Create a third party updates view

You can use Patch Manager to publish, manage, and deploy third party updates from the Patch Manager server. Create a third party updates view in the Patch Manager Administrator Console to separate these types of updates from the Microsoft updates you normally see in your WSUS console.

  4. In the Step 2 panel, define the properties.

    1. Select any update source.
