Hi team

after i have test,i have some questions:

1. i have two windows10 test machine,one windows version is 1909,another is 20h2
2.I configured and push control my update according to the document,windows update profile configured target version is 21h1

I know the documentation states that 20h2 and later are supported,but I still have a lot of old versions, such as 1607/1803/1909, etc., so I also want to test the results

Now my test result is:
1.the 1909 windows machine has some patches installed, but it keeps prompting me to restart,I rebooted over and over and it didn't update to 21h1
2.the 20h2 windows machine downloaded and installed 21h1 as expected on the first day after registration,Since then,machine have no notify

my question is:

1.Is the behavior of version 1909 expected as this version is not supported
2.The purpose of the target version is to always remain at this version, so there is a new quality update in this version, it will be downloaded, installed and restarted
3.Are there any suggestions and methods for version updates lower than 20h2

Depending on your patch status, you need to modify the Target release version.

In general the Control My Update solution is fully supported from 1803 and later - the only limitation is the GUI and the profile generation for the devices below 20H2.

There could a lot of different things blocking a feature update.
After the latest CU the FU should getting installed.

If its still not working, feel free to reach out to us via so we can get in direct contact with you.

Hey Wannes,

thanks for the feedback!

Good idea with the ring model! We'll take a look into this.

Patch removal will be coming in the next release (tentative in November).

Hi team。Are there any plans to include the smartgroup parameter in the upload script?Sensors uploaded by default are not assign to any smartgroup。
I found a similar upload script in github (euc-samples, with smartgroup parameter,If use this script,all our sensors script need a specific format,so our sensors cannot be uploaded directly through the script in euc-sample。

We are aware of this!
This will be released in Version 2.2 - promised!

Hi team。It's a great tool, but I still have some questions want to get answered。
I read the documentation "Control My Update", in FAQ it is stated:
“Do I need a Windows Update profile for the Control My Update update installation?
Yes – with the Windows Update CSP / Profile you configure Windows Update itself. The
CMU solution will respect those configurations.”
1.First of all,before configuration control my update,i need to create windows update configuration file in workspaceone uem。I want to know if the script in control my update will force to override the all the update Installation behavior option in windows update profile。
2.I am currently running the onpremise workspaceone uem environment,so there is no script function in my console。Can I push a powershell script to replace the script function using the product feature in Provisioning

First: Thanks for reading the documentation!
1. You need to create a Windows Update configuration - we highly recommend to use the Profile Generator to do this.
The Control My Update will not overwrite the settings. The settings are used to configure Windows Update - for example the deferral of updates.

2. Yes - you can run the script via product provisioning.

Thanks for your reply. but I still have two question:
1.First, I always want all windows update configuration to be executed through the profile generator,but in windows update profile,such as ”Installation behavior option“-“Automatic Updates” option, if I choose Never Check for Updates (Not Recommended), So the device won't install the update?
By the way,is there a recommended windows update profile configuration in uem console?Can I keep the default configuration in profile if I have no requirements for delay and pause;
2.About approval, whether I have configured control my update, I still need approval before all scripts and functions will run

Sorry for asking so many detailed questions, Thanks for your patience

If you want to use the fling to install updates, then you need to disable automatic update installation. Otherwise the Control My Update solution might not install and track the installation status since Windows Update itself installs the update.
So please use the Profile Generator to create a working Windows Update Profile if you want to use the CMU to install updates.
We highly recommend not to use the native Windows Update Profile since its outdated. Please use the Profile Generator to generate a supported Windows Update profile.

2. Update approval is not supported by Microsoft. Please watch for a general Windows Update overview.

For the Control My Update solution, please watch
