Get-ProvTask [[-TaskId] <Guid>] [-Type <JobType>] [-Active <Boolean>] [-Metadata <String>] [-Property <String>] [-ReturnTotalRecordCount] [-MaxRecordCount <Int32>] [-Skip <Int32>] [-SortBy <String>] [-Filter <String>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-VirtualSiteId <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]
Returns a list of tasks that have run or are currently running within the MachineCreation Service.
|Name||Description||Required?||Pipeline Input||Default Value|
|TaskId||Specifies the task identifier to be returned.||false||false|
|Type||Specifies the type of task to be returned.||false||false|
|Active||Specifies whether currently running tasks only or completed tasks only are returned.||false||false|
|Metadata||Gets records with matching metadata entries.
The value being compared with is a concatenation of the key name, a colon, and the value. For example: -Metadata "abc:x*" matches records with a metadata entry having a key name of "abc" and a value starting with the letter "x".
|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|
|ReturnTotalRecordCount||When specified, the cmdlet outputs 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_Prov_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_Prov_Filtering for details.||false||false|
|BearerToken||Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user||false||false|
|VirtualSiteId||Specifies the virtual site the PowerShell snap-in will connect to.||false||false|
|AdminAddress||Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. You can provide this as a host name or an IP address.||false||false||Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value becomes the default.|
