About update statuses
Oct 23, 2023
Status is an attribute of software updates that defines whether a particular software update must be installed on a networked device.
An update can have the following statuses:
By default, the downloaded software updates have the Undefined status. The undefined updates can only be installed on Network Agent and other Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console components in accordance with the Network Agent policy settings.
The approved updates are always installed. If an update requires reviewing and accepting the terms of the End User License Agreement, then you first need to accept the terms.
The updates for which you set Declined status will not be installed on devices.
You can change statuses of updates for the following software:
- Network Agent and other Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console components
By default, the downloaded updates and patches for Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console components are installed automatically. If you have left the Automatically install applicable updates and patches for components that have the Undefined status option enabled in the Network Agent properties, then all updates will be installed automatically after they are downloaded to the repository (or several repositories). If this option is disabled, Kaspersky patches that have been downloaded and tagged with the Undefined status will be installed only after you change their status to Approved.
Updates for Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console components cannot be uninstalled, even if you set an update the Declined status.
- Kaspersky security applications
By default, updates for the managed applications are installed only after you change the update status to Approved. If a declined update for a security application was previously installed, Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console will try to uninstall the update from all devices.
