WSUS Update Pre-Configuration/Post-Configuration Scripts

Hello,

I had a question about WSUS/Windows Update. I would like to run a pre-configuration and a post-configuration script when an update is installed on my endpoints. I would like these scripts to run regardless if the install was triggered by the system tray notification/Windows Update Control Panel, an install updates and shutdown event, a scheduled install, or a WSUS forced deadline.

Does WSUS/Windows Update offer any support for this capability? I am willing to develop a solution in house if these capabilities are exposed through any API/SDK.

Thank you for any information you can provide.

I think that the WSUS 3.0 API supports the deployment of third party updates. You can use the System Center Updates Publisher to create the Adobe Reader update package and publish the update to the WSUS Server. Unfortunately, the native WSUS Admin Console does not provide the ability to manage/monitor such updates, so you also would need to manage/monitor the updates via the WSUS API. However, there is a third-party add-on product for WSUS that does provide the ability to manage/monitor third party updates in the WSUS Server.
