Microsoft Update Catalog RRS feed

  • Question

  • I seem to keep missing updates that are available for WSUS but only if you download them manually from the Microsoft update catalog and then import into WSUS.  Is there a way I can check once a month to see what has been added to the Microsoft Update Catalog so i can determine if I want to import anything that month?

  • I know you think that would be a good idea, but it's not. What are you missing? It's extremely likely you don't have the correct products and classifications checked or your client systems (thinking Windows 10) are out of support for Pro (another common issue - 1607 is no longer in support - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13853/windows-lifecycle-fact-sheet)

  • Verifying what you have selected for products and classifications should be done on a regular basis - I suggest quarterly as noted in part 8 of my blog series on How to Setup, Manage, and Maintain WSUS in which part 8 deals with the Maintenance.

  • Hi Jrauman,
       

    I'm not sure if you want to subscribe to an RSS feed for a specific product, in the Microsoft Update Catalog.
    If so, it's very simple. (P.S. only available for IE)
       

          

        

    In WSUS, select the products and classifications you need, you can achieve the same functions, and sort by time and filter. Moreover, updates in WSUS will only download updated program files after you have approved them.
       

    If I understand the problem incorrectly, please let me know and keep in touch.
        

    Regards,
    Yic
