Deploying Windows Updates to your Systems with Windows Update Policy

The JumpCloud agent can be used to control the download and deployment of Windows Updates to Windows computers with the Windows Update Policy, "Configure Windows Updates".

The JumpCloud agent can control:
  1. Automatic installation of minor updates that do not require a reboot.
  2. Automatic installation of updates during an automatic maintenance window (if this option is chosen).
The JumpCloud agent cannot control:
  1. Which updates are being pushed outside of the checkboxes making the distinction between "minor" and "standard" Microsoft updates.

Prerequisites:
See the Getting Started: Policies document for prerequisites and for how you can apply JumpCloud Policies to your Systems.
