  1. Make ConfigMgr work with Autopilot and Enrollment Status Page (ESP)

    When deploying a device using Autopilot, the Enrollment Status Page (ESP) is used to prevent access to the desktop until the device provisioning tasks are complete. But ConfigMgr doesn't integrate with the ESP, so there's no way to wait for packages, apps, or task sequences - the user doesn't know when the process is done. Add that integration.

  2. Detailed Windows crash data in Desktop Analytics

    Device Health in Windows Analytics has lots of useful information about Windows crashes, such as what caused the blue screen, the driver version, and other information. This information can be used to develop proactive improvement plans to improve the general reliability of our desktop environment and end user devices.

    Could you please add this functionality to Desktop Analytics? It would complement the existing information being reported for O365 reliability, although this is currently somewhat hidden by the M365 UI.

  3. Warn admins prior to secret key or certificate expiry

    If you forget to renew your CMG "secret key" before the expiry date, things like distributing content to cloud enabled CMG will fail.

    This uservoice is to prompt admins via a banner when the secret key or any self-signed certificates are due to expire.

  4. PowerShell cmdlet for new detection clause with custom scripts

    PowerShell cmdlet for new detection clause with custom scripts

    It would help to have a new-cmdetectionclause to add in a snippet of powershell/vbscript as the detection method.

  5. OSUninstall - Make ConfigMgr Aware of going back to previous builds

    Please Make CM aware if an OSUninstall (Reverting to previous Build) has happened, so it can heal itself into a functional state. Currently if you perform an OSUninstall from say 1809 to 1709, after you've upgraded originally to 1809 using a CM Task Sequence, the CM Client is non-functional.
    Client is in Provisioning Mode, Services are disabled, and once you fix that, it thinks it's int he middle of the Task Sequence and shows the Upgrade TS "Installing", so then you need to clear that out.

    Please make OSUninstall & CM Play Nice together, so we can offer users theā€¦

    Weā€™ve shipped fixes for a few scenarios that can cause this in 1902 but know there are some scenarios left.
    May we ask anyone still experiencing it on 1902 to gather verbose logs from the client and send a frown so we can troubleshoot additional scenarios that cause the error.

  8. Unify Powershell Functionality

    The recent Powershell features like 'Run Script' and allowing them to be added directly to a Task Sequence step are fantastic, but things are beginning to feel somewhat fragmented.

    It would be great if SCCM had a central script repository, maybe backed by git, that we could pull scripts from as opposed to adding them.

    This would allow us to easily use the same code in a Task Sequence and a 'Run Script' without having to maintain it in multiple places. Perhaps we could even add a special Powershell Script Package Program type that would pull a script from theā€¦

  9. Integrate git into the Task Sequence for script execution

    Can we please have native git integration in an OSD task sequence for script execution? This would provide version and branch control when running scripts during an OSD task sequence

    e.g.


    1. Connect to a repo in GitHub

    2. Download scripts as a zip file

    3. Extract scripts and then execute

    It would be good to select a specific branch as well (e.g. develop) so you can test script changes prior to merging to master

  10. Task Sequence Version Control

    Please create a function to enable task sequence versioning. This feature would be very helpful for reverting back to a previous task sequence as well as accountability for the last user that modified the task sequence.

    We write a lot of WMI queries as well as set various task sequence variables. These settings change over time and it would be a great feature to look back on a previous version to view the changes as well as the last user modification.

    We currently make copies of our task sequences for this archival purpose. This process works for us now, butā€¦

  11. Add task sequence auditing

    The inability to know exactly what changes were made (and by whom) in a task sequence is a significant pain point. Something close what AGPM provides for group policies would be ideal, but even basic auditing capabilities as a starting point would help tremendously.

  12. It would be great to export just task sequence xml file so it can be added into git repo in multi admin enviorment

    It would be great just to get drop in task sequence to export task sequence xml file to it can be uploaded to external repository as way to keep track of changes in any change management system

  13. The ability to compare and merge Task Sequences and version after the merge

    I would like the ability to load up a couple of Task Sequences, and have the ability to merge any changes between the two TS's.

    This would assist when importing TS over from a TEST or DEV env or working on test TS in the same environment. Ideally have the option to approve /deny each of the merges before submitting.

    Once merged, version the change to a later increment so neither of the two TS's are saved over?

  14. Integrate Task Sequence Versioning with GIT

    For large enterprises such as the one I work in govt Education, it would be very beneficial for integrating version control via GIT. Every time you check in a new version is saved to GIT.

    Then you can review changes (could be xml or some other format) in GIT, and potentially revert to an older version if the changes are not approved.

  15. Request full control over allow/disallow force closing of Office 365 apps when installing updates instead of force closing Office apps

    In ConfigMgr 1610 Update Rollup 1 provided the change so Office 365 Updates did not force close any office applications when Office 365 patches were installed through ConfigMgr Software Center.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/sum/deploy-use/manage-office-365-proplus-updates#restart-behavior-and-client-notifications-for-office-365-updates

    With ConfigMgr 1706 we require the option to disallow force closing of office 365 applications when patches are installed through the ConfigMgr Software Center.

  16. Software Center "Sort by" default view

    Change default "sort by" order from "Most recent" to Alphabetic list (Application name A-Z). Or remember the setting for the client. Or allow a SysAdmin setting for site-wide default setting. It always resets back to Most recent.

  17. Cloud Management Gateway (as CSP)

    With 1610, the Cloud Management Gateway feature arrived. Although it's a Pre-Release feature, as Cloud Solution Provider we're UNABLE to use/implement this. And so are our customers...!

    When you try to set this up from the ConfigMgr console, a prerequisite is the Azure Management Certificate, which can't be configured as CSP-tenant because this needs the Classic Azure Portal (ASM). This is unacceptable for us, as CSP, as we would have to instruct our customers to get an Azure Subscription separately.

  18. 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.).
