Updates

This patch contains these updates:

Support for creating and approving change requests for patch remediation operations 

When you create operations for applying missing patches on assets, you can now create a change request in the change management system, which tracks the operation, and goes through a change approval process. In 20.02, integration with BMC Remedy IT Service Management system was already supported for the vulnerability remediation operations. If you have enabled the integration, no additional configuration is required to enable change creation and approval for a patch operation. 

For more information, see Change automation

Tagging assets

On the Scanned Assets page, you can now add tags to the assets imported from a vulnerability scan results file. While creating a vulnerability remediation operation, you can choose assets based on the tags.

To add tags, you must export the assets data into a CSV file, enter tag information in a key:value pair format, and then import the updated CSV file back in Automation Console. Alternatively, you can download the CSV template from the Advanced Search option and upload the same file in Automation Console after entering the information details about assets and tags. 

For more information, see Working with assets.
