Patch ratings help administrators prioritize the patch update process. For example, OpsRamp uses the following severity rating levels:

  • Critical impact
  • Important impact
  • Moderate impact
  • Low impact

OpsRamp automatically approves a whitelisted patch and eliminates the effort of approving the same patch for different devices. After whitelisting a patch, the patch is ready for installation.

You can rate a patch from the Setup > Integration page. Using patch rating, provide the following rating:

  • Whitelist
  • Blacklist
