Merge multiple Collections RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are pushing CM Client to multiple device collections that each has various query based membership rules.

    Is there a way to combine all these query membership rules into one single master collection so we can have fewer device collections?

    Thank you,

    Mihai

  • Basically yes. One way is using the "Include Collection" rules (can be found in the properties of a collection, membership rules tab).

  • We cannot use "Include collection" because we intend to delete the many collections we are using now after the Master Single collection is ready.

    Our purpose is to cleanup the many collections we have by merging them in less numbers.

  • The you have to examine the WQL queries for each collection and add them to the new/resulting collection.

  • yeah that would be very cumbersome...

    Isn't there a way to do this in powershell?

  • Almost everything can be done in Powershell, but I am not aware of a ready-to-use script that would do that task for you.
