    • ability to apply security scopes to deployments

      would be great if we could set security scopes on deployments. we offer sccm as a service to multiple groups using RBA. one group provides applications that can be viewed by all other groups. unfortunately they cannot see all of the deployments made from these applications as they only have visibility to their own devices/collections.

        • Shedule and Rate Limits Per Group

          It would be nice if we have shedule and rate limits per distribution group instead of having it configured by dp only. So a mix of both will be great having the group config superseding the dp one...

          • Move RBAViewer into the console

            RBA Viewer has been overlooked for too long and offers a lot of great features over the admin console. Why not combine the features into the console?

            • Compare custom security roles against built-in roles

              When looking at an SCCM site I am often presented with a bunch of custom security roles, I can check the permissions but actually it's really difficult to compare that role against the built-in roles to see what the difference is. A compare feature would be nice.
              Taking that one step further, it would be great to get a resultant set of policy type feature where I can input a user and it will show me what permissions they will have in the SCCM console.

              • RBA Detailed report per Administrative User

                Ability to right click an "Administrative User" and have the ability to export their permissions to a detailed report.

                For example:

                The ability to see what permissions they have for a particular role when its matched to a scope and/or a collection.

                Right now I a maintain this in a spreadsheet. It is not enough to say this "Administrative User" is a package admin. Since we can create custom security roles, having the ability to see the specifics via a report per user will be very helpful.

                Also when a CM update is released, please include any additions, modifications or…

                • Use DNS for IP addresses

                  Use DNS records for IP addresses instead of internally discovered IP. This allows machines to change their IP, between subnets or wired/wireless

                  • AD User Discovery should support incremental discovery

                    AD User Discovery should support incremental discovery when using groups as search base. Currently this is not supported. We have the challenge to discover user being located somewhere in the Active Directory, not being allowed to discover all users. Therefore, we have only the chance to put all users in a group and discover all users from this group. Unfortunately, delta discovery is not supported for AD User Discovery. For some reasons it's supported for AD Group Discovery, but not for AD User Discovery. It would be great if this could be enabled in particular because there is no real…

                    • Maintenance Windows for Content Downloading

                      Have an option within the Maintenance Window settings to not only apply the window to software updates and deployments but to the machines ability to download content as well. Sometimes there is a need to have a complete blackout of activity on machines during a certain window of time.
                      This is not related to limiting the bandwidth for BITS but actually wanting nothing using resources disk, CPU etc. on the local machines.

                        • Revamp of RBAC

                          Currently RBAC is confusing and very messy and with all of the new features its getting even more so. Some clean up to RBAC and especially how Security Scopes function (I've yet to see a single company really implement them effectively) would be very nice. Wondering if maybe even using some of the analytics gained from companies some better 'default' rbac groups could be created.

                          • Add option in Task Sequence Reboot Computer Step

                            Add an option to the Reboot Computer Step that uses a TS variable to decide whether or not to reboot to the Boot Wim or the OS on the hard drive. With the ability to call other TS's within a TS (Which is freekin awesome btw!) I'm finding that some of the TS's I'm building can be called from PE or the OS. I know I could build two separate TS's or set a variable and have two separate reboot steps, but as another requestor put it in their request..."It would be much more elegant" if this option were built…

                                      Application Management Policies can't be scoped by Security Scopes in RBA. There's multiple team that manage MAM policies and we don't want to show all MAM policies to both teams. Having the ability to set security scopes will restrict the chance of major consequences and security issue.
                                      Thanks

                                      • MMC snap-in

                                        Seems like the MMC snap-in has been removed from current versions. I wish it was still available.
