Configurable alternate name for each package/application for SCCM base installations
Ability to configure/save an alternate SCCM name (alias) for each product that is used when creating Base installation packages/applications in SCCM for the most current version.
Background: We use a special naming convention for applications and packages that are the base for certain scripts/procedures. For example, during OS Deploment we use dynamic variable lists to install packages and applications. To avoid having to adapt these variables in the task sequences to new program versions again and again, we use the following naming convention for the most current applications: "Vendor.Product name" (e.g. "Google.Earth-Pro" or "Mozilla.Firefox-ESR"). Older versions of applications get the version number in the name after their replacement for differentiation (e.g. "Google.Earth-Pro. v07-03-02-05776" or "Mozilla.Firefox_ESR. v60-7-0"). This ensures that the most current version is always installed during the task sequence by the reference of the TS variable to the general name, without us having to edit the task sequence additionally.
