  1. SCCM Software updates - Be able to create Server dependencies for Software Updates

    This idea is about having the possibility to create an (optional) dependancy between specified servers, so that a server will not be updated until the server it depends on is already considered fully up to date.
    This would be extremely effective -for instance- for Applications that require the Database Server to be up and running before the Application Server. Especially in large environments these are challenges that SCCM currently doesn't provide any solution for bar scheduling Application Servers in a seperate, later window (which is not ideal for multiple reasons).

  2. Add the ability to disable a deployment on a per computer basis

    In the computer properties we can see all deployments to a system. It would be helpful to have enable/disable options at this level.

    Use case: a new SUG is deployed to an all servers collection each month. For some reason, a subset of the targeted systems need to be removed for the current month's deployment, but removal from the collection as a whole is not desired due to all other 'good' deployments to that collection. If that one deployment to that server or set of servers can be toggled to disabled, the deployment as a whole can continue except forā€¦

  3. Add a patch now option

    Add a patch now option

    From the software update view in the console, add a option to select updates, then having a patch now or deploy now action.

    This could open a window with all the devices on which the updates is missing the give you the ability to add those devices to a collection where the updates are deployed or even give you the ability the create a deployment, download the updates, etc...

  4. deploy to operating system image

    When I do my monthly patch Tuesday deployments; it would be great if in addition to targeting a device collection you could also target one or more operating system images.

    This would allow me to deploy all corporately approved updates not only to our systems but the images that we use to build future systems with.

  5. Software Update Group-Compliance Details

    It will be good to have a "COMPLIANCE" tab to check the compliance percentage for any SUG deployed to multiple collections. As of now, if we need to check for the compliance percent for any SUG. We cannot check it under the "Deployment" node and instead have to go to the particular collection's Deployments node to check the compliance percentage.

  6. Re-downloading an existing update should re-download if it's marked Downloaded but the actual content is missing in the Package Source.

    If the update has been marked as downloaded but the source folder is missing it will not download the file. It would be nice if it verified the source folder.

    We are a large company that does not target software updates to "All Systems" but to smaller collections based upon operating company and Operating system. As such, when trying to deploy a task sequence we cannot get any updates to deploy because the computer is not yet part of a targeted collection. I would like to see 2 changes to address this:
    1. Be able to target software update groups/updates in task sequence.


    1. Add the ability to put computer into specific collections as part of the task sequence.

  9. Allow Periods in Software Update Group Names

    When creating a Software Update Group, you cannot currently use periods in the name. For example, if you tried to create a Software Update Group named "Special Handling - .NET Framework 4.6.1" it would fail as periods are not allowed.

    For bonus points, find any other disallowed characters and make the reason they are blocked go away.

    Thanks for the help!

  10. Better Options for Software Update Saved Searches

    When creating saved searches for Software Updates and you have more than a few products to add, the UI can be painful. Would it be possible to incorporate a UI similar to the one used when creating/editing ADRs so that it's less time consuming (or perhaps creating '*-CMSoftwareUpdateSavedSearch' cmdlets would be better).

  12. Change "Updates were installed" date after patching is completed on cliet

    After patching is complete on the client, the "Updates were installed" date in Windows Update does not change to the current date. a feature that would update this date after a successful patching is complete on the client will be extremely for reporting

  14. In the Summary views for a software update or software update group, make the statistics link through to a list of the machines

    In the Software Library summary tab for SUGs and individual updates, make the Statistics pie chart and Compliant, Non-Compliant and Unknown counts link to a dynamic collection of machines in a specific state, similar to the Endpoint Protection monitoring views.

    We manage both servers and workstations in our SCCM primary site. It would be great in the Software Updates workspace or node in the console when you are viewing all updates to be able to scope of filter the applicability to a collection.

    Since we use the console to build software update groups based off of applicability of the updates for both servers and workstations and two different groups deploy it would be great to be able to only see what is needed for either just workstations or just servers or even better just browse to a collection and thenā€¦

  16. Create maintenance task to clean expired/superseded updates from SUGs and Deployment Packages

    right now, you have to manually delete expired/superseded updates from your deployment package(s) and then remove expired/superseded updates from software update groups. if this could be added as a maintenance task, it would be a huge help to SUP maintenance

  17. Allow periods in SUG Names

    This is rather annoying when you are trying to deploy updates that have a period in their name or version number

    Can this be looked at for future builds so we can create SUGs with names like "SUG - .NET Framework 4.6.1" and not "SUG - DOTNET Framework 4-6-1"?

    :)

  18. Automatic Deployment Rules

    It would be great if when you configure a rule of automatic deployment, we could set through a calendar for the ADR-Automatic Deployment Rules run.

    In my environment, I need the rule of automatic deployment run from Monday to Friday, because I enable Wake On Lan feature to customers with upgrade and SCAN the SCEP-antimalware System Center solution Endpoint Protection set.

  20. Include Reset/Repair functionality of the Windows Update Agent

    When troubleshooting failed installations of Software Updates, a simple reset of the Windows Updates Agent resolves the issue. It would be great to include some type of automated reset/repair functionality of the Windows Update Agent.
