New-CMConfigurationItem

Creates a configuration item.

Syntax

Detailed Description

The New-CMConfigurationItem cmdlet creates a configuration item in Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. Create configuration items to define configurations that you want to manage and assess for compliance on devices.

You can specify the ParentConfigurationItem parameter to create a child configuration item. Child configuration items in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager are copies of configuration items that retain a relationship to the original configuration item; therefore, they inherit the original configuration from the parent configuration item. You cannot create child configuration items for mobile devices.

Specifies an array of localized names of the categories to which the configuration item belongs.
