Last Updated: February 15, 2024
- We’re excited to announce iOS is now available to all customers on our Blueprints 2.0 experience. You can now start adding your iPads and iPhones to Esper. In addition, you can:
- Create a single blueprint for iOS and Android devices, or have the
- Now you onboard iOS devices through your Apple Business Management account or a QR code.
- Send commands to iOS devices from the console.
- And more! See our iOS help docs to learn more.
- Online and offline are now Last Seen. We’ve reworked this component to set the right expectations when you manage your device. We’ve also found that the terms “Online” and “Offline” weren’t accurate enough.
- Devices will now have a Last Seen property with three statuses: < 30 minutes, > 30 minutes & < 24 hours, and > 24 hours.
- We've made these changes backward-compatible, meaning you won't need to change your APIs or other workflows when these changes go into effect.
- We’ve also changed the way devices receive commands. There will no longer be a 7-day time out. Commands will be sent to a device when it checks in to the Console, and no processing will happen until the device checks in.
- We’ve changed device removal so that it no longer reflects online status.
- More information is available in our Last Seen FAQ.
- We’ve added firewall rules to the console.
- You can now refer to the Profile > Tenant Settings to see our Current and Legacy firewall rules.
- You’ll see how many devices are below the minimum recommended Esper Agent version. Only devices at or above the minimum version will work with the Current Firewall Rules.
- We’ve already made these firewall rules backward compatible with our onboarding URLs, meaning if the Current Firewall Rules are blocked, the Legacy Firewall Rules will act as a backup.
- See our Firewall Settings article for more information.
- We’ve added the ability to set update modes for Google Play applications in a blueprint or a device’s App section.
Bug Fixes and Improvements
- Added APIs for setting update mode to Google Play applications in the Play Store.
- Improved the way blueprints revert during a converge action to address expired app versions in the Google Play Store.
- Fixed alignment, groups scroll, and remote control UI.
- Implemented strong checks so that provisioning will no longer fail while the Google Play Store apps are installed.
- We resolved an issue where some app versions weren’t visible because of a pagination issue. We’ve implemented infinite scroll and search to address this issue.
- We've begun using different wording for text in the console. We've focused on the new user experience for this round to make working in the console even more delightful.
We’re excited to launch DevRel 120 over the coming days, and the Esper team is hard at work on the next release. Please contact Esper Support to share your thoughts on how Esper can improve future releases.
