SCCM Community Hub Explained Scripts Reports and Documentation

SCCM community Hub is the central location within your SCCM console where you can share useful SCCM objects with other admins. SCCM Community hub is released in SCCM 1902 Production version with limited capabilities.

SCCM Community has developed a lot of useful tools to help admins. These solutions are spread across many locations/blogs. The SCCM Community hub allows access to all these solutions directly from the SCCM console.

The community hub helps to avoid recreating CMPivot queries, Scripts, Console extensions, and Reports from scratch. Microsoft built a community hub in Configuration Manager where SCCM Admins can share.
