  3. [Feature Request] - Admin Center - Windows Update integration

    Because Microsoft does not provide any documentation on usoclient.exe, it is not (reliably) possible (useing PowerShell) to get clients to install updates (immediately), etc. (especially drivers provided by WSUS).
    Request: Admin Center integrated feature "WSUS" which makes it possible to retrieve pending Windows updates remotely, install etc. (similar GUI as in W10 itself, at least the same funktions LIKE LOKAL GUI!)

  5. HTTP Compression

    We noticed WAC is very quick over the LAN, but nearly unusable over VPN. Watching the size and amount of files being transferred, wouldnt some HTTP compression help this? Do not see a way to enable, but thinking this may help performance when this amount of large files are transferred (manifest.json, etc.)

  6. Please add a logout button

    Please add a logout button. Chrome asks me for my credentials when I login. I would like the option to switch. If there is ever a login, there needs to be a logout.

    Thank you.

  8. version

    Display the full build version of the host machine being managed in the Overview section. Currently, it just displays the major build revision of Win 10. It should also show the minor build revision that reflects the monthly cumulative update. For example, it currently displays 10.0.18362 when it should show 10.0.18362.476.

  9. Do not automatically show gateway host in "All connections" view

    My gateway server is like a Jump Server, so I don't want it to be compulsorily displayed on the "All connections" view.
    Please give us an option to prevent this default connection item. But still allows the server to be explicitly added by the user or through Shared Connections.

  15. Powershell and RDP SSO for Gateway Mode

    Currently when deploying Windows Admin Center in Gateway Mode, Extension tools such as Powershell and RDP do no support SSO experience(even with RBCD). Manual Authentication is a Must to get access to this Tools. This becomes a Show stopper when using Smart Card Authentication, as password prompt doesn't offer Smartcard login.

    One would expect SSO for all tools however the expected behavior should be a Prompt that supports Smart based based login instead of Password.

    Can this be added as a feature update?

  16. Store Manage As credentials in Shared Connections

    We not only want to share the connections between operators using the WAC, but also want to store the "manage as" credential per connection or connection group.

    Would be great, if this can be implemented in a secure way in the core of WAC.

  17. Performance Monitor WAC

    I like the performance counter in WAC. But I will still use Grafana for these reasons:
    I would like to choose the display unit: change bytes/sec in Gbyte/s for example
    Change the decimal (no decimal for example for reads/sec or write/sec counter)
    On the reports, have thresholds with different colors

  18. show Windows Update on Dashboard

    It will be a good Idea to select more than one server and have it search for updates.. instead of one by one.. Once a month I have to spend hours just on waiting for the servers to apply the updates.. it will be a great Idea to centralize that...

  19. Save Performance Monitor captures in WAC

    I stopped by the Windows Admin Center booth at Ignite and discovered the new Performance Monitor in WAC is not capable of capturing performance data to a file. If there is a need to capture data over time then you need to revert back to the "old" Performance Monitor. It would be nice to have this capability added to the new Performance Monitor in WAC. Hopefully this is already on the road map but if not hopefully it will find its way there.

  20. Improve connection search to find words across multiple tags

    We are planning on using Shared Connections to automatically create connections all servers across the company (around 2000) for all Admins, and use individual, standardised tags on each connection to identify OS, AD Domain, AD Site, Business Service, etc. If we search for a single word within the tags, all connections that have tags that match the searched word will be displayed. If, however, we enter two separate words that should be found across separate tags, the connection list will not display any connections.

    Improving the connection search to find any word in any tag (or attribute) across the connection…
