Description

The Remove-CMDeviceCollectionVariable cmdlet removes a device collection variable.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a device collection variable

PS C:\> $Collection = Get-CMCollection -Name "Device" 
PS C:\> Remove-CMDeviceCollectionVariable -Collection $Collection -VariableName "testTS" -Force

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

The second command removes the device collection variable named testTS from the device collection stored in $Collection. Specifying the Force parameter indicates that the user is not prompted before the variable is removed.

Example 2: Remove a device collection variable by using the pipeline

PS C:\> Get-CMCollection -Name "Device" | Remove-CMDeviceCollectionVariable -VariableName "testTS" -Force

This command gets the device collection object named Device and uses the pipeline operator to pass the object to Remove-CMDeviceCollectionVariable, which removes the device collection variable named testTS from the device collection object. Specifying the Force parameter indicates that the user is not prompted before the variable is removed.
