  1. Correct the "Add Selected Items" ribbon button functionality

    Currently when you select a collection(s) in the console, then utilize the "Add Selected Item" button you are able to functionally add the collection(s) selected to another collection as a member, however it does not actually add the member of the selected collection(s) to the target collection just the root collection itself.

    Example A:
    1. Open Console and navigate to Administration \ Assets and Compliance \ Device Collections \ Select a collection.
    2. Click the "Add Selected Items" button and then "Add selected items to existing device collection"
    3. Select the existing collection that is to be the target

    • Allow Client Notification actions to be triggered from the Devices node.

      Please allow Client Notification actions to be triggered from the Devices node. You currently can only do this from Device Collections.

      • Fix the renaming of collections

        The following behaviour should be fixed

        1. Create 'Collection A'
        2. Create 'Collection B'
        3. Go to the properties of Collection A. Under Membership Rules, go to Add Rule and select 'Include Collections'. Choose 'Collection B'.
        4. Rename 'Collection B' to 'Collection C'.
        5. Note that under the Membership Rules, Collection C is still referenced using it's old name.

        When a collection is renamed, this change should also be reflected under the 'Membership Rules' of other collections.

        • Improve addMembershipRules implementation for large direct membership collection or provide Stored Procedure to do the same

          Today we use an automated process to populate our device collections with machines from a fore-front configuration system.

          After we had exceeded 250000 machines in some collections adding new machines to these large collections has become a real pain. Meanwhile it takes from 40s to 7 minutes to a add a single machine. The SCCM console cannot be used anymore for large collections. It crashes with OOM when the collection is opened or a new computer is added using right click.

          Interestingly execution times don't really differ in terms of the number of machines added in one call of the…

            • Queries vs Collections

              We have also experienced "Collection Creep". A tool would be handy to view/delete collections from a search criteria, e.g: No Memebers, No Deployments, no membership change in 6 months.
