How to stay up to date with Windows updates

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) offers a fast way to get the latest Geek Chronicle from your favorite websites.

RSS feeds are an easy way to stay up to date with the websites you choose, such as blogs or magazines.

Microsoft has made many updates since the birth of the year, many before and after Tuesday. With all the downtime changes, it’s hard to tell whenand those changes will happen if you don’t look at the WSUS results. In the past, we’ve had to find Microsoft RSS feeds in easily accessible places to subscribe to, and also when Microsoft made changes to patches. We reworked all this when we immediately moved to cumulative updates.

Where can I download Windows updates manually?

After the last test, where a service stack update could be released by our team, I decided that I needed to write a guide on how to get important information faster and more interestingly in a modern way. I also wanted to use some of your new tools available for modern mechanization and control. To achieve what I did, you will definitely need patience and the right license suitable for Teams and Flow.

The first step is to create your own RSS feed for the products you choose. In my case, I got to Windows 10 Server and 2016 as they seem to have changed quite a bit. You can generate it using the link below to select a product id.

How do I get notified of Windows updates?

You choose and Product ID and create a new fertilizer RSS link. You will need it to set up your feed.

How do I get notified of Windows updates?

Double-click Configure Automatic Updates to activate the corresponding configuration field. Select On, then just select Notify Me to download and notify me to install from the options available outside of the dropdown menu. Click Apply and Finish. Reboot your work computer.

You must then log in to the O365 portal and select Flow

This often puts you in the “stream” workspace, if you’ve never had a used stream before, this may not be intimidating as there are many other options and possibilities, but people can do this quite easily, keep working with what we need to achieve. For what we’re going to do, we’ll choose the “Create from Empty” option – note that in many cases you can create this from an RSS -> Teams template card, as well as the other side, which has no way for you to learn how to add new basic steps in the process.

Flow will then ask you if you want to “create a Flow from scratch” or if you want to start with one of these favorite triggers. In nine out of ten cases, the “When the system is released” trigger is available, when it’s wrong anyway, we can basically click “Rebuild” to find the trigger itself. p>

At this point, click “Create starting with a space” and enter the search key a in the ‘RSS’ line to find the available trigger action ‘RSS – when feed item should be published’.< / p>

Note that in addition to the “Triggers” section, this element also has an “Actions” section. There is only one “Action” for the RSS connector type, however other connectors contain more actions such as Teams, Sharepoint and others. Usually, after selecting a feed trigger, you want to be able to paste the RSS feed URL into the field, as well as add a new step.

In this combination, we only need one action, definitely a condition. The best match search box will open, containing all the available connectors. A simple search for “teams” will return all the options you can buy for teams. The connector we both want to select can then select the “Microsoft Teams – Post a message” option. Let’s start filling in the information we want to send to the teams, this is the message for our example, we really need something like the following.

You must allow them to authorize the selected command you wish to send Notification Of course, you should be able to notify this team of all teams that people belong to, as long as they are dynamically included in the room scroll. Then you need to select some of the id channels you want to send a message to and automatically populate them after selecting “team id”. You can then paste in the message body. From there, you have to use our own “Dynamic Content” option, and you can enter some information as shown in the “Use” section, and in the search box, select the options that I have listed here that you do not use. Don’t use them, but I suggest at least Channel Name, Channel Summary, and Main Channel Link.

With this approach, you’re done! Just bite and you’re done! The next time Microsoft releases an update for anything in that particular area of ​​Windows 10, even if it’s just a simple metadata update, you’ll get a message in Teams followed by a link to the support site explaining what they’ve changed.< /p>
