I need to tweak my patch subscription settings in order to conserve hard drive space. Currently I only subscribe to specific OS's in our enviornment but all patches including applications. There is an option to "Limit patch downloads to specific labels" which I would like to use. While I certainly don't deploy all patches I do like to be able to see all that are available to deploy in case I need to. My question is if I enable this option will I still be able to see all available patches or will I only be limited to my specified labels?

In subscription settings if you Check "Hide Disabled Patches on Patch Listing" you will only be able to see patches you subscribe to. If you leave that unchecked you will be able to see all of the patches that the kbox can patch if the files were downloaded to you server or not. Having Patch downloads limited by labels will not affect this functionality.
