Action1 5 Documentation 5 Review and Approve Updates

Review and Approve Updates


Enforce patch management policies, identify missing updates and approve relevant patches, and orchestrate distribution to multiple managed endpoints at once with a robust patch management system designed by Action1. The tool streamlines the patch management process and ensures important Windows KBs won’t fall through the cracks. The stable updates typically appear in Action1 within two days after their release.

Tip: Make sure you connected your endpoints to Action1 Cloud. Check out the Managed Endpoints page to see your networked workstations and servers.

The Update Approval page

Identify Missing Updates

Navigate to the Update Approval page to get a complete list of pending updates. Besides Windows KBs, it includes patches and updates to other software installed on your managed endpoints. For each pending update, Action1 shows its severity, version, release date, vendor, as well as the number of outdated endpoints.

Expand the entry and select Show next to Endpoints to see the names of computers awaiting this update. You filter updates by severity and status to find important updates faster.

Approve Updates

 Whenever you review updates and decide on deployment, mark the updates Approved or Declined. The statuses help you distinguish updates and manage them more efficiently.
