The Security Updates Guide is a great place to find security updates in a browser, and the Security Updates API is intended for doing automation around Microsoft security updates.
This project contains sample code and documentation for the Microsoft Security Updates API (https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-us/developer), including:
- source code for the MsrcSecurityUpdates PowerShell module
- sample code for using the MsrcSecurityUpdates PowerShell module
- OpenAPI/Swagger definition for the Microsoft Security Updates API
Getting the MsrcSecurityUpdates PowerShell Module
Getting started with the MsrcSecurityUpdates module can be done like this:
### Install the module from the PowerShell Gallery ### !! Requires PowerShell V5 ### !! Install-Module requires admin permission Install-Module -Name MsrcSecurityUpdates ### Load the module Import-Module -Name MsrcSecurityUpdates

The Security Updates API requires an API key. To obtain an API key please visit the Security Updates Guide. For help using the Security Updates Guide please visit the Security Updates Guide Community Forum.
NOTE: Currently generating api keys requires an @outlook.com, @live.com, or @microsoft.com email address. If you do not have one of these email addresses, you can create a personal outlook account to access this service while we investigate this issue.
For up to date major changes, please read the psd1 included in the src folder. This can also be seen on the Microsoft Powershell Gallery.
