Use the Package Download Assistant to download third-party update files. Then use the Publishing Wizard to copy the installation file and update definition to the WSUS/SUP server.

To publish third-party updates without direct download URL:

  1. In the left pane of the ConfigMgr console, click Software Library.
  2. Expand 3rd Party Updates > Updates Overview, and then select All Updates.
  3. In the center pane, select the third-party update you want to publish.
  4. In the ribbon, click Publish.
  1. In the Patch Manager Publishing wizard window, check the box next to the third-party update you want to publish. Click Next.
  2. Download the source from the vendor website.
  1. Return to the Package Download Assistant window, and then click Import Source.
  2. Browse to the folder that contains the file you want to import, and then click Open.

Note: The file you select must match the update you selected in Step 3. The Package Download Assistant provides the correct filename by default, so you do not need to select the file after you browse to the appropriate folder.

  1. Click OK.
  2. Back in the Patch Manager Publishing Wizard window, select the package you want to publish, and click Next.
  3. Click Finish. The package is now published in your SUP server.

After publishing third-party updates, you need to verify that updates are synchronized locally. For additional information, see "Verifying SUP is Configured to Synchronize Locally Published Updates ".
