  1. Support Center Log File Viewer support same log files as CMTrace

    The CMTrace tool is able to parse non-SCCM log files (e.g. 1E's Nomad logs) to properly pick up timestamps, process ID's etc. It would be very helpful if this could be added to the Support Center/Support Center Log File Viewer. It seems

  2. More Customization's for Software Center branding

    We need more customization options for branding. We cannot choose a white background color as all text is white. We need greater control of options to choose both the positive and negative color of text and color of the highlight bars.

  3. Create a Support View for InventoryLog table.

    Troubleshooting Hardware inventory has always been a problem. Recently I was make aware of a great table within the SCCM database that can help with troubleshooting. HW inventory issues. However there is no support view to query this great information! Please create a supported view for this table or Enable support for vInventoryLog view so that it can be officially used in reports.

  6. ADR – Software Updates Property Filters

    When creating a new ADR software update you have the option to select the property filters and search criteria’s in the wizard. It would be beneficial for an advanced search technique or “wild card” to identify those filters that are broader. For Example: -%Cumulative Update for .NET Framework%Windows 10 Version 1809

  7. ADR specify group, deployment, and package name

    Currently the naming of objects automatically takes the ADR rule name and appends a timestamp value. I would like to be able to specify my own naming text, e.g. "Monthly Updates - %MONTH% %YEAR%" for the software update group and deployment package. I would also like to specify the deployment names, e.g. "Monthly Updates - %MONTH% %YEAR% - No Reboot". If the ADR is run again, I want it to update the existing objects.

    Even better if you simply allowed me to specify embedded PowerShell commands, e.g. "Monthly Updates - $((Get-Date).Month)-$((Get-Date).Year)". This can be done by simply processing the string…

  8. Remote Control Green Bar for Users should show First Name Last Name (Username)

    In the bar today, it shows the user SAM account name. It would be very useful to show the name of the person. In our environment, we use obfuscated usernames for Domain Admins as a security measure. It does mean when we activate remote control, the user at the other end does not have any idea who connected unless there is a prior conversation. Seeing the First Name / Last Name on the title would help use salivate this pain point.

  9. There is a possibility that SCCM does in Azure Backup.

    With more integrated Azure services within SCCM, you could have a Azure Backup integration, creating your blob, which you can do a local copy (cache) and then send to Azure Backup, the status you can follow in the console of the SCCM and have the option to generate alert via e-mail.
    Of course in addition to the option of Backup is very important to have the option of Restore.

  10. ADR-WIZARD - The ability to create additional deployments during the initial ADR set-up.

    When creating an ADR the wizard looks to be limited to a single deployment. There is the ability to add additional deployments. However, It would be nice if the creation of multiple deployments could be accomplished within the initial ADR creation in the set-up wizard.

  11. Add a command line option to Support Center to connect to a remote computer

    The Support Center utility is a great addition but doesn't seem to support specifying a remote computer to connect to from the command line. This would allow it to be called automatically from scripts and other tools.

    This is option is implemented for the remote control viewer by running: CmRcViewer.exe <remote-computer>

    Likewise it would be great to be able to call the Support Center thus:
    ConfigMgrSupportCenter.exe <remote-computer>

  12. Package (compress) content before send to client

    A lot of applications use hundreds, maybe thousands of files (e.g. Paint shop pro, oracle client, Autocad) of just a few KB / MB.

    For those applications sometimes you have to wait a long time before the application package is transfered to the client.

    Becouse of those large number of small files, there is not a large TCP window size, therefore the transfer could take longer than necessary.

    i would like to see a feature that packages on a DP are "packaged" (zip, rar or whatsoever) in larger blocks (e.g. 100MB split files) before any client will received it

  13. Auto update software on pc with software installed

    A nice feature would could be if a PC already has a certian piece of software installed and I release a new version it will automatically install update. I could just use required deployment but that will install on all PCs which is not needed.

  14. Support for Network Drives in WDAC and Exploit Guard

    When configuring exclusions and exceptions in WDAC or Exploit Guard via SCCM, whitelisting a path within a mapped network drive is non functional.

  15. Wildcards support for WDAC and Exploit Guard in SCCM

    When adding whitelist/exclusions for WDAC or Exploit Guard via SCCM wildcards are not accepted.
    This breaks functionality for remote support programs or conferencing programs such as LogMeIn Rescue or Zoom conferencing.

  16. Consolidate control panel functions into Software Center

    As Windows 10 moves to Settings rather than Control Panel, the features and functions of the Configuration Manager Control Panel get harder to access and more antiquated compared to Software Center, plus they give two very different places to go to manage the client.

    Why not completely consolidate the current Control Panel functionality into Software Center via the Options section or other area. If there are concerns about user permissions, put them behind a UAC lock.

  17. A more comprehensive log viewer

    Please develop a log viewer that understands and parses the various log files.

    Tracking down an error in Software Center often requires searching two to five different log files just to get a full picture of what the problem is and even then it's difficult to determine the root cause.

    Similarly, attempting to parse the smsts.log, at times it can be split into as many as three different files. Within that file, it should be fairly trivial to group events based on task sequences, individual tasks, and task groups.

  18. Device Guard Application Whitelisting, transistion from Audit to enforced and back again.

    Device Guard Application Whitelisting, being able to transistion from Audit to enforced without having to redeploy all applications. This would mean you could move from audit where you reinstall the apps and ensure you have compliance and won't break anything to enforced and if you experience some issues and need time to remediate you should be able to go back to audit to fix it. If this could then be enhanced so you can move to a new SCCM solution without extra configuration that would be very impressive.

  19. SQL Editions Inventory

    Add granular reporting information to the default Hardware Inventory mof for SQL Server editions.

    Currently the installed software tables just show SQL is installed with no detailed data on edition or versioning. This impacts the reporting data taken by our assets and licensing team, for instance a server with the SQL studio tools can show in this report and be incorrectly assigned a license from the pool.

    We do use a custom mof file to get this information separately but would be beneficial to have the data natively in one table for ease of use and remove extra workloads.
