What version of Bladelogic is this?
We are at 22.214.171.1246
I was doing additional testing to get the BL patching analysis working, and tried updating the "Analysis Type" parameter. I tried setting it to "erratatype:security" (we are looking at security patches specifically), which failed. I also tried entering a specific errata id "errata:RHSA-2010:0681", which also failed. Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks!
i am using bl 8.0 sp3 and facing same issue. It shows no missing patches in both update and install option.i have tried with various catalog with different filters its not showing missing rpms.

In general, for a 'whitelist' situation you should create a catalog that matches the OS and arch - like RHES 5 i386 (or x86_64). then either in the catalog create a smart group that contains your rpms, or in the PAJ set a list of includes or excludes.
if you are messing around w/ the catalog filters it's possible you are creating a catalog w/ some dependency issues.
can you confirm that the patches you need are in the catalog?
another option would be to dig into this more and look at /var/tmp/stage/LinuxCatalog_blah/*.log on one or more of your targets to see if there is some problem w/ the actual yum analysis.
