Common Patch Manager reports

Patch Manager uses Inventory tasks to pull census data from the WSUS servers and managed systems. This data is displayed in the Patch Manager Administrator Console, Orion Web Console (for Orion integrations), and your reports (such as a WSUS inventory report).

These reports are located in the Reporting menu.

Patch Manager includes several configuration management reports that provide details about the software installed on your managed computers. For example, you can generate a third party software report that lists the third party software products installed on each managed computer.
