Detailed Description

This cmdlet creates an SPBM rule in the client side.

There are two types of rules - capability-based rules and tag-based rules.

To create a capability-based rule, perform the following steps:
1. Select an available schema namespace. To get all available schema namespaces, run Get-SpbmCapability | select Namespace -unique.
2. Choose a capability ID within the selected schema namespace by using the Get-SpbmCapability cmdlet.
3. Provide a value for the selected Capability. It can be either a scalar value or a range of values.

To create a tag-based rule set, you must select at least one tag. If you select multiple tags, all specified tags should be of the same tag category. To see all available tags, run the Get-Tag cmdlet. You can use the Get-TagCategory and Get-Tag cmdlets to find a specific tag object.

Parameters
