About This Release

The current version of Entgra IoT Server is 4.0.0.

As the 17th installment in succession, this version robustly demonstrates a 100% performance boost. This is also the richest in terms of features and improvements for all supported Android, iOS, macOS and Windows devices.

Some of the highlights of this release include:

  • Google Enterprise EMM Partner for Android

    Recognized as one of the best Android Device and Service Providers by Google, this means that all public apps from Google Playstore can now be installed silently. Combining this with the enrollment time app installation policy, you can now define some private/public apps to be installed silently from Playstore when the user enrols a device.

  • Pre-Approved Allow-List Devices and Auto-Assign to Groups

    Strengthening security a step further, the Entgra IoT Server now enables command-line based enrollment for Android. Prior to enrollment, it is possible to allow-list (approve) which devices are allowed to be enrolled with the server. This can be done based on the serial numbers of the devices. Also at the time of enrollment, the device can be automatically assigned to the groups based on predefined rules.

  • Powerful Reporting UI Capabilities with Real-Time Event Processing

    With WSO2 Siddhi Core Integration, Entgra IoT server now has a new reporting UI that carries a set of prebuilt reports useful for an EMM administration. This release also carries a new siddhi core-based implementation to do real-time complex event processing and also an in-house solution for batch processing to create customized reports as you wish.
