Get-BrokerGpoPolicy [-BlobGuid <Guid>] [-ReturnTotalRecordCount] [-MaxRecordCount <Int32>] [-Skip <Int32>] [-SortBy <String>] [-Filter <String>] [-FilterScope <Guid>] [-Property <String[]>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-TraceParent <String>] [-TraceState <String>] [-VirtualSiteId <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

Retrieve GPO policies matching the specified criteria. If no parameters are specified this cmdlet enumerates all GPO policies.

A GPO policy contains settings that control VDA behaviors.

Brokergpopolicy Object

A GPO policy object is a collection of VDA configurations that control how a VDA should behave. The filters in a policy object are used to determine which VDAs are to be enforced with the specified configuration settings. Policy priorities determine how the policies should be applied together.

  • BlobGuid (System.Guid?) The ID of the configuration blob that contains this policy.

  • Description (System.String) A short description.

  • IsEnabled (System.Boolean) Specifies whether the policy is enabled. A disabled policy is not used to enforce its settings by VDAs.

  • IsReadOnly (System.Boolean) Indicates if the policy is readonly. Readonly policies are built-in objects. All user created policies are read-write.

  • PolicyGuid (System.Guid) The ID of the policy object.

  • PolicyName (System.String) The name of the policy object. Names for each policy object must be unique in a configuration blob.

  • Priority (System.Int32) Specifies the priority of this policy among all the other policies in the blob that contains this policy. The value is 1-based and the maximal value is the number of policies in the blob.


Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
PolicyGuid Gets only the policy object with the specified ID. true false  
BlobGuid Gets only the policies in the specified blob. false false  
ReturnTotalRecordCount When specified, this causes the cmdlet to output an error record containing the number of records available. This error record is additional information and does not affect the objects written to the output pipeline. See about_Broker_Filtering for details. false false False
MaxRecordCount Specifies the maximum number of records to return. false false 250
Skip Skips the specified number of records before returning results. Also reduces the count returned by -ReturnTotalRecordCount. false false 0
SortBy Sorts the results by the specified list of properties. The list is a set of property names separated by commas, semi-colons, or spaces. Optionally, prefix each name with a + or - to indicate ascending or descending order. Ascending order is assumed if no prefix is present. false false The default sort order is by name or unique identifier.
Filter Gets records that match a PowerShell style filter expression. See about_Broker_Filtering for details. false false  
FilterScope Gets only results allowed by the specified scope id. false false  
Property Specifies the properties to be returned. This is similar to piping the output of the command through Select-Object, but the properties are filtered more efficiently at the server. false false  
AdminAddress Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller that the PowerShell snapin will connect to. This can be provided as a host name or an IP address. false false Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value will become the default.
BearerToken Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user false false  
TraceParent Specifies the trace parent assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false  
TraceState Specifies the trace state assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false  
VirtualSiteId Specifies the virtual site the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. false false
