Copy Discovery Data from the SCCM console

One of the most popular feature of SCCM technical preview 2004 is the ability to copy discovery data from the SCCM console. Let’s take a look at this new feature in detail.

Yes it is now possible to copy or even export the discovery data of a user or device in the SCCM console. This feature was actually an UserVoice feedback, and Microsoft decided to get this added in 2004 TP.

The feature to copy discovery data from the SCCM console is currently introduced in technical preview 2004. However I wish to see this feature added in the next current branch release.

So with this new feature you can copy discovery data from devices and users in the console. In addition to copying the data, you can export them all to a .csv file. These new actions make it easier for you to quickly get this data from the console.

For example, if you had to copy the MAC address of a device before you re-image it, it was too tedious to do that. But with the copy feature, you can quickly copy the MAC address of a device. Let me show you how this feature works.

Copy Discovery Data from the SCCM console

  • In the SCCM console, go to the Assets and Compliance workspace.
  • Right click an user or device and click Properties.
  • On the General tab, in the Discovery data list, select one or more properties.
  • Right-click the selection, and click Copy Value.

When you right click a selection, you will find the following options.

  • Copy value – This copies just the value. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + C to copy the data.
  • Copy property and value – Copies both the property name and the corresponding value. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + C.
  • Select all – Selects all properties and values. Useful if you want copy all the discovery data of device or a user. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + A.
  • Save results as – First select properties and save values to a comma-separated values (CSV) file.
