Auto-detection of patches


Auto-detection of third-party applications

Patch Connect Plus, our add-on for SCCM, offers an Auto-detect Applications feature, which automatically publishes patches for newly added applications in the network in SCCM. It fetches the complete list of applications that are installed on client machines and notifies you when a new application is detected.

 Patch Connect Plus has an extensive catalog for third-party patches, with support for over 330 applications. The Auto-detect Applications feature gives you:

  1. Visibility over the updates that are applicable to the network using the Installed applications view.
  2. Notifications whenever a new application is added.

Scenario 1

I'm confused about the applications that are installed on my organization's systems. I have a whole bunch of applications under the Select Applications tab. 

Solution: First navigate to  the 'Third Party Updates' Tab, then 'SCCM'. This page displays all the available updates for SCCM. Here you will be able to display or view patches based on whether the application is installed on the network, using the filter tool tip as shown below.

Scenario 2

Whenever a new application gets detected, I want it to be published automatically. I don't want to search for the application manually.

Solution:There is an option under Publish Settings that automatically publishes new applications when they're detected.
