  1. Separate install and uninstall requirements

    Application requirements are set to make sure the install routine completes successfully, for example enough free disk space, minimum RAM, etc. These requirements are not the same for running the uninstall routine successfully.

    Consider an application requires 10GB hard disk space to install. It is installed successfully. Later, free hard disk space drops below 10GB so the application is hidden in Software Center. The user cannot now uninstall the application using Software Center.

  2. Application Group Reference

    We need the ability to easily see which application is included in which application group.

    This could be done similar to dependency references in the "References" tab of the application.

  3. Application dependency to upgraded application

    Application dependency is causing issues in the following scenario.

    "MainApp Addon 1.0" has a dependency on either "MainApp 1.0" or "MainApp 1.1".
    MainApp 1.1 superseeds MainApp 1.0 with uninstall checkbox.
    Both "MainApp 1.0" and "MainApp Addon 1.0" is installed on computer.
    When trying to update "MainApp 1.0" to "MainApp 1.1" the log "AppIntentEval.log" will spit out errors and app upgrade will not occur.

    Also new computers will have issues trying to install "MainApp 1.0" and "MainApp Addon 1.0".

    This can cause issues in upgrade scenarios of application and workarounds that needs to be created.

  4. Better Integration with AppV AutoCleanUp

    At present, if an AppV has been only published to one user, or globally for the machine, and the AppV setting 'AutoCleanUp' has been enabled, when the AppV is removed it is 'Unpublished' by the CCM client but removed by the 'AutoCleanUp' process meaning the subsequent 'Removal' command from the CCM client fails and Software Center hence reports the removal as a Fail.

    This needs to be addressed.

  6. Windows Application Packager (WinGet) Integration

    I would like configmgr to integrate with winget.

    https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/windows-package-manager-preview/

    Please allow me to simply tell winget to install/uninstall an application and allow sccm to monitor the result codes. Provide winget as a part of the sccm client install. Reduce my work effort to deploy applications!

    This should be a native deployment type as well. Let sccm ingest all the possible applications winget supports!

    Allow application content to be stored via Microsoft Connected Cache!

  7. Uninstall Failed - Rule is in Conflict, Show Conflicting Deployment

    Currently, we are in the process of cleaning up installed applications. We have been seeing rule is in conflict of other rules more frequently. On the Deployment view we see More Detail including the conflicting application, which is the application we are trying to remove. That application has no other deployments than the uninstall. Unfortunately it does not show the deployment that is causing this behavior. I'm aware you can not have available or required (install) deployments, however this goes beyond that.

  8. Edge Deployment wizard add new option "Remove Desktop Icon"

    Add an option to the builtin Edge deployment Wizard in the console so we can choose to create the desktop icon or not.

  9. Add "Remove Application" task to a task sequence

    There is a "Install Software" option in the drop down list when one creates a task sequence. It will be nice if there is also a "Remove Software" option in the drop down list too. While it is possible to just deploy to uninstall just one MSI application, it will be nice if one can uninstall multiple MSI application in a task sequence.

  10. Detection method scripts should run with -File

    Currently, application detection method scripts are ran in such a way that it causes issues with certain levels of PowerShell Constrained Language Mode. An example of how scripts are run is below.

    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\PowerShell.exe" -NoLogo -Noninteractive -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass "& 'C:\WINDOWS\CCM\SystemTemp\11a53fac-8144-438e-aa01-6d2378be848b.ps1'"

    To better allow detection method scripts to be ran under Constrained Language mode, the script should be ran with -File instead of with the call operator &.

    With the current configuration it is not possible to use PowerShell based detection methods in some scenarios, reducing their usefulness.

    See this idea for more info. https://ideas.patchmypc.com/ideas/PATCHMYPC-I-440

  11. Web application shortcut location

    When creating a web application, it would be great if we could choose the location it appears rather than just the program menu.

  12. Add an owner attribute to Task Sequences, Applications and Packages.

    We manage over 300 applications, and would like for SCCM reporting to list whoi is "responsible" for it.

    With that can you add an owner attribute to Task Sequences, Applications and Packages.

    Thank you

  13. Add the ability to set an Error threshold for Phased Deployments

    I would like to be able to create a threshold on Phased Deployments so that the deployment would automatically stop if it hits that threshold. Ideally this could be either a count or a percentage selected. The behavior I would want is for the deployment to go into a paused state if the error limit is hit.

  14. Allow 'Automatically upgrade any superseded version of this application' to be configurable for required deployments

    Allow 'Automatically upgrade any superseded version of this application' to be configurable for required deployments. Just like what was done for Available deployments.

  15. Deploy and Update VSCode natively

    Similar to how you integrated Edge deployment and maintenance into CM, could you do the same for VSCode?

    Pretty much the same as this, but for vscode

  16. Ability to add the application groups in Task Sequence

    Application groups can be deployed to a collection but cannot be added in a Task Sequence and then deployed. Please enable the Task Sequence deployment for Application Groups.

  17. Only on specified client platforms filter on bit version

    For many package programs I have to make two different programs one for 32 bit and another for 64 bit. Currently I have to run down the list and select the 10x 32 bit OSs and the 10x 64 bit options manually. It would be easier if we could do a one click per bit version of the OSs.

  20. Block servers from getting non-update deployments

    Be able to block Servers from getting OS Deployment Task Sequence, and Applications. Only let say manage Software Updates for Servers. Much more secure
