  2. report broke in v1710

    v1710 issues with report "Hardware - Disk/Computers with low free disk space (less than specified MB free). Report name needs to reflect GB not MB. Which was changed in v1710

    Inventory default unit revision
    As devices now include hard drives with sizes in the gigabyte (GB), terabyte (TB) and larger scales, this release changes the default unit (SMS_Units) used in many views from megabytes (MB) to GB. For example, the v_gs_LogicalDisk.FreeSpace value now reports GB units.

  3. Reporting Subscriptions - Add Alerts if subscription fails

    Currently, there is no other way to check that report subscriptions have executed correctly but to go in the console and check the Status column for each subscription.

    It would be nice to add the possibility to create alerts on report subscription.

    Benefits:
    - admins & report users can be notified of reporting errors, without having to verify in the console
    - admins no longer miss these errors because they check the console only seldom
    - admins can take immediate action to investigate and fix the error

  5. client data source (Windows Update)

    Display "Microsoft Update" as data source.
    If you enable "fallback to Microsoft Update" for SUP deployment you cannot see this as data source. You can only see "Distribution Point", "Cloud Distribution Point", "BrachCache" and "Peer Cache"

  6. wish back the performance on custom RBAC web reports - fix performance problem on TVF(fn_rbac_R_System_Valid)

    I have build many custom RBAC web reports, cince moving to CB massive performance problems appear on this reports.

    As part of a man day analysys i noticed that the most of them has a validation join to the TableValuedFunction "fn_rbac_R_System_Valid".

    And finaly 6 hours of searching i found the bug that produces this performance Problem in the function named above.

    Attached are the orginal and my improved DropAndRecreate.SQL Files.

    The following sql query needs - executed with my own UserSIDs - needs more than 5 minutes without, and only 2 secounds with the improvement:

    SELECT Netbios_Name0 FROM dbo.fn_rbac_R_System_Valid(@UserSIDs);

  7. Client Data Sources Data - Timestamps

    Basically, in order to create better reports on things like content download performance etc ā€“ we need more accurate time stats so:

    1. Currently the time reported appears in the DB as - 2017-11-08 00:00:00.000 ā€“ so if effect we only get the date, although I see on the client that the actual correct start time is there in the CTM WMI class, so would it be possible to report this?
    2. What would be really great (if number 1 is possible) is if you could also report the ā€˜End Timeā€™ for a download. This would facilitate reports detailing downloadā€¦

  8. Fix bug in data warehouse report for EndPoint Protection

    In the SQL query for the datawarehouse Endpoint report the line in the query "ELSE DATEDIFF(day, AntivirusSignatureUpdateDateTime, @Now) " means that there is never more than 7 days worth of data reported in the report. This is because this line says that anything over 7 days is non-compliant because it compares against @now.

    A better comparison is against the date the data was entered i.e. "ELSE DATEDIFF(day, AntivirusSignatureUpdateDateTime, am.LastSyncTime_DW)" - which makes it relative to the Sync data rather than the date the report is run.

  9. Unable to pull Microsoft SQL Server 2014 & 2016 Edition report i.e. Standard, Enterprise, Express or Datacentre

    I noticed SCCM is not able to pull Microsoft SQL Server 2014 & 2016 Edition report i.e. Standard, Enterprise, Express or Datacentre.

    This I have checked with multiple customers environment & in multiple SCCM version. Its very strange that Microsoft SCCM not able to pull Microsoft product inventory properly.

  10. DataWarehouse reports - Filter Software Updates Compliance on a SUG

    Currently a computer seems to be marked as non-compliant if at least one update is missing in the DW tables. There are loads of reasons why this may be justified. The DW reports would be much better if we could filter on a SUG as that would be more meaningful for end users

  11. Filter EndPoint & Software Updates DataWarehouse report via Collection

    The datawarehouse reports are a welcome addition. However it would be much more useful to be able to filter on collection for the report "Endpoint Protection and software updates compliance - Historical". We could then drill down to collections built on OS Version etc

  12. Update and remove old software references in the canned reports

    The canned reports for Asset Intelligence are great, but they are out of date.
    I don't see any updates or references to Windows 10, and I see Windows XP still listed, as well as many out of date, unsupported softwares.

    For an upcoming upgrade, a refresh of all those canned reports would be fantastic.

  13. Modify Custom Reports without Site Modify

    The ability to edit reports is based is based on assigned roles. If you create a separate folder for custom reports then you must give the users modify permission on the site so that their accounts are added into the 'ConfigMgr Report Administrators' SSRS role at the root report folder. That's a lotta permission just to edit custom reports. So ideally there'd be an RBA role permission for any report not covered by existing permissions. Really anything that disassociates that ability from modifying sites.

  14. Add 'Subject' to Subscriptions pane

    We have a lot of subscriptions that use the same Report Name, and it is nearly impossible to determine which Subscription is which. Can you please add a Column to the Subscription pane that will show the 'Subject' of each particular Report? this will make it much easier to identify what each subscription is. Thanks!

  15. Duplicate or Copy Report Subscriptions

    It would be a great feature to have the ability to copy or duplicate a report subscription. Often we have to create a new report subscription that matches an existing subscription (for updates compliance) before we are done using the existing subscription.

    Being able to copy a subscription will save a lot of work if the description, notes, schedule are all the same. All you have to do is change the update group in the parameters.

  16. create custom ssrs roles for sccm reporting

    currently there are two ssrs roles: configmgr report users, configmgr report administrators. I would like to give users a bit more permissions that the standard report users role wo making them administrators.

  18. Dataware house service point and MBAM compliance information (sccm 1702 and later)

    When sccm deletes old computer information (as per the scheduled system maintenace task), compliance information for Bitlocker is also removed for that computer.
    Can the datawarehouse servicepoint also copy MBAM compliance to the datawarehouse database (when MBAM is integrated with SCCM).

  19. Expand Software Tag inventory to include optional elements

    Some software vendors include optional elements that are not gathered by the Asset Intelligence Software Tag Inventory. Adobe for example places the serial number in this section, and without being able to gather that serial number its impossible to tell what version of Acrobat is installed on a PC without writing convoluted scripts/CIs. Please expand the software tag inventory scan to include optional elements. Example of an Adobe software tag below

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <swid:software_identification_tag xsi:schemaLocation="http://standards.iso.org/iso/19770/-2/2008/schema.xsd software_identification_tag.xsd"
    xmlns:swid="http://standards.iso.org/iso/19770/-2/2008/schema.xsd&quot; xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

    <!--Mandatory Identity elements -->
    <swid:entitlement_required_indicator>true</swid:entitlement_required_indicator>
    <swid:product_title>Adobe Acrobat</swid:product_title>
    <swid:product_version>

  20. Access user/computer focussed reports from the device/user collections

    If I right click on a computer in a collection there are many contextual items on the menu. It would be useful for us to be able to launch the 'compliance 5 - specific computer' report for that computer directly from the menu. there are other device centric reports focussed on the hostname that could be easily accessible.
    Possibly access the report from the same area as the 'primary user' link in the summary pane.
