    • SDK Support for BoundaryGroupCache

      Introduce broad support/documentation for BoundaryGroupCache values in Root\CCM\LocationServices to be read programatically and leveraged in Compliance Settings and other areas for Location based configurations. Example: configuration of BITS Throttling settings based on current Boundary Group. Setting up Collections / Custom Client Settings is not performance efficient.

      • Automatic notification when the Docs are updated

        Trying to keep track of which topics in the Documentation Library have been changed and when is a nightmare.

        Provide a notification mechanism such as a RSS feed for updates to the Documentation Library as they occur.

        In an ideal world it would be great to be told WHAT the changes were (be good if there was a way of easily snapshotting the article before and after the changes with the changes highlighted), but not sure how easy that is.

          We have noted this request. At this time, I do not have an update to share, but we hear this request.

        • Custom Client Settings and Hardware Inventory Class setting Merge

          Custom Client Settings and Hardware Inventory Class Merge

          Request is to Add some more details to explain the behaviour with respect to multiple custom client setting and Hardware Inventory merge on this page.
          https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh301103.aspx

          if we could just mention, not checking a class in a custom client setting with highest priority doesn't mean the class would not be inventoried. Not checking a class doesn't mean disabled. it's like not configured. So if someone has to not inventory a particular class on most of the machine except few. Then they have to work around with disabling the class on default client…

          • Configuration Manager Wi-fi Profile deployment

            Intune wifi profiles deployment states that it is not possible to add proxy settings to anything else that iOS and Mac OS, as per : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/intune/deploy-use/wi-fi-connections-in-microsoft-intune . Same settings , not stated that this is not working for SCCM , even if in the backend it is the same feature. Could you please check and reflect the proper information on the Configuration manager documentation ?

            • Maintain an accurate and list of Site versions and associated Client versions

              With CM Current Branch implementations, customers will have more questions than ever about whether their clients are being upgraded to the proper version. There are ways to get at this data in the CM console, but sometimes there are gaps (hotfixes come to mind) and it would be great to have an authoritative resource to point customers to. This site (https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configmgrdogs/2014/02/07/configmgr-2012-version-numbers/) is great but it seems to be maintained by a field engineer. I think it would be more practical to make this data available on Technet or docs.microsoft.com. Also if it could have site version, build, and…

              • Improve documentation for OMS connector setup procedure

                If you walk through the documentation for setting up the OMS connector, the guide is a little vague, it covers the connection - assuming that all went perfect and connected with out a problem.
                I'm following the guides as outlined here ;<https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/log-analytics/log-analytics-sccm#provide-configuration-manager-with-permissions-to-oms>

                Step #3 > Step #4.. doesn't cover the scenario where the azure subscription drop-downs are blank.

                Step #4 simply says "If you accomplished all the other procedures successfully".. so what do you do when it doesn't ?

                It gives no indication on what to look for. I did find another guide from here <https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Configure-OMS-Connection-9c9e6bc3>,…
