Can we create a Kace notification that contains a link that would open the Windows Update window on the computer?

Is it possible to deploy a Kace notification that when a user clicks on a link, it would open the Windows Update window

short answer: no

long answer:
if you are using 11.0 or newer the KACE on demand patching will patch on click of the client: https://support.quest.com/kb/328358
for a future version it is planned that you can have links in the agent itself, but this is not yet released.

Hi, yes, I have the latest 11.0 already, and I know that there is a module for Feature Update Patch and for on-demand patching.  I am looking to use this notification to open up the Windows Update window for people who have Windows 10 1903 and older which the Kace SMA Feature Update module does not support.  I was thinking to have the Kace Notification have a link for people to click on that would open the Windows Update directly so that people can click on update to update their Feature Update.

  • this is currently not possible (especially since no clickable links are supported in the scripting)
