Patch Manager Getting Started Home

Last Updated: March 9, 2017

Patch Manager uses Inventory tasks to pull census data from the WSUS servers and managed systems. This data is displayed in the Patch Manager Administrator Console, Orion® Web Console (for Orion integrations), and your reports (such as a WSUS inventory report).

These reports are located in the Reporting menu.
