Creating Windows Intune Automatic Update Approval Rules

Updated: December 17, 2012

Applies To: Windows Intune

In the Windows Intune administrator console, you can specify new updates that satisfy certain conditions to be approved to specified groups automatically.

Create an Automatically Approved Update Rule

You can create, edit, delete, or run rules that enable updates to be approved automatically.

noteNote
When an automatic approval rule is created it only approves future updates, and does not automatically approve previously existing updates that already exist in Windows Intune. To approve these updates you need to run the automatic approval rule. For more information, see Edit, Run, or Delete an Automatically Approved Update Rule below.

To create a new rule that lets updates be approved automatically

  1. Open the Windows Intune administrator console.

  2. In the workspace shortcuts pane, click the Administration icon.

  3. In the navigation pane, under Administration, click Updates.

  4. On the Server Settings: Updates page, scroll down to the Automatic Approval Rules area, and then click New.

  5. On the General page of the Create Automatic Approval Rule Wizard, type the name of the new automatic approval rule and optionally a description, and then click Next.

  6. On the Product Categories page, specify the products for which you want to have updates approved automatically by selecting the check boxes, and then click Next.

  7. On the Update Classifications page, specify the update classifications that you want to have approved automatically, and then click Next.

  8. On the Deployment page, do the following:

    • Select a computer group to which you want to deploy the new rule, and then click Add. You can add multiple groups to deploy the rule to.

    • To specify an installation deadline for the updates, select the Enforce an installation deadline for these updates check box, and then on the Installation deadline list, select an installation deadline interval after the rule has been approved.

      noteNote
      If you specify an installation deadline, the managed computer may require one or more restarts after the deadline interval has passed and the rule is applied.

    • After you have completed the settings you want, click Next.

  9. On the Summary page, review the parameters for the new rule, and then click Finish.

Edit, Run, or Delete an Automatically Approved Update Rule

In the Administration workspace, you can check the parameters for each stored approval rule, and then decide to change, run, or delete the rule.

noteNote
You can delete a rule so that it does not automatically approve new updates. Deleting a rule does not affect previous updates that were approved by the deleted rule.

To edit, run, or delete an automatically approved update rule

  1. Open the Windows Intune administrator console.

  2. In the workspace shortcuts pane, click the Administration icon.

  3. In the navigation pane, under Administration, click Updates.

  4. On the Server Settings: Updates page, click Automatic Approval Rules.

  5. In the Automatic Approval Rules area, select the rule that you want to edit, run, or delete, and then do one of the following:

    • To edit the rule, click Edit, and then change the rule’s parameters in the Update Auto Approval Rule Wizard.

    • To delete the rule, click Delete.

    • To run the rule, click Run Selected.
