    Question regarding Patch Management

    Apprentice

      Under Security and Compliance, Patch and Compliance, All Types, Detected; Do the detected items "clear out" after they are remediated on every device? If not, is it a good idea to delete everything in there to refresh and see what is currently detected?

          They will remove themselves from that folder once they are cleared off of all systems.... there is a column called "detected", if you sort by that, you should NOT see any with Zero.

           

          If you do, you might need to run the Gather Historical Data tool, but even without, it will self clear in time.

           

           

          Do NOT delete patch content from here, if you do, you are deleting it from your core!  If a system came online and needed that patch after you deleted it, it would not detect, or remediate.  (It would re-download when you download content)
