Create and deploy Wi-Fi profiles with a password
Is it possible already to create and deploy Wi-Fi profiles with a password option? Without a password it seems not logical to me? Many customers are requesting this functionality for Windows 10 devices (during and after OS deployment)

You can do this today if you use the Import Wifi profile. You'd need to first manually create the wifi profile on a Windows machine, then export it to xml. You'd then import that XML using the wifi profile wizard in the admin UI and choose the import option. In your XML you can include the password.
Note, there are security implications with doing this, since the password will be stored in cleartext (as part of the policy XML) in the SCCM database, and potentially as well on clients.
To export from Windows you should be able to use the netsh wlan commands in a cmd prompt.

Bumping this up because it is still not an option. It is rather disturbing that this has not been implemented in Configuration Manager yet ... seems like a rather glaring omission. I know there are workarounds available but being able to include the WEP/WPA/WPA2 password should be a minimum requirement!
I would extend this to include iOS and Android devices as well ... competing products are able to do this!

This is one thing that Group Policy can't do. I want to do it.
