KES - Disable scanning for 3rd party updates [In progress]

Recommended Posts

Running KES (MR3) and KSC 10.3.407


We use the WSUS feature (for security and critical Windows updates) but the "scan for vulnerabilities" task seems to also be scanning for 3rd party software updates and loading it all into the Software Updates.

We don't want updates for Adobe products, VLC, Java, etc. Is there any way to disable only the updates for 3rd party software?


Also, if we decided later we want to use this for just specific programs (like Java, for example) is there a way to get that granular?

Yes, you can select for what applications updates will be installed at Install required updates and fix vulnerabilities task by creating a rule for 3rd party applications.


Thank you!
