    • Allow normal SQL queries instead of WQL

      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.

            • 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.

              • Windows AutoPilot Device Information (TP 1802)

                It would be great if we could be a little more granular with this report and target it at a specific collection. I appreciate we can't add the device name into the report as it takes away the export to csv functionality but targeting a collection would help us more easily identify which machines we are importing into AutoPilot.

                • Reporting Subscriptions - Add Alerts if subscription fails

                  Currently, there is no other way to check that report subscriptions have executed correctly but to go in the console and check the Status column for each subscription.

                  It would be nice to add the possibility to create alerts on report subscription.

                  Benefits:
                  - admins & report users can be notified of reporting errors, without having to verify in the console
                  - admins no longer miss these errors because they check the console only seldom
                  - admins can take immediate action to investigate and fix the error

                    • 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);

                              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.
