Update 2204 for the Technical Preview Branch of Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager has been released. In this release, administrators can now organize automatic deployment rules (ADR) using folders. This feature helps to enable better categorization and management of ADRs. Folder management is also supported with PowerShell Cmdlets.




This preview release also includes:

Administration Service Management option

When configuring Azure Services, a new option called Administration Service Management is now added for enhanced security. Selecting this option allows administrators to segment their admin privileges between cloud management gateway (CMG) and administration service. By enabling this option, access is restricted to only administration service endpoints. Configuration Management clients will authenticate to the site using Azure Active Directory.



Currently, the administration service management option can’t be used with CMG.


For more details and to view the full list of new features in this update, check out our Features in Configuration Manager technical preview version 2204 documentation. 


Update 2204 for Technical Preview Branch is available in the Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager Technical Preview console. For new installations, the 2202 baseline version of Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager Technical Preview Branch is available on the Microsoft Evaluation Center. Technical Preview Branch releases give you an opportunity to try out new Configuration Manager features in a test environment before they are made generally available.


We would love to hear your thoughts about the latest Technical Preview! Send us feedback directly from the console.
