From time to time you would want to patch your environment outside of your regular patching cycle due to:
- Fix zero-day vulnerability.
- Deploy a critical patch for your environment.
- Deploy a patch that failed in the previous patching cycle.
- Meet the expected SLA.

How to configure Emergency Remediation Plan
Create a Maintenance Schedule
JetPatch will execute the Remediation Plan on a predefined Maintenance Schedule.
If the Maintenance Schedule does not exist in JetPatch you can create it in Maintenance Schedules.
Assign Emergency maintenance for a Remediation Plan
In the first section of a Remediation Plan, you can mark the "Emergency remediation plan" check box.
After configuring the actions "Approve Patches" and continue to the "Create Cycle" step, a new column "Emergency Maintenance" will appear in the shown table.
Click on a relevant Endpoint Group and choose a Maintenance Schedule from the list.
Note: If you want to exclude certain endpoints from the emergency remediation plan, feel free to suspend those endpoints.
