Citrix Endpoint Management

What’s new

A goal of Citrix is to deliver new features and product updates to Endpoint Management customers when they are available. New releases provide more value, so there’s no reason to delay updates.

  • Rolling updates to Endpoint Management release approximately every two weeks.
  • These updates don’t result in any downtime for your instance or device users.
  • Not every release has new features and some updates include fixes and performance enhancements.

To you, the customer, this process is transparent. We apply initial updates to Citrix internal sites only, and then to customer environments gradually. Delivering updates incrementally in waves helps to ensure product quality and to maximize availability.

You also receive Endpoint Management updates and communications directly from the Endpoint Management Cloud Operations Team. Those updates keep you current with new features, known issues, fixed issues, and so on.

For more details, including cloud scale and service availability, see the Endpoint Management Service Level Agreement. To monitor service interruptions and scheduled maintenance, see the Service Health Dashboard.

Continued support for the Classic policies deprecated from Citrix ADC

Citrix recently announced the deprecation of some Classic policy based features starting with Citrix ADC 12.0 build 56.20. The Citrix ADC deprecation notices have no impact to existing Endpoint Management integrations with Citrix Gateway. Citrix Endpoint Management continues to support the Classic policies and no action is needed.

Migration of your AutoDiscovery service records

As of April 1, 2021, Citrix Cloud hosts the AutoDiscovery service. The new AutoDiscovery service provides all existing features, such as enrollment verification, email based URL discovery, certificate pinning, and other benefits for Citrix Workspace customers.

Citrix migrates all current AutoDiscovery service records without a disruption in service. Starting on March 15, 2021, you can only edit existing AutoDiscovery service configurations on the legacy site. To create records, go to https://adsui.cloud.com (commercial) or https://adsui.cem.cloud.us/ (government).

The new AutoDiscovery service in Citrix Cloud requires the latest version of Secure Hub:

  • For iOS, Secure Hub version 21.1.0 or later
  • For Android, Secure Hub version 21.2.1 or later

Devices running on earlier versions of Secure Hub might experience interruptions in service.

To access the new AutoDiscovery service, you must have a Citrix Cloud account. If you don’t have an account, see Sign up for Citrix Cloud.

Before upgrading endpoints to iOS 14.5

Citrix recommends that before upgrading any endpoint to iOS 14.5, you perform the following actions to mitigate app crashes:

  • Upgrade Citrix Secure Mail and Secure Web to 21.2.X or higher. See Upgrade MDX or enterprise apps.
  • If you use the MDX Toolkit, wrap all third-party iOS applications with MDX Toolkit 21.3.X or higher and upgrade those apps in the Endpoint Management console. Check the MDX Toolkit download page for the latest version.

Before you upgrade an on-premises Citrix ADC to 13.0-64.35+

If you use the on-premises version of Citrix ADC and upgrade to version 13.0–64.35+: Perform the workaround described in Known issues in Endpoint Management 20.10.1.

Endpoint Management 21.3.0

The following features are now rolling out to commercial customers. Releases to US government customers begin within three months. For feature differences between the commercial and US government offerings, see Endpoint Management service for US Government.

Streamlined flow for adding Android Enterprise apps to Intune managed environments. You can now add Android Enterprise apps to the Endpoint Management console and the Intune console at the same time. For more information about this workflow, see Add Android Enterprise apps to the Citrix Cloud Library.

Generate a QR code for Android Enterprise enrollment. Endpoint Management can now generate QR codes for Android Enterprise enrollment. By using the Endpoint Management console to generate a QR code for enrollments, you avoid external sites that can be malicious. For more information about generating QR codes, see Create a QR code.

Bootstrap token support for macOS devices. Endpoint Management now supports escrowing bootstrap tokens for macOS devices. A bootstrap token is generated during the Setup Assistant workflow. One benefit of escrowing bootstrap tokens with Endpoint Management is that remote accounts can be enabled for FileVault and able to unlock the FileVault volume. For more information, see Bootstrap token.

Endpoint Management 21.2.0

The following features are now rolling out to commercial customers. Releases to US government customers begin within three months. For feature differences between the commercial and US government offerings, see Endpoint Management service for US Government.

    • Biometric: Prevents the user from setting up Touch ID and Face ID. For macOS 10.12.4 and later.
    • True Tone: Prevents users from setting up four-channel sensors to dynamically adjust the white balance of the display. For macOS 10.13.6 and later.
    • Apple Pay: Prevents users from setting up Apple Pay. If this setting is cleared, users must set up Touch ID and Apple ID. Ensure that the Apple ID and Biometric settings are cleared.
    • Screen Time: Prevents users from enabling Screen Time. For macOS 10.15 and later.

For more information about configuring setup options, see Deploy devices through the Apple Deployment Program.

macOS PKG file uploads now limited by upload time instead of file size. You can now upload larger PKG files such as Microsoft Office for macOS devices. Endpoint Management has removed the previous file size limit of 0.5 GB and instead limits file upload time. By default, you must complete your upload within 100 seconds. For more information, see Add an enterprise app.

Endpoint Management no longer supports weak cryptographic algorithms for certificate-based authentication. When you create a certificate signing request for a credential provider in the Endpoint Management console, choose a stronger cipher. For the list of removed signature algorithms, see Deprecation.

New look and feel. Citrix has updated the Endpoint Management console with new colors, fonts, toggles, and other formatting changes. Some new UI elements may not load correctly until you clear your browser cache and refresh.

App uninstall policy now available for macOS. You can now remove managed apps from macOS devices by using the App uninstall policy. For more information, see App uninstall device policy.

Enhancements for a delivery group. You can now manage the deployment of a delivery group using device property rules along with the existing user property rules. If you enroll multiple devices to the same user, you can now create advanced filters within the delivery group based on the unique device properties, such as device ownership, model, OS version, compliance, and others. For more information, see To add a delivery group.

APIs are now available for creating reports (Preview). The Reporting APIs are read-only APIs using JSON as the query language. The APIs allow you to do the following:

  • Create robust compliance reports on application versioning, device OS patching, Android DA (Legacy) to Android Enterprise migration progress, and more.
  • Issue custom queries against your cloud database in a secure way.
  • Export data about your cloud service, such as lists of applications, devices, users, enrollments, and software.
  • Save information in JSON or CSV format.

These APIs are the cloud equivalent to having access to an on-premises database and running custom SQL queries. To learn more about the reporting APIs, see the documentation on the Citrix Developer portal.
