Configure auto-restart required notification for updates

Enable this policy to specify the method by which the auto-restart required notification is dismissed. When a restart is required to install updates, the auto-restart required notification is displayed. By default, the notification is automatically dismissed after 25 seconds.

If you disable or do not configure this policy, the default method will be used.
