Viewing available and installed patches for Windows devices

Follow

Miradore Online automatically maintains a list of patches and updates available for Microsoft Windows and third-party software. Using that list, Miradore Online scans the patching status of all Windows devices enrolled to your Miradore Online.

This article describes where you can find the listing of available patches and see the patching status of your Windows devices.

 

List of available patches and patch details

All patches and software updates supported by Miradore Online are listed on the Management > Patches > Patches page. Notice that, by default, the page shows only patches which are applicable to some of your devices. You can remove the filter from the Applicable devices column if you want to see also patches which are not applicable to your currently managed Windows devices.

More detailed information about each patch is available at the Patch page which can be opened by double-clicking on the patch title or by clicking the arrow icon at the rightmost end of the row.

On the patch page, there is a link (in the Bulletin ID field) to an external web page which provides more detailed information about the patch. The Related products table, on the other hand, shows products which products the patch applies. You can use the Show only detected products check box to filter the table contents so that it only shows the products that Miradore Online has detected from your managed Windows devices.

Installations per device widget shows the applicability and installation status of the patch in your environment.
