In dem Post “Welche Policies sind neu? (Second Edition)” haben wir bereits ein neues Feature der GPS angekündigt, welche wir nun für Windows 8 und Windows Server 2012 upgedated haben.

Das dazu passende Userinterface ist derzeit noch abhängig vom verwendeten RSS Reader, da wir die Daten mittels RSS/XML übertragen. Dies werden wir in einem der künftigen major Release Updates anpassen (derzeit noch kein Zeitplan vorhanden).

Hier nun die Beschreibung der API/Parameter:

  1. Der Service wird über http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx ausgeliefert
  2. Verfügbare Parameter:     
    1. supportedon=integer => zu welchem Produkt sollen die Policies angezeigt werden?
    2. strict=boolean => soll der Wert “supportedon” interpretiert werden als einzig für dieses Produkt (bzw. startend mit diesem Produkt) oder incl. älterer Policies?         
      Bsp.: supportedon=128&strict=true ergibt alle neuen Policies für IE8 (aka “Only Internet Explorer 8”)
    3. remove=integer => Entfernt aus der Ergebnisliste von “supportedon” alle Produkte, die zu dem Wert passen
  3. Verfügbare Werte:     
    1. boolean: true|false
    2. integer: dies ist ein binary Wert, der als Schalter für folgende Produkte dient:         
      1 Windows 2000                                                                                       
      2 Windows XP                                                                                         
      4 Windows Vista/2008                                                                                 
      8 Windows 7/2008R2                                                                                   
      32 Internet Explorer 5/6                                                                              
      64 Internet Explorer 7                                                                                
      128 Internet Explorer 8                                                                                
      256 Office 2007                                                                                        
      512 Miscellaneous                                                                                      
      1024 Windows Server 2003                                                                                
      2048 Internet Explorer 9                                                                                
      4096 Office 2010                                                                                        
      8192 Windows 8/2012                                                                                     
      16384 Office 2013                                                                                        
      32768 Internet Explorer 10                                                                               
      65536 User Policy Settings Only                                                                          
      131072 Machine Policy Settings Only                                                                       
      262144 Internet Explorer 11                                                                               
      524288 Windows 8.1/Server 2012R2 


      Das bedeutet, dass die Werte kombiniert werden können, was allerdings nicht in jeder Zusammenstellung Sinn macht:          
      Bsp.: Internet Explorer 6 + Internet Explorer 7 => 32 + 64 = 96          
      => supportedon=128&remove=96 ergibt alle neuen Policies seit IE8          
    3. Ausserdem kann in den integer Wert noch folgendes hinzugenommen werden:         
      1. nur User Policies (HKCU) => 65536
      2. nur Machine Policies (HKLM) => 131072
      genutzt werden.

Nun aber genug der blanken Theorie, hier die Beispiele aus dem ersten Blogpost:

-    Which new policies have been introduced with Windows Vista => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=4&remove=3    
-    Which new policies have been introduced with Windows 7 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=8&remove=7    
-    Which new policies have been introduced with Windows 8 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=8192&remove=15    
-    Which new policies have been introduced with Internet Explorer 7 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=64&remove=32  
-    Which new policies have been introduced with Internet Explorer 8 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=128&remove=96     
-    Which new policies have been introduced with Internet Explorer 9 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=2048&remove=224 
-    Which new policies have been introduced with Internet Explorer 10 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=32768&remove=2272 
-    Which policies are available for Windows XP but no longer for Windows Vista => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=2&remove=1030    
-    Which policies are available for Windows XP but no longer for Windows 7 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=2&remove=1034 
-    Which policies are available for Windows Vista but no longer for Windows 7 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=1030&remove=1034    
-    Which policies are available for IE6  but no longer for IE7/8 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=32&remove=160    
-    Which policies are available for IE7 but no longer for IE8 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=64&remove=128
-    Which policies are only available in HKLM for IE8 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=131200&remove=65664    
-    Which policies are only available in HKCU for IE8 => http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/gps/rss.ashx?supportedon=65664&remove=131200
