Change Third-Party Software Update Catalog Sync Schedule to Daily in SCCM

In this video, we will review how to change the third-party software update catalogs automatic sync schedule from every seven days to everyone day.

In the SCCM docs, we can see the default value is every seven days https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/sum/deploy-use/third-party-software-updates#subscribe-to-a-third-party-catalog-and-sync-updates, and that isn’t currently configurable in the SCCM console as of build 1902. To change the sync schedule, we will need to change a schedule token on the SMS_Provider server in WMI.

Namespace = ROOT\SMS\site_$SiteCode:SMS_SiteControlItem
Query = SELECT * FROM SMS_SCI_Component WHERE FileType=2 AND ItemName=’SMS_ISVUPDATES_SYNCAGENT|SMS Software Update Point’ AND ItemType=’Component’ AND SiteCode=’$SiteCode
Schedule Token for Daily = 0002100000100008
