  1. Prompt users for reboot, but NEVER force it

    The reboot settings only allow for the user to postpone a reboot for up to 24 hours. Why can't we expand that time or just keep reminding them forever until they reboot themselves? The longer that they have been pending a reboot, remind (pester) them more frequently. Or auto reboot if nobody is logged on.

  2. Complete Group Policy Integration

    Configuration Manager should be able to configure all aspects of a workstation that can be done using other Microsoft tools. Some group policy items already exist such as folder redirection and Firewall Policies. It would be great if Firewall could be expanded to include creation of firewall exceptions. It would also be great if we could configure all group policies from within SCCM perhaps using compliance settings.

  3. DSC to replace or compliment basline feature

    DSC is a wonderful framework for handling baseline configurations across Windows and Linux machines, but it's completely unsupported in SCCM directly. While a Pull server is certainly more simplistic than an SCCM hierarchy, it would still be very beneficial to have some integration in a couple of areas:

    Management Points can easily be configured to host mof configurations for clients, and a new client policy class for allowing the SCCM agent to configure the pull server settings on a host would be great. Alternatively a new role could be made ... not sure that would feel as elegant.

    The baselineā€¦

  4. Add Ability to Remediate Existential Registry Setting Compliance Items

    Currently you cannot auto-remediate a registry compliance item with an existential rule. I should be able to select an option to auto-remediate to have a setting removed much like you can to set a value.

  5. Console UI function to invoke evaluation of baselines on clients

    Being able to invoke evaluation of baselines deployed to certain Client or device collection from the Console UI would be very helpful.

    One way to do it would be to add the option in to the Client Notification pane or also known as the "right click tools" see Attached file.

    I have an old blog post on how to invoke evaluation with the help of Powershell but adding it in to the Console UI would be very nice.

  6. Allow defining custom OMA-URI settings for Windows 10 clients with ConfigMgr client

    Currently you cannot define custom OMA-URI settings for Windows 10 clients with ConfigMgr client. You can only define quite limited set of settings. Unfortunately, there are some important OMA-URI settings that should be set on all Windows 10 clients (DataProtection/AllowDirectMemoryAccess), which are not part of limited available settings.

    This is now one example, but there will be other examples in the future.

    Currently, there is not good way to deploy the setting easily to all clients in the environment.

  8. More accurate registry Compliance Settings

    When creating the Configuration Item (Create Configuration Item Wizard, Settings step) and choosing Registry setting type for the Create Setting window, there are some bizarre registry types mentioned in Data type drop-down box: String, Integer, Date and Time, Floating Point, Version and String Array. Most of these data types are all REG_SZ type. But where is REG_MULTI_SZ? REG_EXPAND_SZ? REG_DWORD? REG_QWORD? REG_BINARY?
    There is also possibility to set/check compliance for those registry settings with script, but why the Registry Configuration Item in first place?
    These actual registry data types need to be implemented instead of/additionally to currently existing ones.

  9. Enable All Subfolders search for Compliance Settings

    Currently you cannot search 'All Subfolders' within Configuration Items or Configuration Baselines. You can only search the current node/folder.

  10. Hide configuration baselines targeted to mobile devices on Windows clients

    In a hybrid environment all user targeted baselines are displayed on Configuration Manager Control Panel utility. In the attached picture from a Windows 10 client, you can see that there are baselines that make sense only on iOS/Android/WP devices.

    Those baselines shouldn't be visible on Windows ConfigMgr client. They just confuse users/admins.

  11. Add auto remediation to a Software Update compliance baseline

    At present SU compliance baselines can identify missing updates but not remediate by installing them. Please add the option to have the missing updates installed either from a DP or Microsoft Update.

  12. sccm windows firewall policies feature

    expand the windows firewall policies feature to allow you to create actual firewall rules and policies on devices. currently you can only enable or disable the local host firewall. would be great to have more granular control and have a central way of managing host firewalls without using GPOs.

  13. If you set "Configuration Baselines" of "Windows Defender Firewall Policy", the event "Invalid namespace" occur

    If you set "Configuration Baselines" of "Windows Defender Firewall Policy", the event "Invalid namespace" occurs as "search configuration error".
    This event only occurs in workgroup environments, but not in domain environments.

    The workgroup client wishes that this function can be used because domain GPO can not be used.

  14. Allow functionality for updating HKCU policy registry keys in user context with Compliance Settings

    Currently, the default permissions on HKCU policy keys result in an access denied error when trying to remediate these keys in the user context. The workaround of running a script in the system context and updating HKU\[SID] keys adds considerable complexity to managing these keys with Compliance Settings. It would be convenient to have the functionality of being able to update these keys in the user context, much like the current functionality in Group Policy Preferences.

  15. Integrate the the SCAP Extensions. Make it easier to use, faster, and include dashboards\reports.

    1. Make a GUI for running the SCAP extensions. Preferably integrate the SCAP extensions into SCCM so SCAPtoDCM.exe can be run from right clicking Compliance Settings
    2. Reduce the amount of PowerShell code created in each Configuration Item (CI). A CI that checks for the existence of a registry key is very long. Additionally, some of the CIā€™s will either timeout or require an increase in the timeout time which could affect client performance.
    3. CIā€™s created should not use the oval ID as its name as it cannot be correlated to practical information. In the case of DISA STIGS,ā€¦

  17. Configuration Baseline Workflow

    I'd like to see the configuration baselines expanded to include a workflow option similar to creating a task sequence.

    This in my view should allow for conditional operators (if,or,else) to allow for greater flexibility to control a compliance state on multiple configuration items. If configuration items within this could also allow for separate or multiple options of remediation actions it would be great.

    Furthermore if the values determined in individual configuration items could be assigned to named variables within this workflow it would allow for complex remediation tasks including passing through all or some these variables to script driven remediationā€¦

  18. Run Scripts: Expand Uses to Applications and Configuration Items

    With 1902 we have the ability to now link a script, in the "Run Scripts" feature, to a step in a task sequence. This is a great step forward, but it could be expanded more.

    A number of businesses have a need for version support/change management/auditing, etc. Its also nice to have your scripts located in ONE location, rather than many. It would be awesome if we could leverage the current Run Scripts as more of a repository, and allow them to not only be used for the actual "Run Scripts" feature, and in task sequences, but also in CI'sā€¦

  19. Compliance state always 'Compliant' when remediation script runs

    Use the output from Remediation to test and see if it was actually successful rather than assuming it was successful. Only way is to have a true non-compliance is to throw a non-zero exit code when using a script.

    For more details see: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/0f0f3e6f-7e9f-4376-a926-fc0b6aef5bf1/sccm-compliance-state-always-compliant-when-remediation-script-runs

  20. Ability to evaluate device compliance via software center

    In the compliance section of Software Center it should be possible to diagnose the following:
    1. Check Client Version
    2. Repair SCCM Client
    3. Check WMI status
    3. Check Connectivity with server and report issues

    This information can be gathered by 1st line support executive and passed on to 2nd line for faster support.
