    Hi, @golden alick

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Yes, you can trigger Configuration Manager client actions with PowerShell. The Invoke-CMClientAction cmdlet can be used to invoke client actions on Configuration Manager clients. Here's an example of how to use it to trigger a machine policy retrieval and evaluation cycle:

    Invoke-CMClientAction -DeviceName "Computer01" -Action MachinePolicyRetrievalEvalCycle

    Replace "Computer01" with the name of the device you want to trigger the action on. You can also use the -CollectionName parameter to trigger the action on all devices in a collection.

    Other available actions include UserPolicyRetrievalEvalCycle, SoftwareInventoryCycle, HardwareInventoryCycle, DiscoveryDataCollectionCycle, and more. You can find a full list of available actions in the Microsoft documentation.
