  1. Provide a consistent deployment strategy for updating MS applications

    Different products teams decide how they will deploy there updates and various methods are needed to control deployments.
    Example: MS 365 Apps, Edge, AIP are available as software updates which is very good. OneDrive they ask you to go out to this site and check when the update will be available to the enterprise ring. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/onedrive-release-notes-845dcf18-f921-435e-bf28-4e24b95e5fc0?ui=en-us&rs=en-us&ad=us. You then have to download it and deploy it before the date to stop it from pulling down from the internet. Teams no way to control it and no idea when it will update. PowerBi have to go out download and deploy it.ā€¦

  2. Can expiration setting be split for Software Updates and Feature Updates.

    Recently, we meet old feature update has been refreshed bundle issue and this make previous feature update be superseded by later one. Previous feature update become expired and removed from the update deployment group. Can we split expiration setting for normal security updates and feature update so that the feature update refresh will not make old feature update be explired?

  3. Updates

    Please stop updating laptops or PC in between work. This issue needs to be fixed. There should be an option to set the update or restart. And it should also ask permission before restarting. This way we donā€™t lose our unsaved data.

  6. Download third party updates directly from WSUS

    When third party updates are configured and an update is published from a third party catalog, such as Dell:s or HP:s driver catalog, it can be deployed to a collection. When this is done the clients try to download it directly from WSUS.
    The download fails with a bits errorcode (0x80190194) which basically means a 404. I managed to fix that but got stuck on a content hash verification error.

    I would like to see the ability to use the setting "No deployment package" on an ADR which deploys third party updates but instead of pointing the clients to Microsoft,ā€¦

  7. Maximum run time on 3rd party updates

    It would be nice if you could set max run time for 3rd party updates in the same "software update point component properties > Maximum run time"
    Default for updates is now 5/10 mins depending on when your CM was built
    And some updates might just take much longer to install

  9. enable publish third party content from Software Update Group Members

    It would be very useful to be able to create a Software Update Group of Third Party updates and then use the context right-click menu to publish from the Update Group itself.

  10. Allow control over where Software Update Downloads come from for Internet Clients

    Currently, internet and internet only clients are FORCED to download their updates from Windows Update even if the content is deployed to the CMG. If you do not have split tunneling enabled for these URLs and the clients are on VPN then this will cause issues. This setting should not be forced to be one way or another and should a control option to either direct clients to the CMG or the Windows Update URL based on the setting in the deployment.

  11. Change how software update maximum runtime is used in maintenance windows

    Currently, when a software update group is deployed to a device with a maintenance window, the estimated time required is calculated from the maximum runtime of each update. If this time is longer than the available maintenance window, the updates are not installed. The maximum runtime of updates has been increasing and the total maximum runtime is often longer than reasonable maintenance windows.

    I propose instead of calculating the total maximum runtime, each update be handled individually and compared to the remaining time in the maintenance window. For example, update 1 has a maximum runtime of 60 minutes. There isā€¦

  12. Make SUP products searchable

    Let's improve the Software Update Point Component Properties window by adding a text input box to allow searching/filtering through the available products.

    Scrolling through the list is not a user-friendly approach. Add to that the rather frequent product name changes and additions.

    A search box would make it easier to find and select the desired products in the list.

  13. Ability to deploy ARM64 Hardware drivers and Firmware with SCCM WSUS

    With all ARM64 firmware and driver updates only available from WU and no OEMs offering direct downloads; please provide the ability for WSUS to import ARM64 firmware and drivers. Many enterprise companies cannot use Intune to manage as it disconnects reporting and ease of deployment managment from SCCM. Please include all OEM ARM64 not just Surface Pro X.

  14. SCUP has a package limit of 2GB

    SCUP has a package limit of 2GB built into the code:

    newItem.FileSize = Convert.ToInt32(new FileInfo(validPackageSource).Length);
    --- This is an Int32, and the max size of an Int32 is 2GB.

    This should be changed to either UINT or ULONG to allow for larger update packages.

  15. Orchestration Groups query

    Make it possible to add also "Membership rules" to Orchestration Groups.
    Static lists are outdated. Server groups was better.

  16. M365 Offline Updates Exporter Utility - Language Selection

    M365 Offline Updates Exporter Utility - Language Selection

    Provide language option for OfficeUpdateExporter.exe so that only content related to language of choice is downloaded for an update (rather than update content for all languages). This would reduce a significant amount of time and disk space when gathering M365 App updates.

  17. Customisation of restart message

    The pop-up message displayed requiring the user to restart the pc after a software or update is intstall does not display information regarding the software requiring restart. The client settings in SCCM does not provide the possibility of making any such granular configuration. I therefore request Microsoft to provide a way of customising the pop-up messages in the concole

  18. Context menue - ADD function "Expired update"

    Context menue - ADD function "Expired update"

    it would make live easier to expire updates directly in the memcm console instead of using powershell or the WSUS...

    specially in the 3rd party patching area it would make sense to get rid of unwanted updates in an easy professional and smart way...

  19. Auto Phased Deployment

    Scenario: Right now I have about 8000 computers that need feature updates. I don't want to update them all at one time. It would be nice to tell CM to update one big collection, but do a set number per week. For instance, create a collection of 8000 machines, and set it to update 250 per week until it is done, or set a gradual duration of say 6 months to update the whole collection. This would work great for large application deployments as well. This way, the deployment could also be stopped if problems arise.

  20. Have Software Centre Updates include more info than status: past due will be installed

    Instead of having a status: past due will be installed. Include a date and time when the update will either try to be installed or will retry.
