Get-SCUserRole

Gets a VMM user role.

Syntax

Get-SCUserRole [[-Name] <String>] [-ID <Guid>] [-OnBehalfOfUser <String>] [-OnBehalfOfUserRole <UserRole>]
 [-UserRoleProfile <Profile>] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-SCUserRole cmdlet gets one or more Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) user roles. VMM uses role-based security to define the boundaries within which members of a given user role can operate and the set of allowed operations members of a user role can perform.

For information about creating user roles, type Get-Help New-SCUserRole.

For information about setting the properties of a user role, including the scope for delegated and read-only administrators and the scope and actions for self-service users, type Get-Help Set-SCUserRole.

Examples

Example 1: Get all user roles

PS C:\> Get-SCUserRole -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com"

This command gets all VMM user roles on the server named VMMServer01.Contoso.com. The command displays information about each user role.

Example 2: Get a user role by name

PS C:\> Get-SCUserRole -Name "Administrator"

This command gets the user role object named Administrator. The command displays information about that user role.

Example 3: Get a user role by profile

PS C:\> Get-SCUserRole -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" -UserRoleProfile "SelfServiceUser"

This command gets the user roles the server named VMMServer01 that have a user role profile of SelfServiceUser. The command displays information about these user roles.

Example 4: Display properties and other information about user role objects

PS C:\> $UserRoles = Get-SCUserRole -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> $UserRoles | Select-Object -Property Name, UserRoleProfile, ParentUserRole, Cloud
PS C:\> $UserRoles | Get-Member

The first command gets all user role objects on the server named VMMServer01, and then stores those objects in the $UserRoles variable.

The second command passes each user role object in $UserRoles to the Select-Object cmdlet, which then displays the name, user role profile, parent user role, and cloud for each user role

The final command passes each user role in $UserRoles to the Get-Member cmdlet, which displays the .NET type for each user role and the methods and properties associated with each user role type.
