Deployment History

Deployment History provides a way to view the status of recent deployment operations to your devices. One of the biggest benefits of Deployment History is that it allows you to zero in on exceptions that may have occurred during patch deployments and quickly troubleshoot any issues. This is extremely important, as it enables you to quickly identify potential problems before they become major issues in your environment.

Deployment History is accessed from the main menu by selecting Patch Management > Deployment History.
