    Using a Windows Powershell Monitor result to change a custom field


      So we have a program called Chef that manages our configurations. While we have a list of these servers, I would like to automate which servers do and do not have chef installed, adjust a custom field called Chef_Managed, then have the Chef alerts applied to them. I have the automation set up to apply out alerts to anything with Chef_Managed = Yes. I just need to know how to use the powershell output from the below code change that field


      $installed = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Product | sort-object Name | select Name | where { $_.Name -match “Chef Client”}

      if($installed.name -like "*Chef*"){

      $Managed = "True"




      $Managed = "False"




      Write-Output "Chef Managed status $Managed"
