Detailed Description

Get the list of commands queued for delivery to a desktop. Commands are batched and can be configured to be delivered at various times during a desktop session's lifetime. Normally commands are sent within a few minutes of being queued, but it is also possible to queue a command for a user who is not currently logged on or a desktop that is currently switched off.

See about_Broker_Filtering for information about advanced filtering options.

Parameters

Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
Uid Get only the command with the specified unique identifier. true false
Category Get only commands targeted to the specified service category. false false
CommandName Get only commands with the specified command name. false false
CompletionTime Get only commands that entered the Sent, Failed, Canceled or Expired state at the specified time. false false
MachineName Get only commands targeted to the specified machine. false false
MachineUid Get only commands targeted to the specified machine. 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".
false false
RequestTime Get only commands that were requested at the specified time. false false
SendDeadline Get only commands that expire after the specified time span. false false
SendDeadlineTime Get only commands that have the specified deadline time. false false
SendTrigger Get only commands that are due to be sent when the specified trigger occurs. Valid values are NextContact, Broker, LogOn, Logoff, Disconnect and Reconnect. false false
SessionUid Get only commands targeted to the specified session. false false
State Get only commands in the specified state. Valid values are Pending, Sent, Failed, Canceled and Expired. false false
User Get only commands targeted to the specified user. 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

BearerToken Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user false false
