How to choose a specific application when setting up patch management?

So, I want to configure a patch schedule that detects then deploys (two serprerent schedules) for adobe products. BUT I want to only detect and deploy for Adobe Reader and Acrobat. I don't need Adobe creative cloud or any other application adobe makes.
In Security>Patch Management>Publisher I can see where you can choose what publishers you would like to detect for, but not any specific application.

Is this even possible or can I only choose Adobe?
Just wondering, thanks.

in addition to the subscription settings you need to create a smart label which contains only the software items you need.
And if you set then the subscription to As Missing, only the detected patches will be downloaded.

Alright, would I be using patch smart label or a software smart label?

What do I write/configure in the smart label creation box?  Would I write 'Name' '=' 'reader' ?
