Software updates in Policy Manager: show installed version of outdated software
In the Policy Manager (version 15.30), the "Software updates" are showing under "Update description" the version of the software that can or should be updated to.
However, I would also like to see the version that is currently installed on the client.
Maybe this question has been asked before, but I have not found anything here.

Good day to you and thank you for the detailed explanation.
i apologize that my colleague didnt got it at first glance.
The feature that you are requesting for our Policy Manager doesnt have it yet. I alreay have spoke to the Product Stakeholders and they will consider it to have it implements in future releases.
However the same feature is avaliable in Elements Security Center ( I have attahed a sample screenshot) that shows the Current installed version and the one that is avaliable to update.
Stake holders are quite confident that this is something doable in future releases :) as we already have done it for Elements Security Center( EPP)
i hope i have answered your question
Let us know if any.

You can refer to this article Allowing end users to manage software updates.0
Thanks for the detailed explanation, its possible that you can view that installed software through web reporting.
You can then click the Installed Software Updates which redirects to a new page where you can view the version for the installed software.
For information about web reporting, you can refer here https://help.f-secure.com/product.html#business/policy-manager/15.10/en/task_083D22EE772C4F308780BB65B1098846-15.10-en
I hate to say it, but that's not what I'm looking for either.
The reporting leads to further problems.
I can only log in there with the admin account, but not with an AD account like in the Policy Manager.
The Report shows the Version of an already installed update and the number of hosts, but not the name of the hosts.
To describe it in detail with an example:
The software updater detects outdated versions of GIMP. In this case the list for the domain contains 4 entries with 6 affected hosts in total (2 entries have 2 hosts each).
The column 'Update description' contains the version to be updated to. This is not the currently installed version. But that's the one I'm interested in!
Why there are 4 entries for 6 hosts? The CVE-ID is the same, but the Bulletin number differs. Probably because 4 different versions of GIMP are installed.
In addition, please note that an ETA is not available when the feature will be implemented for the Business Suite, such as Policy Manager.0
