Labeling computers with patches listed under "Deployment Scheduled"
My detect and deployment schedules run every day. Computer A and B might both have detected patches they need, but the patches available for deployment are controlled via a collection of labels. So, while both computers detected eligible patches, it might be the case that only computer A will deploy patches during the next daily deployment schedule, while computer B will not. I would like to create a label that applies to Computer A, but NOT computer B in this scenario. This will allow me to run a series of scripts against only the computers with patches to deploy during the next daily deployment schedule.
If I examine the inventory settings for computers A & B, I can easily determine which computer will be patching during the daily deploy schedule by examining the "Deployment Scheduled" list under "Security" > "Patching Detect/Deploy Status" > "Deploy Status". How can I leverage this information for a smart label?
If not a smart label, what about a SQL select/update statement?
