Deadlines for updates via WSUS create a method of enforcing an update so a customer cannot postpone an update indefinitely.


All Patch Manager versions


Setting a deadline for a package happens during the approval process.

From the Patch Console:

  1. Expand Enterprise > Update Services > <WSUS Server> > Updates.
  2. Select the appropriate update filter, such as Third Party Updates.
  3. Right click on the update and select Approve.
  4. Select the group that you would like to approve the update for.
  5. Approve the update.
  6. In the menu, select Deadline and select the desired Deadline.
  7. Select OK.
  8. Follow the wizard to click OK and exit the prompt once success is returned.
