Getting Started with Ivanti Patch for Configuration Manager

Welcome to Ivanti Patch for Configuration Manager version 2024.2, a plug-in that extends Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager's capabilities by enabling you to publish third-party updates and legacy products no longer supported by Configuration Manager. With Patch for Configuration Manager, you leverage a single workflow for publishing updates for both Microsoft and non-Microsoft products.

Patch for Configuration Manager consists of three components:

  • Update catalog: The Ivanti catalog contains the detection and deployment logic used to patch non-Microsoft products and legacy Microsoft products. The catalog consists of a large number of update files from a number of different software vendors including Adobe, Apple, Firefox, Sun, and others. Support for additional catalogs is also provided.
  • Applications catalog: Contains the third-party applications that are available for deployment to your endpoints.
  • Plug-in to the Configuration Manager console: Used to select updates from the Update catalog, publish them to your WSUS servers, synchronize updates with Configuration Manager, and to expire published updates. This allows you to patch your legacy Microsoft products and your non-Microsoft products using the same Configuration Manager workflow used to patch Microsoft products.
