Configuring the Drupal Update Manager

Drupal Version

The Update Manager, if used properly, can provide you an easily-accessible location to view what modules and themes need updating.

The settings for the Update Manager ( admin/reports/updates/settings ) provide a few key settings:

  • E-mail addresses to notify when updates are available - A list of emails to be notified when Drupal finds a new release of a module.
  • Check for updates of disabled modules and themes - To ensure all modules are kept up to date, this should be checked (on multi-sites, you only need to check disabled modules and themes for ONE of the multisites).
