    This can be done today w/ #SCCM 1802 (and previous versions too). I will mark started… and watch comments for why this doesn’t just work… before I mark this straight up completed…

    Steps:
    1) On the CAS (or standalone primary), go to Administration → Hierarchy Configuration → Discovery methods
    2) right click on Active Directory System Discovery and bring up the Properties form. Active Directory Attributes tab, and then click on Custom. In the form that appears, type the name of the attribute. Click OK, and make sure you have added it as an attribute to discover. Run discovery after exiting properties form.
    3) Now when you go to the Devices view and right click on a device and go to its Properties form, you will see the new attribute showing up there.

    hey djam,

    we are currently using sccm cb 1810 and to my knowledge still no way to easily view ad description for devices from the console. Is this still being considered as a future feature?

    The data is being collected and we can get the description if we follow the steps you have in the getting started note. I know personally I would really like it taken one step further and added to the UI so many devices can be quickly identified by ad description in the console. Would save me time daily if i could see the description without going into properties. All our computer names are L###### so without descriptions it makes hard to identify devices in the console.

    I was hoping to be able to add a column in the console view for this so that you wouldn't have to click on the device and go to properties. This way you could sort the list as well by AD Description

    I would at least like to be able to view the description from the console, when you have several thousand computer named the inventory number it is hard to figure out what is what without descriptions. We already build queries from this data, if I remember correctly we had to add it to the AD sync settings.

    Noted  ·  sangeev responded

    Hi. I’m setting the status back to Noted – this was mixed up with the item “Add support for TFTP Window Size” – that has been Started and is available in the 1603 tech preview build.

    Thanks,
    BobMN on behalf of SangeeV for SCCM OS Deployment
