Hi Guys,

I ‘am using your amazing PKI module it's very useful, excellent work :)

My Problem is, that I have certificates which implements the Friendlyname column, which isn’t listed in the CA-Schema.


Is there any way to filter certificates by their friendlyname ?

My command looks like this:

import-Module PKI
Get-CertificationAuthority -Name CA-Name| Get-IssuedRequest -Filter "FriendlyName-eq certificatesFriendlyName" 
Thanks for yor help.

Unfortunately it is not possible. 'Friendly Name' property exists only in certificate store. This means that only local certificate store, where the certificate resides, can attach additional properties (including friendly name) to certificate.

Hey Camelot,

thanks for your quick reply.

Too bad that this property is only available for local certificates.

Kind regards
