  1. Extend the downloadable time of the peer cache source.

    There is a 24 hour time limit for a PeerCache client to download from a Peercache source.
    When distributing large files, the token may expire and the download may not complete.
    we expect to extend the 24-hour constraint. (For example, 1week.)

  2. Use a fixed-width font (like consolas) for better script readability in ConfigMgr in all text-boxes where you type or paste scripts

    There are several areas in the Configuration Manager Console with text fields for entering or pasting scripts. The Scripts feature, CI Detection and Remediation, Application Detection, etc. The font used in these areas is not script friendly. Tabs and spaces are hard to discern and the scripts look downright messy. Using Consolas or another monospaced font would preserve the nice looking formatting you've just copied out of somewhere like VS Code, and would make the script easier to read when you go to look at it later in the ConfigMgr Console. Please change it :)

    Thank you for this great idea. This is something we are looking improve for Configuration Manager 2010. The 2007 Technical Preview now uses fixed-width fonts in the following areas of the console:

    • Application scripts
    • Configuration item scripts
    • WMI-based collection membership queries
    • CMPivot queries
    • Scripts
    • Task Sequence PowerShell scripts and command lines

    Some additional fixes have also been made to further improve these scenarios:

    • Resizable windows for viewing/entering scripts
    • Using horizontal scrolling instead of word wrapping for scripts

    Please try it out and send us a frown if there’s anything we missed or any other areas you’d like to see fixed width font support.

  3. Install Servicing Stack Updates (SSU) Before Other Updates When User Initiated

    The Current Branch 2002 release introduced a feature to install SSUs first but only when triggered by the deadline.
    From the docs:
    "SSUs are installed first only for non-user initiated installs. For instance, if a user initiates an installation for multiple updates from Software Center, the SSU might not be installed first."

    A lot of work has been put into encouraging user-participation in the patching process. I want the user to decide when they're ready to install the updates and avoid situations where the deadlines impact their work. In those scenarios the behavior introduced in 2002 therefore not helpful.

  4. Windows Application Packager (WinGet) Integration

    I would like configmgr to integrate with winget.

    https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/windows-package-manager-preview/

    Please allow me to simply tell winget to install/uninstall an application and allow sccm to monitor the result codes. Provide winget as a part of the sccm client install. Reduce my work effort to deploy applications!

    This should be a native deployment type as well. Let sccm ingest all the possible applications winget supports!

    Allow application content to be stored via Microsoft Connected Cache!

  5. BitLocker Network Unlock via CM Client Peer

    Create a Client Setting that would turn the CM Client into a BitLocker Network Unlock proxy agent. This would really enable the powerful BitLocker Network Unlock feature to be widely used and adopted in the enterprise, as the current WDS method is limited.

  6. 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

  7. Third-Party Updates Should Not Attempt 3 Downloads from Internet (WUMU)

    When deploying third-party updates using CMG, the client will detect it's on the internet. In the CAS.log, you will see it things it should reach directly out to windows updates (WUMU) in the CAS.log. The DP returned on ContentLocation.log is actually the internal WSUS location of where the third-party update was downloaded. This path is not resolvable from an internet client and shouldn't be used.

    If the client detects it's on the internet, it should never attempt to download from windows updates, since these updates are not applicable for that scenario. The update will timeout after 3 minutes and 3ā€¦

  8. Add an Alert that shows the state of the CMG Connection Point

    Add an Alert that shows the state of the CMG Connection Point.

    Currently, I have no automated way to tell if the CMG is healthy unless I go into the console and run the Connection analyzer.

    I'd like to see a built-in alert I can configure to notify me if the CMG service is in a non-Ready state, the Connection Point is "disconnected" or the number of "Clients online from CMG" is below a specific threshold.

  10. Report to Detail download duration and size of content for each Client

    As more users are working from home for the current pandemic the network teams are constantly asking... how much data are SCCM Clients downloading over the VPN.
    I would like to see a report that we can see the size of content and how long it took each client to download the content for updates, packages and applications. Even at what speed BITs was downloading so we could see which of our users have very slow/small Internet connections at home. This should include whether they downloaded from MS Updates, on-prem DP's or the CMG.

  11. 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.

  12. Application Group reboot behaviour

    Given a scenario of an application group which contains more than one application: if any application in that group requires a reboot the whole application group is terminated with an error (AppGroupHandler - InternalProcessAppRules failed with error 0x87d0032e) even though the application which demanded the reboot was installed correctly.

    The expected behaviour is to perform the reboot and then continue with the next application in line in the application group after the reboot.

    It would be beneficial if any reboot request in the application group process were internally remembered and only one reboot request would be sent to the userā€¦

  13. Available Applications that a user initiates in Software Center should ignore maintenance window for all dependencies and superseded apps

    When a user clicks on an application in Software Center while it is available (or pre-deadline) then all dependent and superseded applications should ignore the user's maintenance window. The current behavior is that if a reboot is needed in the chain then the user has to click install again in Software Center. This could be handled by a deployment option so that the current default behavior isn't impacted.

    Example:
    User Clicks on App1
    App1 has a dependency on App2
    App2 requires reboot
    When user clicks App1, App2 should install, then reboot, then App1 should complete installation and reboot if neededā€¦

  14. Application Detection - Add Return Code Option - Clear Install History

    Add a custom Return for applications. "Clears Install History"

    I'm currently deploying office 365, which when launched, prompts users to close apps and continue, however they can click cancel. If they click Cancel, it returns a code to CM which is then logged as a failure. I would like to have a Return Code option in the App DT that says, it the App returns code "123456", then exit out as if it never ran, no failure, no success. So in the software center, the icon says "Install" instead of "Retry", and not show a previous failure. It makes ourā€¦

  15. Co-Management Management Insights

    As we move workloads to Intune, there may be an existing, legacy mechanism that prevents the workloads from successfully being enabled. A Management Insight would alert the admin, if a client scoped for co-management, was also assigned a policy that would prevent the workload from moving successfully.

    For Example:-


    1. Moving the WUfB workload to Intune.

    A legacy GPO that "Disables Automatic Updates" will render updates disabled after the workload is moved to Intune - there is not an equivalent CSP that "Enables Automatic Updates" that gets pushed from Intune Policy to override/block the GPO

  16. Export lists to Excel/CSV from Desktop Analytics Portal

    Will be great if it could be possible to export data from DA Portal, either after setting up a filter or all data (up to an acceptable raws limit), in order to share lists of apps, devices or drivers with people to review or action on them, regardless of those people not being DA contributors themselves.

  17. Enable DA without the need of SCCM

    The pro of Windows Analytics was that you can configure it in every environment without the need to have SCCM or Intune configured.
    Please re enable this way of deployment, also if it's limited to Read-only insights or some features.

  18. Add option to "Suspend BitLocker PIN entry on restart" to suspend PIN entry when user initiates restart

    Currently, when "Suspend BitLocker PIN entry on restart" is set to Always, if the user initiates the restart Bitlocker PIN entry will not be suspended. This makes sense if we assume that the user is sitting at their computer when they trigger the restart. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we currently have many users accessing their onprem computers via RDP. If ConfigMgr prompts them to reboot and they click reboot over RDP, there computer will reboot and prompt for PIN entry, requiring the user to physically go in to the office and enter the PIN.

  20. Ability to trigger reboots through the client WMI SDK

    We need a way to use PowerShell (script) to trigger a Reboot using the Software Center Dialogs. This way we can trigger a reboot at the end of an install which will leverage the CM built-in notifications.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/configmgr/core/clients/deploy/device-restart-notifications

    Currently, if you have a deployment that triggers a pending reboot, the machine with NOT actually reboot after the install, but instead waits for the deadline. Or if the Deployment had no deadline, the machine will never actually reboot.

    We need a way to have CM trigger a reboot that we can call in a script, so at the end of anā€¦
