    Agreed! SCUP works, but the lack of vendor catalogs makes it far too difficult. Microsoft should just include every available catalog! Until then, we'll use an outside vendor for 3rd party patching.

    Posted this again originally, but this is probably the correct "idea" for it.

    Ideally, I'd like to see functionality that allows to you add 3rd-party catalogue URLs in the ConfigMgr console and then, before it triggers the usual scheduled WSUS sync with MS Update, it first syncs any third party catalogues and pushes the data into WSUS.

    You can then use ADRs to create deployments of 3rd-party software exactly as you do with MS software.

    This would be a great feature, currently only Adobe and Dell really have easy catalogs to import into SCUP. Currently we have to download and manually build our own deployments and deploy.
