When I installed Office 365 on our Win10 gold image, I did it with automatic updates disabled per a recommendation I found. I would like to be able to have O365 security updates installed on the gold image but not other O365 updates. How would I go about doing that.
Can you rephrase I have no idea what your asking for.

you can do office updates as normal just turn on automatic updates, and before you set a snapshot turn off automatic updates. You just don't leave it on ebcause you don't want the clones to start auto upgrading.
If I turned on updates on the gold image, I wasn't sure if there was a way to only install security updates. I know on my PC O365 get installed automatically, but I don't get to pick which ones get installed.
You shouldn't do anything any the parent image with wsus or sccm, parent image management should either be scripted or manual. If you use sccm or wsus you run into issues where its enabled in the clones causing issues.
We use WSUS to apply the Windows patches only on the parent image. We turn off the Windows Update service prior to creating the clones. But apparently there isn't a way to download Office 365 security only updates into WSUS. At least not that I can find.
But can you limit to just security updates or do you get all the updates - new features et al?
Good question... that method runs a "full" update. I don't know how to only get security updates. I'm not even sure if that's possible, Microsoft has completely separated Office from Windows Update.
