Add-CMDeviceAffinityToUser

Updated: September 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1

Add-CMDeviceAffinityToUser

Adds device affinity to a Configuration Manager user.

Syntax

Parameter Set: AddDeviceAffinityByUserName
Add-CMDeviceAffinityToUser -UserName <String[]> [-DeviceId <String> ] [-DeviceName <String> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: AddDeviceAffinityByUserId
Add-CMDeviceAffinityToUser -UserId <String> [-DeviceId <String> ] [-DeviceName <String> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-CMDeviceAffinityToUser cmdlet adds device affinity to a user of Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.

Device affinity in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager associates a user with one or more devices. Instead of deploying applications to all the user’s devices, you deploy the application to the user and System Center 2012 Configuration Manager automatically installs the application on all devices that are associated with that user. Device affinity removes the need for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager to determine the names of the user’s devices before you deploy applications for that user.

For more information about user device affinity, see How to Manage User Device Affinity in Configuration Manager on TechNet.
