Additional Information


When Discovery runs to discovery a computer (cmdb_ci_computer), the OS Security Patches are not included in the data collected in OOB, refer to KB0668792.

Customer should be advised that the requirement requires a customization particularly in the "Windows - Installed Software" probe and sensors.

The list of registry locations that our probe pulls from are listed in the WMI Fields related list at the bottom of the record. The probe script and associated sensor process the data from these registry locations. 

If you would like to see all Windows hotfixes, patches, and security patches then you would need to add the appropriate registry locations to the WMI list and customize the script of the probe and sensor to process the additional data. 

 

There is a current Enhancement Request for this: FTASK27183.
