I am on build 1703 (15063.674) and i want to upgrade it to 1803. Skipping version 1709.
Can this be done, or do I have to follow 1703 > 1709 > 1803 > 1809 path.

Thanks

You can download the .ISO version you want and upgrade from there.  After the upgrade, delete windows.old to save you some spaces.

If an individual machine and the ISO is not LTSB, then the install process will go to the newest version.

U can upgrade directly.

but keep in mind you might loose couple settings.
for now I found desktop background in not getting copied over, but the IE favorites, startmenu, taskbar Layout, data is good.

We image our machines using a reference image in MDT then transfer the .wim over the SCCM, and then inject drivers from there, the upgrade process will be done through SCCM task sequence

This should still allow you to skip versions to the newest version.  Windows Update will update drivers for the machine at hand.
