Deployment Enforcement after grace period expires
We have discovered an issue with the current grace period feature (and got this bug confirmed with a case) not enforcing the deployment after expiration (Software Updates & Application).
This results in multiple things:
- the selected duration of the grace period is irrelevant for the deployment enforcement
- as long as the client is only online during configured business hours an enforcement never occurs (so the documented "...reverts to normal behavior for overdue deployments." does not occur)
As a result an enforcement is not assured and renders this feature unusable if you have the requirement to enforce e.g. software update installation.
We would really love to see this feature working as expected (and documented) to "empower our users" without loosing control over security related updates.
