Get SCCM Software Update Status using Powershell

I created an SCCM Software Update Status script because very recently I wanted to check the status of my Software Update Deployments within SCCM and quickly found out that there was no easy way of exporting the data I needed. For example, I wanted to export all of the computers that were in progress or pending a reboot so I can run another script and possibly reboot them during off hours. I also wanted to check to see which computers had errors or failed updates so I can quickly run a remote scan cycle and see if that remediates the problem.

I was able to identify the problem, now it was time to create a solution. So with a little bit of Google searching and some knowledge from ol’ trusty Learn Powershell In a Month Of Lunches Book I was able to create Get-SCCMSoftwareUpdateStatus.ps1

Script Requirements

If you’re using the DeploymentIDFromGUI parameter you will need to have the SCCM Configuration Module installed on your computer. Otherwise, this script uses WMI to gather the data. If you’re running the script remotely, you will need to have access to the SCCM server, although that should be a given.

Script Parameters

  • DeploymentIDFromGUI: A grid view of your current Software Update deployments will pop up. Select the update you want to query and click OK.

DeploymentIDFromGUI Example
 

  • DeploymentID: Manually enter in a DeploymentID. To get the DeploymentID, go to Monitoring -> Deployments -> Right Click the column header and select AssignmentID

DeploymentID AssignmentID
 

  • Status: This parameter allows you to filter by status. Only Success, InProgress, Error and Unknown are valid.
