  1. Customized Pilot user section in Software Center

    It would ne nice to have the ability to flip a switch that allows users to then see an area in Software center where they could join the company pilot group. Currently we have to manually maintain a list of users. This way, users could opt in to the pilot group for their machine. Pilot deployments would then be distinguishable from standard deployments so the user would know what was going on. Also a way for them to send feedback to the SCCM team would be great, even if it was just a thumbs up/down.

  2. If you rename a Software Update Group, ADR is not working anymore

    Hi,

    please check if this is a bug or we made something weird: If you rename a Software Update Group which is created by an Automatic Deployment Group, the ADR is crashing on next run.

    Sometimes we need to rename them if a product is added or removed.

    Cool Option would be if you rename an ADR, the Name of the Group + Deployment will be updated with a new Name, too.

    Thanks in Advance

    Florian

  3. Custom Update Description in Software Center

    Would be good if you could change the description of the Office 365 updates to match the update text or at least not include the paragraph about it not being possible to deploy via WSUS. It's just not something that needs to be visible in Software Center.

    Either that or allow administrators to overwrite the description visible in Software Center for users similar to custom severity. It's not a big thing, but I've had a few people ask about it.

  4. SU download from MS for DA/VPN computers only (rest via DP)

    The 1806 feature to download from MS directly is great. But once the SU is downloaded it won't work anymore. Would like to have the option to deploy in different ways (DA clients to pull from MS, on site clients from DP).

  6. Integrate GitHub and SCUP

    When your devs publish a new version in Git it automatically creates an update catalog entry. We can then use SCUP to push that new version to our clients.

  7. "client is Windows 7, 8, or 8.1, and express download not anabled yet" error

    I have enabled express update on SCCM 1802, and my windows 7 OSes are not getting patched, instead I am getting
    "CBundledUpdate::OnJobAttach - failed with error 0x87d0066a"
    "Failed to perform Job Attach to update, error = 0x87d0066a."
    "client is Windows 7, 8, or 8.1, and express download not anabled yet" errors on UpdateHandler.log
    Not to mention there is a typo "anabled". I can't find any document about how to enable windows 7's express update function on your M$ sites.

  8. Add installation progress to the Feature Updates

    The lack of an "Installation Progress" indicator for most updates isn't an issue. But given the Feature Updates can take quite a while, it would be nice to have that progress percentage (perhaps just the "Mapped Global progress" form the setupact.log) displayed in Software Center.

  9. recurring schedule

    anchored recurring schedule

    I want to propose a feature for SCCM CB that would be easy to implement and I think would be of great use to everybody. I call it anchored recurring schedule.

    So for example we can say 2nd Tuesday of the month plus a number of days. This way we can schedule deployments based on patch Tuesdays, we always deploy at a fixed offset from patch Tuesday

  10. script query of automatic deploy rules

    PowerShell scripting or WQL queries of automatic deploy rules for selection of update filtering in the SCCM Console.

    For example, to filter out everything but “Feature update to windows 10 (business editions), version 1803, en-us” I must use the query shown in the attachment.

    1803 OR -gb OR -consumer (1803 OR NOT gb OR NOT consumer)

    Because OR is the only logical join and the ‘-‘ is a literal character and ‘-‘ means NOT I have to filter with negative logic.

    A bigger issue is that when a new version comes out I must manually change the query to change…

  13. add software update to software update group

    I would like the ability to right click > add to software update group. this would be much faster to choose my own SUG rather than waiting on the list of SUG's to populate and mark a checkbox to add the update to the SUG. this would be the same functionality as adding a device to a new collection or existing collection.

  14. Software Update Compliancy for Software Update Group - Report

    Hi,

    I'm using the Report "Compliance 1 - Overall Compliance".
    I want to check compliance of specific computers with a software update group deployed to them. However lots of computers get "Non-compliant" as status. When I click through the report the non-compliancy is coming from updates NOT included in the software update group. This doesn't seem very logic to me.

    I would like to have a report which shows me the compliancy for updates ONLY included in the software update group, no other updates. As according to me it happens sometimes that updates are required but aren't deployed yet because…

  15. Have an option to decline or stop/prevent a Windows Update from deploying from the SCCM Console.

    I wanted to block an update from deploying the other day and didn't see a button/option to say DECLINE / DONT DEPLOY within the Configuration Manager Console. I saw the update had been downloaded already, but had not been deployed. So I wanted to make sure it would not get deployed at all. I had to go into the WSUS server and decline the Update these and then re-synch the sccm database.
    Quick DECLINE or STOP / BLOCK button would be nice. Or an UNINSTALL/REMOVE button.

  16. Add vendor description to update search parameter (product)

    When you add 3rd party drivers/software/firmware updates to update catalog, you can only filter updates by names that might get confusing when you have multiple vendors. Right now the product for HP is either Firmware/Software/Driver. We can only assume Lenovo, Dell, ... Will have the same and it Will be confusing. HP Driver/HP Software/HP Firmware would make more sence and make filtering easier.

  17. Software updates query

    I would like the software updates module have an improved filter.
    Basically I want to create filters which can use NOT LIKE on columns such as severity or Product.

  18. s int32 instead string.

    In this way we could compare built compilation versión better. It's useful this comparation for build dynamics collections throught queries which gathers device with lower built compilation than current ones.

  19. Software Updates should support specifying order of install

    Request being file on behalf of a large communications customer. Please ping me for any specific details required.

    Based on the recent challenges with 4088878 and 4088875

    We released a fix, 4099950, to resolve the issue. Our guidance is that we should install 4099950 prior to the March update. The software updates mechanism in ConfigMgr currently does not provide a means of specifying an installation order for updates. Scenarios such as this underscore the need for such capabilities.
