    • Allow "uninstall content settings" to be modified using PowerShell

      Monthly updating of applications like FlashPlayer, Java, Chrome, Reader DC, Office 365 Client, etc. are repetitive and tedious, so I like to automate monthly applications updates as much as possible. When creating a new application using powershell, I cannot set the "Uninstall content setting" located under the Deployment Type and the Content tab. This allows me to save on downloading large sets of files to uninstall when either an "MSIEXEC /X {GUID}" handles it with no files required, or something like Office 365 Client where 1.5 GB is needed to install, but only 5MB or so to uninstall.

      The command…

      • Powershell commandlet to Exclude MAC address from locking to a device.

        It is easy now to go into Hierarchy Settings / Client Approval and Conflicting Records and add a USB dongle NIC to use for OSD image deployment. But in our case, we have thousands of 1:1 student devices and most vendors are no longer putting onboard NICs on the cheaper laptops schools buy. This means we have to use a lot of USB dongle NICs. Can you add a powershell script to punch through that from say a text based file? It would save a TON of time!

        • PowerShell Cmdlet to display the required software updates for a device

          I would like to have a cmdlet to display all required updates for a device, or all devices. I have made a SQL query to do this, so I know it's possible. The query is based on the "Software Updates - A Compliance" reports, but only lists required updates, not installed. This is very useful for finding any missed updates that may be important or critical.

          • Save-CMSoftwareUpdate error RPC server unavailable when connecting under a different account

            My idea is to have the scenario described below supported.

            When running Save-CMSoftwareUpdate command on a CMSite-PSDrive that connects to a ConfigMgr site in a different domain (used Get-Credential to pass credentials in New-PSDrive call) than the user account the PowerShell window is running as, I get error 'The RPC server is unavailable'.

            I can successfully change location to the PS drive, and run other ConfigMgr PS cmdlets.

            Commands:
            New-PSDrive -Name <sitecode> -PSProvider 'CMSite' -Root <siteserverFQDN> -Credential (Get-Credential)
            Set-Location <sitecode>:
            Save-CMSoftwareUpdate -SoftwareUpdateName <name> -DeploymentPackageName <name> -Verbose

            Verbose output from Save-CMSoftwareUpdate call:

              • Predeclare devices with powershell

                It's could be great to add a powershell cmdlet to import devices, like Import-predeclaredDeivces -Type Android -EMEI 000000 -Description "User A"
                Or by importing a CSV :
                Import-predeclaredDeivces -Csv c:\import.csv

                    • Run Scripts: Allow parameters to be marked as passwords so it's hidden when entering

                      Run Scripts: Allow parameters to be marked as passwords, so scripts can be executed by passing on passwords but the password isn't displayed while being typed.

                      Real life example: Using PowerShell scripts to run Deep Freeze tasks such as freezing or thawing computer. The Deep Freeze command line tool requires entering the passwords to be able to execute the commands.

                      • Improve and speed up adding or removal processes of direct members to collections, optimize handling in backend

                        We need a quick way to quickly populate or empty collections. Targets should be imported as rules without triggering other processes in the background (eval/re-built). The same also applies to removal rules.

                        Please implement something like an cmdlet “Add-CollectionMemberRules” / “Remove-CollectionMemberRules” with fast adding rules method, without delays, without rebuilding the complete collection sets in the background. The cmdlet should support especially adding rules like "DirectMembers".

                        This will help to control and steer application (ramp-up / ramp-down) rollouts, depending on device target lists, created by internal IT or delivered by business partner. The lists could based on different information…

                        • Powershell: get-cmcollection not returning ObjectPath

                          The PowerShell cmdlets Get-CMCollection and Get-CMDeviceCollection/Get-CMUserCollection) returns an empty value for "ObjectPath".

                          This is missing in both 1710 and latest TP (currenty 1801).

                          This works as expected and ObjectPath = "/":
                          Get-WmiObject -namespace "root\sms\site_$siteCode" -query "select * from SMS_Collection where CollectionID = 'SMS00001'"

                          This returns null/empty ObjectPath:
                          Get-CMCollection -Id SMS00001

                                  It would be awesome if more languages were supported for real-time Script deployment in addition to PowerShell. Maybe VBscript, Perl or Javascript, etc.

                                    We would glad to use opportunity for clearing "Script Status", re-run expired scripts and modify scripts without deleting them. We need to ran Scripts several times, and want to clear not needed statuses.

                                    • Include verbose information with import-cmpackage cmdlet

                                      The Import-CMPackage cmdlet does not provide much in the way of verbose output with the -verbose flag. This would be useful to identify what the cmdlet is performing in the background to determine if package already exists with the same name or not.

                                      Steps attempted:
                                      $Global:VerbosePreference = "Continue"
                                      $Global:DebugPreference = "Continue"
                                      $Global:CMPSDebugLogging = $true

                                      import-cmpackage -ImportFilePath "\\localhost\c$\Users\Testing\TestPkg.zip" -Verbose

                                      Output: Verbose: Performing the operation "Import" on target "Package: ".

                                      Trace-Command -Name metadata,parameterbinding,cmdlet -Expression {Import-CMPackage -ImportFilePath "\\localhost\c$\Users\Testing\TestPkg.zip" -WhatIf} -PSHost

                                      • Should support "run as" functionality when executing scripts (Applications, Run Scripts, etc.)

                                        SCCM PowerShell scripts running in a corporate environment are hobbled due to the NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM context. I have multiple cases where I could create an Application that just runs a PowerShell script but the script needs to run as a domain admin to do what it has to. The new Scripts feature also needs run-as functionality for fire & forget type tasks. Including a run-as facility in SCCM would significantly extend the product's flexibility.

                                        • Run Scripts: Should be able to invoke from Deployment Status Node

                                          Run scripts brought a brand new model to handle client troubleshooting, but it can run from collections only.
                                          it would have been super useful to be able to run it on a machine\category from the Deployment Status node and then maintain clients with in progress \ unknown \ active \ inactive state.
                                          today when we have a list of computers who didn't report their status we need to manually create a collection with these clients to run a scripts and there's not even a built-in way to create a collection from the asset details
