Detect Label settings

My servers are not being updated as I suspect them to be. I have a Detect All script running daily with the Detect Labels of: p_app & p_os.  Will these two labels also detect the updates needed with these labels: p_os_sec_win2016, p_os_sec_win2019, p_app_sec_ms, p_os_opt_win2012r2 etc...?

Thanks Hobbsy,

I'm just trying to figure out why I have had not updates hit my PC's or servers in now 3 months.  My weekly Patch Detect script has this as it's setting:   ATn60QPSpY0vAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC Is it missing updates? My workstation is set to the same but the Device Label is ws_all.  My Server Deploy Detect Label: wHFNW8x4NFhFgAAAABJRU5ErkJggg== plus 2019 servers. I'm really close to contacting support to verify my settings.  Maybe I busted something.

KACE Support assisted me. We cleaned up all the Patching labels and made just 2 and verified they are the same to for the Detect process.

Yes, if you have selected to detect all patches, then any patch in any label will be included in that. 

If you have selected to detect only the patches in those two patch labels, then that is all it will detect.

Thanks Hobbsy,

So if I have it set to detect p_os, then it will pickup patches with the p_os_sec_win2016 label?  I guess I am asking if p_os is a top level label it will include all those labels below it?

Ok so to be clear you cannot use a wildcard on labels, so you cannot say if the label starts p_os then include all labels.

You could create a group of group (label of labels)?

so you have  the following labels created

  • p_os_sec_win2016
  • p_os_sec_win2019
  • p_app_sec_ms
  • p_os_opt_win2012r2

And then create a label P_OS and add in the three starting P_OS and then just select the label of labels in the schedule?

But when you can add multiple labels to any schedule I 'm not sure I understand why you would need to do that?
