  1. Add ESU update classification

    Can you please add an update classification called "ESU" or something like that so that we can filter our ADRs to make updates work properly with ESU? (It seems that if we get a single update that is not allowed for ESU added to our software update group it will make all updates not available.

  2. Control SUP source from boundary groups

    It would be good if we could control SUP download priority from boundary groups.
    Scenario is when on VPN ip range client should first try to get updates from Microsoft WSUS servers but failover to internal if they are unable to (example for failover back to internal is 3rd party patches).
    And for internal clients if they fail to get update from local DP try to get it from internet so traffic is not routed all the way to next internal datacenter.

  3. Include a Patch Tuesday Phases template that can create both even and odd month ADR's to eliminate patching gaps

    For those that use phases (test, pilot, production) for monthly software update deployments with multiple collections before deploying to production, two ADR's that run every other month need to be created (one for odd months and one for even months) with deployments for each patch phase, otherwise there are potentially multiple week gaps in patching the environment. Guidance on configuring even and odd ADR's should also be added to the ConfigMgr online software update documentation.

  5. Add Ability to Uninstall KBs

    With all the Microsoft Update issues over the past year or so it would be useful to have the built-in ability to push an uninstall of a KB from the SCCM console.

    WSUS services already have this ability by declining an update and approving it for removal. No such functionality exists inside the SCCM console.

    Simply waiting for a future update that may correct a bad KB is not viable for many enterprises.

    Neither is instructing users on how to uninstall KBs on their own from Control Panel as all of our users do not have sufficient permissions to doā€¦

  6. More flexibility in deployment schedule for ADR deadlines

    It would be nice to have the same scheduling options available in the ADR eval schedule and the deployment schedule. I have multiple release deployments that occur on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Thursday. If the ADR deployment available and deadlines had those options it would be cool...

  8. Control when expired software updates force a package and content refresh

    When you have a large SCCM environment (100+ DP's), if a software update expires it forces a software update package to update immediately and refreshes content across all DP's with that content. This causes network resource issues if the package is quite large, so there needs to be greater control over when the expired update kicks off a package clean up and content refresh. Currently there is a hard-coded 3 hour period between checks, this should be controllable to be able to run more or less often, or at specific times once or twice a day.

  9. Download Office 365 Updates from a connection point

    Need the ability to pull Office 365 Updates from a server that is not the primary site server. This would be similar to the CMG connection point or Service connection point.

  10. Office 365 Updates via SUP - Add a Customization tab for Office Customization Toolkit

    Deploying Office 365 updates via the Software Update Point works pretty well, especially when upgrading to a feature release! Upgrading from 1808 Semi-Annual Channel to 1908 Semi-Annual Channel works great! However I'd like to request more granular control of the update.

    When you right click on an Office 365 update --> Properties, it would be awesome to have a tab that gives you the Office Customization Toolkit. OCT should give you the ability to change channels, change bitness, unselect programs like Teams or OneNote.

    I understand that we can create a whole new Office 365 application package and deploy toā€¦

  11. Automatic cleanup in Deployment Packages

    It would be great to have the option to enable automatic cleanup of expired/superseeded updates that are in Deployment Packages. Some Deployment Packages grows very large if they are left unattended, for example patches for O365 are large and would be nice to have the option to remove these either while running the ADR or a Maintenance Task. A live example was when I was deploying the latest 2020-01 O365 patches the package was 15GB in size, after removing the past few months patches it shrunk to about 3GB in size.

  12. Add Software Updates to existing Software Update Group while manually downloading an update

    It would be nice to have the option to add updates that you, for some reason, manually download in the Software Updates node to an existing Software Update Group.

    It's not much work having to go back to the console after the wizard is complete and add them but would be a nice addition to the 'Download'-wizard for Software Updates.

  14. Remove unreferenced update package folders

    When a software update sync cycle run, it will not remove unreferenced package folders from the UpdateServicePackages folders.

    Setting a checkbox to decide whether or not to clean those folders. Since now it is being used to store third party updates and the folder could get big.

  15. SCCM compliance reporting should work on clients that use WUfB

    Right now I have no compliance data for a client's Windows Updates in SCCM if I enable WUfB on the client. My organization does not want to use Azure AD for domain joins nor Windows Analytics for update compliance information. Without compliance information in SCCM, we cannot use WUfB which has the superior update experience over ConfigMan software updates. We want the WUfB superior update experience without the cloud integration.

    Thanks.

  16. Add an option for Weeks under Supersedence Rules in Software Update Point Component

    For nearly all months, we only need to keep superseded updates for an additional week or two and not a full month. The current options ask for months to wait before a superseded software update is expired. Adding a Weeks option will allow for us to keep those superseded updates, but for a shorter period of time.

  17. Orchestration Groups Microsoft Endpoint Congfiguration Manager 1910

    I know in SCCM Tech Preview 1909, they talked about Orchestration Groups for servers. Why wasn't this feature added in to the new Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager 1910? Will this be added in the next iteration? From reading this would be a good feature to have, when it comes to installing updates on cluster servers.

  18. Office 2019 updates are syncing to wsus as the "Office 365 Client" product catagory instead of the "Office 2019" product catagory.

    Office 2019 updates are synchronizing to SUP/WSUS under the "Office 365 Client" product category instead of the "Office 2019" product category. Nothing actually syncs as "Office 2019." Please list Office 2019 updates as "Office 2019" updates instead of "Office 365 Client" updates. It makes it difficult to separate the packages and to build proper ADRs.

  19. Enable Publishing 3rd Party updates on SUG

    Currently we can publish third party updates from "All Software Updates" before adding them to a SUG. It would be great if we get a feature which will allow is to publish selected 3rd party updates in SUG on a whole and not individual or multiple selections.
