New-CMDetectionClauseRegistryKey

Create a detection method clause for a registry key.

Syntax

New-CMDetectionClauseRegistryKey
   [-Existence]
   -Hive <RegistryRootKey>
   [-Is64Bit]
   -KeyName <String>
   [-DisableWildcardHandling]
   [-ForceWildcardHandling]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

Use this cmdlet to create a clause in a detection method on an application. This clause is a rule for a registry key to indicate the presence of an application.

To detect a registry value instead of a key, use the New-CMDetectionClauseRegistryKeyValue cmdlet.

After you use this cmdlet, then use one of the Add- or Set- cmdlets for deployment types. Pass this detection clause object to either the AddDetectionClause or RemoveDetectionClause parameters.

To group detection clauses, use the GroupDetectionClauses parameter on the deployment type cmdlets.

Note

Run Configuration Manager cmdlets from the Configuration Manager site drive, for example PS XYZ:\>. For more information, see getting started.

Examples

Example 1: Create multiple clauses for an MSI app deployment type

This example creates two file clauses and one registry clause, and then uses them to add an MSI deployment type to an app.

$cla1=New-CMDetectionClauseFile -FileName "filetest" -PropertyType Size -ExpectedValue 123 -ExpressionOperator IsEquals -Path "C:\" -Value -Is64Bit
$cla2=New-CMDetectionClauseFile -FileName "foldertest" -PropertyType DateCreated -ExpectedValue (Get-Date) -ExpressionOperator LessThan -Path "C:\" -Value
$cla3=New-CMDetectionClauseRegistryKey -Hive ClassesRoot -KeyName "aaa"
$logic1=$cla1.Setting.LogicalName
$logic2=$cla2.Setting.LogicalName
$logic3=$cla3.Setting.LogicalName

Parameters

-DisableWildcardHandling

This parameter treats wildcard characters as literal character values. You can't combine it with ForceWildcardHandling.

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

This parameter is implied and optional.

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

This parameter processes wildcard characters and may lead to unexpected behavior (not recommended). You can't combine it with DisableWildcardHandling.

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

Specify the registry hive where the key exists. Use the KeyName parameter to specify the key name.

Type:RegistryRootKey
Aliases:RegistryHive
Accepted values:ClassesRoot, CurrentConfig, CurrentUser, LocalMachine, Users
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Is64Bit

Add this parameter to indicate that this registry key is associated with a 32-bit application on 64-bit systems.

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

Specify the name of the registry key that must exist to indicate the presence of this application. Use the Hive parameter to specify the registry hive where this key should exist.

Type:String

Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs
