    While there is no explicit button or option in AUM for rollback. Currently, we have mechanisms in place which customers can use to roll-back updates across machine. You can still achieve the same implicitly today by:

    a) In Azure Update Management, setup a pre-script which will execute backup job for the VM. More details on pre/post script here: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/automation/update-management/pre-post-scripts . Since the pre-script runbook is executed in Azure Automation before patching is done, it will ensure backup is done; which you can later use for rollback. This can be used for Windows & Linux machines – more useful for Linux, where rollback/uninstall of a patch is difficult.
    For sample PS, on setting up backup job for a VM – see: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/backup/quick-backup-vm-powershell

    b) In Azure Automation, setup independent to Azure Update Management and PowerShell based runbook to uninstall Windows Update KB.
    For sample PS, on uninstalling a Windows Update KB…

    @koshy, We'd need this for both Linux and Windows obviously. Any update when will this be implemented? This is critical for us.

    Azure Active Directory has some of these capabilities included. Our current roadmap and strategy is more aligned with Change-tracking for Azure virtual machines. Please continue to share related feedback to help us determine if this is something we should consider investing in.

    Update Management is a wrapper which uses your machine’s OS update service or package manager – to fetch & install updates.

    On Windows Server OS – the Microsoft Update Service can be configured fetch & updates for MS products. And hence UM, then can allow installing MS updates as well. More details here: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/automation/update-management/configure-wuagent#enable-updates-for-other-microsoft-products

    Microsoft Update Service on Windows Server OS doesn’t update 3rd party software say Adobe or Java. Hence update management solution can’t also in-turn do the same. Unless tools like Wsus Package Publisher ( https://github.com/DCourtel/Wsus_Package_Publisher ) is used which can publish third-party applications into your WSUS.

    Shavlik and Ivanti. 3rd Party patching should have been an out of the box feature.

    There should be an ability to create server groups(Non Azure servers, Servers on AWS, Servers on premise) based on their OU structure. We have a .jason file placed on each server with some properties i.e. Environment, Patch Schedule etc.

    So, for example if the "Patch Schedule" property contains "A", Azure should be able to group all the computers that have the "Patch Schedule" property mentioned as "A". This needs to be done dynamically.
    Secondly, if we can have the "tags" feature for Non-Azure servers, Servers on AWS, Servers on premise that'd be great!

    Thanks for the feedback. We support groups up to 500 computers large in the Azure Portal, but we hear that isn’t enough and we can look at increasing this up to “a few thousand”. Please feel free to post your desired maximum group size in this item so we have a good sense of what the requirements are.
