    We’re currently reviewing enhancements around approved and time-delayed patching.

    In the interim – there are two ways to achieve your scenario “exactly same updates” in Dev & then Prod, by either manipulating the OS behavior or tweaking the AUM config:

    1. - Host the updates locally using Microsoft WSUS [https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/automation/automation-configure-windows-update#make-wsus-configuration-settings] or Reposync utility from RedHat [https://access.redhat.com/solutions/23016]or Ubuntu Landscape [https://docs.ubuntu.com/landscape/], etc. And the configure the update service or package manager of all your machines to use the local update source. In this way the updates installed when using Update Management will only be what is available in your local patch server which is running (say) WSUS or RH Reposync. And if the patch server remain unchanged in 2-3 weeks when you start update schedule for Prod, they will also fetch updates from same local patch server and have exactly same updates as your non-prod.
    1. - Use the…

    We'd like to say: 'update the system with all packages that were available on the 1st of March, at 00:01'. In this way, we could run the update on the 5th of March for DEV, 12th of March on ACC, etcetera, but the result would be the same.

    The same functionality is for example available if you use Red Hat Satellite (or Spacewalk), but it would be much more preferable to integrate this within Azure Patch Management.
