Patch Status Report (Report Manager) and Patch v2

Patch v2 does not fail when an approved patch is waiting for an installation window because there are no actions to take in this condition.

 

The Patch Status report in Report Manager does not reflect this information.

 

The report should either reflect the fact that the patch is pending install (possibly by displaying the next install maintenance window date) or be configurable to not display patches that are approved and have an install maintenance window date.

 

Not having this information in the report could lead to difficult conversations with customers who only see that patches are not applied, where, if instead, the scheduled install date were provided, the conversation could then be directed to how often patches are applied (with the number of pending patches making the point).
