  1. Use different Service Window Type for Site upgrades to enable better SCOM integration

    Business hours configured in the SCCM client and the service window for site updates are defined in the CCM_ServiceWindow Class using the same type. If they had a different type, SCOM could use the information to put the servers in Maintenance Mode automatically. That shouldn't happen when business hours are over, so SCOM cannot differ between one or the other.

  2. 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€¦

  3. Create a Standard (Non-Premium) Power Platform Connector for the ConfigMgr Admin Service

    I would love for companies to take advantage of the Power Platform (Power Apps and Power Automate specifically) to bring #ITwithoutBorders to the Microsoft Endpoint Management platform. There are currently "two" issues with this:

    1) Since no connector has been created, any of the endpoints and entity sets you want to exposed have to be defined manually, which could be challenging for the citizen developer.

    2) Premium connectors (which include the custom connectors) are cost-prohibitive. At $10/app/user/month (or $40/user/month) I don't see this making it past a budget meeting.

    If a standard connector was made, it would open up opportunitiesā€¦

  4. Enable to Automate Site Recovery

    For Upgrade there's a PS cmdlet but for Site Recovery there's none. Neither a wmi method nor a sql sp afaik.
    Please enable automation of Site recovery especially since for secondaries that is the supported way to deploy a hotfix.

  6. Add PowerShell Cmdlets for Creating, Updating and Removing Custom DDR Information

    There are many use cases for using Custom Data Discovery Records (DDR) to help drive automated workflows and categorization of systems for collection queries, etc.

    While we can do this automatically from Active Directory thru discovery, we don't have a similar mechanism for workgroup or AAD systems.

    Having the ability to Import/Update as well as Remove custom DDR data programmatically enables more complex workflows an integration points to retrieve data out of external IT Service Management solutions to drive business processes while avoiding the use of Direct Collection Memberships.

  7. Add support to extend more areas of the console

    It would be nice to be able to extend the details tabs of for example the devices. What i would like to accomplish is a upgrade resistant way of having https://sccm-zone.com/extend-the-sccm-console-to-show-collection-membership-using-console-builder-c6db52b408d8. It could be added by default but it would be more useful if the console was able to merge any xml ontop of the original ones.

  8. Expose v_Update_ComplianceStatusAll in WMI

    Expose SMSUpdateComplianceStatusAll in addition to SMSUpdateComplianceStatus to allow 3rd party tools to differentiate between 'Not Required' and 'Unknown' compliance states for software updates.

  9. Ability to disable alerts on 3rd party products like TrueSight Operations Management

    The ability to disable MOM/SCOM alerting during deployments is nice but having the ability to disable alerting on 3rd party products (like TrueSight Operations Management) would be extremely helpful.

  10. Need SMS Provider class for collection rules

    Currently it is not possible to efficiently query for properties of a collection membership rule. In the SDK the membership rules are a lazy property of the collection and must be retrieved one at a time before they can be tested. This iteration is impossibly slow and inefficient. If there was a SMS_CollectionRule WMI class then one could use a join query to search for Collections based on rule properties. In a real world situation, this would enable tools to quickly select a collection and find which collections it is a member of. This is really needed where collections areā€¦

  12. Graphical Overhaul for end user facing elements.

    Make every user facing graphical element of SCCM extensible so that modern GUI Frameworks can be leveraged to improve the user experience SCCM should look like slack or Microsoft teams or any other beautiful GUI that is presented on Modern desktops

  13. Log to ETW

    It would be handy if SCCM Agent (as well as the SCCM Server components) could send logs to ETW (instead or in addition to the files under C:\Windows\CCM\Logs) folder. That would allow us to redirect the events to a central location and analyze with event analysis tools, (i.e. OMS Log Analytics, Message Analyzer, etc.).

  15. Make "client notifications" scriptable

    Administrators can use the "client notification" feature from the admin console to trigger actions clients. This is a very useful feature - it would be even more useful, if this actions could be scripted. Pls. document how to script "client notification" actions.

  16. Allow the built-in CM Client package to be enabled for Alternate Content Providers (ACP)

    The built-in CM Client package is a predefined package and is locked/read-only. Alternate Content Providers (ACP) such as 1E Nomad are not able to officially enable this built-in package for distribution by Nomad.

    This request is to formally allow and support the built-in CM Client package to be enabled for content distribution by ACP's.
    This would require the ability to set the AlternateContentProvider property of the built-in CM Client package.

  17. Introduce a CLI for Client Peer Cache

    The new client peer cache functionality is great and we are currently evaluating whether it can replace our current alternate content provider.
    The main functionality that is missing in Client Peer Cache is a CLI or API that can be used on the SCCM client to download a specific content id.
    It would be great if we could launch a command or cmdlet to trigger the download of content using client peer cache and if that is not available download from the DP.

  18. Running ConfigMgr Control Panel applet actions should ignore throttling settings

    When running an action from the ConfigMgr control panel applet, e.g. "File Collection" or "Software Inventory" the action should be executed immediatley and not respect the throttling settings. Internally it should be handled differently whether an action is triggered by the scheduler or an user.

  19. Allow Console Extensions to access the Connected Site Code and Connected Server

    Allow Console Extensions to access the Connected Site Code and Connected Server when launched from areas in the console that aren't IResultObjects. When an extension is launched from a node such as Applications or Packages, we no longer can use the ##SUB:Server## or ##SUB:Namespace## fields. Similarly for assembly based extensions, the IResultObject is null and we can't get at the IResultObject.ConnectionManager property.

  20. Improved automation and extensibility by exposing Configuration Manager functionality through a REST web API

    Exposing Configuration Manager functionality through RESTful web API's would open up a whole new world for interacting with ConfigMgr.
    E.g. a web Admin console and easier integration with Service Management Automation (SMA).
    It should also be easier for 3rd party vendors to create new web based solutions for say an self-service portal or a Windows App for tracking an OS or application deployment on a mobile device or phone.
    Personally I would really like any easier way to interact with ConfigMgr. when running in Windows PE (OS Deployment) or a web portal for non-admins to provision new or existing machineā€¦
