Patch for Windows, powered by Shavlik

Navigating the Interface

The Ivanti Patch for Windows interface is designed to be simple yet powerful, enabling you to perform any number of activities quickly and easily. An annotated interface is shown here. For information about each area of the interface, see the table that follows.



The menu bar provides quick access to many of the functions of the program.




The navigation pane displays whatever primary feature is currently selected. There can be only one feature active at a time. In this example the Machine Groups feature is the active feature.

You can collapse the navigation pane by clicking the icon. This maximizes the size of the right-hand pane.


This area is used to select the machine group(s) you want to perform an operation on.


This area enables you to quickly configure and initiate patch, asset, power and ITScripts operations.



The date that the patch content was last updated is displayed in the upper-right corner of the home page. This is a configurable item and can be disabled using the Tools > Options > Display > Show patch content release date check box.

If you click the date, the Patch Content Update Details dialog is displayed. Use this dialog to view more detailed information about the current patch data and about previous patch data releases. This newsfeed will also be used to display important security-related news and messages from Ivanti.
