  1. add a powershell possibility to add requirements to a deploymenttype of an application

    At the moment it is not easy to add requirements to an application deploymenttype with PowerShell. I think many of us would benefit if this would be simplified.

  2. ConfigurationManager PowerShell module should register itself as an Env Variable

    Today, when you install the CM Console, the PowerShell module will be placed under the %CMInstallDirectory%\AdminConsole\Bin\ConfigurationManager.psd1

    This makes sense given where the user is choosing to install the console, and that's fine. But placing it here off the beaten path means that it is not importable using PowerShell's module autodiscovery features. For instance, if a module is found in any of the standard user or system paths (or registered under the $ENV:PsModulePath) the user can easily import the module without having to specify the full path, a big user quality of life win. This is the way that SQL Serverā€¦

  3. Run Scripts: Need ability to schedule execution

    Since version 1707 it's now possible to run Powershell scripts for a collection, but these scripts cannot be scheduled. It would be of real value if these Powershell scripts could be scheduled.

  4. 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!

  5. Pass script parameters with Invoke-CMScript

    Allow the Invoke-CMScript to pass script parameters. This could be done with a ScriptParameter hashtable similar to how Invoke-CMReport functions.

  6. Powershell cmdlet for adding global conditions as requirements

    We are using PowerShell as a frontend for creating applications. As default we create multiple deployment type, each of them intented to run in certain environemts. These environemts are defined in some custom global conditions.

    When creating the deployment type we can very easily identify which global contitions shold be set as requirement. But we miss a Powershell cmdlet to automize this task. Instead we rely on the application creator to remember to add these conditions.

    So far I have found a PS-script that can add one of the build-in conditions, but it fails when trying to add a customā€¦

  7. New-CMApplication rejects icons larger than 250x250

    New-CMApplication rejects icons larger than 250x250 and returns the warning and error below, even though the SCCM console allows icons up to 500x500.
    WARNING: The maximum size of an icon is 250px X 250px.
    New-CMApplication : Validation of input parameters failed. Cannot continue.

  9. "Provision this application for all users on the device" cmdlet

    In release (1810) an option was added to the "User Experience" tab for APPX deployments.

    With the available cmdlets you can automate your deployments, but there is no option to set this outside of the UI.

    Please add a "Provision this application for all users on the device" parameter to the "Add-CMWindowsAppxDeploymentType" cmdlet.

  10. Provide a Powershell PackageManagement Repository and perhaps management thereof

    PowerShell PackageManagement is a unified interface to package management systems and aims to make Software Discovery, Installation and Inventory (SDII) work via a common set of cmdlets (and eventually a set of APIs). Regardless of the installation technology underneath, users can use these common cmdlets to install/uninstall packages, add/remove/query package repositories, and query a system for the software installed.

    Providing a dashboard/portal with the ability to manage the NuGet repository underlying the packagemanagement solution would make SCCM more attractive over phasing it out to go towards Chocolatey Enterprise.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Update CM cmdlet documentation and downloadable help file

    Running update-help pulls down a help file to an older version of the cmdlets. For instance, do a clean install of the console and cmdlets.
    Type:

    Get-Help Add-CMApplicationCatalogWebsitePoint

    On a machine that has not had the help file updated, you will see 6 parameter sets under Syntax. Run update-help and then try again. You will now see 2 parameter sets under Syntax. In addition, there is no detailed information for the new cmdlets added.

  17. 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:

  19. Unify Powershell Functionality

    The recent Powershell features like 'Run Script' and allowing them to be added directly to a Task Sequence step are fantastic, but things are beginning to feel somewhat fragmented.

    It would be great if SCCM had a central script repository, maybe backed by git, that we could pull scripts from as opposed to adding them.

    This would allow us to easily use the same code in a Task Sequence and a 'Run Script' without having to maintain it in multiple places. Perhaps we could even add a special Powershell Script Package Program type that would pull a script from theā€¦

  20. SCCM module cmdlet creation for folders

    The ConfigurationManager module does not have any *-folder cmdlets.

    I would like to see some created that allow for more folder manipulation within system centre configuration manager, for example Get-CMFolder -Name "Test" would provide me with the Folder ID, Name, Heirarchical Location in ConfigMgr and more!

    As well as New-CMFolder, Move-CMFolder, Remove-CMFolder, etc!

    I would also like to see the ability to add -Folder to other cmdlets, such as New-CMDeviceCollection -Name "Test" -Folder "TestFolder" so the collection called Test is made in the folder called TestFolder instead of the Device Collections root.
