  1. Run Scripts: Ability to Edit Scripts

    In 1706, once you create a script and approve it (or deny it) there is no way to alter the script except but to create a new one. Would be great to have the ability to set the script back to waiting for approval, which would unlock the code to be edited.

    • Create a PowerShell cmdlet too add/edit/remove duplicate hardware identifiers

      New-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier
      Set-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier
      Remove-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier

      Please create cmdlets to add/edit/remove duplicate hardware identifiers. We have a large organization and those pesky Lenovo Yoga's get a USB to Ethernet dongle with each one. We have over 500 dongles currently, and I don't see a way to automate importing those MAC addresses. Thanks!

      • Powershell cmdlet for adding global conditions as requirements

        We are using PowerShell as a frontend for creating applications. As default we create multiple deployment type, each of them intented to run in certain environemts. These environemts are defined in some custom global conditions.

        When creating the deployment type we can very easily identify which global contitions shold be set as requirement. But we miss a Powershell cmdlet to automize this task. Instead we rely on the application creator to remember to add these conditions.

        So far I have found a PS-script that can add one of the build-in conditions, but it fails when trying to add a customā€¦

        • Provide a Powershell PackageManagement Repository and perhaps management thereof

          PowerShell PackageManagement is a unified interface to package management systems and aims to make Software Discovery, Installation and Inventory (SDII) work via a common set of cmdlets (and eventually a set of APIs). Regardless of the installation technology underneath, users can use these common cmdlets to install/uninstall packages, add/remove/query package repositories, and query a system for the software installed.

          Providing a dashboard/portal with the ability to manage the NuGet repository underlying the packagemanagement solution would make SCCM more attractive over phasing it out to go towards Chocolatey Enterprise.

            • New-CMApplication rejects icons larger than 250x250

              New-CMApplication rejects icons larger than 250x250 and returns the warning and error below, even though the SCCM console allows icons up to 500x500.
              WARNING: The maximum size of an icon is 250px X 250px.
              New-CMApplication : Validation of input parameters failed. Cannot continue.

              • Save-CMSoftwareUpdate error RPC server unavailable when connecting under a different account

                My idea is to have the scenario described below supported.

                When running Save-CMSoftwareUpdate command on a CMSite-PSDrive that connects to a ConfigMgr site in a different domain (used Get-Credential to pass credentials in New-PSDrive call) than the user account the PowerShell window is running as, I get error 'The RPC server is unavailable'.

                I can successfully change location to the PS drive, and run other ConfigMgr PS cmdlets.

                Commands:
                New-PSDrive -Name <sitecode> -PSProvider 'CMSite' -Root <siteserverFQDN> -Credential (Get-Credential)
                Set-Location <sitecode>:
                Save-CMSoftwareUpdate -SoftwareUpdateName <name> -DeploymentPackageName <name> -Verbose

                Verbose output from Save-CMSoftwareUpdate call:

                  • SCCM module cmdlet creation for folders

                    The ConfigurationManager module does not have any *-folder cmdlets.

                    I would like to see some created that allow for more folder manipulation within system centre configuration manager, for example Get-CMFolder -Name "Test" would provide me with the Folder ID, Name, Heirarchical Location in ConfigMgr and more!

                    As well as New-CMFolder, Move-CMFolder, Remove-CMFolder, etc!

                    I would also like to see the ability to add -Folder to other cmdlets, such as New-CMDeviceCollection -Name "Test" -Folder "TestFolder" so the collection called Test is made in the folder called TestFolder instead of the Device Collections root.

                      • Save-CMSoftwareUpdate has no option to select the download source

                        The Admin-Console is capable to download Softwareupdates from WSUS or a Networkshare wsuscontent). But there ist no commandlet for that. Save-CMSoftwareUpdate seems to be the commandlet for that. If so, than the parameters for the source are missing.

                        • Run Scripts: Do not preserve parameters when scripts are re-run, and log parameter usage in Monitoring

                          When using parameters, the last value used should be blanked out when run again. The value of parameters is the dynamics of it all. You can overwrite the value but seems it would be best servers to not retain the value after running. Would also be great if the parameter used was logged in the Script Status node for ease of tracking.

                            When using New-CMApplication or Set-CMApplication with the IconLocationFile parameter and an icon at least 128x128 in size, the application is created with a very small icon. I am not certain if smaller icons are effected.

                            • Powershell: get-cmcollection not returning ObjectPath

                              The PowerShell cmdlets Get-CMCollection and Get-CMDeviceCollection/Get-CMUserCollection) returns an empty value for "ObjectPath".

                              This is missing in both 1710 and latest TP (currenty 1801).

                              This works as expected and ObjectPath = "/":
                              Get-WmiObject -namespace "root\sms\site_$siteCode" -query "select * from SMS_Collection where CollectionID = 'SMS00001'"

                              This returns null/empty ObjectPath:
                              Get-CMCollection -Id SMS00001

                                The Import-CMPackage cmdlet does not provide much in the way of verbose output with the -verbose flag. This would be useful to identify what the cmdlet is performing in the background to determine if package already exists with the same name or not.

                                    • Powershell 6.x support everywhere in SCCM

                                      Explicitly being able to select the option of using PowerShell 6.x in scripts/compliance rules/task sequences would be a good future thinking feature to adopt as soon as possible.

                                      Ideally a version option built in to SCCM like that for x32/64 OS, but for PS 5.1/6.x would make this interesting.

                                        • MVP - DCR wanted for server groups

                                          My customer has +_ 600 maintenance windows using the server grouping feature .

                                          Feature Request Nr1 : They use the node drain / node resume feature with PowerShell. They are still modifying and changing the script almost every week . That script is used for those 600 collections :

                                          a) a central repository/place to enter the script details and be able to reuse that for each server group collection like for power management custom templates .
                                          b) If they make a change in the ā€œcentralā€ PowerShell repository , it keeps history ( Like application revisions ) and replaces that automaticallyā€¦
