Patch ratings help administrators prioritize the patch update process. For example, OpsRamp uses the following severity rating levels:

  • Critical impact
  • Important impact
  • Moderate impact
  • Low impact

OpsRamp automatically approves a whitelisted patch and eliminates the effort of approving the same patch for different devices. After whitelisting a patch, the patch is ready for installation.

Auto approval is available only for critical and security category patches.

You can rate a patch from the Setup > Integration page. Using patch rating, enter the following rating:

  • Whitelist
  • Blacklist
  1. Select a client from the All Clients list.

  2. Go to Integrations > Integrations> Installed Integrations.

  3. From Installed Integrations, go to Patch > Windows Patch Feed and click your Integration Name. You can also rate a patch from Linux Patch Feed.

  4. From the patch feed integration screen, go to Available Patches > Patch rating column and select any Patch Name.

  5. Click Edit icon.

  6. From Patch Rating window, enter:

    • Rating
    • CVE
    • Comments
  7. Click Submit Rating. The Patch Rating column displays the selected rating.

After rating a patch, the Missing Patches screen displays the patch rating for all patches based on By Patch.
