  1. Add a priory order option to Compliance Items 'settings'.

    Add a priory order option to Compliance Items 'settings'. Currently you can have multiple settings but you don;t know in which order they process. if you have 'setting 1' dependent on 'setting 2' you can't specify the order in which they process. Same might go for Baselines but that not my current need.

  2. Deploy Application via Baseline Compliance

    Right now you can deploy a base line to see if system have all the require local apps. Would be nice if you allow the system to have remediation for the missing application, that is specify by the company. As of now the only thing you can have baseline auto fix is Registry value & Script (by running remediation script) & WQL Query. If it could auto and manually fix application that would be outstanding. I would allow it in these two ways, if the system detects it missing an app it auto deploys that package ID to itself (Checkā€¦

  3. Configuration Item Checkout

    When automating the creation of Configuration Items, every time a new setting is added the version increments. Depending on my input file, the revision could be in the upper hundreds, particularly when adding Windows Defender and Firewall exceptions.

    It would be nice to check out a configuration item, make the necessary edits, and then check in the changes.

  4. Separate the application dependancy from configuration item application detection method

    Currently when setting up a configuration item with application settings, you are able to point to an application in ConfigMgr to use for a detection method. The issue is that if you want to export and share the CI, the import fails is the application does not exist the COnfigMgr site. It would be better if it grabbed the detection method from the application but added that to the CI to be independent of the application. So instead of pointing to the application for the detection method, the method gets copied over (copy instead of pointer).

  5. Support "Any of" in addition of "All of" Options for String Arrays Compliance Rules

    Currently, the only value option for string arrays in a compliance rule is to specify that it must contain "All of" the specified values. I would like to be able to say that it should contain "Any of." Similar to how regular strings have "One of."

    Ideally, an "Any of" value would support any combination of any number of values in the list, but only values in the list.

  6. transcript

    I would like to turn off powershell transcripting in configuration item. If I run PS script in user mode (means "Run scripts by using the logged on user credentials" is enabled.) then it creates a folder under user's mydocuments folder. It is very annoying.

  7. Report on Local Admin Permissions

    For many years now Microsoft has strongly recommended that Local Admin Rights be removed. Would it be possible to have SCCM report on the contents of the Local Administrators group? Also, could we maybe have a wizard under Compliance Settings to configure these settings. I know Sherry Kissenger from MNSCUG has done a lot of work with this. Maybe the product team could pattern the solution after her work.

  8. devices compliance status on SUG - drill into non-compliant list/collection/query

    on the software update dashboard I want to monitor and pursue the non-compliant machines - I cannot see a way, as in other pie charts and other graphs in the various dashboards around the console, of drilling into the list of devices

  9. remember last registry location when creating CI

    When creating compliance settings for new applications I often like to grab settings from a known machine. It works well and pre-fills a lot of the rules for me, unlike manually entering the value.

    But I am fed up of having to re-navigate to the remote registry location I am grabbing these values from. Please please please can you get the console to remember the last registry location used when creating CIs?

    The same would be useful for file/folder paths too

  10. Add option for various actions based off CI status

    Configuration items has statuses of compliant, non-compliant, unknown, and error. It would be a nice expansion of the compliance settings feature to be able to act upon the individual CI status and not the just add to a collection based off baseline compliance.

    Actions that would be of benefit are:
    Add to collection
    Install individual software update or software update group
    Install package
    Install application
    Run task sequence
    Run script

  11. Folder Redirection Improvements to Permit OneDrive

    Currently the folder redirection feature in SCCM doesn't take an environmental variable as a good path; it requires \\SERVER\SHARE.

    With OneDrive being common place in Office 365, please allow us to enter a command such as:

    %userprofile%\<SyncFolder>

    where Sync folder is the name of your organization's onedrive folder.

    as documented by the Office team.

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/redirect-known-folders-to-onedrive-for-business-e1b3963c-7c6c-4694-9f2f-fb8005d9ef12

    So that we can use SCCM to manage this.

    Thanks! :)

  12. Custom Client settings for Compliance Scheduling

    There is no option currently to create a custom client settings for Compliance Scheduling for specific Compliance Baseline deployment.

    It would be great if we get an option.

  13. Improvements for Device Guard management

    1. Using the Microsoft knowledge base for Device Guard, I would like to create a new CI policy by using New-CIPolicy. Then, I want to merge it with the Configuration Manager Code Integrity policy (Merge-CIPolicy). This should be possible from the gui as well.
    2. Adding other trust rule methods via gui. (ie. PCACertificate, hash)
    3. Deploy device guard trusted installer policies via osd. This would allow policies to be active immediately after domain join and before any software is installed.
    4. This one is key but is heavily dependent on #2:
    a) Use case 1: An executive needs toā€¦

  14. Manual Remediation Option for Configuration Baselines

    I think it would be beneficial if there was a manual remediation option in the Configuration Manager applet, to let users manually run remediation steps. I know a Non-Compliant collection could be created and a application/package pushed to it, but I'd like the option to manually run a remediation step for Non-Compliant computers.

  16. There should be an option to select existing packages other then PS,VBS & JS scripts for Compliance remediation.

    There should be an option to select existing packages/application other then PS,VBS & JS scripts for Compliance remediation. most orgs just miss out some pcs and compliance is mainly used by many company's to get the software installed to the missing ones.

    We can create a collection for non compliant systems and deploy app/package to them manually, but giving an option in remediation option will make it easy/simple and user-friendly.

  17. Populate OS versions for "Valid operating system builds" in compliance policies

    In the new condition "Valid operating system build" added to Windows 10 (w/o CM) compliance policies it would be very useful to have a drop down with build version numbers translated to meaningful names. Otherwise we have to go external and find a version list. Even better if it could be pulled from the CM DB for existing versions in the same way you can with collection queries.

  18. Declare the CI settings better for iOS Kiosk Mode

    When I setup a Kiosk Configuration item, the Wizard show me, that I Am able to configure the Touch Screen. When I set it to dsiabled, the Touch Screen is working, on Enabled the Touch screen is not working.
    Or if you check the attached picture, with the Current Settings, the Volume Buttons are disabled on the Device.
    This is very misleading and should be corrected!

  20. Configuration Baseline: To execute in user context

    Currently Compliance Baseline can only run in System Context but it can't run in user context. Can we please have this feature in Configuration Baseline?
