Access Patch Manager data in the Orion Web Console

The Orion Web Console includes the My Dashboards menu, which provides shortcuts to Patch Manager and Orion Web Console views. The default menu bars include Home and a menu bar for each installed Orion Platform product.

Patch Manager deployment

In a Patch Manager deployment, the Patch Manager Orion Web Console installer adds the Orion Web Console to the Patch Manager server, along with an integration module and supporting Orion services. The integration module adds the Patches option to the My Dashboards menu. When the installation is completed and you log in to the Orion Web Console, the My Downloads menu includes the Patches module with a link to the Patch Manager Summary page.

In a Patch Manager deployment, the Orion Web Console is also referred to as the Patch Manager Web Console.

Integrated Orion Platform deployment

In an integrated Orion Platform deployment, the Patch Manager Orion Web Console installer detects the current Orion Web Console on the Orion server and only installs the integration module and the supporting Orion services.

When the installation is completed and you log in to the Orion Web Console, the My Downloads drop-down menu includes the Patches module with your existing Orion Platform software modules.
