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. This will add the Emergency icon () to the title of the Remediation Plan.
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.
