  1. 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.

  2. Support for custom table synchronization into Data Warehouse

    Issue: Support for custom table synchronization into Data Warehouse

    Currently, although a method exists to extend tables that can be imported into the Data Warehouse, we learnt recently that this is not supported. We feel this represents a gap with the following impacts:
    - Not all tables from the SCCM database are currently synced into the DW. Even a common AI table like InstallSoftwareData must be synced via this custom process. This is a table used heavily in AI based software title reporting and therefore a common addition to the DW.
    - Custom inventory tables – inventory extension/customization…

  3. Support center online documentation

    It would be great to have an up to date documentation
    Currently, it is pointing to ConfigMgr 2012.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/system-center/system-center-2012-R2/dn688621(v=technet.10)
    The tool is available with CB 1810.

  4. CMPivot - Additional operators and joins

    I'd like to see a few things added to CMPivot after having a chance to use it recently.
    1. Joins: Would be really useful to be able to join data from different entities, like joining process data with the device data to be able see what makes and models are running a specific process that may have a memory leak issue.


    1. Additional Operators: Would be nice to be able to do a math operation on data that comes back, convert memory values to MB/GB with division, etc.

  5. App Approval - Include User “comments” in Email

    The new App Approval feature in 1810 is looking great. So we can build on integration with other services and service desk software it would be handy to include the users “comment” in the email body.
    Expanding on this and having the ability to add a “cost” and “billing code” field to the app request will enable the app procurement lifecycle to more streamlined.

  6. Ability to specify the keyboard layout in the Boot Images properties

    I know we can use the DISM command to set the input locale but from my point of view it should exist a field in the Boot Image properties where you could specify the layout you want.

  7. Bug & Solution // Error The SELECT permission was denied on the object 'v_WindowsServicingStates'

    Windows Server 2016
    SCCM just upgraded to SCCM CB 1806

    When i run the Report "Lifecycle 01A - Computers with a specific software product" and i select "Windows 10, version 1703" it throws an error:
    Error The SELECT permission was denied on the object 'v_WindowsServicingStates'
    It Works fine if I for example select "Windows 8.1"

    I could reproduce it both environments - Test and Live.

    Solution:
    smsschmusers had no rights on the view 'vWindowsServicingStates' for select
    set it manually, then it works

  8. To be able to send wake up packet to a client from the admin console

    It would be useful to send a wake up packet to a client machine from the admin console to allow remote access if the machine has been turned off. This could be a check box option on the remote control screen. For example: "Send wake up if client is off"

  9. Allow scripts created in \Software Library\Scripts node to be ran in a task sequence

    The scripts that are created and approved in \Software Library\Scripts allow them to be used during a task sequence that way you do not need to create a package to contain the script file and download. That way you can avoid using the run command line step if the script is long.

  10. os discovery

    It would be great if we could exclude certain OS's from discovery. I have over 5500 machines in my DB that I couldn't care less about but they reside in an OU where I have machines I do care about.

  12. Run executable package content (posh script or exe) from RAMdisc

    I need an ability to run executable content, especially posh scripts, in winpe from RAMdisk. I mean, then there is no initialised or partitioned disks in the system.

  13. Enable right click WOL a device from inside the console

    Allow the built in use of WOL, and right click to wake up a machine or a collection at anytime. Also fix ConfigMgr's native WOL technology to work on common network infrastructure (no Mac-Flapping.)

  14. task sequence variable applied to nested task sequence

    It would be good if you a Task Sequence Variable created in the Parent task sequence could be applied in the child task sequence.

    e.g.
    Task Sequence A sets the task sequence variable 'wibble' = True

    Nested Task Sequence B has a step that runs if the Condition is set to run if Task Sequence Variable 'wibble' = True

    Hope that makes sense.

  15. Fix Peer Cache limit to subnet

    Currently peer cache is still not a usable feature. We have found that all systems see themselves on the same subnet because of the Teredo Tunneling Adapter. They are all on the same IPv6 subnet. This has almost been found by a 3rd party vender (https://2pintsoftware.com/peer-cache-1806/). As Peer Cache is now a release feature and not pre-release, this should be fixed ASAP as it is a broken feature.

  16. CMPivot Eventlog is using Get-Eventlog instead of Get-WinEvent

    The current 1806 implementation of CMPivot is using the cmdlet GEt-Eventlog read event log entries. The PowerShell command is:
    $events = get-eventlog -LogName $logName -Newest 50 -ErrorAction Stop

    This limits the logs to be read from to logs like Application, Security, System and only some others. On my client (Get-EventLog -List).Count has only 12 logs.

    The better command would be Get-WinEvent. Where I can access all logs. The command (Get-WinEvent -ListLog *).Count returns 463 logs.

    Updating status to completed – this is addressed with the Referenced tab in the task sequences node. That shows all the statically referenced packages, applications, OS images, driver packages etc. and the distribution status.

    There’s a column ‘Targeted’ which is the number of distribution points used for the package/app. The ‘Compliance’ column indicates distribution status. Each column can be sorted for quick indication of distribution status.

    For each item in this list you can right click to select ‘View Content Status’ if you require granular detail.

    If that does not meet your requirements, please reactivate this item and let us know what else you’d like to see there.

  18. ContentLibraryTransfer not working on Remote DPs in Current Branch (1710/1802)

    ContentLibraryTransfer.exe runs fine on Site Servers (Primary and Secondary Sites) and doesn't work on Remote DPs, below is the error:

    CLT:05/03/2018 08:23:01 Unable to verify configuration. This tool can only be run on either Distribution Points or SiteServer machines
