The Updates Publisher console tree pane appears on the left side of the System Center Updates Publisher console. The console tree contains the System Center Updates Publisher, <vendor name>, and <product name> nodes. When a tree node is selected, the content of that node is displayed in the results pane. For example, when the product node is selected in the console tree pane, all corresponding software updates are displayed in the results pane.
Each node in the console tree pane has global and specific actions available. For more information about the actions available for each node in the console tree pane, see Updates Publisher Actions.
