  1. DCM - Expand the Compliance Rules so that they can return Values

    Expand the capabilities of the Compliance rules so that I can collect the Registry Value optionally.

    It’s great that we can tell if systems are compliant, but often we are Auditing Registry values and handing the data over to Security or other groups. Those other groups determine if the setting is compliant or not.

    Simply handing over a report that lists 10s of thousands of systems as not compliant is not enough...the next question that we are often asked is what are the Non-Compliant values.

    An additional check box to "Collect Values" would be very helpful and reduce allot of…

  2. 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.

  3. compliance items, add deployment tab to bottom pane

    on the compliance item, add deployments tab with the capability of creating collection from the compliance item. You can do it on the compliance baseline but that is not sufficient as a baseline may have more than 1 CI so your target collection *MAY* have a mix of issues. *OR* just make it where you can deploy a CI in addition to baseline with same capabilities

  4. Add auto remediation to a Software Update compliance baseline

    At present SU compliance baselines can identify missing updates but not remediate by installing them. Please add the option to have the missing updates installed either from a DP or Microsoft Update.

  5. DCM to check for audit settings

    Configuration Management needs the ability to check for Audit settings on a folder, much like it checks security settings.

    I know it can be done in powershell, but thats a very long and nasty road.

  6. Prompt users for reboot, but NEVER force it

    The reboot settings only allow for the user to postpone a reboot for up to 24 hours. Why can't we expand that time or just keep reminding them forever until they reboot themselves? The longer that they have been pending a reboot, remind (pester) them more frequently. Or auto reboot if nobody is logged on.

  7. Allow compliance items to be run at logon/logoff

    Right now, Compliance Items can only be scheduled for specific time periods. It would be helpful to schedule Compliance for logoff/logon.

  8. 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.

  9. Improve the usability of Compliance Settings

    When I first looked at Compliance Settings I could not get my head around how it worked. I believe I understand it now but it could be made easier.

    One useful feature would be the inclusion of using admx or existing GPOs to ensure AD compliance is working or apply settings over multiple domains / workgroup system. The Security Compliance Manager has some of these features but only for Microsoft related products with security configuration.

  10. 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 baseline…
