I tried to find the definitions and ended up here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/update/update-compliance-security-update-status but I'm unable to find a list of terminology.

Deployment: Unknown, In Progress, Progress Stalled, Failed, Update Completed, Completed, Deferred and Canceled.

Detailed: Download started, Download succeeded, Download hand off, Install hand off, Reboot pending, Service Stack Downloaded, Update offered, Update detected.

Does anyone know, please?

  • Update completed and completed ? Where did you see this ? That is a very odd way of defining update status. We call a machine either compliant or non- compliant, patched, un-patched orreboot pending. We call an update installed, not installed or failed – pun Oct 9 '18 at 11:14
  • @pun it comes from the field 'deployment status' from azure security update status – Darth Vagrant Oct 9 '18 at 11:44

I've found this link:


for most of the states.
