Quality update deferral period


does anyone have an understanding of how the Quality update deferral period works. I currently set the deferral for out production systems to 5 days. but i don’t know when that 5 days occurs. is that 5 days after patch Tuesday or a generic number say after the system sees that update as available.

    I hope that was for the first time. After that WUfB will respect the setting of 5 days delay every month.

    It’s documented https://snipboard.io/hPVd49.jpg

      Anoop, thank you the wording was confusing me as i was sure if it deferred 5 days each month. i am assuming the deferral occurs after the 2nd Tuesday of each month then.


    To answer your question -(if understand correct) – The count down starts from the day when the Windows 10 device receives the policy


      so would that mean each month i have to create a new policy so that patches get delayed. I am trying to set things up similar to sccm where i have a pilot group for the patches that are applied right away then production gets it a week later. so i thought if i set the differ to 7 days each month 7 days after patches come out it will install.

    Have you had a chance look into it?
