  1. Cancel or delete client operation permissions

    Cancelling or deleting a client operation under Monitoring > Client Operations can only be enabled if the Security Role has security scope set to the All Systems collection. There should be a security permission to enable the ability to cancel or delete client operations instead of adding all systems collection security scope to a role.

    • Bring Desktop Analytics to Configuration Manager

      Bring the full new Desktop Analytics to SCCM, at ignite it was presented and you can have it only trough the fast track channel, when we can have the full experience in SCCM that your be great also for the co-managed devices and maybe with a connector to Intune to have the Intune SA clients also in SCCM for an overview.

      • Add a priory order option to Compliance Items 'settings'.

        Add a priory order option to Compliance Items 'settings'. Currently you can have multiple settings but you don;t know in which order they process. if you have 'setting 1' dependent on 'setting 2' you can't specify the order in which they process. Same might go for Baselines but that not my current need.

        • Mark and remove multiple Content Locations from the package properties

          Since a long time it is only possible to delete one Content Location at a time. This becomes very tedious when dealing with several dozens of distribution points.
          This request is to offer multiple select and deletion for content locations.

          • CM Messaging SDK Documentation shouldn't be a .chm help file AND...

            The docs that exist for the CM Messaging (note, the messaging SDK is not a part of the larger CM SDK docs here https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh442686(v=cmsdk.16).aspx) is currently a .chm Help file, which is lovably nostalgic.

            However it doesn't do justice to the power of the SDK. For instance, Discovery and hardware inventory are barely covered in the SDK docs. I'm troubleshooting an issue now with the Messaging SDK in which a fake CM Client appears with Windows 6.2 NT Workstation, even though it is a fully patched Win10 machine. Weird stuff.

            Anyway, it would be great if the docs wereā€¦

            • Database design

              There are lots of duplicate views (v_collection, V_collections) that stores almost the same information. To review and remove those duplicates would ease the use of the database.

              Use unique identifiers - in rare cases the resourceid is called itemkey. Or the product code shows up sometimes as Software Code. A unified naming convention would be very appreciated.

              Devide information for CI deployments/compliancy, those for applications, Security Upates, Deployment Types and whatnots. Having all stored to one table/view CI_ConfigurationItems is very confusing and very difficult to retrieve.

              Outdated versions/revisions (apps, CIs) not in use should be removed also on the CASā€¦

              • Customizable Deployment Alerts

                Instead of the threshold for successful deployment(Less than % Success) and Threshold for failed deployment(More Than % Failure).

                Add the ability to select from a list of scenarios:
                Success > 99%
                Success < 50%
                Failure > 10%
                InProgress < 0%

                I would sometimes like to receive an email when the deployment finished with one of those thresholds that provides the report of Success, InProgress, Failures at a specified time after the deployment or end of maintenance window.

                • Add processor architecture (x64/x86) to Check Readiness step

                  Some task sequences can run only on the correct processor architecture e.g. cannot upgrade Win7 x86 to Win10 x64 or cannot install x64 OS to 32 bit device.

                  Add processor architecture (x64/x86) to Check Readiness step. Thus, the incorrect task sequence is immediately canceled if you try to install wrong architecture TS.

                  • Add 'Member Count' to Deployment Wizard

                    When deploying Software, Updates etc. the Deployment Wizard should show the actual 'Member Count' of a collection like in the example screenshot.

                    In addition in the Deployment Overview the 'Assets Targeted' column should be displayed as default and immediately display something after a deployment has been created. Currently it can take quite a long time before you can see the actual amount of clients targeted.

                    This will make it easier for Sys Admins to prevent accidental deployments

                    • subnets

                      When syncing the IP address range during Discovery, could you also check that the Description in Sites and Services has or has not changed? At least the description isn't in sync for me.

                      • Add Tenant ID and Service Instance to the Microsoft Intune Subscription View in Admin Console

                        It is always hard to find tenantID, Onmicrosoft.com address and Service Instance when managing Intune in Hybrid.
                        It would be of great help if we could get this information in the Microsoft Intune Subscription View in the ConfigMgr Admin Console

                        • Export functionality for user data/profile, remote connection profile, and company resource access features

                          This is a DCR from one of our MVPs. The ask is for the same export feature that exists for configuration baselines and configuration items be available for:
                          * User data/profiles
                          * Remote connection profiles
                          * Company resource access profiles, such as:
                          - * VPN profiles
                          - * Wi-Fi profiles
                          - * Email profiles
                          - * Certificate profiles

                          The MVP also states that, "the history is important for auditing purposes as well as rollback in case of non-authorized changes.

                          If this is important to you, please vote this up!

                          • Have a right click option for Applications in SCCM to create a collection of devices its installed on.

                            It would be useful if there was an option in the SCCM console to right click on an application and have an option to automatically set up a collection using the detection method specified for the application.

                            i.e. If we have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC v18.11 Application in SCCM, be able to right click it and "create a collection of device or user installs" automatically using the detection method i.e. Windows installer product code or presence of executable plus version etc.

                            Obviously this can be done manually but would be good if it could be made easier :)

                            • Update (CUs) behavoiur on Reports (Report Re-Creation)

                              All MS reports are recreated/overwritten during an update, no matter whether something has changed or not. The update logic checks whether the report has been modified, if so, an ā€˜OLDā€™ version will be created to prevent that individual changes on the default reports will get overwritten. A manual clean-up is necessary afterwards, but mostly nothing has changed anyway within the updated report --> only reports that have changed should be recreated/updated to ease checks on whether modifications are needed.

                                Please add a task sequence step to trigger a full S5 reboot bypassing windows 10 hybrid sleep. This is required for bios updates for Lenovo computers dans requires very ugly hacks to keep the TS from exiting.

                                  when creating a stand alone media, a option to update an existing ISO would be great. also, would be great if you could create an iso and an extract of the iso (like on MDT) so when you copy the files using a slow link connection you only need to copy the changed files and not all files.

                                  • Log to ETW

                                    It would be handy if SCCM Agent (as well as the SCCM Server components) could send logs to ETW (instead or in addition to the files under C:\Windows\CCM\Logs) folder. That would allow us to redirect the events to a central location and analyze with event analysis tools, (i.e. OMS Log Analytics, Message Analyzer, etc.).

                                    • Bug - Office 365 Deployment

                                      Office 365 Client Installation deployment features in 1806 appear to be incomplete and problematic. Uninstall statements are not filled in for one. Application Catalog tab is not filled out either. For some reason, creating deployment sources using the new OCT link integration creates sources which are missing files and generates a 30821-1505 error. Running the setup.exe directly from the source also behaves the same. Running ODT manually appears to work, and the source can be imported into SCCM as it was in prior releases.
