Specific links you will want to bookmark for future use
Make the PTFid a link to the PTF Cover Letter. Using Administration Runtime Expert to manage patches with a Central System, sending to multiple endpoints. When the report finishes and you drill down into which PTFs are missing it lists the Product and PTFid. I'd like to have that PTDid also be a link to the PTF cover letter so you can easily review it.
It appears all PTF cover letter starts with: "https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas3" so just append the PTFid to that and set it as a hyperlink.
As an alternative, add more PTF information about the PTF, if it can be applied immediate or must be delayed until the next IPL is critical information to know.
Improve patching process with enhanced fix-action PTF review.
