  1. Allow to skip maintenance window for superseded appliciations made available to user collections

    Currently when a superseding application is deployed to a user collection I can enable the option "Automatically upgrade any superseded versions of this application". With this option set I'm able to specify a scheduling for the deployment. But the option to allow the installation or maybe the system restart outside the maintenance windows is greyed out.

    Would be nice to have the option to skip the maintenance windows for this type of deployment as well.

  2. Installation Priority

    I would love to be able to assign priority to items that are being or have been deployed. Similar to the idea of distribution priority. This would ideally be an option for anything deployable, such as software updates, task sequences, and/or applications.

    I do a lot of testing. We have various things deployed to collections that computers will always be a part of. It's very frustrating to get stuck behind a string of security updates when I am rebuilding a machine to test it fresh. It would be nice to attach a higher priority to an item so it will…

  3. Application Group reboot behaviour

    Given a scenario of an application group which contains more than one application: if any application in that group requires a reboot the whole application group is terminated with an error (AppGroupHandler - InternalProcessAppRules failed with error 0x87d0032e) even though the application which demanded the reboot was installed correctly.

    The expected behaviour is to perform the reboot and then continue with the next application in line in the application group after the reboot.

    It would be beneficial if any reboot request in the application group process were internally remembered and only one reboot request would be sent to the user…

  4. Add Install Behavior to Uninstallations

    As stated above, the Uninstall command should be forced to check if an executable is running via the Install Behavior tab, same as installations. I could see some cases where you'd want it to uninstall anyway, so maybe a checkbox could be added on how to handle this.

    Right now if a user clicks "uninstall" or if Supersedence is set to run an uninstall, the application will just begin the uninstall. This isn't ideal, as If the old version of software is uninstalled, it will typically crash the application, and then the new version would begin installing to the horror…

  5. App-V 5 Deployment Type publishing option

    App-V 5 Deployment Type should have the option per-deployment type of how the App-V 5 package is installed (per-machine, per-user or determined by target)

    Allow for this would offer;
    1. Consistency of options between deployment types (same as for MSI..)
    2. Ensuring a consistent application deployment which will ease admin management (decrease management overhead when removing the application as a sample)
    3. Allow to control deployment type based on end-point, not target collection.
    4. By allowing admins to set per-machine publishing a fully functional application can be ensured, which would leverage all integration points (not possible when using per-user publishing).

  6. Ability to install packages from NuGet/PackageManagement/PowerShellGet feed

    Ability to install packages from NuGet/PackageManagement/PowerShellGet feed. This will allow managing on-premise/cloud based infra using a NuGet feed like myget.org, TeamCity, OctopusDeploy and a DevOps type workflow.

  7. Available Applications that a user initiates in Software Center should ignore maintenance window for all dependencies and superseded apps

    When a user clicks on an application in Software Center while it is available (or pre-deadline) then all dependent and superseded applications should ignore the user's maintenance window. The current behavior is that if a reboot is needed in the chain then the user has to click install again in Software Center. This could be handled by a deployment option so that the current default behavior isn't impacted.

    Example:
    User Clicks on App1
    App1 has a dependency on App2
    App2 requires reboot
    When user clicks App1, App2 should install, then reboot, then App1 should complete installation and reboot if needed…

  8. Have the ability to pre-deploy an available application on a user’s primary device.

    Today in the application model you can only pre-deploy a required deployment of an application on the users’ primary device but this has 2 drawbacks:
    • Required means that the user doesn’t have the means to uninstall the application and potentially repair the application (uninstall+install).
    • Required means also that when the user logs on to another machine, maybe just to consult a web page, the required applications also get installed unless the global condition primary device equals true was set.
    This is all about provisioning a new machine for a user. Of course there are always common applications, like…

  9. Control the order of software dependencies in app model

    if i have multiple dependencies for an application(all different apps), there is no way to control the order in which they should be installed unless you create dependency group name with priority. In this example,i have no way to control the order of installation since they are all different category apps and cannot use dependency group.

  10. Integrate a References tab on Application objects

    Application objects should have a References tab that is identical in functionality to the References tab on Task Sequence objects.

    The current References tab in an Application object's properties is very limited (Shows App dependencies, App Supersedence, and Virtual Environments).

  11. Active Setup Integration - Wizard / GUI

    Some (MSI) applications (e.g. usually CAD software) will be configured via HKCU Registry hive, files in %appdata% or another files in user paths.
    It would be nice if a new user logs on (e.g. after OSD), these settings takes place automatically.
    This can already be done rudimentary via Active Setup, but not really comfortable (e.g. you have to do logging by yourself, no out of the box feedback in case of success / errors, etc).
    Please integrate Active Setup or a new fully solution for that cases as a GUI / Wizard in Application Management.

  13. Applocker Management

    Fully integrate AppLocker into SCCM similar to how you do for SCEP. Would be great to be able to create AppLocker rules and monitor what get allowed and disallowed.

  14. Application replacement options

    Add, please, additional option to the application supersedence/replacement window "Corresponding to conditions". Very often we need to replace one application to another which has different number of deployment types. Superseded application has only one deployment type (x86 as example) but new application has 2 deployment types (x86 and x64) which has global condition based on operating system architecture. With the new option CCM Client will choose a new application where requirements are met.

  15. Application deletation without Task Sequence link depency

    I would love to be able to delete Application, without first have to remove it from Task Sequence. You can do this with packages and with driver packages, but not with Applications, why?

    The practical challenge here is, that we keep saving our old TS as backup, and this way same App is added to multiple Tasks. It´s hard to go all them through and delete one app.

  16. Trigger Hardware Inventory After Installing Applications

    Many ConfigMgr administrators set aggressive hardware inventory cycles for their client citing the need to keep an up-to-date inventory for the applications installed on their company's assets. Aggressive inventory cycles can obviously have a negative impact on site performance, and very often is unnecessary as there are frequently no changes to the inventory. Administrators can perform a work around by using wrappers or run additional programs to initiate a hardware inventory post install, however this causes an administrative overhead to installing applications.

    I propose adding an option to application/package deployments that would trigger a hardware inventory after a successful installation.…

  17. User Device Affinity - Restrict One machine per User

    Hi,

    I am using Application catalog for making the applications available for the users to install as and when they are in need of. By default, user can set more than one device as his primary device and any approved application can be installed on any/all of those machines.

    While checking the available option to automatically install an app to users primary device (In case of OS reinstallation or Hardware refresh) using appcatalog, it gets installed on all primary devices.

    It becomes difficult to manage this scenario since there are many licensed applications which will get installed on multiple machines.

  18. BITS Priorities for User Initiated Deployments

    Test in 1606: For User launched Application deployments (i.e Software Center) , the BITS job is created as FOREGROUND priority which can hog all of the available bandwidth on the machine.

    Package/Programs downloads are launched with a BITS priority of LOW – please can we standardize on this for all user initiated content downloads.

  20. Enable/Disable Feature for Application Deployments

    Enable/Disable Feature for Application Deployments
    When a Deployment is created, it is Enabled by default and there is no way to Disable it. In the current state, a Deployment could get created incorrectly, resulting in a large number of computers in the company getting rebooted, unwanted software or blue screens (if its something incompatible for that platform). In SCCM 2007 we got around this by creating a "Disabled" program for each Package, then after an Advertisement was QA'd, we would associate the "Enable" Program with the Advertisement. This option is not available in 2012. Seems like a pretty simple feature…
