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.
Updating status to started, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of the values.
We released our 1905 Technical Preview today.
This release has the first round of changes to address this ask – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/get-started/2019/technical-preview-1905#bkmk_osd

Please add a reboot count to disable bitlocker
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.
