PS C:\>Get-Gpo -Name "TSQA Group policies" | Add-ControlledGpo -PassThru

Comment         :

This command uses the Get-Gpo cmdlet to get the uncontrolled GPO named TSQA Group policies. For more information, type Get-Help Get-Gpo. The command passes that GPO to the current cmdlet. This cmdlet adds that GPO to the AGPM archive.

Example 2: Add a GPO by using a variable

PS C:\>$GpoObject = Get-Gpo -Name "TSQA Group policies"
PS C:\> Add-ControlledGpo -Gpos $GpoObject -PassThru
Name            : TSQA Group policies
ID              : {5507363B-6AEB-4EFF-89FD-1567CD1E14E5}
CheckoutID      : 
BackupID        : {70D90CA2-E396-4549-A2C9-18EED518F6F1}
State           : CHECKED_IN

Comment         :

The first command uses Get-Gpo to get the uncontrolled GPO named TSQA Group policies, and then stores that object in the $GpoObject variable.

The second command adds the object stored in $GpoObject to the AGPM archive.
