  1. 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>

        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! :)

        • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • Fiding it difficult to find documentation on how to setup UE-V with SCCM and Windows 10, config item and baselines

                    I cant find the documentation on how to configure UE-V, Config item and Baselines with Windows 10 and SCCM. It all seems a bit fragmented. most of it relates to Windows 7.

                    1607-1 has the EU-V client build in and some templates on the clients but how do I set this up without using any group policies to set the template paths, and how do Baselines work.

                    • Bigger fonts in compliance / remediation scripting window

                      When writing scripts for compliance/remediation rules, the font size is tiny, with no way to adjust it. This makes finding critical marks such as closed quotes, very difficult. I realize copy and paste is available, but for quick one or two line powershell scripts, I really should be able to see what I am doing-- or at least have an option to resize the font.

                        • 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.

                          • compliance badge for client

                            When a user wants to know if their PC is 'compliant' then the Software Center 'compliance' tab confusingly doesn't relate to their actual compliance with software updates, its for an unused conditional access feature (or am I wrong and the only one confused by this.) users go to the compliance tab and think they are up to date. how can users know if they are patch 'compliant/?

                            • 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

                                • 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.

                                  • Allow use of Global Conditions in Configuration Items

                                    When you create a configuration item you can select "Supported Platforms" but why not also allow the use of "Global Conditions" so we can further restrict how the rule would be appeared?

                                    An example, I need to test for a hotfix being present on Windows 7 x86 & x64 machines but only need the update on laptops.

                                      • Allow upload of powershell scripts (not just the script block) as detection methods or Configuration Item scripts

                                        If we have AllSigned selected as a powershell execution policy either as a global gpo or via the client, any script blocks that are written for detection methods on applications or discovery/remediation for config items will fail since they "aren't signed". Organizations where execution policies are scoped as such aren't able to use these features when the configmgr client downloads the scripts to the staging area and scrambles the script name.

                                        • The ability to run a configuration baseline on a collection that has the baseline applied to a parent collection.

                                          Currently we have certain Baselines that are applied to our master collection of all computers in the organization. However, when we replace a lab we should be able to run that baseline without having to run it against the master collection.
