Find List of SCCM Client Settings Assigned for a Device in ConfigMgr Console Easiest Method

The list of client settings feature is useful for troubleshooting scenarios. You can check which are the client settings.

You don’t have to use the PowerShell script or SQL query to find out the list of client settings for a device in SCCM. The client settings list can be accessed from the SCCM admin console itself. The client setting is where to configure SCCM client policies from the server-side.

You can modify default client settings when you want to configure settings for all users and devices in your ConfigMgr hierarchy. You can create a custom settings policy to deploy specific policies to a small set of devices or users.
