check for update from SQL Server

Mon Aug 08, 2022 9:25 pm

Hi

We have a over the top set of policies that do not allow us to simply store a file somewhere and check it for updates. Is there a way to check for updates using a database table field? I could use this no problem because the project is internal.

Thanks

Hello,

Unfortunately, this is not possible.

Our Updater uses the URL location of the file. This file must be placed on your server, and it must contain all the necessary settings for the update process.

More details on the Updater article.

If you have any other questions, please let us know.

Best regards,
Liviu

Hi,

Yes. The Updater can use the following protocols of URL: http://, https://, ftp://, file://

For more details, please have a look on our Using the Updater for local deployment article.

Also, you can check my reply with detailed steps on the forum thread here.

Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,
Liviu
