MC391866: Reminder: Significant changes coming to the Windows Diagnostic data processor configuration

We’re introducing a significant change for enterprise Windows devices that have diagnostic data turned on. We will stop using policies to configure this option and introduce an organization-wide configuration based on Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to determine Microsoft’s role in the data processing. This change will start with devices enrolled in the Dev Channel of the Windows Insider program no earlier than July 2022 and for supported versions of Windows 11 and Windows 10 no earlier than the last quarter of the calendar year 2022.

For details on these changes and how to enable the Windows diagnostic data processor configuration option, see Configure Windows diagnostic data in your organization documentation topic.

Currently, to enroll devices in the Window diagnostic data processor configuration option, IT admins can use policies, such as the “Allow commercial data pipeline” policy at the individual device level. To enable efficiencies and help us implement our plan to store and process EU Data in the EU, we’ll stop using policies, such as the “Allow commercial data pipeline” policy, to configure the processor option. Instead, we’ll be introducing an organization-wide configuration based on Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to determine Microsoft’s role in the data processing.

We’re making this change to help ensure the diagnostic data for all devices in an organization is processed in a consistent way, and in the same geographic region.

When will this happen

This change will roll out initially to Windows devices enrolled in the Dev Channel of the Windows Insider program no earlier than July 2022. For other Windows devices (not in de Dev Channel), additional details on supported versions of Windows 11 and Windows 10 will be announced later. These changes will roll out no earlier than the last quarter of the calendar year 2022.
