How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Cloud Management Gateway (as CSP)

With 1610, the Cloud Management Gateway feature arrived. Although it's a Pre-Release feature, as Cloud Solution Provider we're UNABLE to use/implement this. And so are our customers...!

When you try to set this up from the ConfigMgr console, a prerequisite is the Azure Management Certificate, which can't be configured as CSP-tenant because this needs the Classic Azure Portal (ASM). This is unacceptable for us, as CSP, as we would have to instruct our customers to get an Azure Subscription separately.

        I've had a chat with the product team at the ConfigMgr booth on Ignite in Orlando. They acknowledged this issue and they said they're working on a solution. No timing was given, but it's gaining priority...

        We'r in the same situation., and are unable to implement CMG until this is resolved. Voted and shared on twitter.

        Tim I've chased up with various guys in the PG and I'm told it's on the todo list but I don't think we'll be seeing an solution until late into the year. The same problem affects Cloud DP too as they are virtually one and the same.

        Giving this puppy +3 votes. We would love to leverage this feature, but cannot go backwards into legacy v1 components.

        I agree, this is such a disconnected decision based on what is happening with Azure and the ultimate removal of ASM.
