For this blog, I’m going to go over a very basic script I wrote to quickly get application deployment statuses without having to use the Configuration Manager GUI console. I find the ReportingDeployments tab very slow to respond, and you still have to dig into each individual app if you want details. What this function does is allow you to specify what you think is the name of the application and it will find anything like it, allow you to select the one you want, and then it will run a deployment summarization and output the results.
|Function called with the correct name of the package|
In this example, “Tanium Client” is the actual name of a software package, so it doesn’t need to pop up a prompt asking us which one we actually wanted.
|Function called with a keyword instead of the full package name|
|After package was selected from the pop up|
