We’ve now added the full NoMAD family to the webpage and made it much easier to understand the differences between the products. All of the help pages and all of the links you may have been using should still all go to the same paces, although we will be moving the entire help section in the future as we create separate landing pages for each product.
This started off as a smaller update, then got bigger…
Some cool new features, a few bug fixes, and then a big new feature that we know will evolve some over time. In addition, NoMAD is now all in Swift 4 and all the warnings in Xcode are gone. You can thank Josh for that work.
- Fewer password prompts when updating keychain items. In fact… you should have no password prompts.
- We dug deep into Kerberos and should have squashed the annoying “Domain not set” issue when attempting to change your password through NoMAD for the first time.
- Recursive group search works with “,” in user names.
- Allow for both and expired AD password and a non-matching local password at the same time.

- Known bad domain controllers can be blocked by listing them as an array of FQDNs in

DontShowWelcomeDefaultOff will pre-tick the “Don’t show again” box on the welcome screen so users won’t have to do it themselves when it first appears.
UseKeychainPrompt will now show the Sign In window whenever the user does not have a password in the keychain, even if the user has signed in before.
- Certs pulled via NoMAD can have
eapolclient added to them with the use of the
We thought this would take us a bit longer… but NoMAD now includes a full actions menu which can hold as many “actions” as you’d like. Each action is a customized menu item that can have scripts and other built in actions behind it. Each item can have multiple actions chained together plus the ability to show or hide the item and even put red/yellow/green dots next to the items.
This is a fairly robust way of putting as many custom menu items as you’d like into a submenu in NoMAD.
