Thanks for all the help. I guess here my blocker is identifying the creation of the Deployment Package. When creating the ADR and creating a new Deployment package am I pointing the package source to the "WSUS Content" folder?
First and foremost I want to say thanks to Justin and Wes. I have received great support from both of them last week and they were quick and very knowledgeable.

I am taking over my companies 3rd party patch management as we are moving away from a vendor and handling it in house. My company has purchased PatchMyPC and has mostly set it up.

I've re-ran the publisher tool as I went through the documentation on setting  it up just so I can get the hang of it. I've had the publisher service connect and view our sites database and have selected all applications we are currently using and set up the custom options for each/all applications we are wanting PatchMyPC to update for us. I then ran the publisher sync service.

I've created a device collection within SCCM and have placed 2 PC's in their to test with. Both are running outdated versions of Firefox, and Chrome that were installed manually.

I then created an ADR and point it to the test collection I created earlier. I specific the ADR to pull any and all updates from the Vendor" PatchMyPC" and then tell it there is no deployment package since these updates are stored within WSUS.  (Not sure if these is the right way to do this) and the proceed to finish building out the ADR.

I've made sure that the client settings are configured to allow third party software updates as well as made sure that the SUP is configured to allow 3rd party updates. I have unsubscribed from the PatchMyPC Third Party Software Catalog. I've synchronized the software update catalog, and ran all site actions under the configmgr client as well as cleared the cache and I am still not seeing any of the updates show up in software center.

Any insite as to what I am missing would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for the help. I will be sure to follow this documentation and go from there.
Alright, I un-subscribed and have re-ran the publisher. however since they updates were pulled as meta already it looks like it will not publish full content to SCCM. Looks like I may need to purge these updates from WSUS?
Hey Mitchel, Thanks for pointing that out. We do in fact have a subscription to the Patch My PC Catalog under Third-Party Software Update Catalogs. Once I unsubscribe should I re-run the publisher sync service?


HI all, I am taking over a PatchMyPC implementation with our SCCM 1806 environment. Going through the tutorials it looks like it was already configured mostly correct. I am more or less just needing to build out the Device collections, Sugs, and the ADR's. However, one thing the that is stopping me is that even though we are using the publishing service  the updates are showing as meta data only even they the publisher is configured to download meta and full content.

Seeing no errors in the wsyncmgr.log or the patchmypc.log. Additionally 3rd party updates have been enabled on the SUP and the patch my pc product has been enabled.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated it.
