Get-SCOMGroup

Gets Operations Manager groups.

Syntax

Get-SCOMGroup [-DisplayName] <String[]> [-ComputerName <String[]>] [-Credential <PSCredential>]
 [-SCSession <Connection[]>] [<CommonParameters>]
Get-SCOMGroup [-Id] <Guid[]> [-ComputerName <String[]>] [-Credential <PSCredential>]
 [-SCSession <Connection[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-SCOMGroup cmdlet gets System Center 2016 - Operations Manager groups. You can specify which groups to get by name or ID.

Because a group object is a type of class instance object, it can be passed to the Instance parameter of another cmdlet, such as the Enable-SCOMDiscovery cmdlet.

By default, this cmdlet uses the active persistent connection to a management group. Use the SCSession parameter to specify a different persistent connection. You can create a temporary connection to a management group by using the ComputerName and Credential parameters. For more information, type Get-Help about_OpsMgr_Connections.

Examples

Example 1: Get groups by using display names

PS C:\>Get-SCOMGroup -DisplayName "*Agent*","*Windows*"

This command gets all groups that have a display name that includes Agent and all groups that have a display name that includes Windows.

Example 2: Get a group by using an ID

PS C:\>Get-SCOMGroup -Id 7413b06b-a95b-4ae3-98f2-dac9ff76dabd

This command gets the group that has an Id of 7413b06b-a95b-4ae3-98f2-dac9ff76dabd.
