WSUS copy approval between groups

Posted on 2010-01-08
Last Modified: 2013-11-21
I'm have just installed WSUS 3 SP2.
I have 3 groups :
1. Test ICT
2. Test Extended
3. Unclassified Computers (built-in)
I'd like each week to :
- Approve New updates on Test ICT group
- Approve the updates already accepted on Test ICT group to  the Test Extended group
- Approve the updates already accepted on Test Extended group to  the Unclassified Computers group
I don't find a easy way to do this (without checking each update one by one)
Can you help me?

    Yes, I have.
    But I don't see how I can see the updates approved :
    - only for my Test ICT group that are not yet applied to the Test Extended and All computer groups.
    - only for my Test Extended group that are not yet applied to the All computer group.
    The only way I see now is to check updates one by one (and there's too much to do this)

    You may want to add to this list
    The closet I can see to achieving what you want is to highlight all your updates>>>right click>>>select approve>>>then modify your approval groups accordingly

    Just because what you ask isnt available, doesnt merit giving me a "C". Sometimes the correct answer is "NO" or "You cant do that"
