Admin impact


As Microsoft shared through the M365 admin center in MC394781 and 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.
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 is releasing to Windows devices enrolled in the Dev Channel of the Windows Insider program the week of July 24, 2022. Any Windows build on or after 25169 will contain the changes. For other Windows devices (not in the Dev Channel), additional details on supported versions of Windows 11 and Windows 10 will be announced at a later date. These changes will roll out no earlier than the last quarter of the calendar year 2022.
