  1. Add ability to resize the new "Enter a PowerShell script" window

    It would've been nice to have the ability to resize the new "Enter a PowerShell script" window to chech that everything looks good. The default windows is quite narrow. Maybe add som nice colour formatting to get a better overview.

  2. Get-CMScript by ScriptGUID

    Get-CMScript does not provide on option to get scripts by scriptGUID. CMScripts are allowed to have the same name so we need a variable that is unique, ScriptGUID will do that. Currently I am not able to pass that value through Get-CMScript.

  3. Revamp ConfigMgr's cluster patching, and remove it from PreRelease

    Cluster patching feature was added in #SCCM CB 1602, but has been in prelease for a long time. It needs to:
    1) Have improved/revamped UI
    2) Remove dependency on collections
    3) Orchestrate patching for any machines, not just servers/clusters
    4) Remove the feature from prerelease

  4. Integrate a GitHub (or GitHub Enterprise) Repository/Branch as the source of "Software Library\Scripts"

    It would be great if you could specify a Git Repository and Branch as the source of the contents of the Scripts Folder. This would allow the approvals to be managed in GitHub with all the abilities around code review and testing.
    It could still require an admin approval in the console which Version of the script should be used. It would also make rollbacks to an earlier version very easy.
    If you allow having "folders" in the Script folder, each of them could be a repository. You still should need to approve which version to run, but MVPs couldā€¦

  5. Task sequence media - compute space does not consider removed applications/packages

    When creating stand-alone media you have the option to select which Applications,Packages and driver packages it should include onto the media or not. After clicking next on the summary page the process of starting the media launches. in the createTSMedia.log you can see that at some point the process starts to compute volume layout. It seems that the compute of the volume layout does take into account the software you selected to not be on the media. Therefore you might get the message that you do not have enough space on the USBFD media altough this is not trough. Atā€¦

  6. Improve SCCM's built in WSUS cleanup and maintenance task

    Preview SCCM versions have a basic WSUS cleanup and maintenance task. It should be evolved and expanded to include SQL index optimization, IIS configuration optimization, and deletes of declined updates.

  8. CM Messaging SDK Documentation shouldn't be a .chm help file AND...

    The docs that exist for the CM Messaging (note, the messaging SDK is not a part of the larger CM SDK docs here https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh442686(v=cmsdk.16).aspx) is currently a .chm Help file, which is lovably nostalgic.

    However it doesn't do justice to the power of the SDK. For instance, Discovery and hardware inventory are barely covered in the SDK docs. I'm troubleshooting an issue now with the Messaging SDK in which a fake CM Client appears with Windows 6.2 NT Workstation, even though it is a fully patched Win10 machine. Weird stuff.

    Anyway, it would be great if the docs wereā€¦

  9. Folder Redirection Improvements to Permit OneDrive

    Currently the folder redirection feature in SCCM doesn't take an environmental variable as a good path; it requires \SERVER\SHARE.

    With OneDrive being common place in Office 365, please allow us to enter a command such as:

    %userprofile%<SyncFolder>

    where Sync folder is the name of your organization's onedrive folder.

    as documented by the Office team.

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/redirect-known-folders-to-onedrive-for-business-e1b3963c-7c6c-4694-9f2f-fb8005d9ef12

    So that we can use SCCM to manage this.

    Thanks! :)

  10. ConfigMgr Web Console

    Introduce ConfigMgr Web Console and remove the need to update the console on every device with each SCCM CB Upgrade as local admin rights are needed to update the console.

    The ConfigMgr Web Console might be similar to Azure Portal with Microsoft Intune.

    With SCCM CB updates getting released more frequently than before, this will provide benefits and ease of management. The Admins can connect to the ConfigMgr console from any computer in the organisation without the need to install it.

  12. Quick view devices that require an update from the Software Library

    At the moment there is no quick way to see which particular machines require an update. You can run a report from Monitoring, but that means identifying the update then going back to reports and running the appropriate report.

    You can however see the the number of devices that require an update when looking at that particular update. A simple "More Details" button here would be useful which would show the machines that require the update or are compliant etc, without needing to run a report.

    This applies to both Software Updates and Windows 10 Updates for feature updates.

  13. Run Scripts: Need cmdlets to support feature

    Create cmdlets for the new in console Powershell scripts. Some good ones would be new Script Deployment and get script results.

    EX:
    New-CMPSScriptDeployment -Name "Script Name" -CollectionName "Collection Name"

  14. Add TPM and SecureBoot task sequence variables

    Please give us task sequence variables for the following because WMI can be unreliable or sometimes can't be used. These would be nice to have in order to create conditions for performing actions such as enabling/disabling TPM and SecureBoot.

    TPM enabled/disabled
    TPM activated/deactivated
    TPM owned/not owned
    SecureBoot enabled/disabled

    Hi,

    Updating status to started – see

    Our 2002 release added _TSSecureBoot
    See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion

    Use this variable to determine the state of secure boot on a UEFI-enabled device. The variable can have one of the following values:

    NA: The associated registry value doesn’t exist, which means the device doesn’t support secure boot.
    Enabled: The device has secure boot enabled.
    Disabled: The device has secure boot disabled.

    For TPM that’s achievable with task sequence conditions – I’ll look to add something to the Community Hub to demonstrate.

  15. Filter for Datetime "between" for Support Center Logfile Viewer

    I would be great to have a between Filter for Datetime in the Support Center Logfile Viewer.
    Like this:
    Include: 2017-03-08 11:00:12.323 <->2017-03-09 09:00:12.323

  16. Create a PowerShell cmdlet too add/edit/remove duplicate hardware identifiers

    New-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier
    Set-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier
    Remove-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier

    Please create cmdlets to add/edit/remove duplicate hardware identifiers. We have a large organization and those pesky Lenovo Yoga's get a USB to Ethernet dongle with each one. We have over 500 dongles currently, and I don't see a way to automate importing those MAC addresses. Thanks!

    Thanks for your feedback and suggestions, updating status to started.

    We added these CmdLets in our 1910 release:
    New-CMDuplicateHardwareIdGuid
    New-CMDuplicateHardwareIdMacAddress
    Remove-CMDuplicateHardwareIdGuid
    Remove-CMDuplicateHardwareIdMacAddress

    More details here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/sccm/1910-release-notes?view=sccm-ps

    Please try them out and share any feedback you may have, then I’ll likely close this item with our 2002 release.

  17. More characters in the OSD Task Sequence description

    I would like more space in the OSD Task Sequence description field (and possibly even include a link) so that we can adequately tell people what's required before and after running the Task Sequence and to tell them where to find help.

    At the moment, we only have 2-3 lines of text available.

    Perhaps replicate what's currently available in the application model with the Localised description on the Application catalog tab.

    Updating status to started. see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.

    Our 2010 Technical Preview is released today.

    Doc: https://docs.microsoft.com/mem/configmgr/core/get-started/2020/technical-preview-2010
    Blog: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/configuration-manager-blog/view-syntax-highlighting-for-scripts-and-queries-in/ba-p/1740062

    This release includes changes to the task sequence properties – the limit is now increased to 512 characters.
    (I neglected to make the same change to the wizard, I’ll get to that in the future)

  18. Allow exclusion of OU's from Active Directory System Discovery

    Have the ability to include/exclude certain OU's from both Active Directory User and System Discovery.

    E.G. I might have an "All Users and Groups" OU at the root domain level, which may contain sub OU's containing service accounts or mailbox accounts etc. that I don't want being picked up by discovery. The ability to pick which sub OU's to discover/not discover would be really handy in this scenario. The same applies for system/computer discovery also.

  19. Add collection location in collection property

    Add info of the "Location" if you search for collection.
    e.g. we use Folders and subfolder for companies. and each time we search for collections we dont know the Location.
    we got more than 5000 collections.. where this is tricky to find out via
    Eyes .

  20. Include the serviceui.exe functionality in task sequence environment by default

    Many organizations create their own front-ends for ConfigMgr Task Sequences (or leverage popular third-party ones like OSD++, Pretty Good Front End, etc.). However, these only are able to be used when the task sequence is in WinPE.

    Please add the serviceui.exe functionality into the default task sequence environment so it is possible to display Light Touch prompts when starting the task sequence from an existing operating system. Including serviceui.exe would be enough, or the functionality to launch interactive UI could be added to the environment natively.
