Our SSRS report writers are beaming from ear to ear about this give-away! The Overall Missing Software Update Status by Classification report gives ConfigMgr administrators a high-level report about the overall percentage of missing software updates. You can view results by using three different report parameters: collection, deployed state of software updates, and software update classification. Make sure to stop by Booth #207 to get a copy of this free report. Next week we will tell you about report give-away #2.
Using three different report parameters, you select the collection to display, the software update deployed state, and the software update classification you want to view.
Use the collection report parameter to select which device collection to display results for, i.e. All Systems Collection.
The deployed state report parameter allows you to select the deployed state of the software update. The deployed states are:
- Yes – The effected software update is deployed within your environment
- No – The effected software update is NOT deployed within your environment
The classification report parameter enables you to select which software update classification to display within the report. The update classifications, listed in order of severity are: Critical Updates, Security Updates, Definition Updates, Service Packs, Update Roll-ups, Updates, Tools, and Feature Packs.

The defaults for this report are set as follows:
- Collection: All Systems

- Classification: None Selected (you will have to choose the classification)
