Will a mandatory assignment re-run if I change the program command line?

Say you completed a mandatory deployment of an application to your environment. Now you want to change the command line it runs without causing it to re-run on all computers. Can this be done?

Yes.

When the configmgr program ran on the PC it put a flag in the execution history that the package ID was successfully run on that PC. This execution history is based on the Package ID and the 'program name' that it ran. It is not based on the actual 'command line' it executed.

Changing the program command line for an existing package will not cause the program  to re-run on clients that have already successfully completed mandatory program.
