  1. 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.

    • 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).

        • 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 (Check…

            • Apply CI/Baseline as an action on a failed compliance policy

              In tech-preview 1606 an awesome feature has been added that let's you take an action on a compliance policy if it is not met.

              What would be awesome would be the ability to apply a configuration item/baseline on the non compliant device.

              E.g. If an intune device such as iOS has a malicious threat installed (combined with the compliance setting maximum threat level an action to remediate the threat by applying a configuration item that completely locks down that device)

              See Suzanne Grant (Intune MSFT) for full scenario. Great work guys!

              • 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.

                • Add Applications to compliance baselines

                  I'd like to be able to report on compliance for Tier 1 apps using the same mechanism I use for other compliance settings. It would be a nice convenient way of showing Tier 1 apps coverage in a single report

                  • Run program from a package as a remediation step.

                    Today you have to ability to run JScript, Windows PowerShell or VBscript scripts to remediate condition on Clients in ConfigMgr. But sometimes runing a program from a package would also be a very useful. Example, run a reboot program like the Cortech Shutdown tool if computer/server is non-compliant.

                    • 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.

                      • Terms and Conditions - Down to the PC

                        We would like for users to have to agree to terms and conditions to use any of our domain machines, not just Intune machines. If the SCCM client could handle terms and conditions at the PC that would be great.

                        Something that checked to see if they had previously agreed. If not show the terms and conditions and agree button or log off button.

                        • List all CIs in a category regardless of folder

                          We use folders to organize Configuration Items (Applications, Task Sequences, etc.) however there is no place to view all the CIs in a category. You have to click on each individual folder to view those CIs. For example, it would be nice to select Applications and see all of your Apps listed there instead of having to select each folder to view Status or check for duplicates. Each folder should do the same for its sub-folders. Having a column that shows which folder/sub-folder the CI is in would be helpful as well.

                          • Needs Custom Text Subject Name Format

                            We currently have 4-5 option for Subject Name format while creating the Certificate Profile using SCEP. We want to add custom text to the subject line to indicate the particular device type that the user profile is on. For example, for a particular group of laptops we might want to include the text ‘DeviceTypeX’. Our VPN solution checks the certificate for this text and allows the user to access a different set of services.

                            • Make Configuration Item SETTINGS searchable from within the console

                              If you leverage the Microsoft Security Compliance Manager to import CI's based on GPO's, you end up with a lot of CI's labeled like:

                              Win10 Computer Security - Remote Access
                              Win10 Computer Security - Network Protection
                              Win10 Computer Security - Event Logging

                              Inside that are the actual settings that have been grouped together. It would be nice to make those settings themselves searchable (maybe the Name and Description fields?).

                              This would allow you to possibly search for and see where the same setting is being applied in multiple CI's. Or at a minimum, try and find the CI where you…

                              • 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

                                  • 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>

                                    So that we can use SCCM to manage this.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Bind Compliance Settings to A Boundary Group

                                          Now that CM caches boundary groups it would be good to be able to define some compliance settings / policy settings against a boundary group and to be able to apply these just as the cached boundary group data is updated.
