Description

The New-CMDeviceCollectionVariable cmdlet creates a device collection variable. You can use a device collection variable to define custom task sequence variables and their associated values to be used by the resources in a collection. Task sequence variables are a set of name and value pairs that provide a mechanism to configure and customize the steps of a task sequence when the task sequence is deployed to a specific collection.

Examples

Example 1: Create a device collection variable

PS C:\> $Collection = Get-CMCollection -Name "Device"
PS C:\> New-CMDeviceCollectionVariable -Collection $Collection -VariableName "testTS" -Value "test001"

The first command gets the device collection object named Device and stores the object in the $Collection variable.

The second command creates a collection variable named testTS with the value test001 for the collection object stored in $Collection.
