Hi Keith, I found the startKB url https://support.microsoft.com/app/content/api/content/asset/en-us/4000816 is not updating since oct,2018. By using this script, we can only find the latest CU is October,2018. but cannot find anyone new.
I try to find the json format update history but no luck. could you shed some light please?

Hey Keith, Much like what jm0477 has mentioned above, I too have come across this script recently and noticed that for build 14393 the latest update the startKB url is showing is 8/2018 or KB KB4343887. The Latest Cumulative Update out today is KB4467684 with a build version of 14393.2639

I've tried locating a new API url but am not sure where you found that url. Would you be able to help me out in any way.

I'm looking into automating our image build process and this script along with one for service stacking updates would be crucial to getting the latest updates to slipstream into the iso.
