    The use case here is for dynamic, user-generated actions.

    I couldn't agree more and this was feedback I gave on the main Server Groups User Voice item which is now closed.

    I would argue the better solution here is to integrate this into the existing script feature. It's kind of a travesty that when Server Groups was rebuilt 'from the ground up' they didn't do that already.

    No votes but sign me up for this one. If the team is looking to use the power of the cloud to give you insights into your environment this seems like a no-brainer to me.

    Yes please! There's so many poorly written queries out there. Even if you know to use indexed fields ... how can you know which are and which aren't?

    Related to this, we should put some kind of preview function that gives results and timing for queries. If we want people to write more efficient queries then let's give them to tools to do so.

    A picture says a thousand words, I should have included this from the start

    This feature was introduced in the product in 1802 and came out of pre-release in 1806: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/osd/deploy-use/create-phased-deployment-for-task-sequence

    I forget when exactly but at some point in the Current Branch releases I believe this was implemented.

    Yep, you've got the column there ... but it's never populated.

    Agreed. There's already a few UV items for downloaded/deployed. Expired updates by definition cannot be deployed and an ADR cannot select them as-is.

    Tom, when used by ConfigMgr WSUS does not download updates content. At least, it should be. If it is then you have a mis-configuration somewhere along the line.

    That being said, ConfigMgr _will_ store the content twice by design. First in the source folder for your (update) deployment packages and then again in the content library. The later is single-instance-storage but it's at the file level so you aren't going to gain much, if anything, with updates.

    Another area I'd like to see these used is the Server Group patching pre and post scripts.

    Ok ... but the whole point of Phased updates is to make the phases based on reaching some kind of success/fail. If you want to make it based on date ... use normal deployments? What, specifically, are you looking for here that normal date-based deployments don't do?

    Welp ... someone's gotta say it: this is fixed in the latest release.

    This is the one thing keeping my organization from being able to adopt modern management in our environment and is really hurting our cloud adoption. (Try not to think about that too hard or it'll hurt.) Why even bother developing the product if this isn't included?

    Further, along the same lines. The other thing that nearly always failed was for the installation process to verify that all components/roles had been stopped. Every. Single. Time. SQL would fail to go into single user mode because there were active connections to the DB and thus the upgrade would fail part way through.

    AMEN Christopher. In our org our DBAs (who really are great, we love them) wanted a service account for the install versus using my own account. Makes migrations much easier when the DBO isn't an account that is no longer in AD. As a result, almost all of our initial upgrade attempts failed for one reason or another. So please enhance the pre-req check to look for all the necessary permisssions needed. Just today my TP upgrade stalled for hours before failing b/c it wasn't a local admin on the stie server. Had to dig into the logs to figure out it couldn't create a folder due to lack of permissions. This just seems like a very straight-forward thing to add.

    For reference, all of this and more: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/hierarchy/accounts#site-installation-account

    What you're looking for is the Update Reset tool released in CB 1706: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/servers/manage/update-reset-tool

    FWIW, this was introduced in CB 1806.
