  1. SMS_ConfigurationItemLatest.ObjectPath property is null

    Both the iResultObject from Get-CMConfigurationItem and the SMS_ConfigurationItemLatest object returned from a WMI query have a null value as the objectpath property.

    Current workaround is to make recursive queries on SMS_ObjectContainerNode to get the ObjectPath of these objects.

    • Import/Export Cmdlet Parameter aliases

      Could we please have a common alias for the file path parameters in the various import/export cmdlets?

      For example, currently we have:
      1. Export-CMBaseline uses -Path to set output path, and
      2. Export-CMTaskSequence uses -ExportFilePath.

      Then we have:
      1. Import-CMBaseline using -FileName to determine location of exported files
      2. Import-CMApplication using -FilePath,
      3. Import-CMTasksequence using -Path.

      A common alias like "Path" or "FilePath" for all these parameters will be very handy in reducing complexity of scripts calling your Cmdlets.

      • New-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment missing -RequirePostRebootFullScan option.

        The New-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment command is missing the -RequirePostRebootFullScan option. This should be added similar to the New-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment command.

        • Run Scripts: scripts results does not show systems offline or failed

          The SCCM scripts feature is new and so far works very well, however there is no feedback on systems offline or failed. The lower pie graph shows the numbers offline/failed but you cannot view them. The results tab only shows return codes of systems that actually executed scripts.

          • Run Scripts: Create Collection based off of results

            The scripts feature provides a powerful feature to provide real time information on an enterprise, that hardware inventory may not provide. It would be very helpful if you could create a collection based on the results of Script, or add the machines to an existing collection natively through the CM Console.

            • Run Script: Ability to pass collection variables

              I want to run a powershell script with the new Run Script, with the ability to see the collection id, collection variables, collection members that script is being ran against. The script runs on the local system as SYSTEM so it can't reach back to SCCM to obtain this information. I know you can add credentials to allow this, but a simple GET-CMRunScriptCollectionName or GET-CMRunScriptCollectionVariables would be nice.

              • Provide cmdlet to get deployment status summarization statistics

                Need a cmdlet to gather/run a deployment status summarization. Providing the deployment statistics with a list of each device and its current state.

                In this way I could automate against which systems are currently in error/unknown. There is no simple way to do this outside of the GUI, and I may have dozens of deployments to verify against.

                I've seen some possibilities using SQL queries to join 3-4 tables together to pull this off, but it lacks message state value translations. The data coming back doesn't have meaning.

                Its simple... I need to get a list of devices that are…

                • Add a cmdlet to delete (or at least disable) a Client Settings deployment (cmclientsettingsdeployment)

                  There is currently no cmdlet to delete or disable a deployment of Client Settings. You can create a deployment by using the Start-CMClientSettingDeployment cmdlet but there is absolutely no way of stopping, deleting, or disabling the deployment. If you run a Get-CMDeployment against a collection, it only returns all deployments except a Client Setting.

                    • Powershell 6.x support everywhere in SCCM

                      Explicitly being able to select the option of using PowerShell 6.x in scripts/compliance rules/task sequences would be a good future thinking feature to adopt as soon as possible.

                      Ideally a version option built in to SCCM like that for x32/64 OS, but for PS 5.1/6.x would make this interesting.

                                      • Run Scripts: Ability to run unapproved scripts on a test collection

                                        The "run script" feature is fantastic, but somewhat clunky when multiple lower level admins are adding scripts, as they can't be tested before approval.

                                        It would be great if we could designate a "development" collection for running scripts that have not been approved yet.

                                        • Save-CMSoftwareUpdate - Add parameter to specify download source path (UNC\Network)

                                          When using this cmdlet to download updates from an update group into an update package, where is the download source and is it possible to specify a custom location?

                                          For example, if I wanted to specify my download source as a WSUS content folder on another server I could I do something like this.
                                          Save-CMSoftwareUpdate -SoftwareUpdateGroupName $mySUG -DeploymentPackageName $mySUPkg -SoftwareUpdateLanguage "English" -DownloadLocation "\\myWsusServer\wsuscontent"

                                          This would be helpful in the following scenario, let's say we have a stand-alone primary that cannot be connected to the internet due to a business requirement, but has access to an upstream WSUS server that downloads…
