My company has a large number of orgs that we need/want to be able to manage the status of Critical Updates across. Ideally, we'd like to be able to do this using some kind of script or CLI so our DevOps team can automate it. In order to do this, it would be necessary to have some kind of programmatic access to Critical Updates, either as some kind of metadata objects or sObjects.
I also found this "Idea", which implies that at least the asker (and voters) do not know of a way to do this, but maybe there's something they don't know:
My question, then: Is there any way to programmatically access, via query or any sort of API, the status and/or details of the current Critical Updates in any given org?
