How to add a Requirement, Dependency, Supersedence for a Deployment Type using the SCCM cmdlets?


  • Is there any SCCM cmdlets to add Deployment Type properties like Requirement, Dependencies, Supersedence etc.,

    For the rest of the properties we have the cmdlet “Set-CMDeploymentType”, but how do we add a Requirement or a Dependency using the SCCM cmdlets?

  • Easy Answer: You don't - The cmdlets are still pretty beta if you ask me. There is a lot of room for improvement.

    However, you are able to mess with that stuff using PowerShell. (Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.ApplicationManagement Namespace) should be a good starting point. Specifically the "DeploymentType" Class.

    It's a bit different than using cmdlets but once you grasp the concept it's pretty easy.

    Hope that helps.

  • I've done a series of blog posts on how to use the Application Management SDK covering some of these concepts. See for more information.

    And as always, if there's something that's not supported by the PowerShell cmdlets that you want to see added, please file a feedback item on Connect at
