  • Samsung ELM License Key Deprecation (88179)
  • To access Samsung Knox Platform for Enterprise (KPE) Standard capabilities, Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub activates a Samsung ELM license on every Samsung Android Work Managed device. 
  • Samsung has migrated to a new, more secure license key format, called KPE Standard.  The KPE Standard key replaces the ELM key, and the ELM key will be decommissioned on December 1, 2022.
  • When the ELM key is decommissioned on December 1, 2022, new activations of this key will fail. This means any devices enrolling into work managed mode with an older version of Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub will fail enrollment. Existing/currently enrolled devices will not be impacted. Devices enrolling into Work Profile or COPE modes are also not impacted.
  • In an upcoming version of Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub, the ELM key will be replaced with a KPE Standard key. Customers must use this upcoming version after December 1 to enroll Samsung devices.
  • Customers should monitor Hub release notes regarding this change. This article will also be updated with the exact version when that is determined.
  • KB-Reference: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/88179?lang=en_US
  • VMware Horizon on Oracle Cloud VMware Solution (OCVS) Support (88202)
  • Starting with Horizon 2006 on the Horizon 8 release train or Horizon 7.13 on the Horizon 7 release train, Horizon can be deployed on Oracle Cloud VMware Solution (OCVS).
  • This article discusses the support details feature parity between Horizon on-premise and Horizon on OCVS.
  • Feature Parity: The same Horizon versions support both on-premise deployment as well as deployment on OCVS. 
  • The two tables in the KB list features that are available on-premise but not available OCVS. Any Horizon feature not listed in the table below can be assumed to be supported.

  • ESC-31150 : Issue with accessing Face ID on iPad with two apps simultaneously used in split screen mode (88112)
  • VMware apps enrolled on iPad with biometric auth enabled in SDK, are facing issues with authenticating using Face ID when the two apps are simultaneously used in split-screen mode
  • The KB details the scenario when the issue occurs and why it’s observed.
    1. Install and Enroll Workspace ONE apps on iPad with Face ID enabled.
    2. Enable with SDK setting to use Biometric (Face ID).
    3. Open two apps (Boxer/Content) > launch both the apps split-screen mode.
    4. Navigate to Home screen > wait until SDK authentication session times out for Workspace ONE Apps. Leave in split-screen. 
    5. Reopen VMware Boxer/Content.
  • Expected Result: FaceID should be accepted and both apps authenticate without passcode or username/password authentication
  • Actual Result: Error dialogue window is shown 
  • his issue is seen from the iOS APIs. We have simulated the exact same behaviour with sample apps without WS1 SDK. The iOS returns an error “errSecAuthFailed” when trying to authenticate two apps simultaneously using Face ID authentication.

  • CRSVC-27688 – Missing Intermediate certificate causing failure in certificate issuance (88223)
  • The Workspace ONE team has identified an issue in storing the certificate chain in the database. When issue happens, you will see the below error under the ‘Device > More> Troubleshooting > Event Data’ when the profile delivery fails.
  • Workspace ONE UEM 2111
  • When storing the certificate chain, we were not processing the complete chain, due to which the validation was failing, resulting in the failure of the delivery of the profile. As part of the fix, we are validating the complete chain of certificates, including the intermediate.
  • The profile will fail to deliver the certificates to the device resulting in the device being unable to perform the needed action using that certificate. For example, it may fail to connect to Wi-Fi or perform mobile SSO.
  • This issue is resolved in a future console version. In addition to this, the fix is available as a patch for the following versions:
    • UEM 2111
    • UEM 2203
