Accessible for the Developer and Business plan users only.

On the Automatic updates subpage, you can see which of your web applications have auto-updates enabled. You can turn automatic updates for each of your apps on / off.
Patchstack also has an option to only auto-update the components which have vulnerabilities detected.

Automatic updates feature is available since version 2.0.11. So, if there is no possibility of turning auto-updates on, make sure you have the latest version of Patchstack installed on your site.

For each app, you have the following options:

  1. Auto-update only vulnerable components (recommended)
  2. Auto-update WordPress core
  3. Auto-update plugins
  4. Auto-update themes

Turning on the Auto-Updates

To turn on the Auto-Updates feature, click on Change in the corresponding table row.
You will be shown a popup (see the image below).

To activate any of the options, toggle the buttons.

❗️

Keep in mind that updating software could potentially break your site. For safety reasons, it is recommended to auto-update at least your vulnerable components.

After toggling the buttons, click Update.
