Hi Sachin, sorry - thats the wrong answer :-)

Let me explain. - When I check what patches are required for a specific machine I would like to know, out of those patches, which ones are included in a policy and which ones aren't. I dont want to have to check each patch individually to see waht policy its in (cause thats just nuts)

Run the Compliance by Bulletin report with Parameter: 'Distribution Status:' dropdown set to 'Active'

This will only return compliance for updates that have been downloaded and have a Software Update Policy created for them.

Keep in mind that the Compliance Reports will remove any bulletins that are not vulnerable or have been superseded in the environment.
