Happy New Year Symantec and the Connect Community.
Today I updated my patch toolkit () with version 0.6.7, brining in a couple of features ontop of some project consolidation (nothing visible from the end-user standpoint but I have implementing a generic initializer and a config class that allow me to further consolidate the project codes).
Here are the features implemented in 0.6.7:
- /severity=<severity>|* now has a wildcard token ("*") that allows users to select any severities instead of only one [available in both ZeroDayPAtch.exe and PAtchAutomation.exe]
- /custom-sp=<sp_name> allows the user to specify a stored procedure name that will be executed [available in PatchAutomation.exe alone]
What's specially interesting in this case (and in the combination of both features) is that it is now possible to generate a result-set to be used in the tool based on what ever the end user want.
The /custom-sp switch will run if the stored procedure name exist, or return nothing and exit with a return code of 0. IF the procedure exist the result set _must_ contain at least 4 columns named (in any order):
The _ResourceGuid must be the guid of a software bulletin resource.
The bulletin is a name used in display and log events.
The severity is a string and is used to match the command line /severity.
The release field is a date time field used to filter out bulletins based on release dates (/released-before and /released-after, used with a default value of <runtime> and <runtime - 1 year>).
With that said, I'll extend again my best wishes to everyone in the community and beyond:
