Creating a Linux Patch Scan Configuration

A Linux patch scan configuration defines how a patch scan will be performed. Security Controls provides two predefined configurations.

All Patches: Specifies that the agent will scan for all patch types. A patch group will not be used.

Security Patches: Specifies that the agent will scan for only security patches. The agent will not scan for bug fixes or enhancements, and a patch group will not be used.

You cannot edit the predefined configurations. If the predefined configurations are not adequate for your needs, you can create a custom configuration.

Try it yourself

1.Click New > Linux Patch > Patch Scan Configuration.

2.In the Name box, type Sample Linux Patch Scan Config.

3.On the Filtering tab, enable the Scan by patch group check box and then select the Sample Linux Patch Group that you created earlier.

4.Click Save.

Your next step

Create a Linux patch deployment configuration.
