WSUS – Windows Updates Workflow

The last few weeks I’ve been working at a customer for patch management for the Windows Operating System in their environment through WSUS.
For this, I’ve created a simple workflow that would be applicable to any environment. Because the environment I’m currently working at doesn’t have a test environment (yet!) and is somewhat behind with applying their Windows Updates, the workflow needed to include some troubleshooting options in case an application caused problems and stuff like it.
So, here’s what I came up with:

If you can use it, have fun.
If you need to change it, have fun.


  1. Where does the flow start?

    Where is the START and END? It seems to all flow in and out of each rule.

    Thanks for sharing. I’m looking forward to additional articles with your WSUS strategy
