Automatically Approving Microsoft Patches for an Approval Group

  • Last updated on

To minimize the time it takes to manage Microsoft patches, you can automatically approve Microsoft patches for an approval group. For example, if you want to automatically approve all Microsoft patches for Workstations so that those devices are always up-to-date with the latest updates, you can set up automatic approval for a Workstation approval group. You could also set up that all computers receive all critical and security updates.

Microsoft patches that have an End-User License Agreement (EULA) that must be accepted cannot be automatically approved.

To set up automatic approval for Microsoft patches for an approval group

  1. In Service Center, click Patch Management > Settings > Automatic Approval.
  2. Click Add.
  3. From the Approval Group list, select the Approval Group for which you want to create an approval rule.
  4. Select the check boxes for each classification you want to automatically approve and then click Save.
  5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 for each approval group to which you want to create an approval rule.
To apply a new approval rule to existing Microsoft patches

When you create an approval rule, you can apply it to Microsoft patches that have already been downloaded to a device.

  1. In Service Center, click Patch Management > Settings > Automatic Approval.
  2. Select the check box beside the approval rule that you want to apply to existing patches.
  3. From the More Actions list, select Run Patch Approval Rules on Existing Patches.
