    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.
