ConfigMgr WebService 1.5.0 includes more than 10 new methods, bug fixes and several general improvements. See the list below what’s new for this release:
NOTE – If you’re using ConfigMgr OSD FrontEnd together with ConfigMgr WebService, wait for ConfigMgr OSD FrontEnd 1.3.0 to be released before you upgrade to ConfigMgr WebService 1.5.0.
- Inconsistency in parameter positioning has been addressed. The secretKey parameter is now required as the first parameter for all methods.
- GetCMPrimaryUserByDevice has been renamed to GetCMPrimaryUserByDeviceName.
- AddCMComputerToCollection now requires a device collection ID instead of the device collection name.
- GetCMOSImageVersionForTaskSequence and GetCMOSImageArchitectureForTaskSequence now detects the proper information based upon the selected image index in the task sequence. This fixes a bug for when e.g. using a custom image that contains more than a single index or for Windows 10 version 1709 that changes the order of the indexes.
- RemoveADComputerFromGroup now supports groups that contains more than 1500 members.

We’ve published the source code for the purpose of making it available for those organisations that cannot leverage untrusted publishers, but also if you’d want to get your hands dirty and have a look at it.
If you already have ConfigMgr WebService installed in your environment, you can update it simply by replacing the ConfigMgrWebService.dll file in the bin folder of where you’ve placed the web service files. Please not though, that since version 1.1.0, three new Application Settings was introduced that you need to add manually, or replace the web.config file with the existing one and re-enter the values for each application setting.
If ConfigMgr WebService has been installed by using the included wizard driven installation, run the wizard again and the upgrade process will begin. From version 1.4.0 and onwards, the upgrade experience has improved and previously configured values will not be populated automatically within the wizard. See the documentation embedded in the download package from TechNet Gallery for more information.
