      This can be done today w/ #SCCM 1802 (and previous versions too). I will mark started… and watch comments for why this doesn’t just work… before I mark this straight up completed…

      Steps:
      1) On the CAS (or standalone primary), go to Administration → Hierarchy Configuration → Discovery methods
      2) right click on Active Directory System Discovery and bring up the Properties form. Active Directory Attributes tab, and then click on Custom. In the form that appears, type the name of the attribute. Click OK, and make sure you have added it as an attribute to discover. Run discovery after exiting properties form.
      3) Now when you go to the Devices view and right click on a device and go to its Properties form, you will see the new attribute showing up there.

    • Console device view should allow search/filter by MAC address

      We find ourselves trying to go from MAC address to device in the console fairly regularly, especially when troubleshooting things like PXE from the logs (which only shows MAC address) and needing to kill off failed OSD records (which may be named "Unknown" or have a random computer name in ConfigMgr, but you're now in WinPE ready to kick off the TS again, but only have the MAC from ipconfig /all to ID the old record).

      The MAC addresses are already being pulled by Heartbeat inventory, but you can't search/filter of part/all of the MAC address.

      Thank you for making…
