New Features

Please find all new Unified Endpoint Management features for 24.0 Update 1 below.

Processing rules for the Enterprise Service Bus Extension

Processing rules allow to limit the processing of messages which do not have dedicated handlers and therefor are processed by the generic message handling. Limiting the scope can be useful to increase performance or prevent overwriting data from distinct sources.

By not updating the many multi fragments in a message like hard disks, network cards or processors the processing time and load can be significantly reduced.

Basic function:

  1. Each processing rule defines the data which is considered for a given configuration item (CI). This works as a white list. Not provided data definitions and properties will be ignored.
  2. Several rules can be configured per CI and platform combination but only one can be enabled at a time.
  3. Each rule apples for a platform (i.e. Empirum, Silverback)
  4. If no processing rule exists for a CI the generic processing will be used.

The UEM 24.0.1 Extension provides predefined processing rules which filters all but the basic required information to create and update devices. They are disabled by default.

See the dedicated article for more information and configuration.

Intune App import and assignment (Preview)

This feature is in preview state.  It can be used for testing and evaluation but not production. Feedback is welcome can be provided to beta_UEM@matrix42.com

Intune Apps can now imported and assigned in UEM assignments to deploy apps to Intune or co-managed managed devices.

Prerequisite is the correct configuration of the Intune Inventory Data Provider.

A new data provider "Intune Import for UEM" installed with the UEM Extension collects all Apps from Intune and provides them with the object type "Intune App" and management type "Modern" in the software library. 

The preview of the Apps shows basic information like name, version, description and App Type. In addition the supported platform is displayed.

Assignment can now also contain Intune managed and co-managed (Empirum and Intune) computers and Intune Apps. Assignments for Intune will create groups in Entra which will be added to the App as "Required" or "Uninstall" depending on the setting of the assignment. The group names are based on the following naming schema "MX42-ASSIGMENTNAME-Required" or "MX42-ASSIGNMENTNAME-Uninstall". Devices are added if the assignment is active.

Details are provided in the knowledge base article Microsoft Intune Integration.

The data provider "Intune Integration"  needs to be configured to use a service connection to Microsoft 365 (Intune) as it is described in the Intune Inventory Data Provider documentation which is used to import computer objects.
