Hi!

Im working on some scripting with "Get-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRule" & "New-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRule" and ran into some problem when trying to figure out how to copy "UpdateClassification" & "Severity" properites from one rule to the next.

When you use the Get-cmdlt you would be returned the follwing values for eg Severity:

'10'
'8'
'2'
'6'
'0'

And for "_UpdateClassification":
<string>'UpdateClassification:e6cf1350-c01b-414d-a61f-263d14d133b4'</string>
<string>'UpdateClassification:e0789628-ce08-4437-be74-2495b842f43b'</string>
<string>'UpdateClassification:0fa1201d-4330-4fa8-8ae9-b877473b6441'</string>
<string>'UpdateClassification:68c5b0a3-d1a6-4553-ae49-01d3a7827828'</string>

When you use "New"-Cmdlet these properties needs to be specified as strings, eg "Critical" for severity, and "Critical Updated" for _UpdateClassification.

Just thought i would check if there is some easy way to "convert" these into a usable stringvalue to be used with "New-", like you can do with "_Products" (Using the ID returned with "Get-CMSoftwareUpdateCategory" to get the ProductName) or do i just have to start working on some more code to get this done ^^

Thank you,
Best regards!

    Hi @Love Arvidsson ,

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    To this issue, we could set these properties as variables, and fill in the variables in the new rule.

    For example,

    $a = ((get-cmdlt).property1).tostring()  
    $b = ((get-cmdlt).property2).tostring()  
      
    new-cmdlet -para1 $a, -para2 $b, -para3 "abc", -para4 $false  
    

    For more information about use new-cmdlet to create an automatic deployment rule (ADR) for software updates, please refer to:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/configurationmanager/new-cmsoftwareupdateautodeploymentrule?view=sccm-ps
    We could find some examples in this link and use them as references.

    Hope the above information can help you.
