Custom inventory rule for logged in user
I'm trying to create a custom inventory rule to display the contents of %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Outlook. The problem that I am finding is that it is running as the KACE system process and doesn't display the correct information. Any ideas on this one?
Here is my command: ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c dir %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Outlook)

Try this for a CIR, but it will only work if a domain account is in session as far as I can tell.
ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /q /c for /f "tokens=2 delims=\" %a in ('wmic computersystem get username') do for %A in (%a) do if exist "C:\Users\%A\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\." (dir "C:\Users\%A\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook"))

I would recommend creating a script that detects the current logged in user and gathers the data you want then outputs it. You can then have your custom inventory rule run that script. This code will create a user variable for the current logged in user:
for /f "tokens=8" %%a in ('tasklist /v ^|find "explorer.exe"') do (
One caution: If a machine runs an inventory update when a user isn't logged into a computer then this won't return any results and that would interfere with the collection of your data.
