3rd Party Patching - SCUP Integration with SCCM Console

Integrate the SCUP tool on to SCCM Admin Console. This will give a single pane of glass view for all patching activities (including importing 3rd party patches).

        To install SCUP on Server 2016 just run the SCUP msi installer from an elevated command prompt and use /qb. This will skip the prerequisite check issue caused by the version being 10.x on Server 2016.

        Any update SCUP will be officially supported with Server 2016 or if it will be integrated to SCCM Console? This is a huge roadblock even with the registry hack.

        Today a customer inquired about using SCUP 2011 for 3rd party updates with Current Branch 1610 but was concerned about its support since there is a 5-6 yr gap between the latest CB version and SCUP 2011. The customer asked whether future CB versions would have SCUP integrated into the ConfigMgr console. It kind of court me off guard because I had no answer for the question. This SCUP topic is starting to come up more often - not sure how we should handle these customer inquiries?

        From what I can see from the comments the last time MS replied to anyone on this item was December 2015! It is about time we have an update on this idea.

        SCUP 2011??? It's really time to do something. A surprise, if i can see the integration to SCCM as soon as possible.

        Long-time SCCM and SCUP enterprise customer of MSFT. We need this as we're losing valuable time in SCUP trying to manage third party updates for over 80+ third party apps. Hopeful something can be done before we leave MSFT in search of a better product.

        SCUP is extremely bad. It is not usable in multi user envireonments, you need aditional certificates, the patches are stored on WSUS, you can't integrate them in SCCM using standard proxy settings... I know you can do it better.

        I have quite a few clients asking me about third party software management. I'm hoping we will see an update on this soon, as currently I have to direct them to a third party plug-in to meet their needs.

        I use the PatchMyPC.com catalog for SCUP and it works really well for us. This is not an advertisment. We really do use it.

        Given the amount of interest and votes, this should have come out for 1606. This really would be a great feature to have.

        I agree with Josh (re: new user intimidation). SCUP could use some TLC as well as being integrated into the ConfigMgr base product. The mess with a cert and the weird way you have to browse and then click "create" to make it work is odd. But the UI itself needs a few updates for 2016
