Deployment Customization

Patching applications is not just deployment of patches, it also involves tasks like uninstalling the older updates, ensuring that the application update will not cause any impact at the users end, disabling automatic updates and a lot more. It will be a great time saver if these tasks can be automated. Deployment customization in Patch Connect Plus allows administrators to automate these tasks to tailor their deployment needs. You can enable these tasks by creating Deployment templates and by mapping them with the third party application to customize deployment. Based on the tasks defined in the templates, deployment will take place on the client computers.
