What's new in 
BlackBerry UEM
 12.10 MR1

  • Installation/Third-Party Software
    OpenJDK
     8-based builds that are compatible with 
    Java SE
     8 are now supported as an alternative to using 
    Oracle
     
    JDK
     8. These builds and support are available from vendors such as 
    Azul Systems
     (
    Zulu
    ) or 
    AdoptOpenJDK
    . For information about supported 
    JRE
     versions, see the BlackBerry UEM Compatibility Matrix
  • Factory reset protection for 
    Android Enterprise
     devices
    : You can set up a Factory reset protection profile for your organization’s 
    Android Enterprise
     devices that have been activated using the Work space only activation type. This profile allows you to specify a user account that can be used to unlock a device after it has been reset to factory settings, or remove the need to sign in after the device has been reset to factory settings. 
  • Update period for apps that are running in the foreground
    : On devices that are activated with 
    Android Enterprise
    , you can set an update period for apps that are running in the foreground because by default, when an 
    Android
     app is running in the foreground, 
    Google Play
     cannot update it. You can also control how 
    Google Play
     applies the changes to the device such as the user can allow the change, or the change occurs only when the device is connected to a 
    Wi-Fi
     network.
  • Fingerprint authentication
    : You can now open the 
    BlackBerry UEM Client
     and configure fingerprint authentication after 
    BlackBerry Dynamics
     app activation is complete.
  • TLS 1.2
    : All SSL connections between 
    BlackBerry UEM
     and 
    BlackBerry UEM Cloud
     and other internal and external systems now use TLS 1.2.
  • Support for deploying B2B apps licensed with your 
    Apple
     VPP account:
     If you have obtained B2B apps using your 
    Apple
     VPP account and added your VPP account to 
    BlackBerry UEM
    , you can now assign those apps to users and groups in 
    BlackBerry UEM
    .
