Advanced Software Management: Patching a Single Application or Applications from a Single Vendor

If you want to use Advanced Software Management to install all the patches for a specific application, or all the applications for a specific vendor, follow the procedures below.

NOTE: Following this procedure results in a one-time install. Automatic software approval can only be set up according to patch severity, not vendor or application.

Advanced Software Management must be enabled for you to patch third-party applications. To purchase an Advanced Software Management license, contact your Barracuda sales representative.
