KC release notes — April 22nd 2020

Hot key mapping customizations

This key mapping update addresses Samsung's strategic partnership with Microsoft and the goal to include additional important customers in the near term. Such customers want to add customizable key mapping support as a device enrollment and configuration function using a Knox Configure profile.

Customers can use KC to remap device keys to launch an app and send specific intents to an app.

Additionally, customizable hot key remapping combinations are now supported. For instance, launch one app with a short press action and another app with a long press action. Select an available template for hot key mapping based on the intended key mapping configuration.

When completed, review the configurations customized for specific key mapping templates, keys, key press types, actions, and applicable packages.

For more information, refer to the Device settings portion of Setup mode profile configuration or Normal mode profile configuration.

Remaining license seat display optimizations

Going forward, remaining license seats only display within the main Knox Configure Licenses screen. This should reduce reported confusion in respect to discerning remaining seats from both assigned and activated seats.

License renewal 30 day grace period

Knox Configure now supports a 30 day grace period to accommodate license renewal delays. If the same license key is renewed, there is no action required by an IT admin and the license reverts back to normal. The admin can also replace with a new key within 30 days to avoid devices being unassigned.

Improved Enterprise Edition (EE) device differentiation

Currently there is no way to optimally filter and differentiate EE from non-EE devices within the KC console. This has resulted in reported frustration wanting to filter EE supported devices.

To remedy this poor console behavior, the EE tag next to the device model number has been moved to the TAGS column in the Device and Device details screens to provide improved filter capabilities for EE devices. Additionally, an EE tag now displays as Enterprise Edition and looks like existing console tags for consistency,
