One of the new feature in Technical Preview 1912 is the new ConfigMgr Management Insight rules. Management Insights provide information about your current state of environment. Let’s explore these new Insight Rules.
The SCCM management insight rules were first introduced in ConfigMgr version 1802. Since then Microsoft has been adding more rules to benefit the customers. These rules are extremely helpful for admins in determining the current state of ConfigMgr environment.
In my previous posts, I have covered on Management Insights and all of the rules added so far. You can read all of them here.
Most of all, these new insight rules are available in ConfigMgr Technical preview 1912. These are not available in any current branch release yet. However I would like to see all of these rules in current branch release soon. You can read about these TP 1912 features here.
First of all to locate the new ConfigMgr Management Insight rules, go to Administration > Management Insights > All Insights > Configuration Manager Assessment.
Right click on any of the rule and click Re-evaluate. Furthermore, to know what each rule does, right click the rule and then click More Details.
