Alert on new windows update available

Hello there,

I have an idea of creating a watcher that sends me a mail when a new windows update is detected by the windows update service on a specific server. I already tried to find something with winlogbeat but i didnt find what i was searching for.
Do you guys have any idea on how i could find update messages in my log to filter on it in my watcher alert ?

Thank you in advance.

I'm not sure you will get this through an eventlog. You may have better luck using filebeat and the windows update log files
