  1. Revamp ConfigMgr's cluster patching, and remove it from PreRelease

    Cluster patching feature was added in #SCCM CB 1602, but has been in prelease for a long time. It needs to:
    1) Have improved/revamped UI
    2) Remove dependency on collections
    3) Orchestrate patching for any machines, not just servers/clusters
    4) Remove the feature from prerelease

  2. Make ConfigMgr work with Autopilot and Enrollment Status Page (ESP)

    When deploying a device using Autopilot, the Enrollment Status Page (ESP) is used to prevent access to the desktop until the device provisioning tasks are complete. But ConfigMgr doesn't integrate with the ESP, so there's no way to wait for packages, apps, or task sequences - the user doesn't know when the process is done. Add that integration.

  3. Allow custom icons in software center for Task Sequences

    Split this item from a bigger umbrella item.
    This is to specify an icon per App Task Sequence in the Software Center.

  4. Install Servicing Stack Updates Before Other Updates

    Currently, when servicing stack updates and regular updates are deployed in the same software update group, the patches do not apply in a determinant order. This leads to cases where a cumulative update that requires a new servicing stack is installed before the servicing stack itself.

    While this can be worked around by separately deploying the servicing stack update before updates that require said servicing stack, it would be much more convenient if the update installation process checked if there are any servicing stack updates to be deployed and automatically installed them first

  5. Extend the default Hardware Inventory to include Windows Setup/Upgrade related registry values

    There are several registry keys which contain information about the currently installed Operating System as well as Installation/Upgrade history/errors/status information. These keys provide a valuable source of information that could be used for building reports/collections related to OS Deployment. One of the major barriers mentioned for not deploying Windows 10 Feature Updates from Windows 10 Servicing in the console is the lack of visibility/reporting available. Adding these registry keys to the default hardware inventory included in SCCM instead of having to customize inventory would make it easier to share reports/scripts/etc related to this data and could likely be built so…

  8. Add 80072ee2 as a default code to the WSUS Scan Retry Error Codes

    If a SUP/WSUS server is offline or in a disaster situation, clients should be allowed to failover to another SUP.

    Currently if a SUP goes offline, clients simply will never scan again, and this is not an ideal situation.

  9. Remote Control: Improve Multi-Monitor Experience

    Business Case (I know how you PMs love these):
    The current CB 1902 implementation is going to make this conversation part of our helpdesk script:
    “What screen is the app on?”
    “Can you move that window to the monitor where X is showing?”
    “No, not that one.”
    “Nope, still don’t’ see it”
    “Ok let me reconnect in full screen, please accept the prompt again.”
    “No no no, don’t hang up the phone, that’s not how this works.”
    “Ok, you should see a prompt to allow me to connect.”
    “Nope it’s there, trust me.”
    “Got it, thanks. Ok, let me move…

  10. Remote Control - Initiate a Wake-Up if client turned off

    When remote controlling a device it would be great if a prompt could come up and ask if you want to wake-up the device either using Wake-On-LAN or Wake-Up in client notification based on site configuration if the client is turned off..

  11. Warning message for high-impact collection changes

    When I started working with SCCM years ago I was told that you're not really an SCCM admin until you accidently deployed MS Office to the whole company. Through my years of working with SCCM I've seen many people update a collection not knowing that there was a mandatory deployment attached which resulted in the deployment getting sent to systems that were not intended.
    I would like to see a check/notification box added when a query based collection is updated that reminds you of the required deployments attached. This message will only show if an unexpired required advertisement is still…

  12. A standalone app for "Install Application" feature

    ConfigMgr 1906 has a great new feature to initiate immediate application installation with "Install Application" feature.

    It would be really helpful if there were a standalone app just for "Install Application" feature. Then helpdesk persons could approve/deny the application installations with much simpler tool than full ConfigMgr console.

  13. Change color scheme in the SCCM console

    When working with multiple customers and/or in migration scenarios (and also in lab- technical preview environments) it would be great to be able change the color scheme in the ConfigMgr console to clarify which environment the console belongs to.

  14. Create collections per deployment results

    It will be very suitable if new collections could be created per deployment results, e.g. create collection based on "failed" status in deployment

  15. Add Boundary Group Selection to SUP Creation Process

    It has become a semi-regular occurrence in the various communities that someone has created a new environment or rebuilt their SUPs and suddenly none of their clients updates are managed by ConfigMgr and they're getting updates direct from Microsoft.

    Often the root cause is that they did not add the new SUP to any boundary groups. It's an additional step that users just need to kinda of magically know ahead of time to do. Which is to say people aren't going to know and find out the hard way.

    Let's solve this somehow. For me, making boundary group selection part…

  17. Pre and Post actions during patching

    We have a need to run a scripted action [i.e. Ability to run one or more .ps1 Powershell scripts/vbscripts/batch files/cmd files] both before patching and after patching on specific machines that receive a SUG deployment.

    These actions can be for a variety of reasons:

    • Reboots before patching
    • Stopping services or other applications processes
    • Read server state and making sure it is set correctly after patching is finished

    Currently we reboot 90% of our fleet before running patching to make sure system memory (we check memory?) etc. are clean, to allow the best possible patching result.
    We have…

  18. Ability to use custom SSRS roles with config manager reporting

    Currently there are two default configuration manager managed roles in ssrs: configmgr report users, configmgr report administrators. Both of these roles are managed by SCCM and you wont have an ability to modify any of the role permissions as SCCM will overwrite those. I would like to give users a bit more permissions by giving the administrators bit more flexibility to modify the default role permissions or an option to create a custom role in SSRS with the permission to do customization and map that role to the users through SCCM.

    For me i need to remove "manage individual subscription"…

  19. Support User-Space Application Configuration for All Users of Device

    When installing an application there is frequently a system-space component (the main install) requiring admin/system level access and a user-space component (usually configuration or licensing). Less frequently but frequent enough is that all existing users and any new users that log into the device need those user-space components. Currently there is no good, supported, method for doing so. Admins are forced to use either Active Setup (unsupported and recently broken by Win 10 IPUs), Group Policy Preferences (messy, poor targeting, and very non-obvious separation of app logic), or roll their own (login script that does a bunch of custom stuff).

  20. Maintenance window recurrence pattern offset from a base day

    Allow the recurrence pattern for maintenance windows to be scheduled with an offset from a base day.

    Meaning, if we want a maintenance window on the Wednesday following the Second Tuesday of every month, we could configure a maintenance window for the Second Tuesday with a +1 offset.

    (This would be similar to the offset option added to ADRs in 1802.)
