SYNTAX

SearchByName (Default)

Get-CMConfigurationItem [[-Name] <String>] [-Fast] [-DisableWildcardHandling] [-ForceWildcardHandling]

 [<CommonParameters>]

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.
