Examples

Example 1: Display the first three defined views

PS C:\>Get-SCSMView | Select-Object -First 3
Name                                                                          Description
----                                                                          -----------
System.WorkItem.Incident.Queue.Tier2.Unassigned.View                          Lists tier 2 open unassigned incidents
AllSoftwareUpdatesView                                                        Lists all software updates
ChangeManagement.Views.ChangeRequestsCancelled                                Lists all canceled change requests

This command retrieves all of the views. The command uses the Select-Object cmdlet to return only the first three views that are defined in Service Manager.

Example 2: Get the View object

PS C:\>Get-SCSMView -Name "System.WorkItem.Incident.Queue.Tier2.Unassigned.View"
Name                                                                          Description
----                                                                          -----------
System.WorkItem.Incident.Queue.Tier2.Unassigned.View                          Lists tier 2 open unassigned incidents

This command retrieves the View object.

Example 3: Get the management pack for the View

PS C:\>$View = Get-SCSMView -Name "System.WorkItem.Incident.Queue.Tier2.Unassigned.View"
PS C:\> $View.GetManagementPack()
Sealed   Name                                 DisplayName

------   ----                                 -----------

False    ServiceManager.IncidentManagement.Co Service Manager Incident Management

         nfiguration                          Configuration Library

The first command retrieves the View object, and then stores it in the $View variable.

The second command retrieves the management pack in which the View object is defined.
