Add Update Management support for Oracle Enterprise Linux
Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) is not currently supported by Azure Update Management.
Update Management is an important feature in Azure to patch VMs OS and currently (based on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/automation/update-management/update-mgmt-overview#clients) the following Linux distributions are supported: CentOS 6/7, RHE 6/7, SUSE 11/12 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 16.04 LTS and 1804 .
This will be beneficial for businesses with heavy Oracle Software presence when they consider Azure as a cloud provider (AWS supports OEL for their Automated Update feature)
Official support for Oracle Linux is expected by Q2 CY’21.

Any update on the timeline to officially support Oracle Linux by Azure's Update Management (was shared Q2-2021)?
