Using the GPOADmin PowerShell commands (Examples)

The following examples show how to apply PowerShell commands to perform many of the GPOADmin functions. The commands are especially beneficial in environments where repetitive processes are required.

Example commands are included for the following:

The ability to use a command is related to the role and user running it. For example, if the user has the User role then the commands they can run are limited to the actions associated with the s assigned to this role. This ensures that workflow, security, and protection are maintained with the commands.

For details on what is available for each role, see Configuring role-based delegation.

Before you can use the examples, you must ensure that you have registered the commands. See Registering the GPOADmin PowerShell commands .

Loading the GPOADmin modules

Rather than having to remember the module names each time you want to run a command, you can use the following simplify the process.

Extracting help for GPOADmin commands

The following code first gets all the GPOADmin commands, then creates an output file. The Get-Help command is run for each command with the –Full parameter set to return all help information. Finally, the help is written into the file along with a line used to separate the help for each command. This process continues until all the help is read for the commands.

The examples in this section include GPOADmin commands used for the day-to-day operations required to manage objects.
