Thank you for posting your concern. Whenever you download a patch for any of the supported vendors in our catalog, the download is coming directly from the vendor site/download location that they specified.
When specifically looking at Adobe patches, and more specifically Adobe Flash, these updates come from a single download URL. That means that every month when a new update is released, the previous version is no longer publicly downloadable. When this happens, we mark the previous patch with a Not downloadable flag. Because of that flag, it will no longer be able to be downloaded through Shavlik/Ivanti and would need to be obtained elsewhere if the patch is still needed. If you're able to find the updates, then you can use the documentation below to make the patch(es) available for deployment.
Now keep in mind, not all updates from Adobe and other vendors are like this. Most vendors will give their downloads a specific URL to download from and as long as they keep the update in the same location and not pull it, the update would be able to be downloaded through Shavlik/Ivanti.
As for the message about updates not being available unless downloaded outside of our product, the documentation below goes over that message and its meaning.
Hey Anthony, thanks a lot for the reply. Makes sense, that helps a lot.
