How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Option to use SYSTEM context for detection method for a user-based application deployment

The application detection method only runs in the user context if it is deployed to a user collection. This would be reasonable if the Deployment Type user experience were set to "Install for User" (User context), however the detection method runs in the user context when this is set to "Install for system" installation behavior (SYSTEM context).

    This was "NOTED" two years ago. Any updates? Is User Voice as popularity contest or is it about improving the product to address fundamental design and usage issues for customers? Is MSFT adopting a new "pet view" development strategy?

    I had this problem too. Was unable to run the power shell cmdlet Get-AppxProvisionedPackage in the detection method because it did not have elevated permission. Really, the detection method should run as system regardless of if the application installs as user or system.
