Predefined Patch Scan Templates

Security Patch Scan and All Patches are the predefined patch scanning templates provided with Security Controls. The predefined templates cannot be modified. Both predefined templates do the following:

  • Perform patch scans
  • Use data from the data definition file
  • Report on all installed and missing patches

The primary differences between the templates are:

  • Security Patch Scan: Scans for missing and installed security patches. This is the default scan template.
  • All Patches: Scans for missing and installed security patches and non-security patches.

If the predefined templates are not adequate for your needs, you can create a new scan template.
