How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Provide the ability to set an "expiration date" on a DEPLOYMENT

Even thought Applications are state based there are still use cases when a deployment could be expired so that no future deployments of that application will occur. Either an expiration or the use of automatically disabling the deployment, since Software Updates could be disabled so should Software Application Deployments. The reason to keep the deployment would be for reporting so a way to disable or expire would be ideal if state based is not needed.

The sms_applicationassignment WMI class exposes an ExpirationTime property which actually removes deployments from App Catalog but it does not work with software center.

    Agree. It would be very useful to have the possibility to configure the deployment of an application with expiration date.

    Absolutely agree this is very annoying and should be a no brainer change

    there are tons of case when there a approved MW for a app install for only a given period. in such case, its important to have this ability to disable the deployment past that MW
