Inventory tasks collect Microsoft® and third-party update status information from the WSUS servers and managed systems. This data is displayed in the Patch Manager Admin Console, Patch Manager Summary dashboard in the Orion Web Console (for Orion integrations), and reports.

You can run the following inventory tasks in Patch Manager:

  • WSUS inventory. Collects information about the WSUS server configuration (such as WSUS server statistics and basic computer inventory attributes). This inventory populates the WSUS reports.
