Examples

Example 1: Create a workflow for manual activity creation

The first command gets a template named DefaultManualActivityTemplate by using the Get-SCSMObjectTemplate cmdlet. The command stores the template in the $Template variable.

The second command creates an array of notifications as hash tables, and stores them in the $Notification variable.

The final command creates a workflow which can be used when a manual activity is created. Because the script specifies no criteria, this workflow applies to any creation of a manual activity.


PS C:\>$Template = Get-SCSMObjectTemplate -Name "DefaultManualActivityTemplate"
PS C:\> $Notification = @{ User = "Reviewers"; Template = Get-SCSMObjectTemplate -Name "AssignedToUserNotificationTemplate" },@{ User = "Affected User"; Template = Get-SCSMObjectTemplate -Name DefaultReviewActivityTemplate }
PS C:\> New-SCSMWorkflow -DisplayName "Manual activity workflow 07" -Class "ManualActivity" -Description "Contoso workflow 07." -Enable $True -Event Create -Notification $Notification -Template $Template

Example 2: Create a workflow for manual activity creation for a user

The first command creates a criteria string defined for the manual activity to select only those manual activities that were created by the user Evan Narvaez. The command stores those criteria in the $CriteriaString variable.

The second command gets the management pack named Workflows by using the Get-SCSMManagementPack cmdlet, and then stores it in the $ManagementPack variable. A subsequent command uses this value to specify where to save the workflow. This must not be a sealed management pack.

The third command gets a template named DefaultManualActivityTemplate by using the Get-SCSMObjectTemplate cmdlet. The command stores the template in the $Template variable.

The fourth command creates an array of notifications as hash tables, and stores them in the $Notification variable.

The final command creates a workflow which can be used when a manual activity is created.
