MC394781: Plan for Change: Significant changes comes to the Windows Diagnostic data processor configuration

Updated October 27, 2022: We have updated the timing details below. Thank you for your patience.

As Microsoft shared through Windows message center MC391866, to enable efficiencies and help us implement our plan to store and process EU Data for European enterprise customers in the EU, we will be introducing a significant change for enterprise Windows devices that have diagnostic data turned on.

MC394781: Plan for Change: Significant changes comes to the Windows Diagnostic data processor configuration

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.

When will this happen

This change will roll out initially to Windows devices enrolled in the Dev Channel of the Windows Insider program starting in build 25169. For other Windows devices (not in the Dev Channel), the change will roll out (expected) with the January 2023 release preview cumulative update for Windows 10 versions 20H2, 21H2 and 22H2, and Windows 11 versions 21H2 and 22H2.
