  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…

    • Run Scripts: Need cmdlets to support feature

      Create cmdlets for the new in console Powershell scripts. Some good ones would be new Script Deployment and get script results.

      EX:
      New-CMPSScriptDeployment -Name "Script Name" -CollectionName "Collection Name"

      • Run Scripts: Need ability to schedule execution

        Since version 1707 it's now possible to run Powershell scripts for a collection, but these scripts cannot be scheduled. It would be of real value if these Powershell scripts could be scheduled.

        • 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: Do not preserve parameters when scripts are re-run, and log parameter usage in Monitoring

            When using parameters, the last value used should be blanked out when run again. The value of parameters is the dynamics of it all. You can overwrite the value but seems it would be best servers to not retain the value after running. Would also be great if the parameter used was logged in the Script Status node for ease of tracking.

              • Export all data option for key nodes

                I would like the ability to right-click various nodes, eg packages, applications, task sequences, etc and export the data for that node to a file, eg csv which could easily be read back in via powershell. This would allow test environments to be set up quickly and might even help provide an a way to restore a production environment if all else fails...

                • Run Scripts: Ability to Edit Scripts

                  In 1706, once you create a script and approve it (or deny it) there is no way to alter the script except but to create a new one. Would be great to have the ability to set the script back to waiting for approval, which would unlock the code to be edited.

                        • Run Scripts: Show PowerShell Intellisense in script editor prompts

                          Now that we have the ability in TP1706 to upload and run PowerShell scripts against endpoints, it has exposed the need to be able to tab complete and validate syntax with intellisense from the console. I'm not asking you to recreate the PowerShell ISE/VSCode, just some rudimentary intellisense for when you are working on the Admin Console.

                            My customer has +_ 600 maintenance windows using the server grouping feature .

                            Feature Request Nr1 : They use the node drain / node resume feature with PowerShell. They are still modifying and changing the script almost every week . That script is used for those 600 collections :

                            a) a central repository/place to enter the script details and be able to reuse that for each server group collection like for power management custom templates .
                            b) If they make a change in the “central” PowerShell repository , it keeps history ( Like application revisions ) and replaces that automatically…

                                • Allow use if DeploymentID as identifier in Set-CMPackageDeployment and Set-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment

                                  Set-CMPackageDeployment and Set-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment do not allow DeploymentID as unique identifier. Instead you need to use e.g. programname and packageid.

                                  In the case of Set-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment this requires DeploymentName which is not even possible to retrieve from Get-CMDeployment

                                  Please, allow DeploymentID as an option to identifying the deployment in these cmdlets.

                                    • SCCM module cmdlet creation for folders

                                      The ConfigurationManager module does not have any *-folder cmdlets.

                                      I would like to see some created that allow for more folder manipulation within system centre configuration manager, for example Get-CMFolder -Name "Test" would provide me with the Folder ID, Name, Heirarchical Location in ConfigMgr and more!

                                      As well as New-CMFolder, Move-CMFolder, Remove-CMFolder, etc!

                                      I would also like to see the ability to add -Folder to other cmdlets, such as New-CMDeviceCollection -Name "Test" -Folder "TestFolder" so the collection called Test is made in the folder called TestFolder instead of the Device Collections root.
