Patch Manager - How do you decide which updates to approve?


Recommended Posts

Hello all, Just asking if which patches in Microsoft do we normally needs to be approved in Connectwise - Patch Manager.

What are the decisions to consider when approving or do we just simply select all to the new updates released every patch Tuesday. 

Thanks in advance!

We have an Approval policy to approve Security, Critical, and Definition updates, and a second Approval policy to ignore all others.

If people want to install other updates, they can do so manually, but we don't roll them out automatically.

We approve Security, Office (since Office security updates are not classified as Security) and Definition updates in the default policy. We have a ticket template to review the rest the last week of the month; if nothing legitimate comes up from a Google or Reddit search for issues with that KB, it typically gets approved.
