patchs Category not showing with custom repositories

i replicated SLES 11 SP2 updates repository and run the repodata on that folder.
when i run zypper list-updates i see many updates but when i run zypper list-patchs nothing is listed.
i tried the same command directly aginst$RCE/SLES11-SP2-Updates/sle-11-x86_64/ , and only then i see the secuiory categiries list im looking for.

am i missing somthing when creating my own repodata.
is repodata does not create the security categoris i need.
how do i check for patchs with my custom repositires.


example for a the required list.
# zypper lp --repo sles11-sp2-updates
