  2. Do not run Server Group's node drain scripts when installing definition updates

    If you define a server group and use Windows Defender you might want to update those definitions as early as possible.

    Currently, those definition updates trigger the node drain and resume skripts, which can lead to service downtime.
    Additionally, the updates can only be installed during maintenance windows.

    I want you to
    a) add an option in deployment in software update groups to always ignore maintenance windows
    b) add an option in deployment in software update groups to ignore server group settings

  3. Software Updates and Required count can link to all devices that need the update.

    When you're in "Software Updates", there is the "Required" column that shows you a number of devices that need that particular update. It would be nice to be able to add something to a right click menu to automatically create a collection of those devices that need the update. Something similar to what you have when you create a Baseline Deployment.

  4. Maintenance Window Blackout

    In some certain scenarios, it would benefit to have the ability to Blackout Existing Maintenance Windows (universal) for a specifc date or range of days.

    e.g. systems maintenance or migration in progress for three days, I don't want those systems to be touched by deployments or software updates as to not cause disruption. Or in a case where its a holiday week and high volume of sales so would like to "pause" any automated actions that could cause reboots within a specified date(s)/time(s).

  5. Ability to easily link a script for SCCM controller reboots.

    In a large enterprise environment its sometimes important to shutdown several services on the local and remote servers in a particular order. It would be nice to be able to easily manage startup/shutdown scripts from a central area that you could attach at the single asset level. Ie a tab that has these items at the single asset

  6. compliance baselines should allow for compliance checks against software update groups

    currently we can only really select individual updates for creating a compliance baseline, it would be great if we could add compliance baselines based on a software updates group

  7. A security patch showing how many devices need it should also have a hyperlink to the names of the devices needing it.

    When a security patch is selected, it shows how many devices are in need of it. Clicking on the 'Required' count should show the device names. It would be helpful to see the information right away than running a report to find the same.

  8. Add tooltip to Icons for Software Updates

    In the software updates space, it would be nice to have a tool tip (hover over) stating what the icon means. Whenever there is an unexpected icon, I need to look up what the icon means. A simple hover over tool tip stating whether it is normal, unavailable, expired, supereded, etc. would be very helpful. Here is the link that I have to look up https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/sum/understand/software-updates-icons

  9. Ability to deploy Software Update Groups to User Collections

    It would make sense to have the ability to deploy software update groups to user collections. We have a few different user collections for "pilot" users. When we want to test new software we deploy to these "waves" of pilot users. This gives us the ability to not have to worry about maintaining the users primary device in a device based collection. We have device based affinity within client settings enabled. So if the user ever replaces their pc it gets updated within 48 hrs of system use. This will dynamically keep our pilot list updated. It's a PIA tryingā€¦

  10. Software Updates Required View Status

    Software Updates Required View Status

    Can we get an option to view status like in deployment status to view machines that are required and installed? We have no idea what does machines are.

    Thanks.

  11. 3rd party revised

    Replace update metadata revision on 3rd party catalog synchronisation. With SCUP, it prompts if you want to replace update informations. Would be nice if this function will be implemented in SCCM Third-Party Software Updates too (automatically or manually). If update already deployed to WSUS, revisions need to be updated automatically to keep consistency.

  12. Feeding pending updates count back to console

    Suggestion:
    It would be great if we could have a pending updates count and added to the device view on the console. this allows monitoring and managing systems with a high number of pending updates.

    Benefits:
    This help to create a quick report of pending updates count, of devices with hoch count of pending updates. Helps also for a quick verification of the count before checking health of client agent

  13. Create an installable package of updates from an ADR.

    For some scenarios it would be helpful to preview an ADR, then make an executable that could be installed as part of a task sequence. Offline media, for example.

  15. Software Updates - more granular.

    WSUS could be a lot more granular, but maybe that can be fixed when using SCCM? For example, there are many versions of Windows 10, now, and we only use a few. Separating x86 and x64 too, would allow our Automatic Deployment Rules to avoid picking up updates that don't apply.
    Thanks heaps.

  16. Third party update Dell Update group by models


    1. When creating new ADR only published Dell updates are searchable to be added, any updates that are not published wonā€™t be shown in the search results. Since publish updates means having updates downloaded first, we have to manually publish the updates we need before creating the ADR selectively, which brings up issue #2;

    2. Since in issue #1 we need to publish updates first before we can create new ADRs, can we group Dell updates by models, say all Dell updates for 9020, since we want to filter Dell updates only with the models we have, then we create a folderā€¦

  17. Have a SUS Blog that is staffed or updated during the monthly Patch release so we can quickly and efficiently locate any problematic updates

    Have a SUS Blog that is staffed or updated during the monthly Patch release so we can quickly and efficiently locate any problematic updates.

    For example we had various issues last year with different monthly .NET updates and this past week with the March updates, a known PXE issue impacting SCCM due to an update. I also had to open a CritSit case Sunday evening because our SUS server could not synchronize with Microsoft internal servers and was told it was an internal Microsoft server issue but it was not posted/blogged or communicate anywhere for customers. We should NOT haveā€¦

  18. Copy selected text of an ADR preview

    I would be handy to copy the selected text to finetune the ADR afterwards. Now we have to take a screenshot to know the Bulletin ID.

  19. Add Software Updates to an excisting update group that has been deployed

    We now have an option to deploy software updates without downloading them, and Iā€™m a fan as this enables many great scenarios.

    But if we want to add a new software update to an existing Update Group, it still requires the update to be downloaded (see screenshot).

    This should be allowed, and the following error should be a warning, and still allow us to add new software updates to an update group that has been deployed.

  20. express installation file download in console

    need to reduce the download of .psf files for each Cumulative updates of Windows 10 versions, as its consuming more than 30 to 40 GB on a monthly basis. Should have a similar option on console like enable express installation on console (which is similar to enable express installation on clients)
