Compliance Reporting on Expired Updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Now that the September updates are available. For example take KB4515384 has been released. The August version of the Cumulative Update has been expired and no longer shows up in Software Updates. Is there a report that will show compliance with the August update, or any other previous month's updates, after the update has expired?

  • Hi Mark,

    As Eswar mentioned, when the expired updates are deleted from DB/ SCCM console, then we couldn’t get their reports, we can only get the compliance information from client sides.

    Based on your scenario, we could configure SUP Supersedence behavior to wait a few months before the update expired. In this way, the last month’s updates will still show in the console and we can get their compliance reports.  

    In addition, for example, we could review the compliance report of September updates in September. So we don't need to worry about the updates will be expired in October.

    Hope above information helps.

    Best Regards,
    Tina

    No ,you cannot track the status of the update for expired updates that are deleted from DB/console .If the update expired but still appear in console ,you can get it from the console directly.

    Got it thank you. So is the strategy then to not expire, superseded updates right away so that you can report on them? With the cumulative update system, you would almost never see that a computer is not updated as it expires so quickly? There's really no way to tell if a Windows 10 computer is one month or 1 year out of date then is there?
