  1. PowerShell CmdLets: Improvement for Software Update Maintenance

    Paging Adam Meltzer.
    I’ve spent the last couple of weeks writing a PowerShell script to provide end-to-end maintenance of software updates. My goal was to use the CM cmdlets as much as possible. While I think I have everything working the experience leads me to make the suggestions below. In all honestly; maybe I’m just doing it wrong and there is a way to do the things I couldn’t figure out.
    The documentation for Get-CMSoftwareUpdateDeploymentPackage says that it returns a CMSoftwareUpdateDeploymentPackage object but it’s actually returning WqlResultObjectBase. Maybe I’m just supposed to cast it but I failed trying.

    I could…

          • Add NumberOfDependedDTs property to Get-CMApplication

            Currently, the only place to see NumberOfDependedDTs is from Get-CMDeploymentType. Other properties like NumberOfDependentDTs and NumberOfDependentTS have been propagated to the Application Level, it would be useful to have NumberOfDependedDTs too.

                • Run Scripts feature should support other scripting types (VBScript, Perl, etc)

                  It would be awesome if more languages were supported for real-time Script deployment in addition to PowerShell. Maybe VBscript, Perl or Javascript, etc.

                  • Set-CMAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment to include missing AllowWUMU and AllowUseMeteredNetwork

                    Although you can now add multiple deployments to a single Automatic Deployment Rule there a couple of options that can be read but not set. These are:

                    "If software updates are not available on the distribution point in current, neighbor or site boundary groups, download content from Microsoft Updates."
                    and
                    "All clients on a metered internet connection to download content after the installation deadline, which might incur additional costs"

                    I can successfully retrieve all Deployments associated with an Automatic Deployment Rule via the Get-CMAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment cmdlet and see the current settings for these properties by parsing the DeploymentTemplate XML.

                        • Get-CMDetectionClause

                          Could we have a get-cmdetectionclause command? I'd like to be able to get an existing detection clause for a deployment which would be useful for not only managing existing detection clauses but being able to explore and re-using them for other applications.

                          As it is right now I use get-cmapplication | get-cmdeploymenttype | select SDMPackageXML in order to view the detection method as XML.

                            • Run Scripts: Prevent Script feature from sending all (i.e. optional) parameters

                              What I've noticed when using the new "Scripts" feature is that SCCM runs scripts with a very specific command format/syntax when calling a PowerShell script. Part of that is explicitly specifying every individual script parameter, regardless of whether it is mandatory.

                              I suppose that normally, this shouldn't be a problem, but besides being unnecessary and against the spirit of optional parameters, I've also been running into what I assume is a bug, where SCCM fails to properly pass all parameters. There seems to be a parameter limit, or more likely, a character limit to the command line SCCM runs on…

                              • Import/Export Cmdlet Parameter aliases

                                Could we please have a common alias for the file path parameters in the various import/export cmdlets?

                                For example, currently we have:
                                1. Export-CMBaseline uses -Path to set output path, and
                                2. Export-CMTaskSequence uses -ExportFilePath.

                                Then we have:
                                1. Import-CMBaseline using -FileName to determine location of exported files
                                2. Import-CMApplication using -FilePath,
                                3. Import-CMTasksequence using -Path.

                                A common alias like "Path" or "FilePath" for all these parameters will be very handy in reducing complexity of scripts calling your Cmdlets.

                                  • Run Scripts: Should be able to invoke from Deployment Status Node

                                    Run scripts brought a brand new model to handle client troubleshooting, but it can run from collections only.
                                    it would have been super useful to be able to run it on a machine\category from the Deployment Status node and then maintain clients with in progress \ unknown \ active \ inactive state.
                                    today when we have a list of computers who didn't report their status we need to manually create a collection with these clients to run a scripts and there's not even a built-in way to create a collection from the asset details

                                    • MVP-Powershell for Adding EP collection to dashboard (UpdateVisibilityInEPDashBoard)

                                      add-CMCollectionToDashboard and Remove-CMCollectionFromDashboard would be great addition to the existing powershell so the UpdateVisibilityInEPDashBoard WMI method would not be required anymore

                                      • Ability to run scripts from the SCCM server, like a built in Web Service

                                        Adding the ability to run powershell scripts on a SCCM site server when called from a Task Sequence or Compliance item.

                                        Some scripts need special rights or modules that are not available to Users or client devices. (ActiveDirectory, ConfigManager actions)

                                        Being able to add these scripts in the SCCM console and have them ran from a call back from the client or Task Sequence would save running multiple Web Services on the server.

                                        • PowerShell Cmdlet to collections & deployments for a computer

                                          Would be good to have a PowerShell CmdLet to get information on all collections and deployment for a computer is listed for.
