Working with System Center Configurations Manager 2012, I had to list the ID of a folder to use for our Pre-stage HTA Solution.

so I thought a PowerShell function for listen this folder info and collections would be a nice tool to have.

So I ended up writing a complete PS function that includes help and pipeline binding.

To use the script start by loading the function into memory but running the script (dot sourced).

Navigate to the folder where the script is located

. .\Get-CollectionsInDeviceFolder.ps1

 

To Get Help for the function use the builtin help:

Get-Help Get-CollectionsInDeviceFolder -Full
