Basic and Intune Essentials Subscription

We offer a Basic subscription for those that want to publish third-party software updates from Microsoft’s System Center Updates Publisher using our catalog into their Configuration Manager environment.

We also offer an Intune Essentials subscription for those that do not intend to use some of the more advanced functionality found in our other product SKU’s.

Overview of the Intune Essentials Subscription

The Intune Essentials subscription is for integration with Microsoft Intune only.

This subscription is our most cost-effective offering for Intune-only customers. However, you will be missing some advanced features and customization options compared to Enterprise Plus, which is only $0.25 extra per device per year.

The above Features by plan table illustrates our current subscription types and compares them with the Intune Essentials subscription.

Overview of the Basic Subscription

The Basic subscription is for integration with Microsoft’s System Center Updates Publisher (SCUP) and Configuration Manager.

By publishing third party updates from SCUP into Configuration Manager, you will be able to deploy third party software updates.

Our Basic subscription is our most cost-effectice offering however you will be sacrificing many features, customisation options, and automation opportunities compared to other subscriptions types which leverage our Publisher.

Installation for Basic Subscription

For guidance on how to install, configure, and publish with SCUP in your environment, please refer to our documentation.

Requirements and Limitations of the Basic Subscription

  • To leverage our third-party updates catalogue, you will need to have Microsoft’s System Center Updates Publisher, and Configuration Manager installed.
  • The Basic subscription does not provide automated publishing of third party software updates or applications.
  • SCUP’s configuration lives per-user in AppData.
  • SCUP can not create Applications in Configuration Manager, only software updates.
  • The Basic subscription can not create third party apps or updates in Intune.
  • You will have to manually maintain expired updates in your environment.
  • You can not customize updates using SCUP.
  • You can not publish unsigned third party binary installers.
  • You will not receive some essential Patch My PC recommended pre or post scripts for successful installation.
  • It is not possible to re-sign existing third-party updates in WSUS with SCUP.
