Update 2002.2 for the Technical Preview Branch of Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager has been released. This preview release includes:


Improvements to support for ARM64 devices - This release improves upon the support for devices with the ARM64 processor. The All Windows 10 (ARM64) platform is now available in the list of supported OS versions on the following objects:

  • Configuration item supported platforms
  • Application deployment type requirements
  • Package program requirements
  • Task sequence advanced properties


Support for 64-bit macOS Catalina - Configuration Manager now supports the 64-bit macOS Catalina version 10.15.


Search all subfolders for configuration items and configuration baselines - Similar to improvements in previous releases, you can now use the All Subfolders search option from the Configuration Items and Configuration Baselines nodes.


Management insight rules for proper HTTPS configuration - This release includes additional management insight rules to help you configure your site for secure HTTPS communication:

  • Sites that don't have proper HTTPS configuration
  • Devices not uploaded to Azure AD

Improvements to BitLocker management - In Configuration Manager current branch version 1910, to integrate the BitLocker recovery service you had to HTTPS-enable a management point. The HTTPS connection is necessary to encrypt the recovery keys across the network from the Configuration Manager client to the management point. Starting in this version, the HTTPS requirement is for the IIS website that hosts the recovery service, not the entire management point role. This change relaxes the certificate requirements, and still encrypts the recovery keys in transit.


Improvements to extend and migrate on-premises site to Microsoft Azure - Extend and migrate on-premises site to Microsoft Azure now supports provisioning multiple site system roles on a single Azure virtual machine. You can add site system roles after the initial Azure virtual machine deployment has completed.


Update 2002.2 for Technical Preview Branch is available in the Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager Technical Preview console. For new installations, the 1911 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.
