December 2022 CU for SharePoint 2013 product family is available for download

The product group released the December 2022 Cumulative Update for the SharePoint 2013 product family.

For December 2022 CU we have full server packages (also known as Uber packages) for all products. No other CU is required to fully patch SharePoint.

As this is a common question: Yes, December 2022 CU includes all fixes from December 2022 PU.


Be aware that all Updates for SharePoint 2013 require SharePoint Server 2013 SP1 to be installed first.

Please also have a look at the article that discusses how to properly patch a SharePoint 2013 farm which has Search enabled (see below).

Previous releases of the SharePoint Server 2013 cumulative update included both the executable and the .CAB file in the same self-extracting executable download. Because of the file size, the SharePoint Server 2013 package has been divided into several separate downloads. One contains the executable file, while the others contain the CAB file. All are necessary and must be placed in the same folder to successfully install the update. All are available by clicking the same Hotfix Download Available link in the KB article for the release.

This CU includes all SharePoint 2013 fixes (including all SharePoint 2013 security fixes) released since SP1. The CU does not include SP1. You need to install SP1 before installing this CU.

After installing the fixes you need to run the SharePoint 2013 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm. If you prefer to run the command line version psconfig.exe ensure to have a look here for the correct Options.

Be aware that the SharePoint Server 2013 CU contains the SharePoint Foundation 2013 CU. And the Project Server 2013 CU also contains the SharePoint Server 2013 CU and SharePoint Foundation 2013 CU.

  1. Hello Stefan,

    Hope all the previous workflow issues are resolved from this December 2022 patch. Is that correct? (or) still we need to do any update in the web.config file? Please update.


    1. Hi Prabhu,
      seems there is a misunderstanding – the “issues” listed there were the result of a security fix. This is the new behavior and nothing that requires fixing.
      The code is now more stringent in what is allowed and it will require to add additional required 3rd party components manually in the web.config.
