  1. preserve permissions on cd.latest folder after CM update

    After applying an SCCM update via in-console servicing, permissions on the cd.latest folder are not retained. This requires any process/account backing up the cd.latest folder to have read access re-granted after every SCCM update.

  2. Save/Remove-CMSoftwareUpdate without content distribution

    Would be really nice to have option to choose wheter to distribute content or not while using Save/Remove-CMSoftwareUpdate cmdlets.

    When we use this is normally within our clean-up scripts and almost never need immediate content update.

    As a result our distribution queues lose threads to unnecessary package processing.

    I appreciate the support!

    Have a nice one!

  4. Add link to Component Status description errors

    When reviewing Component Status error messages the description field is often vague and leaves one guessing as to what the issue really is. Would be nice if MS could add a link to description field or another area that would point to specific and relevant information.

  5. Add-CMScriptDeploymentType fails if both -ProductCode and -AddDetectionClause are specified

    We recently upgraded from ConfigMgr 1706 to 1806. I'm finding that when running the Add-CMScriptDeploymentType cmdlet, it fails with an AmbiguousParameterSet when both ProductCode and AddDetectionClause are specified (the application I'm adding needs both an MSI product code and a registry key detection). This wasn't happening before and appears to be a bug, as the parameter set I'm trying to use specifies the ProductCode as mandatory with the AddDetectionClause as optional (the parameter set I'm trying to use has ProductCode, DeploymentTypeName, InstallCommand and InputObject as the only mandatory parameters, according to the help).

  6. Console behavior after reconnecting to the network

    After you reconnect to the network, the console stops to work correctly.
    Some functions works without issues, other's don't, for example looking up a user in "assets and compliance", and clicking "Primary device" wont return the the actual device, but goes into "Devices" view displaying all the devices. Other functions may result in error messages. A simple restart of the console does fix this, not a big deal, but sometimes a bit of an annoyance if it happens when you creating a new deployment or doing some larger task.

  7. There should be an option to select existing packages other then PS,VBS & JS scripts for Compliance remediation.

    There should be an option to select existing packages/application other then PS,VBS & JS scripts for Compliance remediation. most orgs just miss out some pcs and compliance is mainly used by many company's to get the software installed to the missing ones.

    We can create a collection for non compliant systems and deploy app/package to them manually, but giving an option in remediation option will make it easy/simple and user-friendly.

  8. Bug: Folders for Software Updates are not independent for Windows 10 Servicing and Office 365

    Consider the following user story on 1802:

    I decided to organize all my software updates that are synchronized in my hierarchy by creating folders such as YYYY-MM. After performing move operations on these updates that were released within this format I noticed that the folders are duplicated underneath the 'Windows 10 Servicing" node and Office 365 Updates node. When I browse for the updates in the folders I created under "All Software Updates" my updates visible as expected; however these folders are triplicated down the side of the console and are all empty in other nodes.

    From the All Software…

  9. Third party update Dell Update group by models

    1. When creating new ADR only published Dell updates are searchable to be added, any updates that are not published won’t be shown in the search results. Since publish updates means having updates downloaded first, we have to manually publish the updates we need before creating the ADR selectively, which brings up issue #2;
    2. Since in issue #1 we need to publish updates first before we can create new ADRs, can we group Dell updates by models, say all Dell updates for 9020, since we want to filter Dell updates only with the models we have, then we create…

  10. If you rename a Software Update Group, ADR is not working anymore

    Hi,

    please check if this is a bug or we made something weird: If you rename a Software Update Group which is created by an Automatic Deployment Group, the ADR is crashing on next run.

    Sometimes we need to rename them if a product is added or removed.

    Cool Option would be if you rename an ADR, the Name of the Group + Deployment will be updated with a new Name, too.

    Thanks in Advance

    Florian

  11. merge source with update

    Servicing mode of Any package or application that are created like
    O365 Client to be patched or update thru an Software update that will modified the content (slipstream) with the latest version .
    like this we can use into an TS or any new Advertisement with the correct source uptodate.
    And spare bandwith and deployment time for be ready on User side (not creating an initial deployment that will be patched after by and Software update one) to achive the result of end user side to have the latest one.

  12. Allow user messaging

    It would be nice to have a ability to show custom messages to inform the user that a software installation is in progress and the computer must not be restarted or disconnect from the network.
    Something similar to outlook notifications.
    This should be specific for each package/application; and it should be available at least at begin/end of installation (or even in case of error)

  13. Use the content library also for client cache

    Please bring the Content Library to the Client Cache. That would be nice to have in some cases only a sync Methode instead of downloading over BITS a kompressed file.

  14. Temporary Collections

    Create a new Collection class called "Temporary Collections". When you choose to create a temporary collection, you would be presented with a field to specify the date and time the collection will automatically be deleted. This would be useful for one-time deployments or point in time usage collections. There would need to be logic to prevent other non-temporary collections from using these as limiting, excludes, or includes, but ultimately this would assist greatly in large enterprises and collection creep.

  15. SMSTSPostReboot / SMSTSOnStart command

    When a specific app or utility needs to be run (ex. a custom monitoring application) after each restart, it would be handy if we could put the command in a variable. The command should then be executed after each restart, before the TS continues.

  16. An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it.

    An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it. This will help manage DP disk space efficiently as most of the content never gets used at a remote site but we do not know what's really needed in advance. With semi annual channels the content problem is getting worse each day.

    Below is the config manager thread I had opened and an expert asked me to submit a request here.

  17. Allow dependency to not run if parent is already detected

    Add a checkbox to Deployment Type Dependency that will "Allow dependency to not run if the parent is already detected".

    In other words, if the parent Application is deployed to a client, but the parent App Detection is already satisfied (it's already installed), do not install the dependency app if the option is checked.

    This would be most useful in short-circuiting long dependency chains, where you don't need to install any prereqs for a dependency app because it is already installed.

  20. searchbar on devices tab

    It would be nice if the search bar on the devices tab would remove trailing spaces before searches. The issue is that we copy and paste a device name from a report and there will sometime be a trailing space that comes along with the paste. If this space is present when hitting the search button, the search will not find the device.
