Summary: Learn how to discover the parameters for a method in a CIM class.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I find the parameters of a CIM class method, such as GetStringValue in the StdRegprov class?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use Get-CimClass to get the class:

$class = Get-CimClass -ClassName StdRegProv

To view the methods:

$class.CimClassMethods

To view the parameters of a particular method:

$class.CimClassMethods[“GetStringValue”].Parameters

You will see the parameter name and data type. The qualifiers will tell you if it’s an input or output parameter.
