Detailed Description

The New-CMUserCollection cmdlet creates a collection based on a specific limiting collection. The limiting collection determines which users can be a member of the user collection that you create. For example, when you use the All Users collection as the limiting collection, the new collection can include any user in the Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager hierarchy. You specify the limiting collection by providing its name or ID.

Users are added to the collection by membership rules. To add members to the user collection use one of the following membership rule cmdlets:

-- Add-CMUserCollectionDirectMembershipRule
-- Add-CMUserCollectionExcludeMembershipRule
-- Add-CMUserCollectionIncludeMembershipRule
-- Add-CMDeviceCollectionQueryMembershipRule

Collections represent logical groupings of resources, such as users and devices. For more information about Configuration Manager collections, see Introduction to Collections in Configuration Manager (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=259433) in the TechNet library.
