Detailed changes which take place when Software Updates have been revised by the vendor within the Patch Management Solution.
When the Vendor (e.g. Microsoft, Adobe etc.) revises an update; the distribution points and code base for the package will be changed.
Review the descriptions of the following settings to manage this within Patch Management:
1. Automatically revise Software Update policies after importing patch data:
2. Enable distribution of newly added Software Updates:
3. Disable all superseded Software Updates:
Informational: Once enabled; these processes only affect the Software Update Policies moving forward. This process is not retroactive and will not enable the advertisements for revised Software Updates prior to this setting being enabled.
Advisory: An enhancement request has been submitted to review the naming convention of this process, for the wording '...newly added...' tends to promote the idea that the current month's released updates will be distributed.
