    Software Update Deployment schedule only has “StartTime” and “EnforcementDeadline”, it doesn't support recurring schedule.

    Do you mean following DCR?

    Need a convenient (smart) way to calculate the "StarTime" other than using a fixed offset - "X hours/days later".

    For example: in ADR definition, we add custom schedule, say: "Second Friday, 12:00 AM" (this means "the month when ADR run", not every month)
    then when ADR run, we will use "Second Friday, 12:00 AM" to calculate "StartTime" for "this month", and set SUM deployment "StartTime", right?

    Ken,

    Thank you for the reply.
    "Personally I would like to be able to configure an ADR or SUG deployment to be able to be targeted on the Second Tuesday of the month Plus X number of days.
    Like Tuesday plus 5 days, being the next Sunday (that may be second or third Sunday)."

    For what you want, I think it is already there.
    In the ADR, there is “Evaluation Schedule” which is a recurring schedule, it means you can configure the ADR to run on every Patch Tuesday.
    Then in this ADR, the deployment schedule setting is “X Days later”, that means in every ADR run, the “StartTime” will be “ADR run time” + X days.

    Thanks
    Zhonggang

    Can you explain exactly what you are asking, the purpose, and the scenario?
    Why I ask this is because Software Update Deployment schedule doesn't support recurring schedule.
