  1. Please fix CSV Export of CM SSRS Reports

    When you export any default report from CM SSRS as CSV, each line of the export contains also the complete header information, makes the report unreadable and not useful for further processing.

    The Issue is described in more detail here: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/4a9ba696-e040-414d-b2f1-a24bfaf2289c/sccm-2012r2-reports-exporting-to-csv-incorrect-values-displaying?forum=sqlreportingservices

    • 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:
      smsschm_users had no rights on the view 'v_WindowsServicingStates' for select
      set it manually, then it works

      • Installed monitors report

        My idea would be for the SCCM team to create a report that collects the monitors installed on the PCs. The report would contain: PC name, last user logged on, last date when somebody logged on, Diagonal Size, Current Resolution, Max Supported Resolution, Monitor Manufacturer, Model, S/N of monitor, Date of manufacture.

        Location of report would be : Monitoring --> Reporting --> Reports --> Hardware - Monitors or create the report under the Hardware - Video Card.

        Currently there is no such report.......
        Please Microsoft SCCM team, make our lives easier :)

        You are doing a fantastic job to hear…

        • Option to copy dashboard / monitoring code. to be able to use in external reporting tool

          Consider to implement the option to copy/export the code from a dashboard or monitoring view. this should be the SQL code, that generates the view
          This would give the possibility to present the data in e.g. PowerBI, Servicenow, Cherwell etc. and at the same time remove the requirement for SCCM console access for users with reporting requirements.
          The scope could be all nodes under monitorting

          • Report to include memory under 4GB in a specific model

            In this section of SCCM: \Monitoring\Overview\Reporting\Reports\Hardware - Memory, it would be great to be able to see all computers that have less than 4GB of RAM, based on model. For example, I want to know how many of the Dell 3440s have 2GB so I can order more RAM for them.
            Thanks!

            • 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.

              • relative time options for scheduled reports

                if you plan a report, e.g. "Antimalware overall status and history", to run every 1st day each month for example, you can only enter fixed dates for the report.
                There should be relative options like "first day of previous month" (see SCOM for good examples)

                  • Historical Client Connections - Management Point

                    It would be great to be able to report on within SQL how many clients in total have connected to a Management Point/s.

                    The scenario being for example, in a newly configured IBCM environment it would be nice to be able to report on how many clients in total have connected to one of the IBCM enabled MP's, business use being able to report on current uptake.

                    Currently you can report on LastScan but that is unfortunately only taken as a current snapshot and data would change as clients move back and forth between Internet and Intranet networks.

                    • Windows 10 Dashboard - Include Windows 7 devices

                      As we get closer to the EOL of Winodws 7, it would be cool to have another widget in the Windows 10 servicing dashboard that shows Win10 v Win7 usage and the EOL date. Its a small thing but some additional visibility like that could help kick some orgs in the rear to get going on the upgrade to Win10.

                      • Compliance tracking per system on a time series. Ideally you could set your aggregation interval, vendor, and update classification.

                        Would like to have a Table with a Resource ID , timestamp , and compliance %, vendor and Update Classification. The table aggregation interval could be daily or weekly, or follow data warehouse sync. With a capture of system specific data we can build BI reports per system, and aggregate per customer groupings. This would be a win for executive level reporting to show how every month SCCM moves the enterprise to compliant, as compliance percent drops on 2nd Tuesday and move up throughout the month. Detail level data is needed to drive exceptions (read snowflakes) into standard best practices.

                        • 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 Install_Software_Data 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 is a…

                                  Writing queries requires using WQL which has a very stripped back feature set. Please allow normal SQL queries to be used.

                                  • FIX: Distribution Point Usage Summary Report is Empty

                                    This report has no data:

                                    Home > ConfigMgr_PS1 > Software Distribution - Content > Distribution point usage summary

                                    Reason is the SMS_Distribution_Point_Monitoring component selects the last alphabetically stored and '*' separated MP name from registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\DP - ManagementPoints. This happens to be a management point in our untrusted DMZ forest and our production forest distribution points can not access this DMZ forest management point on port 443 due to firewall rules.

                                    When we rearrange the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\DP - ManagementPoints value so it will reference a production forest management point as the last '*' separated entry, the distribution point usage summary…

                                    • Add a way to see what servers are core installation

                                      Would be nice to be able to tell within the console, or via a collection which servers are installed as server core, or with desktop experience without jumping through hoops.

                                      • Add Software Distribution Status report, as package has

                                        missing Software Distribution report that will show deployment status (same as Status of a specified package and program deployment report)

                                        • Need Client Data Sources reports that provide more detail than the Client Data Sources Dashboard

                                          Ability to show client data sources used on specific deployments in Reporting would be very helpful. The Client Data Sources dashboard does not prove the granularity I'm looking for.
