Patch ratings help administrators prioritize the patch update process using the following severity rating levels:
- Critical impact
- Important impact
- Moderate impact
- Low impact
A whitelisted patch is automatically approved, eliminating the need to approve 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.
