How can we improve Configuration Manager?

3rd Party Patching - SCUP Integration with SCCM Console

Integrate the SCUP tool on to SCCM Admin Console. This will give a single pane of glass view for all patching activities (including importing 3rd party patches).

    Please do not forget to support timestamping when signing updates. Currently this feature will not work in SCUP since the predefined time stamp server does not support sha256 time stamping. As a result, the updates that were published are not signed with a timestamp and must be resigned after the validation period of the signing certificate.
    Maybe it is a good idea to define a setting were the user can configure a time stamp server. I couldn’t find such a setting in the SCUP currently.

    This would be a great achievement if it would be done, given the level of data that SCCM environments would have from Asset Intelligence.
    ( I'm currently using a separate system from Heat Software (formerly Lumension) which is an additional level of management overhead - their product whilst good - but it is one extra thing to have to manage in addition to it being an additional agent running on the PC. )

    The old SCUP that we have is horrible, there are 3rd party products out there that Microsoft should be able to outperform, and SCUP is a long way off from being a competitor to 3rd party patching. IT would be great if Microsoft started competing in this space.

    I am surprised that, after all these years, MS has not acquired a 3rd party application patching capability and integrated it into the core...if for no other reason than to ward of competitors making inroads into their turf.

    Having EXEs available for download on the MS catalog and no way to inject them in an image in 2017 doesn't make a lot of sense. Please integrate this. Thanks.

    We have several System Center environments. The groups (catalogs) should be able to be exported, like the SUGs. Thank you.

    Excellent news. Long time overdue but well done Microsoft for listening.

    To install SCUP on Server 2016 just run the SCUP msi installer from an elevated command prompt and use /qb. This will skip the prerequisite check issue caused by the version being 10.x on Server 2016.

    Any update SCUP will be officially supported with Server 2016 or if it will be integrated to SCCM Console? This is a huge roadblock even with the registry hack.

    Today a customer inquired about using SCUP 2011 for 3rd party updates with Current Branch 1610 but was concerned about its support since there is a 5-6 yr gap between the latest CB version and SCUP 2011. The customer asked whether future CB versions would have SCUP integrated into the ConfigMgr console. It kind of court me off guard because I had no answer for the question. This SCUP topic is starting to come up more often - not sure how we should handle these customer inquiries?
