  • Article
  • 17 minutes to read

With Intune, you can deploy updates to Windows 10/11 devices by using policies for Update rings for Windows 10 and later and Feature updates for Windows 10 and later. To help you monitor and troubleshoot update deployments, Intune supports the following reporting options:

  • Reports in Intune:

    • Windows 10 update rings – Use a built-in report that's ready by default when you deploy update rings to your devices.
    • Windows 10 feature updates – Use two built-in reports that work together to gain a deep picture of update status and issues. These reports require you to configure data collection from devices before the reports can display data about feature updates.
  • Windows Update for Business reports:

    Use Windows Update for Business reports with Intune to monitor Windows update rollouts. Windows Update for Business reports is a free service built on Azure Monitor and Log Analytics.

For more information, see Monitor Windows Updates with Windows Update for Business reports in the Windows documentation.

Reports for Update rings for Windows 10 and later policy

Intune offers integrated report views for the Windows update ring policies you deploy. These views display details about the update ring deployment and status:

  1. Sign in to Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center.

  2. Select Devices > Monitor. Then under Software updates select Per update ring deployment state and choose the deployment ring to review.

Reports for Windows 10 and later feature updates policy

Intune offers integrated reports to view detailed Windows update deployment status for devices using Feature updates for Windows 10 and later policies. To use reports for this feature, you must first configure prerequisites and policies that support data collection from devices.

The data in the Intune reports for Feature updates for Windows 10 and later policy is used only for these reports and doesn't surface in other Intune reports.

  • Windows 10 feature updates (Organizational) - This report provides an overall view of compliance for devices on a per-policy basis.
  • Feature update failures report (Operational) – This report provides details on Alerts – errors, warnings, information, and recommendations – on a per-policy basis to help troubleshoot and optimize your devices.

Before you can use the feature updates policy reports, you must configure prerequisites for the report.

Prerequisites

  • Data collection: Before a device can send the reporting data that's used in the Windows 10 feature updates report for Intune, you must Configure data collection:

    • Service-based data is collected for all feature update versions and doesn't require you to configure data collection.
    • Client-based data is collected from devices only after data collection is configured.

    Service and client-based data is described in Use the Windows 10 feature updates (Organizational) report later in this article.

    (Video) Windows Update for Business Reports | EUC365

  • Devices: Devices must:

    • Meet the prerequisites for Windows 10 and later feature updates policy as documented in Feature updates for Windows 10 and later policy in Intune.
    • Be Azure Active Directory Joined, or Hybrid Azure Active Directory Joined to support submitting of data for reporting.
    • Run Windows 10 1903 or later, or Windows 11. Although Windows 10 and later feature updates policy supports earlier versions of Windows, earlier versions don't support reporting of the data that Intune uses for the feature updates reports.

Configure data collection

The data that powers Intune's Windows feature updates reports isn't collected by the typical device sync with Intune, but through the Windows health monitoring device configuration policy, which uses the Windows 10/11 and Windows Server Connected User Experiences and Telemetry component (DiagTrack) to collect the data from Intune-managed devices. To enable use of this data in the reports, you must configure devices to send Windows Updates data.

Enable data collection

To Configure this setting for your devices, Create a profile with the following information:

  • Platform: Select Windows 10 and later

  • Profile: Select Windows health monitoring

  • Name: Enter a descriptive name for the profile, like Intune data collection policy

  • Description: Enter a description for the profile. This setting is optional, but recommended.

  • In Configuration Settings:

    • Health Monitoring: Select Enable to collect event information from supported Windows 10/11 devices

    • Scope: Select Windows Updates.

  • Use the Scope tags and Applicability rules to filter the profile to specific IT groups or devices in a group that meet a specific criteria. Only Windows 10 version 1903 and later and Windows 11 are supported for these reports.

    Use Windows Update for Business reports for Windows Updates in Microsoft Intune - Microsoft Intune (1)

When you complete the creation of the Windows health monitoring profile, the profile deploys to the assigned groups, and configuration of data collection is complete.

It can take up to 24 hours after setting up Windows health monitoring with Windows updates before the policy is applied.

Tip

If you use Endpoint Analytics, you can modify the existing configuration profile. The same policy is used to collect data for Endpoint Analytics.

About reporting data latency

The data for these reports is generated at different times, which depend on the type of data:

  • Service-based data from Windows Update – This data typically arrives in less than an hour after an event happens in the service. Events include Alerts for a device that can't register with Windows Update (which is viewable in the Feature update failures report), to status updates about when Windows Update began offering an update to clients. This data is available without configuring data collection.

  • Client-based data from Intune devices that are configured to send data to Intune – This data is processed in batches and refreshes every eight hours, but is only available after you configure data collection. The data contains information like when a client doesn't have enough disk space to install an update. This data is also used in the Windows 10 feature updates organizational report to show the various installation steps a device moves through when installing feature updates.

Use the Windows 10 feature updates (Organizational) report

The Windows 10 feature updates report provides an overview of compliance for devices you target with a Windows feature updates policy.

Important

Before this report can show data, you must configure data collection for the Windows feature updates reports.

This report provides you update installation status that's based on the update state from device and device-specific update details. The data in this report is timely, calls out the device name and state, and other update-related details. This report also supports filtering, searching, paging, and sorting.

To use the report:

  1. Sign in to the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center.

  2. To view a summary report across all Windows 10 and later feature updates policies:
