  1. Moving application between folders does not inherit security scope on folder.

    When moving applications to a different folder, the application should inherit the folder security scope. I have to manually modify the security scope for the moved application. This is on 1906 build.

  2. Allow for available applications to be made "persistent"

    Currently, an "available" application installed through the Software Center, will not be re-installed if the detection method for that application fails (for whatever reason) in the future

    There should be some way to set a "persistence" flag on an "Available" application such that it is similar to being "Required" after a successful install. The only way to make such an application not re-install is if the SCCM client removes it (whether pushed centrally, or by the user uninstalling from Software Center).

    Why would you want this? For a Required application, a scripted detection method designed to compare the local versionā€¦

  3. Copy Application detection rules

    It would be "nice to have" and a timesaver to be able to copy application detection rules from other applications. I should be placed next to "Add Clause", "Edit Clause" and "Delete Clause" in "Detection Method" tab.
    And also possible to copy Detection Method scripts from other applications.

  4. Ccmcache automatically deletes application install cache on detection of successful install

    Update the application installers so that we can opt to delete the install from ccmcache when it has been successfully installed.

  5. Program modernization

    It would be nice if programs were modernized to have some of the same features as applications. This would include being able to launch a PowerShell script without extra parameters, sharing the same requirements tab and categories section, being able to use a custom icon in Software Center, and having Windows Source Management. Maybe it would be easier to just allow applications that don't use detection methods? They obviously wouldn't be able to be used as dependencies or have supersedence. Other than that I think it could work.

  6. SCCM How to MIGRATE Applications from one VMware SCCM 2012 R2 Server that is dying to a New VM ConfigMan 2012 R2 Server

    I need to Move Applications or Migrate them from a dying VMware Server 2012 R2 to a newly built SCCM 2012 R2 VMware Server. Plain and simple, but no documentation is found.

  7. Central maintenance of custom exit codes required.

    Central maintenance of custom exit codes required.
    When using wrappers, exit / return codes must be entered in each application. This is too cumbersome and error-prone.

  8. Add Drillthrough to Office 365 Pilot and Health Dashboard

    Would like the ability to drill through to a list of devices in the Office 365 Pilot and Health Dashboard. For example, clicking the Recommended Pilot Devices bar would display the devices.

  9. Support detection scripts larger than 32KB for applications

    Can you increase the size for application script detection? There is currently a limit of 32KB for a PowerShell detection script. In a normal use-case a detection script would be 10 lines or less, but there are times when longer scripts can be necessary. My case in particular requires that I query device ID's on client computers. There can be thousands of unique device ID's that I may have to check, but this puts my script above the size limitation.

  10. Create a Program by Right-Clicking in Program List, present a drop down menu with actions

    After creating the initial program with the Create Program Wizard you should be able to right-click in the new list of programs (only 1 there initially) and get a drop down menu that has a "Create Program" item. This would avoid the extra mouse swipe to the ribbon to select that function, this would be more intuitive.

  11. Intergrat PowerShell App Deployment Toolkit in System Center Configuration Manager

    It would be nice to have the App Deployment Toolkit Intergrated When deploying software.

  12. Inconsistent feature support in different wizards

    By introducing new features or capabilities into CM not all wizards have been updated. That creates an inconsistent behavior. I tried to address that as bugs but was told this would be feature requests and must go to user voice.

    Software Update Group Deployment & Automatic Deployment Rules
    Software Update Groups can be deployed as available (we use this e.g. for the newest driver updates), but ADRs can only create Required deployments.

    Provisioned appx
    You can set on appx based applications ā€˜Provision this application for all users on the deviceā€™ and ā€˜Allow that application to be installed from the Installā€¦

  14. Have the Content Status link for a given application or package jump directly to that package's status

    Currently when viewing an Application or Package and selecting the "Content Status" link the console redirects to a list of all content, which an admin user must then navigate to find the package they just came from and finding it, click the "View Status" link for the highlighted content.

    Just skip the middle step and go directly to the specified content's status.

  15. Application Post deployment feature

    It would be beneficial to have a Post Installation feature for application deployment .
    For example If Application A and B are required however application B can only be installed after Application A. Understand Dependency can be used to achieve this however in case of inplace upgrade of Office it is advisable to remove the previous versions and then install the new version .
    A post installation feature can be useful for inplace office upgrade with all other products such as addins , Project visio can be post installed. This will considerably reduce the time for support
    Understand the workaroundā€¦

  16. Automate creation of Office 365 Application for new versions

    Go 1 step further with the new Office Customisation Service shown a Ignite. Currently the service allows admins to create a new application installer for x version of Office. Automate this!

    A common annoyance currently is that we have Office 365 packaged as an application in ConfigMgr. This application is apart of a Task Sequence to install Windows 10. At time of creation, the Office application is up to date. However, once the latest version of Office is released, this will result in the machine installing the old version during the TS, and then installing updates post build via whateverā€¦

  18. 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.

  19. Install Behavior not met not shown as Error in Monitoring

    The ability to use Install Behavior for Applications that an Executable must be closed is great.
    But in Monitoring the Application Deployment shows as an Error if the Executable was running when the Application tried to install itself. In the Error Description it states ā€œOne or more processes are running and prevent enforcement actionā€
    Why canā€™t it be shown under Requirements Not Met or a new Category but not as an Error? I donā€™t see it as an error and so a lot of Deployments show tons of Errors, that are not Errors, only because the Application is waiting forā€¦

  20. Detection using scripts shouldn't be mutually exclusive with other options

    Currently you can use the canned detection methods (file present, MSI package code present, etc) OR a script, but not both. It would be useful to have the option of using both together, so that if you need to evaluate based on file content (such as in a config file) you don't have to manually script standard application detection.
