  1. Application deployment and "Maintenance window" settings cause the application to kill

    -Problem overview
    If you deploy the application under the following conditions, the running application will be killed immediately after the download phase.
    The customer has set "Maintenance Windows", and the problem is that the application is killed at a timing outside the "Maintenance Windows" range.

    This behavior is reproducible. (Confirmed with MECM 2002) I want to confirm whether this behavior is a by design or a known issue.

    -Repro step
    1. Set "Maintenance Windows" to the device collection. The next step is to set the installation deadline before entering "Maintenance Windows".

  2. Prevent Cache Limit from Causing Application Deployment Failure

    Once the cache has been filled all subsequent application deployments fail until the cache self-cleans. In CAS.log you see that the client is refusing to download the content because the cache, not the actual disk, is full.
    This strikes me as a non-optimal design choice if the goal is to successfully install applications. If I want to install an application, I do not want it to fail because of an artificial limit that until very recently was set at the time of client install. Most of the time the cache clears based on the ā€˜Minimum duration before cached content canā€¦

  3. Required Software notification

    We would like to be able to remove the "Outside my business hours" option on the required software changes notification added in 1902. This option requires users to understand the difference between maintenance windows and business hours which can be confusing. This is even more confusing if you disable the options tab in Software Center so that the "Configure Business hours" option doesn't work.

  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. Deployment Enforcement after grace period expires

    We have discovered an issue with the current grace period feature (and got this bug confirmed with a case) not enforcing the deployment after expiration (Software Updates & Application).

    This results in multiple things:
    - the selected duration of the grace period is irrelevant for the deployment enforcement
    - as long as the client is only online during configured business hours an enforcement never occurs (so the documented "...reverts to normal behavior for overdue deployments." does not occur)

    As a result an enforcement is not assured and renders this feature unusable if you have the requirement to enforce e.g. softwareā€¦

  8. Enhance documentation & setting to control deployment available time randomization

    We have discovered, that the available time of a application deployment is randomized per client (we have discovered a range of 0 - 120 minutes).

    This behaviour is not documented and caused some headaches.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/apps/deploy-use/deploy-applications

    Additional to the documentation of this beviour (including the maximum randomization time) we would love to see a client setting to control this behaviour, similar to the "Disable deadline randomization" setting for the deployment deadline.

  9. Pre-deploy software to user primary device on application groups

    Actually there is no way to Flag application groups to pre-deploy on user primary device

    It would be great to have like on application deployment the capability to flag the groups to install on primary user device

  10. Rating and Installation Count in Software Center

    It would be nice to add a star rating system to applications in Software Center, and to have the option to display the software installation count on the software center application view. This mirrors the experience users are accustomed to with other app stores and it helps them to select the correct tool when there are multiple, similar options.

  11. Include Summarization time for assets in Application Deployments for Monitoring

    For package deployments the summarization filter heading is very useful for checking timings on assets for completed deployment. If this was the same for app deployments in monitoring it would be great as most companies have a combination of app and package deployments

  12. Let available applications automatically upgrade like in required mode

    Some of our customers work in the application model with available deployments. They would like to let the employees choose which application they want to install, but the update should be installed automatically if the user has already installed an application himself via the software center.

    Let's assume that with the help of Supersedence we update Application with name "Av1.0" with a second Application named "Av1.1" via available deployment. Then the supersedence should recognize whether the product assigned with the help of the available deployments was installed on a client and if so, the update should take placeā€¦

  13. 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€¦

  14. Approval for application groups

    Approvals are not available for application groups. It would be so much easier to approve one application group than multiple apps individually.

    Approvals should work with application groups the same way than with applications.

  15. allow manually configured phases for applications

    There seems no logical reason why it isn't possible to manually configure phases for application deployments the way they can be for updates - changing the way maintenance windows are handled for example, or setting phases to be manually moved on to.

  18. Available Uninstall

    When creating an applicaiton, we currently have the option to specify an uninstall ONLY when an install is already defined. It would be helpful to make an uninstall deployment without specifying any install content.

    At the moment, yes this can be done by leaving uninstall blank and specifying the unintsall as the install. However this causes a LOT of confusion since the button in software center reads Install.
    Alternativly, if we have the ability to just change what the text says for the install\uninstall buttons that would satisfy as well.

    Currently when we need similar behavior we essentially have aā€¦

  19. Allow Install Application feature to work with all "Available" deployments

    In the endpoint management portal (intune) there is now the ability to select a device and instantly install applications flagged for approval and applications that are just deployed as available. Please bring the ConfigMgr console to feature parity by allowing the adhoc install of Available applications via the console.

  20. Prioritize application deployments

    This an idea to add a functionality so we can set a priority from 1-10000 for multiple software deployments.

    Currently if one of the packages require a reboot and they get installed ahead of the others that will hold up the deployments until the machine is rebooted.
