A Policy is a configuration that can control the Application Updates and the OS Updates. Windows policies are different from macOS policies. Windows policies also include Anti-Virus configuration (if the add-on is present).
Policies are used to automate, schedule, or version freeze application updates. Multiple policies can be created and assigned to different groups of computers.
Policies allow you to do the following:
Automate Application Updates.
Auto-Approve Windows Updates and control when they get installed.
Schedule updates (daily, weekly, or monthly), freeze updates and manually push updates from the Deploy Console.
Policies can be created in the control grid view via the Policies tab. Select a Policy Update Mode, customize your settings, and then save the policy.
