Authorization failure message in admin service now shown in Status message viewer


We have introduced audit messages about authorization failure in admin service. You can now view request details and status messages. These messages will be shown in “All Status Message” at “Status Message Queries” in “Monitoring” ribbon. Previously these failures were logged in log files.


With the new audit messages, we intend to avoid inconvenience of log files rollback. Details about the user, resource access attempts and the number of attempts for all the authorized requests made by user in a day will now be available. We are also auditing read operations for HTTPS requests and for cloud-initiated operations. This will help admins to scope permission and roles of users while also determining if there are any malicious users.


For more information, see Administration Service documentation.


Network Access Account (NAA) account usage alert


If your site is configured with NAA account, you'll see this new prerequisite warning added. To improve the security of distribution points configured with NAA account, review the existing accounts and their relevant permissions. If it has more than minimal required permission, then remove and add a minimal permission account. Don't configure any administrator level permission accounts on the NAA. If the site server is configured with HTTPS / EHTTP, we recommend removing NAA account, which is unused.


For more information, see the description of this permissions-for-the-network-access-account.


Improvements to Cloud Sync (Collections to Azure Active Directory Group Synchronization) feature


Starting with Configuration Manager version 2211, the scalability of this feature has been improved with better throttling and error handling. Additionally, dedicated dashboards for user collections and device collections are added in Monitoring workspace to show Cloud Sync status. The dashboard displays the Cloud Sync status per collection with the mapped Azure AD group, total member count, synced member count, status (success, failed, in progress) and last sync details.


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 2211 documentation.
