  1. Allow all Admin Console access to require MFA

    Make everything more secure by requiring Multi-Factor auth for console access. Bonus: make it work over the internet securely.

  3. configuration manager returned a large number of results - UI request

    This is really a pet peeve but bear with me. When I want to search Devices within Assets and Compliance section of the Admin console, a message appears that says "Configuration manager returned a large number of results. You can narrow your results by using search. Or, click here to view a maximum of 100000 results." The functionality of this is great, however the placement of it is EXACTLY where the search box was right before it appeared. More times than not, I'll try to click in the search box and end up clicking on this message instead and theā€¦

  4. SQL Server 2016, Reporting services

    Hi,

    SQL Server 2016 and Reporting Services is shaping up to be a gigantic upgrade! The new Reporting services actually looks like a tool from this century! And Power BI is just amazing.

    Is there any roadmap or info of when will SCCM will support SQL Server 2016 or just Reporting Services 2016?

  5. CMPivot - Additional operators and joins

    I'd like to see a few things added to CMPivot after having a chance to use it recently.
    1. Joins: Would be really useful to be able to join data from different entities, like joining process data with the device data to be able see what makes and models are running a specific process that may have a memory leak issue.

    1. Additional Operators: Would be nice to be able to do a math operation on data that comes back, convert memory values to MB/GB with division, etc.

  6. Support for Power BI Report Server

    Introduce support for Power BI Report Server as a Report Server target to allow SSRS and PBI Reports to be hosted on the same reporting instance, along with in-console report execution.

  7. Integrate Configuration Manager Reporting with Power BI or provide OData reporting

    Configuration Manager is a great source of information for organisations. The problem with this repository of data is that it requires someone to take advantage of it. Reports or queries need to be generated by someone who knows what they are doing. Connecting Configuration Manager to PowerBI or providing an OData interface would allow Configuration Manager inventory data to be more easily accessed and used

    I’m marking the powerBI aspect of this completed. If you want the OData portion, please vote on that idea linked below.

  8. Integrate a GitHub (or GitHub Enterprise) Repository/Branch as the source of "Software Library\Scripts"

    It would be great if you could specify a Git Repository and Branch as the source of the contents of the Scripts Folder. This would allow the approvals to be managed in GitHub with all the abilities around code review and testing.
    It could still require an admin approval in the console which Version of the script should be used. It would also make rollbacks to an earlier version very easy.
    If you allow having "folders" in the Script folder, each of them could be a repository. You still should need to approve which version to run, but MVPs couldā€¦

  9. Warn admins prior to secret key or certificate expiry

    If you forget to renew your CMG "secret key" before the expiry date, things like distributing content to cloud enabled CMG will fail.

    This uservoice is to prompt admins via a banner when the secret key or any self-signed certificates are due to expire.

  10. Add a 'View report in Web Reporting' button to Monitoring\Reporting

    Reports are awesome! But it would be much better if we could right click a report on the console and jump directly into viewing it on the web, or better yet, copy link to clipboard.

  11. Bug & Solution // Error The SELECT permission was denied on the object 'v_WindowsServicingStates'

    Windows Server 2016
    SCCM just upgraded to SCCM CB 1806

    When i run the Report "Lifecycle 01A - Computers with a specific software product" and i select "Windows 10, version 1703" it throws an error:
    Error The SELECT permission was denied on the object 'v_WindowsServicingStates'
    It Works fine if I for example select "Windows 8.1"

    I could reproduce it both environments - Test and Live.

    Solution:
    smsschmusers had no rights on the view 'vWindowsServicingStates' for select
    set it manually, then it works

  13. CMPivot Web Portal

    We have a lot of people who would love to run queries against our systems (Desktop Support admins for example) that we do not give direct console access to. It would be super helpful to have a web-based interface for CMPivot to allow people an easy method to execute queries.

    In addition, a query builder like that of Azure Log Analytics would be helpful as well so we don't have to walk them thru how to write all there queries.

  15. Fix button sizes in admin console Title Bar

    This has been bugging me for a while (since 2012 really)

    Why are the min/max/close buttons so big?
    They don't seem to use the Look & feel of the OS

    Attached a screenshot of the Admin Console running in Windows 10, but the buttons look so outdated and out of place...

    This should be fixed now in ConfigMgr 1706. The button sizes for Admin UI and Outlook 2016 on my win10 machine now are the same size.

  16. AdminConsole is using 30% CPU on Windows 10 1703 - DWM.exe 15% - When minimized CPU usage is 1-5%...

    The adminconsole is causing the machine to chug like crazy. It was fine in Windows 10 1607, but once 1703 was installed DWM.exe and the adminconsole process CONSTANTLY eat 30-50% cpu making the machine near unusable. Someone else has to be experiencing this.

    I am running on a Surface Pro 3 with two external 1440p monitors, doesn't matter if they are connected or not, the SP3 within 5 minutes kicks on the fan, all other tasks just chug (OWA, Edge, etc.)

  18. report broke in v1710

    v1710 issues with report "Hardware - Disk/Computers with low free disk space (less than specified MB free). Report name needs to reflect GB not MB. Which was changed in v1710

    Inventory default unit revision
    As devices now include hard drives with sizes in the gigabyte (GB), terabyte (TB) and larger scales, this release changes the default unit (SMSUnits) used in many views from megabytes (MB) to GB. For example, the vgs_LogicalDisk.FreeSpace value now reports GB units.

  19. To be able to send wake up packet to a client from the admin console

    It would be useful to send a wake up packet to a client machine from the admin console to allow remote access if the machine has been turned off. This could be a check box option on the remote control screen. For example: "Send wake up if client is off"
