  1. Log in to Patch Manager Console
  2. Expand Enterprise > Update Service > WSUS Server
  3. Right click on Updates
  4. Click on New Update View
  5. Under Step 1: Select Properties, select the last checkbox Updates are from MS update, Third Parties, or both
  6. Under Step 2: Edit the properties, Click Any update Source in blue and select MS update only
  7. Under Step 3: Specify the update view name and description, enter a name for the view, such as MS updates only, and then click OK.

A new view is now created under the node WSUS server > Updates.
