  1. Copy Administrative Categories from one application to another

    Would love to be able to copy Administrative Categories from one application to another. My org uses these A LOT and it is cumbersome to go through a long list of checkboxes to apply them all to a new application. A way to copy them would save quite a bit of time and would reduce errors.

    The list can be copied from the General Information tab, could that be field changed to an input field for copy/paste? Maybe a button for "Copy From Another Application" could be there that would let you choose a source application?

  2. Application Name in Status of App Group Install

    When deploying an Application group, it would be nice in Software Center if the name of the individual app that was installing would show in the status.

  3. Application Group reboot behaviour

    Given a scenario of an application group which contains more than one application: if any application in that group requires a reboot the whole application group is terminated with an error (AppGroupHandler - InternalProcessAppRules failed with error 0x87d0032e) even though the application which demanded the reboot was installed correctly.

    The expected behaviour is to perform the reboot and then continue with the next application in line in the application group after the reboot.

    It would be beneficial if any reboot request in the application group process were internally remembered and only one reboot request would be sent to the user…

  4. Install Behavior not met not shown as Error in Monitoring

    The ability to use Install Behavior for Applications that an Executable must be closed is great.
    But in Monitoring the Application Deployment shows as an Error if the Executable was running when the Application tried to install itself. In the Error Description it states “One or more processes are running and prevent enforcement action”
    Why can’t it be shown under Requirements Not Met or a new Category but not as an Error? I don’t see it as an error and so a lot of Deployments show tons of Errors, that are not Errors, only because the Application is waiting for…

  6. Install Behavior prompt not showing in front of Software Center

    When using the "Install Behavior" options on a deployment type for an application, the prompt to close the applications does not come to the front of the software center and to the center of the end users attention, please can you fix this?

  7. Orchestration groups - extend with more deployment types

    Right now the OG feature only supports software Update deployments.
    Extend this feature to include application deployments, TS deployments and application group deployments.
    This will increase the value of OG.

  8. Available Applications that a user initiates in Software Center should ignore maintenance window for all dependencies and superseded apps

    When a user clicks on an application in Software Center while it is available (or pre-deadline) then all dependent and superseded applications should ignore the user's maintenance window. The current behavior is that if a reboot is needed in the chain then the user has to click install again in Software Center. This could be handled by a deployment option so that the current default behavior isn't impacted.

    Example:
    User Clicks on App1
    App1 has a dependency on App2
    App2 requires reboot
    When user clicks App1, App2 should install, then reboot, then App1 should complete installation and reboot if needed…

  9. Separate install and uninstall requirements

    Application requirements are set to make sure the install routine completes successfully, for example enough free disk space, minimum RAM, etc. These requirements are not the same for running the uninstall routine successfully.

    Consider an application requires 10GB hard disk space to install. It is installed successfully. Later, free hard disk space drops below 10GB so the application is hidden in Software Center. The user cannot now uninstall the application using Software Center.

  10. Application Group Reference

    We need the ability to easily see which application is included in which application group.

    This could be done similar to dependency references in the "References" tab of the application.

  11. Add "Windows 10 Enterprise for Virtual Desktops" in the “Operating system” of requirements as an option”

    The provided Application Model Operation System Conditions for Windows 10 versions are limited in scope. Currently the Operator options for Windows 10 are two choices.

    Windows 10 (Select This to get the two below)
    All Windows 10 (ARM64)
    All Windows 10 (64-bit)
    All Windows 10 (32-bit)

    We're using "Windows 10 Enterprise for Virtual Desktops" and we're not able to select this operating system from here.

    Please add "Windows 10 Enterprise for Virtual Desktops" under windows 10 node or please provide a way to edit this list.

    Thank you.

  12. Application dependency to upgraded application

    Application dependency is causing issues in the following scenario.

    "MainApp Addon 1.0" has a dependency on either "MainApp 1.0" or "MainApp 1.1".
    MainApp 1.1 superseeds MainApp 1.0 with uninstall checkbox.
    Both "MainApp 1.0" and "MainApp Addon 1.0" is installed on computer.
    When trying to update "MainApp 1.0" to "MainApp 1.1" the log "AppIntentEval.log" will spit out errors and app upgrade will not occur.

    Also new computers will have issues trying to install "MainApp 1.0" and "MainApp Addon 1.0".

    This can cause issues in upgrade scenarios of application and workarounds that needs to be created.

  13. Better Integration with AppV AutoCleanUp

    At present, if an AppV has been only published to one user, or globally for the machine, and the AppV setting 'AutoCleanUp' has been enabled, when the AppV is removed it is 'Unpublished' by the CCM client but removed by the 'AutoCleanUp' process meaning the subsequent 'Removal' command from the CCM client fails and Software Center hence reports the removal as a Fail.

    This needs to be addressed.

  15. Windows Application Packager (WinGet) Integration

    I would like configmgr to integrate with winget.

    https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/windows-package-manager-preview/

    Please allow me to simply tell winget to install/uninstall an application and allow sccm to monitor the result codes. Provide winget as a part of the sccm client install. Reduce my work effort to deploy applications!

    This should be a native deployment type as well. Let sccm ingest all the possible applications winget supports!

    Allow application content to be stored via Microsoft Connected Cache!

  16. Uninstall Failed - Rule is in Conflict, Show Conflicting Deployment

    Currently, we are in the process of cleaning up installed applications. We have been seeing rule is in conflict of other rules more frequently. On the Deployment view we see More Detail including the conflicting application, which is the application we are trying to remove. That application has no other deployments than the uninstall. Unfortunately it does not show the deployment that is causing this behavior. I'm aware you can not have available or required (install) deployments, however this goes beyond that.

  18. Add "Remove Application" task to a task sequence

    There is a "Install Software" option in the drop down list when one creates a task sequence. It will be nice if there is also a "Remove Software" option in the drop down list too. While it is possible to just deploy to uninstall just one MSI application, it will be nice if one can uninstall multiple MSI application in a task sequence.

  19. Detection method scripts should run with -File

    Currently, application detection method scripts are ran in such a way that it causes issues with certain levels of PowerShell Constrained Language Mode. An example of how scripts are run is below.

    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\PowerShell.exe" -NoLogo -Noninteractive -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass "& 'C:\WINDOWS\CCM\SystemTemp\11a53fac-8144-438e-aa01-6d2378be848b.ps1'"

    To better allow detection method scripts to be ran under Constrained Language mode, the script should be ran with -File instead of with the call operator &.

    With the current configuration it is not possible to use PowerShell based detection methods in some scenarios, reducing their usefulness.

    See this idea for more info. https://ideas.patchmypc.com/ideas/PATCHMYPC-I-440

  20. Web application shortcut location

    When creating a web application, it would be great if we could choose the location it appears rather than just the program menu.
