Configure your network
Windows Autopatch is a cloud service. There's a set of endpoints that Windows Autopatch services must be able to reach for the various aspects of the Windows Autopatch service.
You can optimize their network by sending all trusted Microsoft 365 network requests directly through their firewall or proxy to bypass authentication, and all additional packet-level inspection or processing. This process reduces latency and your perimeter capacity requirements.
The proxy or firewall must support TLS 1.2. Otherwise, you might have to disable protocol detection.
Required Windows Autopatch endpoints for proxy and firewall rules
The following URLs must be on the allowed list of your proxy and firewall so that Windows Autopatch devices can communicate with Microsoft services.
The Windows Autopatch URL is used for anything our service runs on the customer API. You must ensure this URL is always accessible on your corporate network.

Delivery Optimization is a peer-to-peer distribution technology available in Windows 10 and Windows 11 that allows devices to share content, such as updates, that the devices downloaded from Microsoft over the internet. Delivery Optimization can help reduce network bandwidth because the device can get portions of the update from another device on the same local network instead of having to download the update completely from Microsoft.
Windows Autopatch supports and recommends you configure and validate Delivery Optimization when you enroll into the Window Autopatch service. For more information, see What is Delivery Optimization?
