Is there any documentation available regarding the new "Third-Party Software Update Catalog" functionality within SCCM 1806 and Lenovo providing the catalogue for integration of drivers and BIOS updates into SCCM?
Anyone already using it and deploying it?

I have updates flowing from Dell, HP, Adobe and Patch My PC but I really need Lenovo to get on board with the 3rd Party Updates through SCCM. When will Lenovo be publishing this?

We are in the process of getting a catalog published in the format required for the new feature in the SCCM console. Hopefully will have it ready this month.
There are, however, a few challenges with the current implementation in the SCCM console. For one, there are technical limitations on how updates execute in order to be deliverable through this process. This means not all of our updates can be included in the catalog. There is also a challenge with identifying the specific models supported by an update. Some of our content is applicable to a large set of models and there is not enough room to include the list in the title field provided by the catalog schema.
We have also seen that subscribing to a 3rd party catalog through SCCM will automatically publish all the content from the catalog into the All Software Updates group. In the past when using SCUP, an admin would be able to select which updates were published into the console. For those of you using this feature with other 3rd party catalogs, is this causing any issues or seen as undesirable?

Absolutely no issue with the updates being published to SCUP automatically, as long it doesn't require that all Published updates be downloaded; that needs to still be managed via SCCM's SUG process.

Question for parkerjnc
The "catalog published in the format required for the new feature in the SCCM console"
Will it support all Lenovo Devices contrary to your current SCUP Catalogue :https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/lnvo-suap
I know there is Lenovo Patch but its working like SCUP and I really dont want to have to deal with the Certificate stuff with WSUS.
Also, just to see if its working I tried the Lenovo Patch Catalog "LenovoUpdatesCatalog2.cab" in my personnal Lab.
And it's working in the New SCCM Third Party Apps Format.
Its in lab so If im not suppose to use it sorry, but its really nothing production.
