API call to find all patches/packages ever created for a certain type? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi, 

    I'm trying to create an API that fetches Packages from live windows servers (2008, 2012, 2016) and match them with a list of all patches ever created for that server type.

    Now I'm wondering, is there any API call that I can make in order for me to get all the packages/patches ever created for a certain type of server? I can't seem to find it.

    Kind regards,

  • Aside from the fact that you are wasting a lot of time trying to write a patching solution when there are numerous products that can already do this (WSUS is even free!), your question doesn't make very much sense; sorry.
