Patch for SCCM
The following features were introduced in Patch for SCCM 2019.2.
With this feature you can:
•View a list of all your managed client machines
•View a list of all the software products installed on your client machines
•View a list of the most current updates that are available for all of the software contained on your client machines
•Use the list of updates to create a custom composite Smart Filter that contains those updates
•Use the Smart Filter in your publication processes
For more information, see Recommended Updates.
A calendar is provided that shows the names, dates and times of all scheduled deployments and auto-deployments.
For more information, see Viewing Scheduled Deployments.
Sideloading refers to the process of publishing updates that cannot be automatically downloaded. This feature provides information on how to locate each update, verifies its contents once it has been manually downloaded and saves each update to the local source folder using the proper directory structure.
For more information, see Sideloading Updates.
This feature provides a means of applying customization to updates in a supersedence chain by using a template. You create templates that provide a pre-installation script and/or a post-installation script. You can also provide a set of custom files that can be referenced in these scripts.
For more information, see What is an Update Template.
The multiple tabs have been removed and everything is now contained in one unified grid.
Enabling the Shared Settings feature now requires access to a SQL Server database. The database is used to store the shared setting data that is used by Patch for SCCM. Using a SQL Server database means that Patch for SCCM no longer requires Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).
The following features were introduced in Patch for SCCM 2019.1.
Support for Multiple Scheduled Tasks
You are now able to create multiple recurring scheduled tasks for each console. Previous versions limited the number of scheduled tasks to one per user on each console. Beginning with 2019.1, each user can now create multiple scheduled tasks on each console. In addition, scheduled tasks will be shared by all users who have selected to share settings.
High DPI Support
The dialogs within the product have been updated to support dynamic display scale factor (a.k.a. DPI). This allows the plug-in to automatically and properly scale for each display it is viewed on.
Windows Server 2019 Support
Windows Server 2019 (excluding Server Core and Nano Server) is now a supported operating system for the console machine.
