You can enter the name, bulletin ID, vendor name, severity, and software name for any software that you want or do not want Software Updater to update automatically.

Inclusion and exclusion are based on the update installation status reported by managed hosts. For inclusion, updates are checked based on their severity and depending on what is selected in Install security updates automatically. Then, all updates except for the excluded ones are installed.

When a host starts installing missing updates, it checks for any excluded updates and reports that they were not installed due to exclusion by the administrator. This also means that excluded updates do not immediately disappear from the list on the Software updates tab, because the hosts only report the installation status once they attempt to install the missing update.

To include or exclude software updates:

  1. Select Profiles and then the profile that you want to edit.

    Note: You can only edit a profile on the level that it has been created.

  2. Select Software updater.

      2. In the Rule column, from the drop-down menu, select one of the conditions and enter the details for the update that you want to include or exclude.
