How do I change 'Windows Update Status' sensor for all servers at once?



Hi All

I'm trying to modify the sensor 'Windows Updates Status (Powershell)' so that it will work as we need it. So I've gone to 'Sensor' -> By type -> W -> Windows Updates Status (Powershell). I now see all my sensors of that type. I then click on 'All'. And then go to 'Settings'. Then to Channel Settings But here I only see a subset of channels, where did the others go? I see all the '... Hidden', but none of the '... Installed' or '... Missing'

bulk-edit sensor update windows

Hi there,

Tab "Channel" in Multi-Edit dialogue will only show channels that all selected sensors have in common. Channels that do not appear are for some reason then not present in all sensors I'm afraid as there can be indeed difference which channels are being created on a particular host.

Kind regards,
