  1. wish back the performance on custom RBAC web reports - fix performance problem on TVF(fn_rbac_R_System_Valid)

    I have build many custom RBAC web reports, cince moving to CB massive performance problems appear on this reports.

    As part of a man day analysys i noticed that the most of them has a validation join to the TableValuedFunction "fn_rbac_R_System_Valid".

    And finaly 6 hours of searching i found the bug that produces this performance Problem in the function named above.

    Attached are the orginal and my improved DropAndRecreate.SQL Files.

    The following sql query needs - executed with my own UserSIDs - needs more than 5 minutes without, and only 2 secounds with the improvement:

    SELECT Netbios_Name0 FROM dbo.fn_rbac_R_System_Valid(@UserSIDs);

  2. Help me Provide Statistics to Management for Deployments

    We need to do better at showing the value of ConfigMgr. Most managers (IMO) do not understand the amount of successful (or unsuccessful) change we can do with ConfigMgr. Some high-level dashboard reports would go a long way to help people understand the power of ConfigMgr.

    This could be related to another one I submitted (http://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8922754-help-me-find-objects-that-i-can-remove-from-config), but felt it's different enough to have a separate post.

    I want to easily provide information to management on things like this:
    - Number of installs, per application (in my experience, this is difficult to get, since an app is re-evaluated everyā€¦

  3. Reporting Subscriptions - Add Alerts if subscription fails

    Currently, there is no other way to check that report subscriptions have executed correctly but to go in the console and check the Status column for each subscription.

    It would be nice to add the possibility to create alerts on report subscription.

    Benefits:
    - admins & report users can be notified of reporting errors, without having to verify in the console
    - admins no longer miss these errors because they check the console only seldom
    - admins can take immediate action to investigate and fix the error

  4. Need a filter for MAC Address picker on report Network > MAC - Computers for a specific MAC address

    Since the MAC address isn't added to heartbeat discovery data, it's really hard to go from a MAC address to a device name in the console. This comes up all the time when troubleshooting things like PXE logs. We end up having to use the "Network > MAC - Computers for a specific MAC address" report.

    Unfortunately, that report contains a list of every MAC address in your environment. Since MAC's are often only different by a few characters at the end, it is really hard to 1) skim the list and pick what you want, or 2) type inā€¦

  5. Create email subscription for all active alerts

    It would be nice to have a generic subscription for all new active alerts, rather than having to create a subscription to each alert.

    I want to be notified of any alert that comes up by email. (Option warning/critical level).

  6. vSMS_Boundary

    Created(or make this view) a supported version of vSMS_Boundary that can be used with reporting. This will allow admin to local computers not within boundaries and allow for boundary related reporting

  7. Save Recent CMPivot queries in a dropdown list

    CMPivot should save the last 10-20 (or make it configurable) queries ran. Many times I will run a CMPivot query early in the day, then need to run it again later, or on a different connection. If there was a dropdown with recent queries, it would save a lot of time.

  8. Filter built-in reports by collection

    Many built-in reports can be filtered by site, but I would like to see them modified so they can be filtered by collection.

  9. Mail Notification for Collection changes

    We use install and uninstall Collections for Application Deployment over AD-Group (installation) and Softwareinventory (uninstall). When the number of clients in a collection is changing an email notification would be great.

  10. Color theme

    To save companies time when building reports from other environments or being imported, it would be nice to have a CSS theme like template which can be applied to the look and feel of the report.

    So this would mean all objects, like pie or bar charts, fonts and frames, tables, text boxes can be changed as soon as you plant a CSS theme configuration setting on it.

  11. Track and make available through console (preferably) or SSRS reporting client connection to CMG and CDP history

    We want SCCM to track, on a per individual device basis, which devices connected to CMG and/or CDP and when. We need this data for both reporting on effectiveness/utilization of CMG/CDP and also to help identify which systems are connecting versus which ones we expect to be connecting.

    Currently, data is tracked only in quantities, for example, I can see how many systems connected over CMG in the past 30 days and how much data was used, but I cannot see which devices were the ones that connected.

    Thank you.

  12. Report Subscription Schedule Offset in days/weeks

    It would be really great if when configuring a Report Subscription Schedule you could configure it to run based on the number of days / weeks since "patch Tuesday" (especially in countries other than the USA where "patch Tuesday" is actually a Wednesday and not necessarily the second Wednesday of each month).
    It takes some time (hours/days) to receive the updates compliance data from all clients after the MS patches release and WSUS sync, so this feature is really important for Path Management Compliance reporting.
    I believe there are a lot of ways to customize the reporting process including anotherā€¦

  13. Update (CUs) behavoiur on Reports

    To meet the business needs from our customers and to ease the access we have modified the default folder structure Microsoft uses. When an update is applied the default folder structure is re-created, We have to manually remove the default folder structure after each update. -> the existing folder structure should not be affected by an update

  14. Create a Support View for InventoryLog table.

    Troubleshooting Hardware inventory has always been a problem. Recently I was make aware of a great table within the SCCM database that can help with troubleshooting. HW inventory issues. However there is no support view to query this great information! Please create a supported view for this table or Enable support for vInventoryLog view so that it can be officially used in reports.

  15. screen resolution

    It would be nice to have a reliable way to detect primary screen resolution or primary monitor aspect ratio. This will help management of branded backgrounds and lock screens. Our infrastructure has mixed 4:3 and 16:9 monitors. We don't have a good way to make sure the optimal image is placed in the right spot.

  16. Historical Client Connections - Management Point

    It would be great to be able to report on within SQL how many clients in total have connected to a Management Point/s.

    The scenario being for example, in a newly configured IBCM environment it would be nice to be able to report on how many clients in total have connected to one of the IBCM enabled MP's, business use being able to report on current uptake.

    Currently you can report on LastScan but that is unfortunately only taken as a current snapshot and data would change as clients move back and forth between Internet and Intranet networks.

  17. Compliance tracking per system on a time series. Ideally you could set your aggregation interval, vendor, and update classification.

    Would like to have a Table with a Resource ID , timestamp , and compliance %, vendor and Update Classification. The table aggregation interval could be daily or weekly, or follow data warehouse sync. With a capture of system specific data we can build BI reports per system, and aggregate per customer groupings. This would be a win for executive level reporting to show how every month SCCM moves the enterprise to compliant, as compliance percent drops on 2nd Tuesday and move up throughout the month. Detail level data is needed to drive exceptions (read snowflakes) into standard best practices.

  18. Allow Resource Explorer to be opened from a Web Report

    Web reports are great but are not very usable to display everything about a computer. You must have access to the Console and open Resource Explorer to see everything. Need a method to open Resource Explorer from a web report that shows a list of computers. This would make it easier to drill down to detailed information about a computer. We had this with previous competing products and it is the feature I miss the most.

  19. Maintenance Window Calendar Overview

    Just curious if this could be possible to be implemented using either reporting service or in console but if you could deploy a calendar overview of Maintenance Windows similar to a Gantt chart in which we could see overlapping bars of Maintenance Windows on a timescale in a calendar view along with applicable collections as it's header would be great in terms of planning or discussing changes in a change approval board and/or planning patch management downtime.
    The best way would be using reports as that link can be shared with PMO/Decision makers for their review.
    Thanks

  20. SCCM Driver Usage Report

    Include a built-in report in the SCCM Console that could provide details about driver use/frequency of use of a particular driver, or for all drivers. This would greatly assist in providing us with visibility into which drivers are still in active use during builds.
