The purpose of this document is to show how to modify search filters for Security Patches, Non-Security Patch, Software Distributions, Security Tools, and Service Packs for View > Patches in Shavlik Protect / Ivanti Patch for Windows Servers (PWS).
View All Patches, Software Distributions, or Security Tools:
- If you are looking for newly released Security Patches, Non-Security Patch, Software Distributions, Security Tools, and Service Packs, you will want to ensure you are on the most recent data definitions. You can do this by going to Help > About in your Protect console and comparing the Windows patch definitions version to the version shown in the lower section of your console home screen or at https://protect7.shavlik.com/.
- Click Help > Refresh files if your definitions are out of date.
- If you are looking for older Security Patches, Non-Security Patch, Software Distributions, Security Tools, and Service Packs, make sure that you have the All Patches Smart Filter selected in the View > Patches window.
- If you are unable to see security tools, software distributions, or a certain category of patches, check the filtering in the Patch type and Vendors and Families panes. Putting a check next to a category will enable that category to be seen in View > Patches. If everything is checked or everything unchecked, there will be no filtration of that type applied.
View All Service Packs:
In order to view Service Packs in View > Patches you will need to check the option Show service packs in View > Patches in Tools > Options > Display and save the settings.
