Advanced automation capabilities
Do everything you can do natively in the SimpleMDM admin interface but automate it to your liking. Leverage the API to perform basic device management tasks, such as restart, lock, and shut down devices, or build custom logic to automate entire deployment workflows.
Countless integration opportunities
Whether you’re looking to implement infrastructure –as code (IaC) or leverage webhooks to receive information in real time — the possibilities for integrations are endless. Popular software and applications that SimpleMDM customers already integrate with using the API include:
