Windows Update Report



How do I create a report that shows all the windows update information for all my windows update sensors?

I have 30 windows update (powershell) sensors. That sensor monitors 15 items. I would like a report with those 15 items for each server.

The report I can create only lists: Average Total (which looks like time since last update, which is the current primary channel), uptime/downtime, and good/failed.

Also, is there a way I can get this as a csv, not a PDF?

Hi there,

It won't work with the reports as they are designed to average the recorded values into the configured "slices", the channels you see in the sensors are in the end also just based on numbers behind them, so running reports is not really ideal for what you want to do.

In case you run a WSUS of your own, there you go, it will provide you those details, if not and you need to retrieve the data from the sensors, I would recommend getting PrtgAPI and run the command explained in this thread/post, as it will pull all channels's current values of the update sensors for each device and put them into a csv.

Kind regards,
