Update a SQL database based on OCS


I would like to monitor a software version and update a MariaDB database based on the software version this way :

Actual software release version : 2

- Computer 1 has Software version 1 -----> UPDATE Computer 1 [...] CanUpdate = YES

- Computer 2 has Software version 2 -----> UPDATE Computer 1 [...] CanUpdate = NO

The process would update the database table everytime i run it, depending on the computer deployed versions and the updated server version.

The OCS server is on Debian 9 and i can get the software version number on the OCS Inventory computer list.

What would be the best way to do this ? Using a bash script on the cron table of the OCS server ?

Also, can you edit the software column in OCS Inventory to add a "last edited" or "last update" date ?

Thanks for your input

Hi Dear,

All the software version info are stored in the table "Softwares" in your ocs database,

How About you make a procedure in the database, to update the datas you want ?

Best Regards
