  1. Run Scripts: Expand Uses to Applications and Configuration Items

    With 1902 we have the ability to now link a script, in the "Run Scripts" feature, to a step in a task sequence. This is a great step forward, but it could be expanded more.

    A number of businesses have a need for version support/change management/auditing, etc. Its also nice to have your scripts located in ONE location, rather than many. It would be awesome if we could leverage the current Run Scripts as more of a repository, and allow them to not only be used for the actual "Run Scripts" feature, and in task sequences, but also in CI'sā€¦

  2. Enable All Subfolders search for Compliance Settings

    Currently you cannot search 'All Subfolders' within Configuration Items or Configuration Baselines. You can only search the current node/folder.

  3. Enable settings to silently configure OneDrive for Business profile

    If you create OneDrive for Business profile to enable Known Folder Move, it only works if the user has an existing OneDrive for Business profile.

    It would be very helpful, if SCCM could also silently enable OneDrive for Business profile for the users if they don't have it.

    There should be 3 new settings to enable OneDrive for Business silently:
    - Silently Enable OneDrive for Business: SilentAccountConfig (most important)
    - Enable OneDrive Files on Demand: FilesOnDemandEnabled
    - Maximum OneDrive Size Before Prompting: DiskSpaceCheckThresholdMB

  4. Compliance state always 'Compliant' when remediation script runs

    Use the output from Remediation to test and see if it was actually successful rather than assuming it was successful. Only way is to have a true non-compliance is to throw a non-zero exit code when using a script.

    For more details see: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/0f0f3e6f-7e9f-4376-a926-fc0b6aef5bf1/sccm-compliance-state-always-compliant-when-remediation-script-runs

  5. If you set "Configuration Baselines" of "Windows Defender Firewall Policy", the event "Invalid namespace" occur

    If you set "Configuration Baselines" of "Windows Defender Firewall Policy", the event "Invalid namespace" occurs as "search configuration error".
    This event only occurs in workgroup environments, but not in domain environments.

    The workgroup client wishes that this function can be used because domain GPO can not be used.

  6. Set A configuration Baseline as dependency in Deployment type

    At the dependencies tab in deployment type configuration, be able to select a configuration baseline to be evaluated/apply a remediation. Think is a powerful way to set some required settings

  7. Import/use ADMX to create Compliance Settings

    Import or use ADMX Files to create compliance settings/items and us SCCM to deploy these Settings instead of active directory gpo

  8. Wired network authentication profiles

    For networks that require port-based 802.1x authentication, group policy wired network profiles is the recommended way to manage the authentication settings for LAN interfaces. It would be really useful if ConfigMgr could manage and apply the wired network profiles. Managing the settings from ConfigMgr would allow us to take more steps away from using Group Policy to manage device settings.

  9. Certificate Profiles for Servers

    We have some workgroup servers which are unable to access the enterprise CA so we want to deploy some root CA certificates to them per sccm.
    Currently it is only possible to select client OSE's on the supported plattform page. Please allow server OSE's as well.
    Thanks

  10. Convert CI from Operating System type to Application Type

    It happens (quite often) when I'm creating a CI in the console that I blaze thru the wizard (accepting defaults) and start building out all my settings, rules, etc. When I'm all done, I close out and then realize that I forgot to configure the CI as an APPLICATION CI with a detection method.

    So now I have to delete my CI, and start all over from scratch. ANNOYING! I would love the ability to "convert" an Operating System CI type to an Application CI type and be able to go back in and add a detection method as appropriate.

  11. Configuration Baselines only create QWORDs

    Right now if you use HKCU and try to create a DWORD value that does NOT exist, even though you set remediation up properly and select the box that says to create the value as a REG_DWORD, it still does not create the entry at all and the baseline reads as compliant. The creation of DWORD values using baselines has been a common post on forums for many years.

  13. Support "Any of" in addition of "All of" Options for String Arrays Compliance Rules

    Currently, the only value option for string arrays in a compliance rule is to specify that it must contain "All of" the specified values. I would like to be able to say that it should contain "Any of." Similar to how regular strings have "One of."

    Ideally, an "Any of" value would support any combination of any number of values in the list, but only values in the list.

  14. Add option for various actions based off CI status

    Configuration items has statuses of compliant, non-compliant, unknown, and error. It would be a nice expansion of the compliance settings feature to be able to act upon the individual CI status and not the just add to a collection based off baseline compliance.

    Actions that would be of benefit are:
    Add to collection
    Install individual software update or software update group
    Install package
    Install application
    Run task sequence
    Run script

  15. Report on Local Admin Permissions

    For many years now Microsoft has strongly recommended that Local Admin Rights be removed. Would it be possible to have SCCM report on the contents of the Local Administrators group? Also, could we maybe have a wizard under Compliance Settings to configure these settings. I know Sherry Kissenger from MNSCUG has done a lot of work with this. Maybe the product team could pattern the solution after her work.

  16. Add Ability to Remediate Existential Registry Setting Compliance Items

    Currently you cannot auto-remediate a registry compliance item with an existential rule. I should be able to select an option to auto-remediate to have a setting removed much like you can to set a value.

  17. Manual Remediation Option for Configuration Baselines

    I think it would be beneficial if there was a manual remediation option in the Configuration Manager applet, to let users manually run remediation steps. I know a Non-Compliant collection could be created and a application/package pushed to it, but I'd like the option to manually run a remediation step for Non-Compliant computers.

  20. Console UI function to invoke evaluation of baselines on clients

    Being able to invoke evaluation of baselines deployed to certain Client or device collection from the Console UI would be very helpful.

    One way to do it would be to add the option in to the Client Notification pane or also known as the "right click tools" see Attached file.

    I have an old blog post on how to invoke evaluation with the help of Powershell but adding it in to the Console UI would be very nice.
