Alter Patch Command
Please provide the ability to customize the patching command which is used.
Up until the adoption of Update Manager, we had been using custom patching scripts in Linux which downloaded and staged all available patches locally on the host. This allowed us to download the same set of patches on hosts across every environment and then apply them on different schedules.
All that was required during out maintenance window was to install the staged patches. This provided us with a great deal more control than is available with Update Manager today as well as increased speed of updating since all patches were already downloaded.
I'd like to have the ability to leverage Update Manager to execute our existing process on a schedule.

Hi Justin, I work on Azure-native patching for Linux VMs and would like to learn more about your scenario. Do you mind reaching out to me at kjohn [at] microsoft.com?
