  1. client data source (Windows Update)

    Display "Microsoft Update" as data source.
    If you enable "fallback to Microsoft Update" for SUP deployment you cannot see this as data source. You can only see "Distribution Point", "Cloud Distribution Point", "BrachCache" and "Peer Cache"

    • report broke in v1710

      v1710 issues with report "Hardware - Disk/Computers with low free disk space (less than specified MB free). Report name needs to reflect GB not MB. Which was changed in v1710

      Inventory default unit revision
      As devices now include hard drives with sizes in the gigabyte (GB), terabyte (TB) and larger scales, this release changes the default unit (SMS_Units) used in many views from megabytes (MB) to GB. For example, the v_gs_LogicalDisk.FreeSpace value now reports GB units.

      • Expand Software Inventory to include Office 365 Add-ins

        Right now we have to use Office Telemetry to determine what Office 365 Add-ins are being used in our environment. We have a need to report on what add-ins are being used and to also be able to notify users who are using unapproved add-ins.

        Please add Office-addins as an additional class of software inventory in CM.

        Using Office Telemetry is overkill and the current process is very tedious. We are currently investigating the Git-Hub Get-OfficeAddins but feel that this level of inventory collection should be native to CM. In addition to collecting the add-in inventory data, some reports to…

        • wish back the performance on custom RBAC web reports - fix performance problem on TVF(fn_rbac_R_System_Valid)

          I have build many custom RBAC web reports, cince moving to CB massive performance problems appear on this reports.

          As part of a man day analysys i noticed that the most of them has a validation join to the TableValuedFunction "fn_rbac_R_System_Valid".

          And finaly 6 hours of searching i found the bug that produces this performance Problem in the function named above.

          Attached are the orginal and my improved DropAndRecreate.SQL Files.

          The following sql query needs - executed with my own UserSIDs - needs more than 5 minutes without, and only 2 secounds with the improvement:

          SELECT Netbios_Name0 FROM dbo.fn_rbac_R_System_Valid(@UserSIDs);

          • New builtin reports about Windows 10 versions and builds

            ConfigMgr has a few reports about operating systems, but they are not suitable with the new Windows 10 world. Please create new Windows 10 related reports. E.g.
            - chart with Windows 10 versions (Ent/Edu/Pro) and build (including click-through to see the actual devices)
            - report that lists devices with a specific Win10 version/build in a collection
            - report with Windows 10 versions/builds in a specific collection

            These are not very difficult to create, but because every Win10 customer needs them, they should be included in the product.

            These are also needed, because:

            • Client Data Sources Data - Timestamps

              Basically, in order to create better reports on things like content download performance etc – we need more accurate time stats so:

              1. Currently the time reported appears in the DB as - 2017-11-08 00:00:00.000 – so if effect we only get the date, although I see on the client that the actual correct start time is there in the CTM WMI class, so would it be possible to report this?
              2. What would be really great (if number 1 is possible) is if you could also report the ‘End Time’ for a download. This would facilitate reports detailing download…

              • Fix bug in data warehouse report for EndPoint Protection

                In the SQL query for the datawarehouse Endpoint report the line in the query "ELSE DATEDIFF(day, AntivirusSignatureUpdateDateTime, @Now) " means that there is never more than 7 days worth of data reported in the report. This is because this line says that anything over 7 days is non-compliant because it compares against @now.

                A better comparison is against the date the data was entered i.e. "ELSE DATEDIFF(day, AntivirusSignatureUpdateDateTime, am.LastSyncTime_DW)" - which makes it relative to the Sync data rather than the date the report is run.

                • DataWarehouse reports - Filter Software Updates Compliance on a SUG

                  Currently a computer seems to be marked as non-compliant if at least one update is missing in the DW tables. There are loads of reasons why this may be justified. The DW reports would be much better if we could filter on a SUG as that would be more meaningful for end users

                  • Filter EndPoint & Software Updates DataWarehouse report via Collection

                    The datawarehouse reports are a welcome addition. However it would be much more useful to be able to filter on collection for the report "Endpoint Protection and software updates compliance - Historical". We could then drill down to collections built on OS Version etc

                    • Unable to pull Microsoft SQL Server 2014 & 2016 Edition report i.e. Standard, Enterprise, Express or Datacentre

                      I noticed SCCM is not able to pull Microsoft SQL Server 2014 & 2016 Edition report i.e. Standard, Enterprise, Express or Datacentre.

                      This I have checked with multiple customers environment & in multiple SCCM version. Its very strange that Microsoft SCCM not able to pull Microsoft product inventory properly.

                      • Report for all administrative actions

                        It would be nice to have a report to list all administrative actions performed by admins in a CM site. A report similar to "Administration activity log", but not limited to changes in the administrative roles section.

                        • Update and remove old software references in the canned reports

                          The canned reports for Asset Intelligence are great, but they are out of date.
                          I don't see any updates or references to Windows 10, and I see Windows XP still listed, as well as many out of date, unsupported softwares.

                          For an upcoming upgrade, a refresh of all those canned reports would be fantastic.

                            We have a lot of subscriptions that use the same Report Name, and it is nearly impossible to determine which Subscription is which. Can you please add a Column to the Subscription pane that will show the 'Subject' of each particular Report? this will make it much easier to identify what each subscription is. Thanks!

                                • Dataware house service point and MBAM compliance information (sccm 1702 and later)

                                  When sccm deletes old computer information (as per the scheduled system maintenace task), compliance information for Bitlocker is also removed for that computer.
                                  Can the datawarehouse servicepoint also copy MBAM compliance to the datawarehouse database (when MBAM is integrated with SCCM).

                                  • Duplicate or Copy Report Subscriptions

                                    It would be a great feature to have the ability to copy or duplicate a report subscription. Often we have to create a new report subscription that matches an existing subscription (for updates compliance) before we are done using the existing subscription.

                                    Being able to copy a subscription will save a lot of work if the description, notes, schedule are all the same. All you have to do is change the update group in the parameters.

                                    • Create email subscription for all active alerts

                                      It would be nice to have a generic subscription for all new active alerts, rather than having to create a subscription to each alert.

                                      I want to be notified of any alert that comes up by email. (Option warning/critical level).

                                      • Access user/computer focussed reports from the device/user collections

                                        If I right click on a computer in a collection there are many contextual items on the menu. It would be useful for us to be able to launch the 'compliance 5 - specific computer' report for that computer directly from the menu. there are other device centric reports focussed on the hostname that could be easily accessible.
                                        Possibly access the report from the same area as the 'primary user' link in the summary pane.

                                        • reports should show most recently used reports

                                          that when you open reporting it shows the last 5 reports you viewed. this will help for re visiting reports.
