Windows Update Agent (WUA) Monitoring

Proactively monitor and control the Microsoft Windows Update Agent (WUA) with Domotz.

Start monitoring WUA settings using the Domotz custom scripts and be ready to:

  • Check the number and types of updates pending for servers and workstations
  • View pending security updates and install them immediately if required
  • Verify no pending reboots are preventing an update and issue reboot commands directly
  • Verify that no critical updates are waiting to be applied

Monitor Windows Update Agent quickly and easily directly from Domotz.

Integration Domotz + Microsoft Windows Update Agent

How to monitor Microsoft Windows Update Agent (WUA)

Microsoft Windows Update Agent WUA

You can monitor Microsoft WUA using our custom integration scripts:

  • windows_update.js - (SSH version) and windows_update.js (WINRM version) use PowerShell commands to retrieve the list of updates available at the Microsoft Windows system level.
  • windows_pending_reboot_sensor.js - (SSH version) uses the SSH-based WMI commands through PowerShell and checks if there are pending reboots for the updates to take effect. Through this script, the user can also issue a reboot command.

The scripts have been validated and tested on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019, and the usage of PowerShell 5.1.19041.2364.

Find them in our examples library or customize them to fit your needs.

How to monitor Windows systems updates

Microsoft WUA List and Count

Easily Monitor the list of updates to be applied to your Windows systems. List all the types of updates missing from a Windows System. As a result, you’ll find them divided by Category (Security vs. Generic updates) and Severity.

For instance, you can set an alert on the number of missing security updates so that you can be notified as soon as a new Security update is required.

You can then use Domotz to directly apply the updates to your Windows systems.

How to monitor Windows System Reboot command

Microsoft WUA Pending Reboot

Use Domotz to issue a Reboot command for your Windows System. Check for pending updates you can apply to your Windows System that requires a reboot. Checking for pending updates that require a reboot ensures that the system benefits from those updates as soon as possible.

If you notice that a vital update requires a system reboot, you can issue a Reboot command directly from Domotz.

You can also connect your Domotz Webhook or Public API data to a system like that will issue a Reboot command in response to an event (e.g., an update you’ve installed requires a reboot).
