We are pleased to announce the general availability of App Portal / App Broker 2023 R1 release.
App Portal/App Broker 2023 R1 includes the following features and improvements.
Intune Microsoft 365 App support for Windows 10 devices
We have added the support for Microsoft 365 App for deploying software to Windows 10 devices using Microsoft Intune - a unified endpoint management tool along with support for Microsoft Windows (Win32) Apps and Windows Line of Business Apps (.msi & .msix) app type respectively.
ServiceNow integration capabilities that exist in the product are supported for Microsoft 365 app also.
Upgrade WebExtension to support Manifest v3
As part of this release, we have aligned and upgraded our WebExtension discovery method to support the latest Manifest version 3 from version 2 so that customers will get the benefits of security, privacy, and performance improvements respectively.
WebExtension is default and standard discovery method, and which is reliable, consistent in detecting the device name.
Ability to rerun failed uninstalls via Reclamation Alerts
Today customers were having difficulty detecting the failed uninstallation of software when triggered via automated reclamation alerts. Since, all the reclamation alerts were successful irrespective of failed or successful uninstallation of software.
We have now introduced the ability to detect failed uninstallations and rerun the reclamation alerts in intervals to ensure the software is uninstalled and this will avoid the manual intervention of rerunning the reclamation alerts.
Support modern authentication to access Jamf Pro API
Jamf has announced plans to discontinue the support for Basic authentication for the Classic API in an upcoming release of Jamf Pro.
In line with these changes and as part of our continued commitment to support key vendors such as Jamf, we are supporting the authentication via the Bearer Token.
Administrators can now configure the connection to Jamf Pro using the Bearer token authentication (if planning to use Jamf Pro v10.35.0 or later version) and can retain the Basic authentication (if planning to use Jamf Pro v10.34.0 or earlier version).
Support modern authentication for Flexible Approval
Microsoft have announced plans to discontinue the support for Basic Authentication for Exchange Online and are recommending that all new and existing customers now use a Modern Authentication method.
In line with these changes, and as part of our continued commitment to support key vendors such as Microsoft, we have added OAuth 2.0 support for Flexible Approval feature in addition to the existing Basic Authentication support.
This release also includes the support for the newer Utah version of ServiceNow.
