Let’s find out more details about SCCM Apps in this post. SQL Query All SCCM Applications with no Deployments. SCCM provides a management insights feature to deliver these types of information in the console itself.

In the Configuration Manager console, you have the capability to confidently pinpoint SCCM applications that are without deployments or references. This empowers you to effectively identify applications that require attention.

Access to management insights can streamline the process by providing the necessary data without the need to run time-consuming and complex SQL queries. You can read more about management insights from SCCM Management Insights – A Deep Dive Experience For IT Admins.

  1. I agree that this query is helpful in identifying “empty” (for lack of a better term) applications that are just taking up space in your ConfigMgr (EndpointMgr) environment… but there is a scenario where you do not want to delete an application that you’re no longer deploying — if you have a newer application that you have supersedence configured for to ensure that the ConfigMgr client removes the previous app and installs the latest one.

    In those cases, you just simply need to monitor compliance for the previous application and as soon as you have no instances of it in your environment, you can remove the supersedence configuration on the newer application and delete the older application with no deployments.

  2. v_Package pkg on pkg.SecurityKey = apps.ModelName

    this information shows information only for applications as apps.model name contains only scope*** and no id’s contains, which is not available for other packages, drivers etc…
