Important SCEP MAPS (SpyNet) URI changes

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configmgrteam/2016/05/31/important-changes-to-microsoft-active-protection-service-maps-endpoint/

 

A service endpoint name change for the MAPS (aka Spynet) service will be rolled out over the next two months, with a complete switch planned by July 30 2016.

The change is automatically configured by the product via normal definition updates, there is no need for the user or administrator to take any direct action in the product.

 

The new endpoint URI domain begins with “https://wdcp.microsoft.com”, so any filtering by domain name that omits this from an allow list will break connectivity to MAPS.

 

Breaking connectivity to MAPS can result in loss of protection delivered by our real-time signature delivery service that uses this channel.
