Create a Custom Detection Script for Delinea Connection Manager (PowerShell)


Microsoft Endpoint Manager Configuration Manager (MEMCM / SCCM) and Microsoft Intune use Detection Rules to determine the presence of Applications & Win32 Apps. The detection rules ensure that application installations only begin to run if the application is not already installed on the device. This article will serve as an informative guide and give you a clear understanding of how to create an updated custom detection script for each new version of Delinea Connection Manager using PowerShell.

How to Create a Custom Detection Script for Delinea Connection Manager

Delinea Connection Manager (File Detection Method)

## Check for Delinea Connection Manager (File Detection Method)
$ConnectionManagerExe = (Get-ChildItem -Path "C:\Program Files\Delinea\Delinea Connection Manager\Delinea.ConnectionManager.exe" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue)
$ConnectionManagerExe.FullName
$ConnectionManagerPath = $($ConnectionManagerExe.FullName).Replace("C:\Program Files\","")
$FileVersion = (Get-Item -Path "$($ConnectionManagerExe.FullName)" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue).VersionInfo.FileVersion

## Create Text File with Delinea Connection Manager File Detection Method
$FilePath = "C:\Windows\Temp\Delinea_Connection_Manager_Detection_Method.txt"
New-Item -Path "$FilePath" -Force
Set-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "If([String](Get-Item -Path `"`$Env:ProgramFiles\$ConnectionManagerPath`" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue).VersionInfo.FileVersion -ge `"$FileVersion`"){"
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "Write-Host `"Installed`""
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "Exit 0"
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "}"
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "else {"
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "Exit 1"
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "}"
Invoke-Item $FilePath
  • Click Run Script (F5)
  • A text file will open with the Delinea Connection Manager Detection Method script required to detect the current version of Delinea Connection Manager that is installed on the device you are running the script from.

Example:

If([String](Get-Item -Path "$Env:ProgramFiles\Delinea\Delinea Connection Manager\Delinea.ConnectionManager.exe" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue).VersionInfo.FileVersion -ge "1.9.2.0"){
Write-Host "Installed"
Exit 0
}
else {
Exit 1
}

$ConnectionManager.DisplayVersion
$ConnectionManager.PSChildName

## Create Text File with Delinea Connection Manager Registry Detection Method
$FilePath = "C:\Windows\Temp\Delinea_Connection_Manager_Detection_Method.txt"
New-Item -Path "$FilePath" -Force
Set-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "If([Version](Get-ItemPropertyValue -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\$($ConnectionManager.PSChildName)' -Name DisplayVersion -ea SilentlyContinue) -ge '$($ConnectionManager.DisplayVersion)') {"
Add-Content -Path "$FilePath" -Value "Write-Host `"Installed`""
