Description

The Get-CMConfigurationItem cmdlet gets configuration item objects in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. You can use this cmdlet to get items for other cmdlets to use. For instance, you might get configuration items so you can use the Set-CMConfigurationItem to change settings on them.

Configuration items contain one or more settings, along with compliance rules. For more information about configuration items, see Introduction to Compliance Settings in Configuration Manager on TechNet.

Examples

Example 1: Get an item using a name

PS C:\> Get-CMConfigurationItem -Name "ConfigItem76"

This command gets a configuration item named ConfigItem76.

Example 2: Get an item to use with another cmdlet

PS C:\> $CIObj=Get-CMConfigurationItem -Id "16777568"
PS C:\> Remove-CMConfigurationItem -InputObject $CIObj

The first command gets a configuration item with the specified identifier and stores it in the $CIObj variable.

The second command removes the item in the $CIObj variable.

Parameters

-DisableWildcardHandling

DisableWildcardHandling treats wildcard characters as literal character values. Cannot be combined with ForceWildcardHandling.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Fast

Indicates that the cmdlet does not automatically refresh lazy properties.

Lazy properties contain values that are relatively inefficient to retrieve which can cause additional network traffic and decrease cmdlet performance. If lazy properties are not needed, this parameter should be specified.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ForceWildcardHandling

ForceWildcardHandling processes wildcard characters and may lead to unexpected behavior (not recommended). Cannot be combined with DisableWildcardHandling.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Id

Specifies an array of identifiers for one or more configuration items. You can use a comma separated list.

Type:Int32
Aliases:CIId, CI_ID
Position:0
Default value:None

-Name

Specifies an array of names of configuration items. You can use a comma separated list.
