I am currently using Patch Management and am keen on switching back to Software Management.

Looking at the options, I think Third Party SW updates + OS Updates would be a safer bet.

From what I can see, selecting this option applies some local group policy settings in relation to Windows Updates.

Essentially returning control back to native windows.

When used in this mode, what visibility if any, will remain when viewing the Patch History? In other words, will this just relate to third party updates only?

Scan and Analysis profile - Required for OS Updates. I see that.

Deployment Profile - Is this required ONLY for Third Party Support?

Has anyone encountered any issues when using this mode?

Has anyone come across any issues when switching to this mode?
