  3. User centric application deployment with dependencies requiring elevation

    If we talk about modern management, we deploy applications to user collections. In that case detection method PowerShell scripts are executed in user context and not System. This behavior is inherited to dependencies, but the dependencies may require elevation.
    E.g., if you want to deploy a Microsoft Store based Linux distribution via CM to users, you need to install the Microsoft Windows Subsystem Linux first. The detection for WSL in PowerShell is ā€œ(Get-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux).Stateā€, but it requires Elevation.
    In you create an appx-based Linux Distribution application with the WSL application as Dependency it fails if it is deployedā€¦

  4. Support wake up clients via wireless networks (WoWLAN)

    It would be great if ConfigMgr would support waking up clients which are connected to wireless networks and support wake on WLAN (WoWLAN) (in all scenarios where ConfigMgr todays supports already WoLAN). I heard rumors that this works already today (?) because the same kind of wake up packages are used by WoLAN and WoWLAN (?) but this scenario is at least still documented as unsupported, see

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/clients/deploy/plan/plan-wake-up-clients

    I would appreciate a hint if this might work really already today. My customer would love to evaluate/use it today.

  8. Migrate approval requests between applications

    Problem: When an application has "require approval" enabled we get a long list of users or devices where this application is approved for. But when I add a new application and delete the old, I loose all approvals! And the users need to request again.

    This is a problem in multiple cases:
    1) Example 1: We have an application in version 1.0.1 that and get a new version 1.0.2 I want to make a new application and test this. When it is tested I want to turn on "superceede" and then remove the old application. The license is still validā€¦

  9. Improvement of Application Delete check

    When you want to delete an application, here are the checks that is done :

    1.Number of dependent applications
    2.Number of active deployments
    3.Number of dependent task sequences
    4.Number of virtual environments
    5.number of settings

    That's is all good, but one point has been forgotten: Supersedence.

    Currently it is possible to delete an application even it is in supersedence chain. Which is not very good. If you let an applications in supersedece chain to get delete then in supersedece tab you have something like :

    ScopeId_xxxxxx/Application_xxxx

    And this confuses the client when it comes to install this application.

    Would beā€¦

  10. merge source with update

    Servicing mode of Any package or application that are created like
    O365 Client to be patched or update thru an Software update that will modified the content (slipstream) with the latest version .
    like this we can use into an TS or any new Advertisement with the correct source uptodate.
    And spare bandwith and deployment time for be ready on User side (not creating an initial deployment that will be patched after by and Software update one) to achive the result of end user side to have the latest one.

  11. Allow dependency to not run if parent is already detected

    Add a checkbox to Deployment Type Dependency that will "Allow dependency to not run if the parent is already detected".

    In other words, if the parent Application is deployed to a client, but the parent App Detection is already satisfied (it's already installed), do not install the dependency app if the option is checked.

    This would be most useful in short-circuiting long dependency chains, where you don't need to install any prereqs for a dependency app because it is already installed.

  12. Pass Return Code Across Dependent Applications

    When installing an Application with dependencies, the ability to capture the dependent Apps return code and then perform a set of actions (run a custom script, additional child dependency, etc.) or have a series of extra settings that can be configured (wait until reboot/logon/additional action complete), would be very helpful.

    For example: AppA has a dependency that will require a reboot but it must be initiated by the user. The ability for the primary App to get that return code and then "Hold until reboot" would be very helpful.

  13. More robust control of system restart

    Now we have only two parameters for Restart behavior: time to show the first warning and time to show the 'always on top' notification. It would be better if we can configure some user-controllable options. E.g. possibility to postpone a reboot.

  14. Detection method comments

    Add a field for adding a note in detection methods. When you have a large list of detections it would be easier to update for changes if I knew what reason I put in for each detection.

  16. Add data access/distribution settings options to app/package creation

    It would be great to have the ability to check the appropriate data access/distribution setting options from the get-go rather than having to go into the properties of each app/package and checking the appropriate boxes. Just having the options available when you create the app/package would save time.

  17. Program

    A workflow system (tab) for handling application/package errors (i.e non-zero return codes) for example; I should be able to config a setting of if the package/program gets an exit code of 1025 then handle it particular way or reboot try again 1 more time.

    Suggested options could be
    - Reboot device, try again 1 more time (great for 1025 errors)
    - E-mail support team X on X failure
    - Execute package 'PackageID/ProgramID' then attempt 1 more time (great for clean up scripts)
    - Add to collection X on Y error.

  18. dynamic application install fails if an app fails

    I have made a "function" that searches the SQL-database for applications which the computer will see as required in Software Center once installed. With the resulting list I create the variable needed to install these in the step "Install Applications" with the option "Install Application according to dynamic variable list".
    With the option "If an application installation fails, continue installing other applications in the list" selected i see that the step fails to execute if an application does not have "Allow this application to be installed from the 'Install Application' task sequence action without being deployed".
    The execution of theā€¦

  19. Add uninstall content path to the Create Deployment Type wizard

    Currently, in the New Deployment Type wizard, you can only specify a single content source. Now that we can have separate content source folders for uninstall, we have to create our deployment types without specifying this then edit the deployment type and add the second content folder. Please add the content options from the deployment type properties to the initial wizard.

  20. Detection rule use application source files

    Sometimes you need to run an executable to detemine if the application is installed or not. For example: setup.exe /listinstalled.
    today it is not possible to access the content location (mostly the cache directory) of the application.
    Is it possible to allow access to the content location of the application in the detection rule?
