The latest UEM Cloud update brings a number of key updates for developers. Let’s start with biggest one – Support for BlackBerry Dynamics. For those of you new to UEM Cloud, login to your organisation account and add an UEM Cloud Server. For example:
You will need to enter a custom domain which will create a tenant for you to login and develop with. For more information go here.
To develop with Dynamics your cloud server will need the following configured
Active Directory – existing Active Directory behind a corporate firewall. See item 2.
BlackBerry Connectivity Node – It allows you to connect remotely behind a firewall to corporate resources i.e. database, active directory etc.
Now you are ready to add users and their devices. Development of Dynamics should be the same as standard UEM “On-Premise” server.
Note – This release brings UEM Cloud closer to being feature equivalent to UEM On-prem. Note that REST and SOAP APIs are available in UEM On-prem are not yet available in UEM Cloud.
There have been some powerful additions to the 12.8 REST APIs that allow more remote control over devices and let you query the UEM server about items such as license usage. Some highlights include the ability to remotely generate access keys for BlackBerry Dynamics apps, retrieve license information for servers and apps, and retrieve a list of assigned and installed apps on devices.
Another exciting addition is the new “commands” API. One version allows you to send commands to a Dynamics app. The other lets you sends commands to a user’s device.
allows you to remotely send BlackBerry UEM commands to a device.
For example, you can remotely lock a device if it has been lost or stolen. The following code sample shows you how to remotely delete device data and set a new password.
