Mobile Browser Issue
Due to latest updates on mobile versions of Chrome (73.x) and Safari using iOS 12.1.4 application, buttons might not be visible in dialogs and forms. Firefox 15.0 (13894) might be used on mobile devices until Matrix42 is providing a hotfix to solve the problem.
Desktop versions of the mentioned browsers are not affected.
This issue affects all currently supported versions of Matrix42 Software Asset & Service Management.
This information is only relevant when updating from product versions earlier than AirWatch 8.0.
Because of technical restrictions of the AirWatch REST API, SIM cards can currently be identified only by phone number. This can lead to mismatches (wrong assignments) because of ambiguities in approximately 20% of cases. As a temporary workaround, we offer the possibility to switch off mapping of SIM cards directly in the Data Provider settings. This issue requires changes in the AirWatch software. We are currently communicating with responsible owners at AirWatch to have this problem resolved as soon as possible. We want to continue providing full SIM card reconciliation in future product versions. We apologize for any inconveniences.
Customized LDAP Workflows
Customized LDAP workflow can be broken because of the breaking change in execution contract of the LDAP: Import Groups and LDAP: Membership import definitions. Because of the additional input parameter DomainId to these GDIEs, the ExecuteGDI workflow activity in the customized LDAP workflow does not meet the input contract and fails the workflow execution.
Set up the DomainId parameter for Execute GDI Sequence activities with names GDIE Group and GDIE Membership to solve this issue.

Software Asset Management
- The Contract Management application is now fully available in the new user interface (UUX). This allows our customers to use Asset Management software with a completely new and exciting user experience.
- The data provider for reading the VMware virtualization now also determines the operating system of the virtual machines. This makes it much easier to configure the subsequent inventory process.
- The data provider for reading the Citrix virtualization now also determines the hardware specification as well as the operating system of the physical hosts. Now the system can automatically create license requirements for the operating system of the hypervisor.
- For bundled services, it is now possible to modify the number of services contained in the Service Catalog during the request.
- In the Service Catalog application, you can configure services during the request not only using radio- and check boxes, but also using selection lists.
General User Experience
- In all applications, the operator "does not contain" is available in the advanced search to further simplify the search for relevant data records.
- In journal pages it is now possible to expand and collapse entries. This increases significantly clarity and readability for users.
The setup program can be used to update existing installations of product version 8.0.2 or higher.
