Use this procedure to create a publication. The new publication is stored in the Updates Publisher 2011 repository.

To create a publication

  1. In the Updates Publisher 2011 console, click Publications. The Publications workspace is displayed in the navigation pane in the console.

  2. On the Publication tab, click Create.

  3. Enter the name of the new publication in the Publication Name box, and then click OK. Updates Publisher 2011 does not allow you to enter the name of a publication that already exists in the Updates Publisher 2011 repository.

After you have created the publication, you can go to the Updates workspace and assign software updates and software update bundles to the publication. For information about how to assign updates to a publication, see How to Assign Software Updates and Software Update Bundles to Publications.
