  1. Right click a device to create a Device Collection based on its properties

    Allow a Right Click option on a single device to access the properties of that device (e.g, OS version, hardware type, installed software) and then select certain properties to automatically create a Device Collection based on those properties.

    It would build a SQL query as would happen when you create a Collection today, but to have Config Manager fill in the bits you don't know would be great.

    Like do I need OSVersion.Caption or .BuildNumber or .whatever? I just could pull the properties straight out of an existing device.

  3. Show the collections a device is a member of

    Hello,

    I would also like you to put in the columns the collection option where when I do a search of a machine the information you give me is using but does not tell me which collection this machine would facilitate much information search

  4. Assets and compliance

    In the Devices area can a column for the primary users email address from Active Directory or AAD be added and perhaps optionlly be able to add other AD or AAD user attributes.

  5. Make it possible to copy a single collection multiple times, instead of just once per click.

    When building out collections for whatever reason, you can presently only copy a collection by right-clicking and hitting copy, which creates a single copy of the collection. If you need, for example, 21 copies of the same collection, you have to go through that process 21 times. It'd be nice if there was an option in the context menu to select how many copies to make.

  6. Ability to create collections either as WMI(WQL) or SQL based.

    Back in the day Altiris had this ability to create collections based on SQL queries. I think this would be great as the provider in some cases work more effictiently and not need to do a translation if the query was already native. Not saying to get rid of WQL, but have the option to select sql based query and a text box to type or paste the SQL query.

  7. Ability to run a collection sync automatically after a the limiting collection sync

    As it is possible to run ADRs after running a SUP sync, it should be possible to do it with collections.

    E.g.: you have a collection named "Workstations" and a collection named "Workstations | Windows 10". Instead of planning your schedule to sync first the "Workstations" and only after the "Workstations | Windows 10", there should be an option like "Run sync after sync of limiting collection". This assures that the collection gets updates after the first one is correctly updated.

  8. Allow ability to exclude systems from collections without having to add systems to a collection and then exclude that collection

    When creating a collection it would be nice to be able to exclude a system without having to add that system to another collection and then exclude that newly created collection. Something like a Direct Exclude Rule

  10. v_gs_environment AND variablevalue0

    SCCM SQL View vGSEnvironment.VariableValue0 is a 255 length nvarchar.

    We inventory PATH variables with this. 255 is not long enough to grab the entire value. Can this be increased?

  11. Server Groups - Increase Length of Drain and Resume Scripts

    The drain and resume scripts are currently limited to 512 characters each. I know there is currently a request to add native cluster aware patching support, but it would be a great start to simply increase the size limit of the scripts. It doesn't seem like there is a safe way to "drain" a server from a cluster to prep it for patching in a mere 512 characters, especially considering that we have to use up some of those characters to return the correct exit code.

    We can run some pretty complex and lengthy scripts in configuration items and baselines,ā€¦

  12. Create a collection from search results

    When you create a search, for instance within a collection, it would be great if you had the option to save that search/criteria as a new collection. I know you can save the search itself to run again, but sometimes you may need this to be a collection for deployments or something.

  13. Server Groups - Run As Option

    There are times when the drain and resume scripts may need to run as an account other than the local system account of the server. We often support "clustered" servers that rely on a clustering method or data outside of Windows fail-over clustering (Exchange being a good example, but not the only use-case).
    It would be nice to specify a run-as account for these scripts in order to reach out to external systems using a service account in order to authenticate to those systems for any required health checks prior to patching (drain script) or after patching (resume script). Weā€¦

  14. Include Right Click Option to delete from multiple Roles

    When right clicking a Device Collection or just a Computer Name in SCCM can you add the option of deleting not just from the SCCM Console but from AD and WSUS? One click option to delete from all 3 areas at the same time? This would help alot managing assets and cleanup.

  15. Collection protection from deletion

    I would like to see some kind of protection from accidentally deletion.
    Sometimes I find myself accidentally deleting folder or collections which I did not want to delete.
    Just like in Active Directory OU there is a protection for this.

  16. Collection alerts based on membership change

    It would be nice if we could alert on any sort of collection membership change, whether it be a new device is added to the collection or if one is removed.

  18. Provide ability to define default settings for Collections

    Wouldn't it be nice to have like a "Template" which is used when the Create Collection wizard runs. The template for example could have prefix (like SD - for sofware distribution), a default Collection Update interval, the abiltiy to disable incremental updates when used etc...

  19. free disk space percent available in WQL

    Please create a field and store the free disk as a percentage of the volume size that can be used as a collection query. This will be helpful when trying to find systems that are at risk. With so many types of computer and so many sizes of hard drives, a static amount of disk space available isn't always as telling as a percent can sometimes be.

    The main reason for the ask is we're considering peer cache and want a way to "disable" peer cache if the percent of disk space falls below "x" percent and there doesn't seemā€¦

  20. Fix include membership rules so that they properly automatically replicate collection membership changes based on incremental updates

    As we discovered via premier call (ticket #:16602356). If you use an include or exclude collection rule it is supposed to automatically update the collection membership of the including collection if the included collection membership changes.

    It does this properly if your included collection membership changes due to direct memberships or queries if using a full collection schedule. It also works if you trigger a manual collection update of the included collection or the including collection.

    However it does NOT work if your included collection uses solely incremental collection updating. The included collection membership changes itself just fine, however theā€¦
