Define Patch Filters

• The Patch Information Bundle contains information for all recommended patches for all products • If the Patch Wizard were to compare patches in the Applied Patches database against all metadata in this file, the number of recommended patches in the report would be large, and the results might not be useful • To avoid this, Patch Wizards provides filters so that only those patch types and products in the metadata that apply to your system are included in the comparison

Define Patch Filters

• There are three pre-seeded filters:
– New Codelevels – Recommended Patches – Recommended Patches and New Codelevels

• Patch Wizard creates these three filters by choosing only the high-priority patches that apply to the set of products you have licensed on your system
