SCCM Support End Dates for Current Branch Versions

In this article, I will list the SCCM support end dates for all the current branch versions. I will also list the SCCM servicing support timeline details that include the release dates for ConfigMgr’s current branch versions, along with specifics about the baseline version.

The support end dates are important when you find out whether a specific version of SCCM is supported by Microsoft or not. To receive updates and fixes, you must upgrade to the most recent version of the current branch if your Configuration Manager version has passed the support end date.

So, what happens when a SCCM current branch version reaches the end of its support lifecycle? The answer is: Configuration Manager will not receive any updates, which puts your environment at greater risk. Therefore, you must always ensure the Configuration Manager is upgraded to the latest version.

Support for ConfigMgr Current Branch Versions

Microsoft plans to release updates for Configuration Manager current branch a few times per year. Typically, we see at least three current branch releases for SCCM CB per year. Whereas the Configuration Manager technical preview versions are released every month and every technical preview release is active for only 90 days. You can take a look at all the SCCM technical preview versions and release history.

It’s important to know that each SCCM current branch update version stays supported for 18 months after its date of general availability. Microsoft provides technical support for the entire period of support.

If you are running an older version of Configuration Manager, ensure that you check the supported upgrade paths for SCCM and upgrade to the relevant current branch version. Also, make sure you’re running the SQL Server versions that Configuration Manager supports.

Servicing Phases for SCCM Current Branch Versions

There are two distinct servicing phases that depend on the availability of the latest current branch version:

  • Security and Critical Updates servicing phase (Mainstream Support): With the latest current branch versions of Configuration Manager, you’ll receive both Security and Critical Updates. Typically, every current branch version of Configuration Manager will receive 4 months of security and critical updates.
  • Security Updates (Only) servicing phase (Extended Support): After the release of a new SCCM current branch version, Microsoft only supports security updates to older versions for the remainder of that version’s support lifecycle.

Note: The terms “SCCM mainstream support” and “SCCM extended support” are not used by Microsoft anymore. They have now been replaced by the servicing phases for Security and Critical updates and Security updates only for current branch versions.
