Action1 5 Documentation 5 Roll Out and Deploy Updates

Roll Out and Deploy Updates


After reviewing pending updates, you can push them to multiple endpoints at once right from the Update Approval page. Select the patches you want to deploy and select Install Now. Action1 leverages a secure P2P file sharing technology that enables agents to download updates in small chunks and in parallel and reduce the load on your network resources.

Update Approval page with selected updates

Complete the Deploy Update wizard:

1. On the Deploy Update step, verify the updates you are about to deploy. You can search for more updates or opt0in to install all missing approved updates or just critical. To restart computers afterward, specify options such as a reboot notice and offset.

4. After clicking Finish, you’ll find yourself on the Actions / History page. Here you’ll see the execution details. If you opted not to schedule a delivery yet, you’ll find it waiting for you on the Actions / Scheduled page.

Consider creating a patch management policy to automatically deploy updates.
