All New Integrations and More
We are very excited to announce the next piece of our work to improve the Addigy user experience – an all new Integrations page. The Integrations page remains the single place to control and enable Apple Business Manager and Apple School Manager, integrations to 3rd party products, and granting access to applications to use the Addigy API.
As part of ongoing efforts to improve your experience using Addigy, we have worked to make the Integrations page more straight forward to use putting the information you need most close at hand.
Several of the key differences you will notice right away include:
- Apple Business Manager and Apple School Manager integrations are front and center.
- Addigy integrations are broken out from 3rd party integrations into their own section to make them easier to find. Single Sign-on Providers are broken out into their own section.
- Each API Integration you’ve enabled continue to be at the bottom of the page.
Enabling an API integration and the links to the API Docs have not been moved. They remain at the top of the page. And API Integrations previously created remain at the bottom of the page.
You can also see Addigy Identity in the screen shot. Addigy Identity Okta and Azure is currently in beta and you can join the beta by requesting access via a support ticket.
Don’t hesitate to let us know what you think. If you have any questions, let us know!
iOS 13 Compatibility and more!
Addigy is proud to announce compatibility with iOS 13! You can expect your iOS devices that are running iOS 13 from Apple will be managed in the same way as your devices running pre-iOS 13 versions.
With the first of Apple’s new OSs shipping today and the new iPhones becoming available tomorrow, we understand how important it is to be able to ensure you can confidently take care of your end users and customers. And with the new iPadOS shipping “this fall” and macOS Catalina coming “in October”, we are hard at work getting Addigy ready for those releases.
You can now enroll your Catalina and iPadOS test machines into Addigy for testing. Please report via normal channels any problems you encounter during your testing. We have been busy releasing changes in support of Catalina and iPadOS to ensure you’ll be ready to support your fleet when they release.
If you are in Apple’s beta program (Apple Seed or Developer Program) for the OSs you may join the Addigy beta program to get access to the new capabilities in Catalina and iOS 13 as we roll them out in beta testing. Please contact our support team if you’d like access to our beta program.
If you’d like to learn more about some of the changes coming in Catalina take a look at this post.
GoLive – the Evolution Continues
The latest release of Addigy includes more changes to GoLive intended to improve your experience using Addigy to take care of your customers.
First you’ll notice that there is a new tab “Security”. This tab replaces what was the “FileVault” tab and will be the place you find all things security related for both iOS and Mac devices.
The Security tab will display the FileVault Encryption details when you’re viewing a Mac. If you’re viewing an iOS device you’ll see a brand new MDM command we’ve added with this release: “Clear Passcode”. We have many more capabilities planned for the Security tab and they will be rolling out soon.
Next you’ll see another new tab “Networking”. The first thing you’ll notice is that “Speed Test” has moved to the new Networking tab, and the “Speed Test” tab is gone. This is part of our effort to simplify where things live in GoLive by putting related items together on the appropriate tab.
In this spirit you will see two new MDM capabilities on the Networking tab. First is the MDM command to toggle Remote Desktop access on Mac. Second is the turn on and off AirPlay Mirroring on devices.
As well as with the Security tab, there will be more capabilities coming to the Networking tab soon too!

GoLive Gets a Fresh Look (and a Few New Features)
Summer isn’t over yet! In June we announced the first of a number of planned upgrades to your UI, https://www.addigy.com/weve-put-together-a-fresh-ui-look-for-the-summer. Today we are very happy to announce our next big enhancement to our UI. Our next step on this path is with a fresh look and new features in GoLive! Look for these changes early next week.
The first thing you’ll see when you open the new GoLive is the Overview tab now shows all the Device Facts Addigy collects from your fleet along with all your Custom Facts. You can jump to the Filter box and immediately limit the list of facts displayed to those matching your Filter criteria.
Next, we have implemented an often requested feature in Addigy to simplify moving a device from Policy to Policy. You can now do this directly from the GoLive page via a searchable dropdown. You will be able to quickly move a device out of its current Policy into the Policy you have chosen with just a few clicks.
Underneath the device icon, you’ll see the Device status dropdown. From Device status you can Restart, Shutdown, Lock, Erase, and if an iOS device is Supervised, enable Lost Mode. Once in Lost mode you will be able to update the device location,play a sound, or disable Lost Mode.
Throughout the next few releases, you will see more and more MDM Commands added to Golive.
GoLive will feel very much as it did in the past but with a fresh UI. We’ve added additional filtering capabilities on the Deployments, Installed Apps, and the Ports tabs to help you find things more quickly.
More capabilities will be coming soon to GoLive! All of those MDM commands that have appeared in our API over the last several months will begin to appear in GoLive as well! Look for those capabilities soon.
