SCCM Configmgr Software update Compliance Report for multiple Software Update groups per collection


Long ago ,did blog post on How to get software update compliance for specific update group per collection with drill down report to list the Required/missing ,unknown clients with some additional information like recent hardware inventory, last update scan results ,OS etc .

This report will only work for single software update group per collection ,but in Configuration Manager ,there could Multiple Software update group created as part of Patching process and it would be difficult to know the compliance status for the same collection for multiple update groups and this task become tedious if you run the same report multiple times and write down the results into file.

with the help of Configuration Manager console ,it is possible to see the Compliance % (Required, installed ,Unknown  and %) for the software update group for the deployed collection but if you want to see the same for multiple update groups and get the list of Required Clients etc ,not possible ,Thus you need SSRS Report.

Would it be nice to have SSRS Report that list the Software update compliance for multiple update groups per collection ?

This report is lying in my bucket for longer time and finally going out to public.

I have made little changes to the report (nothing major ) with respect to prompts (select multiple update groups) and drill down report changes as well.

This report allow you to select multiple Update groups and single collection as shown below . you need to action on Required(a.k.a Missing) and Unknown status.

It has 2 RDL files 1) Update compliance Status for multiple Groups per collection and 2) Linked report to know what are the client with specific Software update Status (Required ,Unknown)

First report looks like below:

Multiple Update Groups for Collection

Installed—>Specifies that the software update is applicable on the client computer and that the client computer already has the software update installed.

Not Required—>Specifies that the software update is not applicable on the client computer, and therefore, the software update is not required.

Required –>Specifies that the software update is applicable and required on the client computer

Unknown—> Specifies that the site server has not received a state message from the client computer,could be various reasons like scan did not run successfully,scan completed but state message did not sent successfully etc.

Click on the Arrow (blue color) to see the Required ,Unknown clients for the selected software update group:

  1. Very useful Eswar, exactly what I needed to unify SU compliance reports.

    I added some semaphoric color coding to make it more visual for quick inspections. You can include it if you like it.

    On "Software Update Compliance Status Per Collection for Multiple Groups" report on properties of the data row, I changed Fill > Backgroundcolor Expresion by

    =Switch(Fields!Success__.Value < 50,"Tomato", Fields!Success__.Value = 75, "LightGreen")

    and sorted results by Sucess ratio

    Thanks for such excellent report.

  2. This report SCCM Configmgr Software update Compliance Report for multiple Software Update groups per collection is really close to what my CIO is looking for, except he wants the 'dwell time' between a patch release and it's deployment on the target systems in a collection. How can I get the 'dwell time' i.e., the time between when a software update patch is released and when it's deployed? A thousand thanks in advance!
