I am currently set to using Third Party Software Updates + OS Updates.
In order to patch existing 3rd party software do I actually need to have a 3rd-Party Software Profile assigned or not?
3rd-Party Software Support has been enabled.
Also interested in this. We have a case open on this topic and are not getting (what feels like) a clear answer.
We see no vulnerabilities reported when using the Third Party Software Updates + OS Updates, though a manual check shows outdated third party apps (Chrome, Firefox....). Applying a 3rd-Party Software Profile makes no difference to us in terms of vulnerability visibility.
Kaseya are indicating that the items must be deployed via 3rd-Party Software Profile in order to patch. This makes no sense, as there are items listed as "Patchable" by software management, but not "Deployable".
The correct behavior of Third Party Software Updates + OS Updates is to allow Native Windows Management option along with Software Management's Third Party feature.
We discovered an issue where when utilizing this patch strategy, it does not publish the third party application vulnerabilities present on the endpoint.
This is being worked on starting next week.
Thanks Oscar, I appreciate the transparency you have provided. I'll check with my team, but I don't think we were getting a clear answer through the support channel.
I have also got some mixed messages about how Third Party Updates + OS Updates work from Support as well so it is good to have some clarity.
Once working I do think this is the most simplified way of handling updates of this nature.
