DEP Automation and Other Improvements on December 14th, 2018

Updated on July 1st, 2021

DEP automation and user assignment

We have implemented improvements to the management of Apple Device enrollment program devices.

  • The list of DEP devices is now synced automatically from Apple DEP in 12-hour intervals. This scheduled update is limited to Premium plan sites
  • DEP devices can be assigned to users from the DEP devices list by using the "Assign devices" action. This is available to all sites
  • Admins can configure the DEP enrollment profile to be assigned automatically to newly discovered devices. This, together with the scheduled device updates, offers automatic DEP assignments without the admin's manual work. This setting is also used when the device list is updated manually from Miradore Online
  • Admins can choose to save the date from DEP information as the device's purchase date. Please note that the date is the one when device is assigned to this site in Apple's portal.

The last two settings can be configured in enrollment profile settings. Automatic assignment can also be limited to cases when the device has been assigned to a user or device is found from the list of imported device identifiers (serial numbers)


Other improvements

  • The serial number column has been added to the Devices list. This is by default hidden but can be shown from the column selection menu.
  • Better handling of Android enterprise errors when a user has been assigned too many devices
  • The status of the user has been added to API
  • Changed VPP configuration wizard to direct admin to Apple's business manager in addition to old Volume purchasing program portal
  • Better management for network errors when enrolling Android devices

Old Android client support removed

We have removed support for Android clients older than version 2.3.0 (released at the end of 2015). We have earlier informed customers having these old devices about this change, and gave a few more months time to upgrade old clients. To have those devices managed again, update the new Miradore Online Client in devices.
