Check out an object

Use this command to check out an object so you can work on it. A check out is required on any workflow enabled object before you can edit it.

Select-Checkout [-VCData] <VersionControlledData> [[-Comment] <String>] [-PipelineVariable <String>] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]

$GPO = Get-Item "IE Settings"

Select-CheckOut $GPO

The Get-Item command identifies the object to check out. In this case, IE Settings is the GPO that is checked out and available to work on.

Check in an object

Once an object has been checked and worked on, it can be checked back in to the version control system.

Select-CheckIn [-VCData] <VersionControlledData> [[-Comment] <String>] [-PipelineVariable <String>] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]

$GPO = Get-Item "IE Settings"

Select-CheckIn $GPO

The Get-Item command identifies the object to check in. In this case, IE Settings is the GPO to check back in after having worked on it.

Undo the check out of an object

If you have an object checked out and realize that you do not need to work on it, do not want to save your changes, or have checked out the wrong object, you can undo the checkout. This checks the object back into the Version Controlled Root and disregard any changes.

Select-UndoCheckout [-VCData] <VersionControlledData> [[-Comment] <String>] [-PipelineVariable <String>] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]

$GPO = Get-Item "IE Settings"

Select-UndoCheckout $GPO

The Get-Item command identifies which object to undo the check out for. In this case, IE Settings is the GPO you want to check back in and set back to its original condition without any changes.

Request approval for changes

When an object has workflow enabled it may require approvals to commit the changes and eventually deploy the object. To get this approval for changes, a request needs to be made to the approval authority.

Select-RequestApproval [-VCData] <VersionControlledData> [[-Comment] <String>] [-PipelineVariable <String>] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]

$GPO = Get-Item "IE Settings"

Select-RequestApproval $GPO

The Get-Item command identifies the object for which the approval is requested. In this case, IE Settings is the GPO you want to get approval for because of the changes that have been made.
