  1. Uninstall ContentID missing from console

    In version 1802 and below the uninstall Content ID is not visible in the console. Only the Install Content ID is visible next to the DeploymentType. That makes i hard to troubleshoot. Would be nice if you could add another column for the Uninstall Content ID next to the Install Content ID.
    I wrote a littel script to extract the ID from the SDMPackageXML as a workaround. See attached.

    • Update asset management to include everything that is needed for license discussions (at least with Microsoft)

      MAP Toolkit is a good tool but why should we have to use it when Asset Management is available in Configuration Manager? I'd expect to see edition of SQL Server, BIOS info on Windows licensing, virtualization rights, etc. in ConfigMgr. Reports are needed that would show number of processors/cores in front of products that are licensed based on number of processors/cores.

      • Warranty Info

        Currently there are scripts out there that can get warranty information, but HP for example seem to change the layout of their site that you have to reconfigure the scripts. It would be nice if Microsoft worked with the various vendors to be able to consistently retrieve that data.

        • Asset Intelligence

          Two ideas -
          Have a methodology to integrate license entitlements from an Enterprise Agreement (or select agreement) into asset intelligence. Perhaps in addition, there could be a report showing licenses under an expired agreement that you are no longer entitled to use (ie. any subscription based license).

          Integration of the MAP toolset for license tracking purposes for licenses that are based on socket counts. For example, if you license the host for SQL Enterprise, there should be a way to roll up virtual instances to the host level to ensure compliance and report on them inside Asset intelligence. Assuming this…

          • Delete multiple expired Client Operations

            I would love to be able to select all expired Client operations and be able to delete them all at once..

            Now we have to select one by one and delete them.

              • Add Software Metering information to Data warehouse

                Ability to add Software Metering Data to the Data warehouse. This will allow potentially up to three years of trends of application usage that would help greatly with re-ups of applications.

                • True metering of an Application, but not an exe

                  Excellent work in adding new features in SCCM 2012.
                  Current model of metering thru exe, though works to an extent, it has flaws and doesn't offer needed confidence or trust to business about actual metering of an application as its limited to an exe. If possible, I request Microsoft to research on allowing SCCM admin to select an application, in backend SCCM converts that to all related exe for metering on clients and then monitor only installed application of those group of exe. Its note easy and throw some challenges but I trust and for experts at MS, nothing is…

                  • Asset Intelligence for hardware requirements

                    Under Asset Intelligence for hardware requirements can you add TPM? with Cred Guard, Device Guard, BitLocker and other new features coming from Microsoft this would be a nice check to have built-in.

                          • Remove the SMS_Unit qualifier for classes like v_gs_partition, as inventoried from win32_diskpartition

                            Classes like v_gs_partition, as inventoried from win32_diskpartition may use a definition such as SMS_Unit ("KiloBytes") for certain properties.
                            Block size for instance will then be reported as 0 even if there is an value like 512 hence all devices may report incorrectly 0 as block size.
                            Removing the SMS_Unit for all those properties resolves that issue.
                            The same also happens for e.g. win32_volume.

                            • OEM Windows license for use in TS, collections and reports

                              It would be great if we could check the OEM Windows license in the UEFI for asset management, OS Deployment and reports.
                              My scenario is thousands of computers with OEM licenses comprising all from Windows Vista to Windows 10.
                              To help the deployment of Windows 10 in the company we have bought hundreds of Windows 10 licenses.
                              Therefore, we have to maintain a list of these licenses and the computers they are given to.
                              I have a task sequence that checks the OEM license for Windows 10 in the UEFI and in a SQL database and then selects to install…

                                • Add some usefullness to the Asset Intelligence

                                  Provide some usefulness to create reports, pull uninstall information, possibly allow a simple right-click create uninstall package from software in the Inventoried Software List. Currently this is a mostly useless item as all it does is show the install count, does not even list the devices that have something installed.

                                  • Software-Inventory: Click on the Software to see where it is installed

                                    It would be nice to double-click on a inventoried Software to see on which Clients this Software is installed.

                                    • Make it easier to get Hardware and Software Inventory

                                      It should be much easier for getting inventory of hardware and software. There are so many good inventory tools out there and SCCM just fail on that part.

                                      • more granular control over client settings

                                        Would it be possible to add more granular control over client settings, for example by incorporating a GPO style Enabled, Disabled, Not Configured function. I particularly find multiple deployments of Computer Agent settings fiddly. Its not the end of the world, its just a bit clunky.

                                        • Possibility to add custom wmi classes

                                          Part of the functionality seems to already be in the system, when adding a new Hardware inventory class. The point being the custom class(es) should be replicated to all providers, included in the database, and backed up when running the built-in backup task. This is useful when extending the console and striving for full integration, including the possibility to save settings and configurations.
