How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Add Reboot Count functionality to the Disable BitLocker TS Step

Newer versions of the BitLocker management tools (specifically manage-bde) now support the ability to suspend the BitLocker protection for defined number of reboots. The current Disable BitLocker TS step only suspends BitLocker for 1 reboot. There are cases that having a defined number of reboots (or indefinitely until re-enabled at the end of a TS) can come in handy (flashing the BIOS, MBR2GPT, In-place Upgrade with PINs, etc.).

Please add this functionality to the Disable BitLocker TS step for the operating systems that support it.

    it might be help full to have the resume as functionality outside of a TS. In case the TS terminates unexpected (however) the machine is unsecure.

    We do not use the built-in step. We use a custom command line to suspend bitlocker. This works like a charm.
