Supervision of OS updates
Starting with rport client version 0.2.4 the supervision of available operating system updates is possible
To enable update supervision you must have the following line in the
[client]section of your
# ...snip ...snap
updates_interval = '4h'
A refresh of the update status can be requested through the API and the user interface independently of the specified update interval. Going faster than 4 hours is usually not need and not recommended.
Don't forget to restart the rport client after changing the configuration file. Use
systemctl restart rport.
⚠️ Debian, Ubuntu and SuSE Linux need a sudo rule to fetch the update status. Create a file
/etc/sudoers.d/rport-update-statuswith the following content.
Debian & Ubuntu
rport ALL=NOPASSWD: SETENV: /usr/bin/apt-get update -o Debug\:\:NoLocking=true
