How to do a Custom Inventory to get the Bitlocker key


I'm new to SMA. Does anyone know how to get the custom inventory to store the Bitlocker key protector information’s in our SMA device inventory? I was able to enable to run the PowerShell command which enabled Bitlocker and encryption.

Any help will be appreciated.

  • Thank you. This is the exact way that we want to do. But I have a problem to pull the key back to KBOX. The custom inventory does not pull anything. Do you have any idea? - pamzhao 1 year ago
    • Hi Pamzhao,
      can you share what the output looks like if you run the "manage-bde -protectors C: -get" command in a cmd? - Timokirch 1 year ago
      • Thank you for your reply. I finally got my script working. What I missed here is that I have created the Customer Software, but I didn't install and distribute on a computer. Once I installed to a computer, it automatically inventories the rest of the computer. - pamzhao 1 year ago

Always think at first how to get the info via CLI.
As soon as you know this you can cast it into a custom inventory rule.

In that example you can do it like that:
ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c manage-bde -protectors C: -get)

  • I created the custom inventory rule in Software, but somehow it does not pull any information. Total Deployed is 0 on the bottom. Did I do this right? - pamzhao 1 year ago
