  1. Respect user communication preferences

    I updated my Microsoft communication preferences to stop all the emails from the ConfigMgr team as I could. I still get survey requests and such. Please stop spamming me.

  2. ability to apply security scopes to deployments

    would be great if we could set security scopes on deployments. we offer sccm as a service to multiple groups using RBA. one group provides applications that can be viewed by all other groups. unfortunately they cannot see all of the deployments made from these applications as they only have visibility to their own devices/collections.

  3. RBA Role Prompt when launching console

    Many of the other System Center products allow a single user account to have many different roles assigned, and instead of merging them like Configuration Manager does, they prompt at login which role should be applied. This allows an admin for example, to have one account that they can manage all workstations, but then reopen the same console and choose a different role to manage all servers. This would solve many issues that come up when dealing with scoping issues where an object that was created do not have the correct scopes applied. It will also address a concern thatā€¦

  4. Create JEA templates for diffrent SCCM roles

    Just Enough Administrator (JEA https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn896648.aspx) is something that would increase security and enable support personell to troubleshoot SCCM on clients/server without giving them full administrator rights.

    Maybe you could provide JEA templates that match the diffrent RBAC roles in SCCM.

    For example a JEA Patch Admin template could allow the following:
    - Read SCCM logs
    - Read Windowsupdate.log
    - Restart the Windows Update service
    - Read WMI related to Updates
    - and so on.

    Providing templates like this would simplify the process of getting started with JEA. It would be even better if MS could provide templates for otherā€¦

  5. Move RBAViewer into the console

    RBA Viewer has been overlooked for too long and offers a lot of great features over the admin console. Why not combine the features into the console?

  6. Include the Reports Viewer Role out of the box

    Why not automatically include a reports viewer security role out of the box with CM? As a consultant I install CM from scratch regularly and always have to add this role manually as every customer wants it.

    Brian Mason and Kent Agerlund give examples here:

  7. Create a new option in RBAC that disallows a user from modifying ONLY a maintenance window, but allows for other device collection changes.

    Currently if you disable the modification of settings in a device collection through RBAC, you cannot modify ANY settings. I wish there was a way to only disallow the modification of Maintenance Windows.

  8. Set Security Scopes for MAM Policy

    Application Management Policies can't be scoped by Security Scopes in RBA. There's multiple team that manage MAM policies and we don't want to show all MAM policies to both teams. Having the ability to set security scopes will restrict the chance of major consequences and security issue.
    Thanks

  9. Elevated Access - Delete Collections

    Full Administrators should have the ability to delete collections no matter what roles are assigned. Currently in our environment we have multiple roles that have access to various collections and once a collection is created it cannot be deleted unless it is removed from a large number of roles.

    Request to have the ability to delete with confirmation, this will remove the collection (if empty) no matter what assignments are set on it.

  11. Pin Configuration Manager client properties box to taskbar

    It would be really nice to be able to pin the properties box to the taskbar to get to it quicker. As it is now in the taskbar, I can only right click and close the window.
