Generating Patches Report

You can generate and download detailed patch data or reports for Windows, Linux, and Mac. Note that you must have a trial or full Patch Management license to generate and download this data.

You can also view the list of reports generated and their statuses. After you download the patch data or report, you can import it to a preferred analytic tool, such as Tableau.
For example, you can analyze the data and calculate the compliance ratio to make sound decisions or use the patch data to identify missed patches based on the severity of the critical assets.

You can now overlay the Patch data with other business data to set a new context for analysis. Downloading allows you to integrate data from different systems and view it on a single pane of glass.

Important to Know!

 - The report file size is limited to 1 GB after the data is compressed.

 -  Any references to data or time in the report should be considered in the UTC timestamps.
