  1. Hide configuration baselines targeted to mobile devices on Windows clients

    In a hybrid environment all user targeted baselines are displayed on Configuration Manager Control Panel utility. In the attached picture from a Windows 10 client, you can see that there are baselines that make sense only on iOS/Android/WP devices.

    Those baselines shouldn't be visible on Windows ConfigMgr client. They just confuse users/admins.

  2. Compliance Configuration Item - Setting Evaluation Ordering

    Currently I can add multiple settings of various types to a single CI. But there is no way to control the order that the settings are evaluated in within a single configuration item. Now that we have the options of having the Script setting type, I may want to do things in the script that create values for another setting, such as registry needs to verify. The only way to accomplish this is with multiple CI (one for script and others for other types) added to the baseline in a specific order with the script being added first. I wouldā€¦

  3. Ability to evaluate device compliance via software center

    In the compliance section of Software Center it should be possible to diagnose the following:
    1. Check Client Version
    2. Repair SCCM Client
    3. Check WMI status
    3. Check Connectivity with server and report issues

    This information can be gathered by 1st line support executive and passed on to 2nd line for faster support.

  4. Non Compliance - Get Actual Value

    Hello,

    Can you add on the "Non-Compliant" tab the column "Actual Value"
    Because actually we need to click on each device to know this actual value ...

  5. sccm windows firewall policies feature

    expand the windows firewall policies feature to allow you to create actual firewall rules and policies on devices. currently you can only enable or disable the local host firewall. would be great to have more granular control and have a central way of managing host firewalls without using GPOs.

  6. Allow defining custom OMA-URI settings for Windows 10 clients with ConfigMgr client

    Currently you cannot define custom OMA-URI settings for Windows 10 clients with ConfigMgr client. You can only define quite limited set of settings. Unfortunately, there are some important OMA-URI settings that should be set on all Windows 10 clients (DataProtection/AllowDirectMemoryAccess), which are not part of limited available settings.

    This is now one example, but there will be other examples in the future.

    Currently, there is not good way to deploy the setting easily to all clients in the environment.

  7. Configuration Baseline Workflow

    I'd like to see the configuration baselines expanded to include a workflow option similar to creating a task sequence.

    This in my view should allow for conditional operators (if,or,else) to allow for greater flexibility to control a compliance state on multiple configuration items. If configuration items within this could also allow for separate or multiple options of remediation actions it would be great.

    Furthermore if the values determined in individual configuration items could be assigned to named variables within this workflow it would allow for complex remediation tasks including passing through all or some these variables to script driven remediationā€¦

  8. L2TP VPN - Allow psk to be added

    Currently there is no option to add a psk to an L2TP VPN when deploying a VPN Profile from Config Manager VPN Profile Wizard. This would be good to have so that it is a one-stop solution, rather than having to continue using CMAK or (as our client wants to do) forcing a powershell script to work. This missing option is the only thing stopping us using the built in tools.

  9. Integrate the the SCAP Extensions. Make it easier to use, faster, and include dashboards\reports.


    1. Make a GUI for running the SCAP extensions. Preferably integrate the SCAP extensions into SCCM so SCAPtoDCM.exe can be run from right clicking Compliance Settings

    2. Reduce the amount of PowerShell code created in each Configuration Item (CI). A CI that checks for the existence of a registry key is very long. Additionally, some of the CIā€™s will either timeout or require an increase in the timeout time which could affect client performance.

    3. CIā€™s created should not use the oval ID as its name as it cannot be correlated to practical information. In the case of DISA STIGS, the CI nameā€¦

  11. Complete Group Policy Integration

    Configuration Manager should be able to configure all aspects of a workstation that can be done using other Microsoft tools. Some group policy items already exist such as folder redirection and Firewall Policies. It would be great if Firewall could be expanded to include creation of firewall exceptions. It would also be great if we could configure all group policies from within SCCM perhaps using compliance settings.

  13. DSC to replace or compliment basline feature

    DSC is a wonderful framework for handling baseline configurations across Windows and Linux machines, but it's completely unsupported in SCCM directly. While a Pull server is certainly more simplistic than an SCCM hierarchy, it would still be very beneficial to have some integration in a couple of areas:

    Management Points can easily be configured to host mof configurations for clients, and a new client policy class for allowing the SCCM agent to configure the pull server settings on a host would be great. Alternatively a new role could be made ... not sure that would feel as elegant.

    The baselineā€¦

  14. Natively integrate SCAP policy enforcement into SCCM

    Integrate the ability to natively enforce SCAP policy enforcement via SCCM. Provide the capability automatically download SCAP policies from sources such as DISA and other SCAP content providers.

    Integrate the application of the SCAP policies into the OS provisioning processes as an option for out of the box compliance at OS deployment before the OS touches the network.

  15. More accurate registry Compliance Settings

    When creating the Configuration Item (Create Configuration Item Wizard, Settings step) and choosing Registry setting type for the Create Setting window, there are some bizarre registry types mentioned in Data type drop-down box: String, Integer, Date and Time, Floating Point, Version and String Array. Most of these data types are all REGSZ type. But where is REGMULTISZ? REGEXPANDSZ? REGDWORD? REGQWORD? REGBINARY?
    There is also possibility to set/check compliance for those registry settings with script, but why the Registry Configuration Item in first place?
    These actual registry data types need to be implementedā€¦

  16. Compliance Settings - Scripttype - check on returncode than stdout output

    It would be useful, if a compliancesetting scripttype would be able to check the compliance based on the return value rather than all the Output of Stdout.
    Now the only way for me is, piping cmds to Out-Null, to ensure that a item can get compliant:

    p = some.exe |out-null
    if ($p.ExitCode -eq 0){Write-Host "SUCCESS"}
    else{Write-Host "FAILURE"}

    But for developing/troubleshouting purposes it would be nice, if i havent to catch all stdout output, especially for longer scripts, or tools, which i cannot modify ( 3rd Party vendor )

  17. Automate Device Guard Whitelisting Policy Management

    Automate the Device Guard policy controls using SCCM as the management platform for Device Guard security policies. Integrate the Device Guard policy provisioning during the application build process to reduce the manual efforts.

    Bring the SCCM whitelist management on par with competitor security products such as McAfee and Bit9.

  18. Integration with DISA STIGs and benchmarks

    SCCM should be able to leverage STIGs and benchmarks to automate the compliance. SCM appears to have ended support, although it can still be found. It was ok, but to use for SCCM required numerous steps and not all items would transfer.

  20. Decouple Detection and Remediation types

    When creating Configuration Items, it would be nice if we could combine different detection and remediation types. For example, combining a Registry detection rule that would remediate with a PowerShell script.
