Blocklisting patches on Windows

Updated on October 17th, 2022

Blocklisting (formerly known as blacklisting) is a tool that site administrators and the Miradore Team can use to block the installation of unwanted or faulty patches that cause crashes or other unexpected issues.

How to blocklist or unblocklist patches?

Navigate to the Management > Patches page, and go the Patches tab.

Patches information shown under management.

Open up the patch that you want to blocklist/unblocklist by double-clicking on the row or by clicking the arrow icon on the rightmost end of the row.

On the Patch page, use the Add to blocklist and Remove from blocklist buttons.

Add and remove blocklist buttons.

Managed devices will receive the blocklist when they sync with Miradore next time. If you want your devices to get information about the blocklisted patches immediately, go to the Devices page and run Actions > Sync now for all devices.

Please note that you cannot unblocklist patches blocklisted by Miradore. The deployment of patches blocklisted by Miradore is blocked globally on all Miradore sites. Contact the Miradore support team if you want to unblocklist a patch blocked by Miradore.

How to see which patches are blocklisted?

You can see which patches are blocklisted on the Management > Patches page's Patches tab. The Blocklisted column indicates whether the patch has been blacklisted on the Miradore site by site administrators, globally by Miradore, or both. The Blocklisted column is not visible on the page by default, but you can add it through the Select columns drop-down menu.

You can also see the blocklisting status of a patch from the Patch page.
