The PS Cmdlet currently offers options to manage Operating System Images but not Operating System Upgrade Packages.
It would be great if corresponding Functions could be added:
Remove-CMOperatingSystemUpgradePackageUpdateSchedule3 votescompleted · AdminAdam Meltzer (ConfigMgr Product Team) (Software Engineer, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager) responded
We have added new cmdlets for working with upgrade packages:
These should be available in the 1701 technical preview.
The "Download Package Content" step in task sequence automatically brings the deployment packages in alphabetic order of the name. Since the order is critical for accessing the contents via %DownloadPkg%, it would be great to replace the automatic order with manual up and down buttons to sort, like in the “Install Application” step. It is too easy to break a task sequence by changing just the name of a package.3 votescompleted · AdminBob Mac Neill (Software Engineer, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager) responded
Updating status to completed.
As Vlad commented this was completed in 1810, he’d know since he implemented.
We just hadn’t marked as completed.

Parameters for Run Script have been added to 1710. Thanks for the feedback on this feature and keep it coming!
Package & Application Path in Hierarchy after searching for the packages to know the location of the package/application instead of searching through all the folders/subfolders2 votescompleted · AdminAdam Meltzer (ConfigMgr Product Team) (Software Engineer, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager) responded
Can now search by object path
The new Script functionality in the console allows deployment to a machine, but runs at USER level, not SYSTEM. We adhere to best practise and users are not admins, thereby limiting its utility for admin functions.
It also prevents us from running cleanup scripts which require the system context (specific case is stuck BITS transfers initiated by CCM)2 votes
The Alternate Content Provider is poorly documented. It would be nice if an example could be developed and posted. At minimum, it would be great if you could complete the documentation for the interface ICcmAlternatedownloadProvider and the call back. The call back is not documented at all. It simply says to call method SendNotifyErrorToCTM. Where is that?!2 votes

Application doesn’t include installation status in Application tab,
In the New Software Center, there's no way to tell easily if the suggested software is installed or not. It simply shows everything. You have to click each tile individually to find if it's installed.
Yes, you can find installed apps in the "Installed software" tab, but from the user-experience perspective, to compare those two tabs every time (to find what is and what isn't installed), it's not very seamless.
Do you know how to fix these issue or Ms has plan improve the New software center?
Thank you2 votescompleted · AdminMark Silvey - ConfigMgr Product Team (Engineering Manager, ConfigMgr, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager) responded
In the latest current branch version of software center you can toggle to the list view and see the installation status of the applications. So, updating this item to completed.
There is no option to sort machines under collection by their status online/offline.2 votescompleted · Admindjam (Product Director, or Executive, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager) responded
you can’t sort by icon… but you can add the column that shows text for offline/online – and sort by that.
F8 debug window no longer prevents reboot / restart in Windows 10 full OS, after upgrading to 1606 from R2 SP1
The problem is that after upgrading from R2 SP1 to 1606, customer found that the debug shell window no longer suppresses the TS from restarting the computer in full OS.2 votescompleted · AdminBob Mac Neill (Software Engineer, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager) responded
Updating status to completed as this is expected.
We actually never guaranteed that the F8 command-prompt will prevent the rebooting of a machine. It was just a side-effect of the implementation.
In older builds, we launch the command-prompt as part of setup-complete. This prevents the reboot while our setup-complete is still running. The problem is that with Windows 10, that will not work because the access to the desktop has changed.
Now, we launch the command-prompt from the TS Progress UI. Reboots now proceed without waiting for the command-prompt because our setup-complete is not waiting for the command-prompt.
With the console you can create a copy of a task sequence, but there does not appear to be a direct way of doing this via powershell. This would make staging image changes much easier.2 votes
Copy-CMTaskSequence has been added to 1802.
When an MSI detection rule is created with New-CMDetectionClauseWindowsInstaller, and applied to a Deployment Type with Set-CMScriptDeploymentType, the product code in the detection rule is missing the braces. This causes the detection rule to fail to detect an application that is actually installed. The application is successfully detected after adding the surrounding braces to the product code in the SCCM console.2 votes
This is fixed for 1802.
We recently added a task sequence step which involves querying a Dell web API for warranty information to write to WMI during OSD. We use a Run PowerShell script step for that. Unfortunately the Dell API is not always responsive which can lead to the TS hanging up on that step. I'm going to create a program for it for now so that it has a timeout, but it would be great if the Run PowerShell Script TS step had the option to check a box and specify a timeout period like some other steps have.2 votescompleted · AdminBob Mac Neill (Software Engineer, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager) responded
Thanks for all your suggestions and feedback, updating status to completed.
SCCM 1902 fast Ring released today
In SCCM are normal and hidden variables. These hidden variables are not really hidden. For example, when you use them during Installation, those variables are visible in the clients logfiles.2 votes
Thanks for the feedback, we’d missed updating this previously.
There’s now options in the task sequence editor to specify if the variable is hidden, this will hide the variable in the log too. Same for the Run Command line action. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/changes/whats-new-in-version-1902#other-improvements-to-os-deployment & https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/15282795-secret-task-sequence-variable-value-exposed for more detail
TMG is end of life and MS has not provided an alternative yet for SCCM IBCM to manage clients over the Internet. It would be great if alternatives like F5 would be supported for IBCM setup.2 votes
We don’t require TMG for use with Internet-based client management. We support any 3rd party firewall that meets our requirements for SSL bridging or tunneling including solutions from F5, Cisco, Juniper, and others.
When a device has a single primary user they appear with a trailing comma. Can this be cleaned up?2 votes
This should be fixed in 1806.
When decomissioning a site sytem, having the sms provider installed on that site system can cause the decomissioning to fail. By just displaying the sms provider as a site system role in the console, it's much easier to figure out that the fact that the sms provider is still installed is causing this.2 votescompleted · AdminMark Silvey - ConfigMgr Product Team (Engineering Manager, ConfigMgr, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager) responded
The SMS Provider is now listed as a site role in the 1810 release, so updating status to completed.
Run powerShell Script task sequence step to set variable appends to existing value instead of replace
When using the new Run Powershell script step in a task sequence in CM 1902 and you use the "Output to a task sequence variable" option and choose and existing task sequence variable the value returned from the powershell script is appended to the variable instead of replacing the value of the variable.
Seems this should set the value not append the value.2 votescompleted · Admindjam (Product Director, or Executive, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager) responded
Fixed in #SCCM 1904 TP, and 1906 prod
We have experienced the issue for Unknown computers,
"There are no task sequences available to this computer. Please ensure you have at least one task sequence advertised to this computer"
As per below blog, this issue is fixed in 1702 update rollup
However, the issue still occurring after 1702 rollup fix.1 vote
Updating status to completed. This was addressed with our 1702 hotfix roll up.
We suggested to verify boot images were updated after applying the hotfix – the updated binaries need to be injected to the Boot Images, select the Boot Image, select Update Distribution Points will ensure the latest are added.
