    • Add target devices and device groups to an existing profile
    • Remove target devices and device groups from an existing profile
