Patch Manager uses the following components to manage security in the Patch Manager administration console.

ConfigMgrNote: The security management tasks discussed in this chapter are available regardless of the Microsoft product you are extending. Although you cannot perform these functions from within the ConfigMgr console, all of the Patch Manager functionality is available in the stand-alone MMC-based console.

You specify credentials and map them to specific resources in the Default credential ring during the initial setup. As you become more familiar with the product and expand its scope in your environment, all four of these security components become necessary to configure Patch Manager to function efficiently and securely.

Additionally, Patch Manager uses specific user credentials to manage security in the Patch Manager web console. For additional information, see "Web Console User Accounts".
