    • Support for custom table synchronization into Data Warehouse

      Issue: Support for custom table synchronization into Data Warehouse

      Currently, although a method exists to extend tables that can be imported into the Data Warehouse, we learnt recently that this is not supported. We feel this represents a gap with the following impacts:
      - Not all tables from the SCCM database are currently synced into the DW. Even a common AI table like Install_Software_Data must be synced via this custom process. This is a table used heavily in AI based software title reporting and therefore a common addition to the DW.
      - Custom inventory tables – inventory extension/customization is a…

      • Ability to Export Task Sequence (TS) for Documentation Purposes in Friendly Format

        It would incredibly useful to have a native ability in ConfigMgr to export a task sequence into an easily viewed format that can be utilised as part of design documentation for customers. Either into an Excel spreadsheet with appropriate formatting or possibly html.

        The alternative to this is complex Excel spreadsheets which are very time consuming or using unsupported export methods such as those described in this TechNet blog post: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/deploymentguys/2009/02/20/documenting-your-task-sequences-automagically-update-v2/

        I know quite a few consultants who would absolutely love to see this feature added to save a lot of time and effort which could otherwise be utilised doing…

        • Report for all administrative actions

          It would be nice to have a report to list all administrative actions performed by admins in a CM site. A report similar to "Administration activity log", but not limited to changes in the administrative roles section.

          • Expand Software Inventory to include Office 365 Add-ins

            Right now we have to use Office Telemetry to determine what Office 365 Add-ins are being used in our environment. We have a need to report on what add-ins are being used and to also be able to notify users who are using unapproved add-ins.

            Please add Office-addins as an additional class of software inventory in CM.

            Using Office Telemetry is overkill and the current process is very tedious. We are currently investigating the Git-Hub Get-OfficeAddins but feel that this level of inventory collection should be native to CM. In addition to collecting the add-in inventory data, some reports to…

            • Link the Statistics to a report.

              Link the Statistics to a report. Like required is 100, it should link to a report showing the 100 machines.
              examples:
              It should show for Compliant, required, not required and Unknown.
              For Windows updates and Windows 10 servicing upgrades.
              Windows 10 servicing should link to reports showing the computer numbers.

              • 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?

                • FIX: Distribution Point Usage Summary Report is Empty

                  This report has no data:

                  Home > ConfigMgr_PS1 > Software Distribution - Content > Distribution point usage summary

                  Reason is the SMS_Distribution_Point_Monitoring component selects the last alphabetically stored and '*' separated MP name from registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\DP - ManagementPoints. This happens to be a management point in our untrusted DMZ forest and our production forest distribution points can not access this DMZ forest management point on port 443 due to firewall rules.

                  When we rearrange the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\DP - ManagementPoints value so it will reference a production forest management point as the last '*' separated entry, the distribution point usage summary…

                  • Application deployment reporting - Report to retain data after re-evaluation of collection(s)

                    application model doesn’t retain the data points as the systems falls out by using a limiting collection or “Not in” logic or have to clear the logic for a failed deployment.

                    Once the systems fall out of the collection we lose the ability to pull reports on them.

                    This same method works with the package deployment reports, using a limiting or “not in” logic the data points remains even after the system fall out of the collection.

                    is there a table that can be create leverage to capture historical data to make a custom report for application deployment for collections…

                      • Create "Missing Updates" overview and detail report to help us patch all the things with all the patches

                        I'd love to see two new reports added to help systems managers ensure they patch all the things with all the patches.

                        The overview report should be filterable by Collection and include Client Name, Last Scan Time, Total Missing Updates, and then totals for each Update Classification.

                        The detail report should have the same filters as Compliance 5 except it should NOT have the Update Class field (If you add that, people will still just deploy only some updates, which is not the point of this report). The columns should be the same data as Compliance 5, but only return…

                        • Windows AutoPilot Device Information (TP 1802)

                          It would be great if we could be a little more granular with this report and target it at a specific collection. I appreciate we can't add the device name into the report as it takes away the export to csv functionality but targeting a collection would help us more easily identify which machines we are importing into AutoPilot.

                                There are a lot of dashboard like the ones for Software updates, Client health, Windows 10 & Office 365 servicing, security that could be great to publish to non admin console users.

                                It could be great to have a way to filter those by collections, as well as having a option to export or publish those dashboards to PowerBI or Sharepoint. The same king of integration that SCOM has with sharepoint?

                                • Expand Software Tag inventory to include optional elements

                                  Some software vendors include optional elements that are not gathered by the Asset Intelligence Software Tag Inventory. Adobe for example places the serial number in this section, and without being able to gather that serial number its impossible to tell what version of Acrobat is installed on a PC without writing convoluted scripts/CIs. Please expand the software tag inventory scan to include optional elements. Example of an Adobe software tag below

                                  • Log for Modficiations to Collections, Software Update Groups, Deployments, etc.

                                    Would be nice to have a log file that shows who made changes to collections, software update groups, deployments, etc. Currently we have dozens of individuals that have access to the SCCM console across our environment. Tracking down who made changes has been very challenging.

                                    • Add Build01 to v_r_system_valid to display the OS Build number

                                      Currently you can find the Windows 10 build number in v_r_system, but not v_r_system_valid. As most reports are only looking for valid clients, it would be beneficial to be able to query the Windows 10 build version without joining to another view.

                                      • Modify Custom Reports without Site Modify

                                        The ability to edit reports is based is based on assigned roles. If you create a separate folder for custom reports then you must give the users modify permission on the site so that their accounts are added into the 'ConfigMgr Report Administrators' SSRS role at the root report folder. That's a lotta permission just to edit custom reports. So ideally there'd be an RBA role permission for any report not covered by existing permissions. Really anything that disassociates that ability from modifying sites.

                                        • Better default reports design

                                          Most of internal reports has quite poor design and usually does not tend to dislike it. They look like ConfigMgr legacy: 8 years lag.

                                          Why don't we use a team of designers just to make them look modern and stylish?

                                          Sometimes I find better to use pre-created custom reports for the demos...
