The Updates tab displays information about the available updates for installed Johnson Controls software. You can download the files you need to complete the update from the Updates tab. To open the tab, click on the Updates tab.

Click the Refresh icon on the Updates tab to complete a manual refresh and get new updates if available. From the time you click the refresh icon on the Updates tab until the refresh is in progress and the system is establishing a connection with the server, you cannot change the connection setting, change the proxy details, download, resume a download, or cancel a download.

Note: When you turn on the machine, the Software Manager checks when the scheduled refresh last occurred on that machine. If the scheduled refresh has not occurred in the past 12 hours and is not set up within 30 minutes when the user turns on the machine, the system runs the scheduler automatically to get the latest updates.
The following messages may display in the Updates tab based on different scenarios:
  • No updates are available in the system: No new available updates. The latest version is installed.
  • Online connection setting is set to None (Offline): Software Updates are not available when the online connection setting is None (Offline).
  • Installed version of the product is EOL and no updates are available: This product has been discontinued. Please contact your sales representative for further details.
  • Installed version of the product is EOL but some updates are available: The installed product has been discontinued. Please download and install the latest version.

The following table describes the details and the user actions shown for each available update for any installed products in the system.
