    this is now possible with a combination of scripts, and UI extensions all available through the community hub

  2. 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.

  3. Improved automation and extensibility by exposing Configuration Manager functionality through a REST web API

    Exposing Configuration Manager functionality through RESTful web API's would open up a whole new world for interacting with ConfigMgr.
    E.g. a web Admin console and easier integration with Service Management Automation (SMA).
    It should also be easier for 3rd party vendors to create new web based solutions for say an self-service portal or a Windows App for tracking an OS or application deployment on a mobile device or phone.
    Personally I would really like any easier way to interact with ConfigMgr. when running in Windows PE (OS Deployment) or a web portal for non-admins to provision new or existing machineā€¦

  4. Run Scripts: Ability to Edit Scripts

    In 1706, once you create a script and approve it (or deny it) there is no way to alter the script except but to create a new one. Would be great to have the ability to set the script back to waiting for approval, which would unlock the code to be edited.

  5. Content Library Cleanup Tool

    At the moment the Content Library Cleanup Tool shipped in SCCM 1610 TP, when it find some errors or is not able to cleanup some of the orphaned files/information in Content Lib crashes or stop the process.
    In big environments with a large number of PullDP's it's important that we can automate the tool to perform an automated clenaup of the distribution Points and Pull Distrbution Points.
    We are working with a customer that as a large number of PullDP's so we would like to suggest for future versions of the tool the following changes:

    Production version of this tool released today in 1702.

  6. Allow copy to clipboard for any fields in Resource Explorer (Ctrl-C)

    Please add functionality to use the clipboard in the Device -> Resource Explorer tool.
    This would enable us to quickly grab some information for one of the systems, like copy a MAC-address or MSI install code.
    At the moment, we either have to export the whole table to .txt and filter using a text-editor or manually write out the information which is error-prone.

    Functionality should look like:
    - Double click in a field in the table.
    - Press Ctrl-C to copy to clipboard.

  7. rba viewer

    RBA Viewer from the toolkit no longer opens after the application of CU1 for SCCM 2012 R2 SP1. I show this VERY useful tool to almost every customer of mine as most of them struggle with creation of roles correctly. The viewer crashes with the following message in the debug.

  8. 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 ā€œAdd-CollectionMemberRulesā€ / ā€œRemove-CollectionMemberRulesā€ 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".

    Note:
    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 informationā€¦

  9. 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!

  10. PowerShell cmdlets for editing task sequences

    Being able to edit task sequences with PowerShell would make managing task sequences much easier. Some possible new cmdlets could include:

    Add-CMTaskSequenceStep
    Get-CMTaskSequenceStep
    Remove-CMTaskSequenceStep
    Set-CMTaskSequenceStep

    Add-CMTaskSequenceGroup
    Get-CMTaskSequenceGroup
    Remove-CMTaskSequenceGroup
    Set-CMTaskSequenceGroup

  14. 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€¦

  16. RBA Viewer that works with CM CB

    The RBA Viewer that is released in 2015 constantly crashes in my production system. I was able to get it to work in a lab running an older verison of SCCM.

    So far it crashes with CM1606 and 1702

    Can RBA Viewer be updated to support the new permissions that have been introduced over the past 2 years and updated it with every release of CM CB?

    If there are no plans to update rbaviewer can a statement be released that the current version is not supported with CM1606 and beyond?
    Or whatever version you feel is appropriate?

  18. Provide a version of cmtrace that is compatible with AppLocker / Device Guard

    At the moment when cmtrace is opened, it extracts the appropriate architecture version to AppData\Local\Temp<temporary file name>.tmp and executes it. Customers often put cmtrace in the system32 directory of computers to aid with troubleshooting.

    With recent randsomware attacks, companies are starting to look at blocking programs from executing from AppData with AppLocker and Device Guard.

    A workaround so far has been to copy the tmp file and rename it to cmtrace.exe and placing it in approved directory for executing applications, but this sort of extra effort could easily be solved by providing an update to the tool that simply includesā€¦

  19. Add missing InstallationBehaviourType parameter to new DeploymentType cmdlets in SCCM Powershell Cmdlets.

    This goes for all new Add/Set-CM*DeploymentType but for my example, I'll refer to Add-CMScriptDeployment.

    An example below is my generic Script Deployment Type.

    Add-CMScriptDeploymentType `
        -ApplicationName "$PublicName" `
        -DeploymentTypeName "$AppName Client" `
        -ContentLocation "$AppLocation" `
        -InstallCommand "$InstallStr" `
        -UninstallCommand "msiexec /x $MSICode /qn" `
        -MaximumRuntimeMins 720 `
        -LogonRequirementType WhereOrNotUserLoggedOn `
        -UserInteractionMode Hidden `
        -ProductCode
        -ScriptLanguage PowerShell `
        -ScriptText $scriptDetect
    

    When this is run, the DT is created with the Installation Behaviour set to the default value of "Install for system if resource is device; otherwise install for user"

    The previous version of this cmdlet - Add-CMDeploymentType had the parameter availableā€¦

  20. PowerShell cmdlets need to be cleaned up

    I use a LOT of PowerShell ... and the PowerShell modules in SCCM are ... well... bad.

    Issue 1: I should not have to set my running location to a site to run a cmdlet. No one uses a set-location to make sure they are in the AD domain root before running a get-ADUser (unless they have a multi-domain environment and need to call something specifically), yet SCCM requires this to be true. It makes scripting needlessly complex.

    Issue 2: there are a pointlessly large number of cmdlets. Do I really need a Get-CMDeviceCollection and a separate Get-CMUserCollection? Why can'tā€¦
