  1. 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.

    • relative time options for scheduled reports

      if you plan a report, e.g. "Antimalware overall status and history", to run every 1st day each month for example, you can only enter fixed dates for the report.
      There should be relative options like "first day of previous month" (see SCOM for good examples)

      • 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.

        • Windows 10 data usage reporting in SCCM database

          Hello,

          It would be really helpful to have Windows 10 data usage reporting added to SCCM database. With Windows 10 data usage details available as a GUI on OS itself, managements across IT would be keen have the same presented as a SCCM dashboard report. I see third party apps in Windows 10 store ;like 'Data Usage' giving very nice reports of the same. Really looking forward to have it in SCCM database.

          • Client Data Sources Data - Timestamps

            Basically, in order to create better reports on things like content download performance etc – we need more accurate time stats so:

            1. Currently the time reported appears in the DB as - 2017-11-08 00:00:00.000 – so if effect we only get the date, although I see on the client that the actual correct start time is there in the CTM WMI class, so would it be possible to report this?
            2. What would be really great (if number 1 is possible) is if you could also report the ‘End Time’ for a download. This would facilitate reports detailing download…

            • 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 (SMS_Units) used in many views from megabytes (MB) to GB. For example, the v_gs_LogicalDisk.FreeSpace value now reports GB units.

                • Access user/computer focussed reports from the device/user collections

                  If I right click on a computer in a collection there are many contextual items on the menu. It would be useful for us to be able to launch the 'compliance 5 - specific computer' report for that computer directly from the menu. there are other device centric reports focussed on the hostname that could be easily accessible.
                  Possibly access the report from the same area as the 'primary user' link in the summary pane.

                  • Copy Query

                    In the Reports area, there is a query area. It would be nice if we could copy a query. We have not found a good way of doing this.

                    • Unable to pull Microsoft SQL Server 2014 & 2016 Edition report i.e. Standard, Enterprise, Express or Datacentre

                      I noticed SCCM is not able to pull Microsoft SQL Server 2014 & 2016 Edition report i.e. Standard, Enterprise, Express or Datacentre.

                      This I have checked with multiple customers environment & in multiple SCCM version. Its very strange that Microsoft SCCM not able to pull Microsoft product inventory properly.

                      • Duplicate or Copy Report Subscriptions

                        It would be a great feature to have the ability to copy or duplicate a report subscription. Often we have to create a new report subscription that matches an existing subscription (for updates compliance) before we are done using the existing subscription.

                        Being able to copy a subscription will save a lot of work if the description, notes, schedule are all the same. All you have to do is change the update group in the parameters.

                        • Make Power BI Reporting Server licensing part of SCCM licensing

                          Power BI is great to create dynamic reports and dashboards with SCCM data, but the licensing to publish those reports and make them available to your whole department or organization are a nightmare.

                          This needs to be much easier, so why not just include it in the SCCM licensing, so we can all move away from SSRS and move to Power BI?

                              Like this for exemple

                              http:\\servername\reports\ (Subscriptions Folder)

                              We must open each reports with the same function (same title) to do some modifications.

                              • 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);

                                • 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:

                                  • 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

                                    • 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 in…

                                      • 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).
