Patch Manager uses the following components to manage security in the Patch Manager Administrator Console:

You can select and map your credentials to specific resources in the default credential ring during the initial setup. As you become more familiar with the product and expand your deployment, these security components are required to configure Patch Manager to function efficiently and securely. 

Patch Manager uses specific user credentials to manage security in the Patch Manager Web Console. See Web Console user accounts for details. 

The security management tasks described in this section are available regardless of the Microsoft product you are extending.

See Set Up Patch Manager with SCCM for details.
