DESCRIPTION

The Add-CMDeviceCollectionQueryMembershipRule cmdlet adds a rule that adds devices to the collections based on a query. You can specify the device collections by names, IDs, or an object that represents the collections. The query is specified as a text string.

A query rule lets you dynamically update the members of a collection based on a query that is run on a schedule. For more information on collection rules in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, see Introduction to Collections in Configuration Manager on TechNet.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Add a query membership rule

PS C:\>Add-CMDeviceCollectionQueryMembershipRule -CollectionName "Mobile Windows 7 Devices" -QueryExpression "select SMS_R_System.ResourceId, SMS_R_System.ResourceType, SMS_R_System.Name, SMS_R_System.SMSUniqueIdentifier, SMS_R_System.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup, SMS_R_System.Client from  SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_TPM on SMS_G_System_TPM.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId" -RuleName "TPM Information"

This command adds a membership rule named TPM Information to the device collection named Mobile Windows 7 Devices. The QueryExpression parameter specifies the query that defines the membership rule.
