  1. Remove unused Vendor classifications from SUP

    Remove unused Vendor classifications from SUP.

    As l have been configuring SCCM 1806 with Third Party Patching, l am now left with unwanted Vendors being listed in SUP and SUP Reports.

    Can these be pruned/removed?

    • BranchCache

      Could we please have more granular controls of BranchCache - as an example we have a mixed environment with a lot of laptops - it would be useful to exclude laptops from BranchCache (perhaps via WMI query on battery present), but include the PC's and Servers. We have had to turn BranchCache off because of the impact it was having on our SQL server, which has now seen our network traffic increase as well as load on our DP's.

      • Make Software Center Links Trusted by Office

        Software Center's ability to produce a direct link to an available application is great, however when you send the resulting link via email the end user gets a "Unsafe Location" warning prompt. Please add an option to automatically add the softwarecenter: location to the list of trusted locations in office, similarly to how there is an option to add the app catalog to the list of trusted sites. The exact regkey needed is below.

        HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\<version>\Common\Security\Trusted Protocols\All Applications\softwarecenter:

        • Manage access accounts globally for the remote content library feature to work - 1806

          With the new feature of having a remote content library for the primary site (a prerequisite for HA ability), there is an issue with the access permissions set on the remote content library.

          During the process of adding a new application/package/driver/bootimage/etc, configmgr creates all the necessary files and folders in its own content library, however on one particular file structure for each package, it takes off inheritance of permissions and adds only the storage servers: 'users' and 'administrators' group.

          This causes issues when the storage is hosted remotely and the primary site computer account is not a member of the…

          • Add an option to automatically distribute a new application or package.

            After you create a package, or application, instantly go to the Distribute window or a box asking if you want to go there. I forget to distribute new packages almost every time.

            • SCCM Device Collection Query Rule Check

              When creating or modifying a device collection using a query rule can SCCM include an option to provide an output of the results before applying. Maybe it could open in Monitoring > Queries to show the results and then once verified the Apply button can be clicked. This could prevent a mis-configured query resulting in deployments to devices that were added inadvertently. It could also reduce a step from having to create an actual query and then importing that query.

              • GUI for result of Maintenance Tasks on SCCM 2012

                GUI for result of Maintenance Tasks on SCCM 2012 will be a great feature to have . For example....a GUI that shows the complete week....and..on green color..when the task completed succesfully...and how many time it took.
                If you have multyple sites , that you can see all the Primary Sites Maintenance tasks..represented using the CAS time as reference.

                • Server Groups - Non Clustered Servers

                  Can we increase the functionality of the Server Groups feature on collections to allow us to control non-clustred servers

                  For example, when patching I have a collection for Hyper-V hosts, but want to ensure that onyl one Host is down at any one time, and not all of them at once!

                  • Rename SCCM Objects using F2

                    It would be a benefit if one could rename SCCM objects (Collections, Applications, TaskSequences, ...) by pressing F2 instead of going into the objects properties.

                    This would save a lot of time managing objects.

                    • ModernSleep - Software Inventory - File Scan Issue

                      Issue: Scanning for EXE files during software inventory keeps getting killed by ModernSleep behavior on "tablet style" devices across our enterprise.

                      On a users machine you can see after his machine is locked a “CSEvent Enter Event” is recorded. Within seconds the Inventory process detects the event and is shutting down. This process repeats several times daily and the scan never gets completed.

                      One article I read talks about disabling ModernSleep on Dell computers has already caused issues for them. Contacting Lenovo they say that disabling this is not recommended as it may impact the ability to talk to drivers…

                        • Allow Administrators to Enforce the 'List' View As Default

                          In environments where long application names cannot be avoided, the stock default 'tiled' view does not allow for the best user experience, often leading to confusion when 3 different flavours of an application have similar names.

                          The 'list' view within Software Centre allows for longer application names reducing confusion, however there is currently no easy way of enforcing this view as the default in Software Centre under Administration > Client Settings.

                            When setting up Co-management, make it so that the Client Setup Bootstrap is auto-created in Intune with the appropriate arguements. This way can ensure also that the app is auto-updated with new realeses of ConfigMgr.

                                  It would be nice if you could quickly be able to see where a Service Plan is deployed like in the Software Update Groups with the tabs at the bottom after selecting a Update Group. With Service Plans today you have to open the properties of the Service Plan to see exactly what device collection is it being deployed to.

                                  • The ability to run a configuration baseline on a collection that has the baseline applied to a parent collection.

                                    Currently we have certain Baselines that are applied to our master collection of all computers in the organization. However, when we replace a lab we should be able to run that baseline without having to run it against the master collection.

                                    • Allow users (settings) deployment in Deployment Type which runs as SYSTEM

                                      We are always struggling with user settings deployment (%Appdata%, CU Registry, files in User profile). Now we need to build another deployment type or application. Or we deploy settings with GP Preferences. But the possibility to run a script during deployment in the user context would solve a lot of additional administration. It will make out lives a lot easier ;-)

                                      • Run a powershell script when an alert is triggered to allow integration with 3rd party tools

                                        The ability to create email subscriptions gives rudimentary notification when alerts happen. The ability to run a powershell script would open the possibility of integrating with 3rd party monitoring and notification systems. Current systems such as Solarwinds, PRTG,nagios/icinga2 and others have REST interfaces that can easily be addressed from powershell. This kind of integration would enable shops that choose not to run SCOM a way to integrate SCCM alerts into their existing monitoring set ups.

                                        Ideally the script call would be able to pass the alert data to the script in some fashion.

                                        • searchbar on devices tab

                                          It would be nice if the search bar on the devices tab would remove trailing spaces before searches. The issue is that we copy and paste a device name from a report and there will sometime be a trailing space that comes along with the paste. If this space is present when hitting the search button, the search will not find the device.
