WHITEPAPER: System Center Updates Publisher Catalog Authoring Best Practices

image[taken from Jason Lewis’ System Center Configuration Manager blog]

Over the past year I have received lots of questions on how to properly author SCUP catalogs.  Some of the most common questions have been …

  • "When should I modify my existing update or create a new one?"
  • "When should I remove an update from my catalog (and/or SCUP)"?
  • "Should I use prerequisite rules?"

And many more… 

With all the questions I have decided to create a catalog authoring guide.  This guide provides best practices for anyone that is authoring catalogs.  My hope is to continually update this document as I receive more questions.  If you have authoring questions that are not answered in this document please send me your question here and I will attempt to answer it and later add it to this guide.

Jason Lewis is a Program Manager (PM) on the System Center Configuration Management Team at Microsoft and has been with the team for over 5 years so you’re know you’re getting this from a true SCUP expert.
