Introduction:

  • You can create a patch schedule by adding a procedure to a configuration profile. The procedure will automatically apply any available patches at the times you select.
  • This tutorial shows you how to create a patch schedule procedure

Step 1: Open ITSM and click ‘Configuration Templates’ > ‘Profiles’. Select the profile to which you want to add the patch procedure.

Step 2: Click the ‘Add Profile Section’ button at the top and select ‘Procedures’. If you have already added the ‘Procedures’ component then just click on it and proceed to step 3.

Step 3: Open the ‘Procedures’ tab and click ‘Add’:

Step 4: Start typing the name of a patch procedure in the search box. Comodo ITSM has the following, pre-defined, patch procedures to choose from:

  • Critical Patch Updates
  • Security Patch Updates
  • Patch Maintenance

Best practice – we advise you schedule ‘Critical Patch Updates’ and ‘Security Patch Updates’ to run daily, and ‘Patch Maintenance’ to run weekly.

After choosing your procedure, select the start date,shedule,shedule time and all the appropriate fields and finally click 'Add'.

Step 5:  Click 'Save' at the top-right. The patch procedure will automatically run on the devices to which the profile is applied.
