Report to detect specific Registry key

Hello all,

I am looking to create a report that can list all of the computers in our Inventory that is missing a specific registry key. Ultimately, we want to be able to apply this registry key, but being able to report this information before we start patching would be extremely helpful.

Thanks everyone!

You will have to create a custom inventory item that returns a registry value to the inventory. Once you do that, your should be able to easily create the report using the wizard.

Use scripting and custom inventory fields.

The script would:
1) check for existence of expected value. if it fails then it would go into remediation.
3) add a remediation step to add your own regkey flag (put this flag in the kace subkey)

the custom inventory rule would check for existence of the flag above which means the target key is not set.

To take this one step further you could have a filter that labels all of these machines and use that label as a target for your patching schedule
