Patch for SCCM
The Catalogs tab allows you to select which update catalogs should be used by the program. The Ivanti catalog, which is the primary catalog, will always be available. Catalogs from other vendors may also be provided by Ivanti and appear in this list. You can also add your own custom catalogs.
The settings on this tab are user settings, meaning they are uniquely configured for each user. For more information, see the Shared Settings Tab.
The Ivanti catalog does not need to be imported. To import a different catalog, select the name in the top pane and then click Import/Update Data. The catalog will not be displayed within the program until you mark the catalog as active.
Any active catalogs that are provided by Ivanti will be automatically updated when new versions become available. Custom catalogs (those that you provide) are not automatically updated. To retrieve updates for a custom catalog, select it and then click Import/Update Data.
•Import / Update Data: Select a catalog and then click this button to import the latest version of the catalog. The catalog will be downloaded from the URL shown in the middle pane. The catalog will be saved to the current user's Patch for SCCM directory. When the import is complete the Status column will show Up to date. The catalog will not be shown in the user interface until you enable the Active check box.
•Delete Imported Data: Deletes all data for the selected catalog. If you delete the imported data, you will need to re-import the data before publishing additional updates from this catalog.
You cannot delete data for the Ivanti catalog.
•Add: Use this button to add a new third-party catalog to the list in the top pane. In the User Updates Catalog dialog, you must provide a valid URL or URI path to the catalog file (usually a .cab or .zip file) as well as a name and a description for the catalog.
If desired, you can use the optional Custom data URL (Advanced) box to associate a custom data file with the third-party catalog. You must provide a valid URL or UNC path to the custom file (for example: http://yourcompany.com/custom.xml or https://yourcompany.com/custom.cab). This file must be an XML file that may or may not be contained within a CAB file. The XML file will be automatically imported when you import the third-party catalog. The XML file contains custom data that is presented in the Notes column within the grid. The Notes column is hidden by default so you may need to use the Column Chooser to make it visible.
•Edit: Enables you to edit the URL, name and description of the selected catalog. You can only edit those custom catalogs that you have added; catalogs defined in the product manifest cannot be edited.
•Remove: Removes the selected catalog from the list in the top pane. You can only remove those custom catalogs that you have added; catalogs provided by Ivanti cannot be removed, but they can be deactivated and the data files can be deleted using Delete Imported Data.
Prompt me when metadata revisions are available: If new metadata becomes available for updates that you have previously published, a dialog will be displayed that provides you with the option to either immediately revise the updates in WSUS or ignore the new metadata.
Patch for SCCM will look for metadata revisions whenever a new copy of the catalog is downloaded. The recommended course of action in most cases is to publish the revisions.
If you enable the Remember my choice and do not prompt again check box and then click Yes, the metadata option on the Account tab will change to Update WSUS metadata without prompting me.
If you enable the Remember my choice and do not prompt again check box and then click No, the metadata option on the Account tab will change to Do not prompt me and do not update WSUS.
•Update WSUS metadata without prompting me: Automatically updates your published updates with the revised metadata without notifying you.
•Do not prompt me and do not update WSUS: No action is taken when revised metadata is available. You can use the *Revised metadata filter to determine when metadata revisions are available.
