  1. Change the "Allow Remediation outside the maintenance window" on Baseline deployments to "Allow evaluation..."

    The current wording in Configuration Baseline deployment settings is misleading. The current option to "Allow remediation outside the maintenance window" implies that the Discovery actions will still execute according to the schedule. In reality, the Discovery is scheduled for the next available maintenance window, which then determines whether to remediate.

    Suggest changing the wording to "Allow evaluation outside the maintenance window", which is more clear as to the behavior.

  2. Script Execution Timeout GUI

    Unable to change the timeout setting for configuration items. 60 isn't long enough for some configuration items to properly run their powershell scripts.

  3. Enable settings to silently configure OneDrive for Business profile

    If you create OneDrive for Business profile to enable Known Folder Move, it only works if the user has an existing OneDrive for Business profile.

    It would be very helpful, if SCCM could also silently enable OneDrive for Business profile for the users if they don't have it.

    There should be 3 new settings to enable OneDrive for Business silently:
    - Silently Enable OneDrive for Business: SilentAccountConfig (most important)
    - Enable OneDrive Files on Demand: FilesOnDemandEnabled
    - Maximum OneDrive Size Before Prompting: DiskSpaceCheckThresholdMB

  4. Run Scripts: Expand Uses to Applications and Configuration Items

    With 1902 we have the ability to now link a script, in the "Run Scripts" feature, to a step in a task sequence. This is a great step forward, but it could be expanded more.

    A number of businesses have a need for version support/change management/auditing, etc. Its also nice to have your scripts located in ONE location, rather than many. It would be awesome if we could leverage the current Run Scripts as more of a repository, and allow them to not only be used for the actual "Run Scripts" feature, and in task sequences, but also in CI'sā€¦

  5. Enable All Subfolders search for Compliance Settings

    Currently you cannot search 'All Subfolders' within Configuration Items or Configuration Baselines. You can only search the current node/folder.

  6. Expose Windows Defender Configuration (Specifically Exploit Guard) as a CI Baseline

    I believe the Windows Defender Configurations and specifically the Exploit Guard configuration settings are evaluated very similarly to a configuration baseline. It would be awesome if we could see this under the Configurations Tab in the Config Manager client so we can see revision information + force re-evaluation.

  7. SCAP Import content wizard should allow admin to specify a folder for CIs

    When using the Import a new SCAP content wizard, the new configuration items and baselines are placed into the root of the corresponding node. While you can add the date created column, sort, and move, it would be nice to be able to specify an existing folder (or create new) during the wizard.

  8. Compliance state always 'Compliant' when remediation script runs

    Use the output from Remediation to test and see if it was actually successful rather than assuming it was successful. Only way is to have a true non-compliance is to throw a non-zero exit code when using a script.

    For more details see: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/0f0f3e6f-7e9f-4376-a926-fc0b6aef5bf1/sccm-compliance-state-always-compliant-when-remediation-script-runs

  9. Add the hability to deploy 'Data and User Profiles' to Computers Collections

    Hello,

    Data and Users Profiles are good to get rid of the equivalent GPO settings. However, they lack the possibility to be deployed to Computers Collections.

    Offline Folders for instance can be set as 'Computer setting' with GPO and you can't do the equivalent with SCCM as you can only deploy to 'Users Collections'.

    Best regards,
    Michael De Bona

  10. If you set "Configuration Baselines" of "Windows Defender Firewall Policy", the event "Invalid namespace" occur

    If you set "Configuration Baselines" of "Windows Defender Firewall Policy", the event "Invalid namespace" occurs as "search configuration error".
    This event only occurs in workgroup environments, but not in domain environments.

    The workgroup client wishes that this function can be used because domain GPO can not be used.

  11. Desired Configuration - Remediation Client Log

    Currently, there is no client logging when a Configuration Item is remediated. This is all that there is:

    1) An entry in CIAgent.log:
    "Invocation succeeded for policy platform job <GUID>"

    2) 2 entries in %PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Policy Platform\PolicyPlatformClient.log:
    "Starting job [<GUID>] with the following parameters"
    "Mode = Remediate, JobPriority = Foreground, PrincipalId = [SYSTEM], ScopeFilters = # filter[s]"

    The other other place that there's evidence of remediation are in the Baseline reports on the client and the SSRS reports on the server.

    None of these locations show any detail about when _individual_ configuration items were remediated. I recently had to troubleshootā€¦

  12. Approval process on DCM - Configuration Items

    As it is with the Scripting Node, there are some that may utilize the feature that Scripts need to be Approved; would like to see a mechanism on DCM on the Configuration Item that requires review/approval before it can be attached and deployed in a baseline. The goal is to keep operators from skirting the scripting approval process by using a DCM Object to perform the actions they want to execute that they could not do via Scripting due to lack of approval.

  13. Use Configuration Item Results in SCCM

    I would like to be able to use the results of a configuration item to create collections.

    An example would be I have a CI that collects the value of a registry key on computers. I am returning the value of that reg key. I would like to be able to create collections based on the value of the reg key result I had returned.

    If I have it return the string ā€œ1234ā€. I want create a collection based off of computers that return 1234.

  15. Set A configuration Baseline as dependency in Deployment type

    At the dependencies tab in deployment type configuration, be able to select a configuration baseline to be evaluated/apply a remediation. Think is a powerful way to set some required settings

  16. Convert CI from Operating System type to Application Type

    It happens (quite often) when I'm creating a CI in the console that I blaze thru the wizard (accepting defaults) and start building out all my settings, rules, etc. When I'm all done, I close out and then realize that I forgot to configure the CI as an APPLICATION CI with a detection method.

    So now I have to delete my CI, and start all over from scratch. ANNOYING! I would love the ability to "convert" an Operating System CI type to an Application CI type and be able to go back in and add a detection method as appropriate.

  18. Wired network authentication profiles

    For networks that require port-based 802.1x authentication, group policy wired network profiles is the recommended way to manage the authentication settings for LAN interfaces. It would be really useful if ConfigMgr could manage and apply the wired network profiles. Managing the settings from ConfigMgr would allow us to take more steps away from using Group Policy to manage device settings.

  19. Certificate Profiles for Servers

    We have some workgroup servers which are unable to access the enterprise CA so we want to deploy some root CA certificates to them per sccm.
    Currently it is only possible to select client OSE's on the supported plattform page. Please allow server OSE's as well.
    Thanks

  20. Configuration Baselines only create QWORDs

    Right now if you use HKCU and try to create a DWORD value that does NOT exist, even though you set remediation up properly and select the box that says to create the value as a REG_DWORD, it still does not create the entry at all and the baseline reads as compliant. The creation of DWORD values using baselines has been a common post on forums for many years.
