Approve software patches for applications

Approve patches for third-party software from the Direct Support tools. If a third-party software requires a patch install that may be causing issues, you can approve and install the patch right away.

This is only available for applications that have available software patches. If a patch is required, a yellow warning icon appears in the Patch Required column. Click the icon for information about the required patch.
