  1. 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.

  2. SCCM Wizards to provide Associated Log file Details - Similar to SCCM Update Monitor Wizard

    How about providing associated log file details at the end of the summary / completion page of all SCCM Wizards to help SCCM admins. I think it would be helpful. What you think?

    For example if you are creating a SUP role -> Add Site System Roles Wizard -> Completion page will have the log file name -> SUpsetup.log

    Do you love SCCM updates and servicing monitoring log file details?

  3. Show/Use device IP-address from NotificationAgent update in Console

    In VPN scenarios the DNS resolution is missing or delayed very often. To troubleshoot a device the current device IP-address is important.
    You can force a DDR /heartbeat from the console, but this take a while until the information is arrived and actually it is unnecessary because the IP-address Information is already existing in the SCCM database from the NotificationAgent update cycle.
    (SELECT v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION.ResourceID, v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION.IPAddress0, vSMS_R_SYSTEM.Netbios_Name0
    FROM v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION
    inner join vSMS_R_SYSTEM on v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION.ResourceID = vSMS_R_SYSTEM.ItemKey
    where vSMS_R_SYSTEM.Netbios_Name0 = 'DEVICENAME')

    It would be nice to get the Information directly in the console. And it would be nice as well, when theā€¦

  4. ConfigMgr Web Console

    Introduce ConfigMgr Web Console and remove the need to update the console on every device with each SCCM CB Upgrade as local admin rights are needed to update the console.

    The ConfigMgr Web Console might be similar to Azure Portal with Microsoft Intune.

    With SCCM CB updates getting released more frequently than before, this will provide benefits and ease of management. The Admins can connect to the ConfigMgr console from any computer in the organisation without the need to install it.

  5. Add separate security role permission for CMPivot

    Console users must have "Run Scripts" security role permission to use CMPivot. Can you add a separate security role permission for CMPivot so we can make administrative users with CMPivot permission but not "Run Scripts?"

  6. Community Hub: RBAC or opt-out

    With 1902 we introduced the Community Hub to the current branch release. Even it's a great feature, some users shouldn't be able to see it. It would be nice if we could use RBAC or a site setting do hide it from consoles.

  7. Add column to display Computer Description in Devices list

    For us admins systems it is information we miss, because we have server numbers but do not know what application is running behind. When we have more than 500 servers it is not easy to memorize all the roles.

  8. Add computer model as a column

    Can you add ā€œcomputer modelā€ as a column option for devices. When looking at devices, that seems to be the only field missing when we are trying to sort by things such as OS, computer name, etc. Can you also add a way for us to rename or mask these models. For example, when we look at Lenovo models we get what looks like a serial number instead of T480s. Having the ability to update that model number to an actual name will help. Thanks.

  9. Include Option to Enable Two-Person Integrity

    We would like to see an option to enable two-person integrity through the SCCM Console. Once enabled, the workflow would be as follows: Operator 1 creates a deployment, then Operator 2 must review and approve the deployment. Once the deployment is approved, the deployment becomes active.

  10. Task sequence media - compute space does not consider removed applications/packages

    When creating stand-alone media you have the option to select which Applications,Packages and driver packages it should include onto the media or not. After clicking next on the summary page the process of starting the media launches. in the createTSMedia.log you can see that at some point the process starts to compute volume layout. It seems that the compute of the volume layout does take into account the software you selected to not be on the media. Therefore you might get the message that you do not have enough space on the USBFD media altough this is not trough. Atā€¦

  11. Integrate a GitHub (or GitHub Enterprise) Repository/Branch as the source of "Software Library\Scripts"

    It would be great if you could specify a Git Repository and Branch as the source of the contents of the Scripts Folder. This would allow the approvals to be managed in GitHub with all the abilities around code review and testing.
    It could still require an admin approval in the console which Version of the script should be used. It would also make rollbacks to an earlier version very easy.
    If you allow having "folders" in the Script folder, each of them could be a repository. You still should need to approve which version to run, but MVPs couldā€¦

  13. Global Search Bar

    Create a Search Bar that activates across all console panes to provide a quick search and drill through capability across all object types. For example, from the Assets and Compliance pane - search for "automatic client upgrade" and have it display a drill through link directly launch the Hierarchy Settings dialog box to display the pane where the setting resides.

  14. Search Feature for Membership Tab in Collection Properties

    We have a large number of clients and many Collections are setup to use Direct Membership rules. When in the Collection Properties, Memberships tab, when there are a lot of Direct Membership rules it can be difficult to find a specific entry if a change needs to be made. It would be nice if there was a Search feature in this window to make it easier to find a specific rule for cases where a rule may need to be removed.

  15. Office 365 client versions latest version distinction

    It would be nice in the Office 365 Client Management pie chart that lists the different versions of office, if the latest versions of the different channels were noted which ones were the latest version to make them stick out from the out of date versions.

  16. Increase block size for pulse mode (distribution point rate limit)

    Using pulse mode rate limit on a distribution point can enable a 2Mbps bandwidth cap. This is useful and it would be great if the block size limit of 256KB be increased to support higher thresholds.

  17. CMPivot Web Portal

    We have a lot of people who would love to run queries against our systems (Desktop Support admins for example) that we do not give direct console access to. It would be super helpful to have a web-based interface for CMPivot to allow people an easy method to execute queries.

    In addition, a query builder like that of Azure Log Analytics would be helpful as well so we don't have to walk them thru how to write all there queries.

  19. Console - Add Application Name to Application Properties in Summary Tab

    Add the Application Name to the Summary Tab under Application Properties so you can easily copy & paste the name.

    If you could actually do this in all areas of the Console, anything you have open, having the Name of the object in the Summary Properties so you can copy & paste out is nifty.

    NOTE: ConfigMgr Dev Team at MMSMOA Cabin Session did this for Packages, so hopefully that hits an up coming release, but I'd like to see this in all areas:
    Collections: DONE
    Task Sequences: DONE
    Global Conditions: Not Done

    Driver Packages: Not Done

  20. Maintenance mode doesn't work as Operations Administrator

    Get's an error when trying to put a DP in Maintenance mode, access denied, when delegated the rights of "Operations Administrator". Works with Another account with "Full Administrator" permissions, but that shouldn't be a necessity for this scenario.

    ConfigMgr Error Object:
    instance of SMS_ExtendedStatus
    {
    Description = "User \"DOMAIN\%Username%\" does not have sufficient rights to Enable maintenance mode on distribution point";
    ErrorCode = 1112017920;
    File = "..\\ssppkgserver.cpp";
    Line = 1324;
    ObjectInfo = "2";
    Operation = "ExecMethod";
    ParameterInfo = "SMS_DistributionPointInfo";
    ProviderName = "WinMgmt";
    StatusCode = 2147749889;
    };
