Approving a Declined Update in Windows Intune

Updated: December 17, 2012

Applies To: Windows Intune

If you decline an update in the Windows Intune administrator console, that update is removed from all default list views in the Updates workspace. If you decide later to install the update on one or more groups of computers, you can approve the update.

If an update was declined because the update was expired in Microsoft Update, that update cannot be approved in the Windows Intune administrator console.

Unless the action Do Not Install or Required Install was explicitly configured for a child group, an action configured for a parent group is inherited by all its children.

To locate a declined update and approve it for installation on a group of computers

  1. Open the Windows Intune administrator console.

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

  3. In the navigation pane, select All Updates, or if you know the classification type, in the navigation pane, click the classification type. You can also use the Search feature to locate the update or a list of updates in the classification.

  4. In the Filters list, select Declined. The list of all declined updates (in that classification, if you specified a classification) is displayed in the list.

  5. Select an update, review the update properties at the bottom of the page to ensure that you want to approve the update, and then click Approve on the taskbar.

    To select multiple updates in the list, press and hold the Ctrl key, and then click each update that you want to approve.

  6. On the Select Groups page, select a group for which you want to manage the updates approval, and then click Add. When you have finished specifying groups, click Next.

  7. On the Deployment Action page, perform the following actions for each group in the list:

    • On the Approval list, select one of the following:

      • Required Install. Installs the update on computers in the specified group.

      • Do Not Install. Reports applicability only and neither installs nor uninstalls the update.

    • On the Deadline list, select one of the following:

      • None. Indicates that no deadline is enforced for the installation of the update and users may decline the update continually.

      • As soon as possible. Installs the update at the next opportunity by all targeted computers.

      • Custom. Specifies the date and time that approved updates are installed.

  8. Click Finish to save the settings, or click Cancel to discard the settings and return to the updates list.

  9. You can check the details pane at the bottom of the Updates page for reminder messages about the update.
