Support for "Optional" Update Deployment
Azure Update Management does not currently consider updates that are flagged as "Optional" by Microsoft. When pointing clients to Windows Update or Microsoft Update, SQL Server Service Packs come in as "Optional". As such, when using Azure Update Management + Microsoft Update (NOT WSUS) the SQL Server Service Packs are not deployed. They need to be installed via another means (SCCM, manually etc.)
Please add support for Optional Updates in Azure Update Management so we can deploy SQL SP's this way.
This only applies to full SQL SP's and not SP Updates which are not flagged as optional in Microsoft Update
