Delete a System Defense Policy

The following steps describe how to delete a specific filter.

1.  Enumerate the instances of AMT_SystemDefensePolicy.

2.  Examine the items returned by the enumerate method and search for the relevant value of the desired property. For example, to delete all policies with the name “MyPolicy”, search for the  “MyPolicy” value in the property PolicyName.

3.  Invoke the Delete method on the instance.


Filters that were attached to this policy can now be deleted.

# The relevant value of the property that was used to discover the desired policy.

$policyName ="MyPolicy"

$systemDefensePolicyRef =$wsmanConnectionObject.NewReference("AMT_SystemDefensePolicy")

foreach($systemDefensePolicyItem in$systemDefensePolicyRef.Enumerate())


    $systemDefensePolicyRef =$systemDefensePolicyItem.Object.ToReference("InstanceID")

    $systemDefensePolicyInstance =$systemDefensePolicyRef.Get()

    if($systemDefensePolicyInstance.GetProperty("PolicyName") -like $policyName)







Additional Information

The AMT_SystemDefensePolicy.Delete method deletes all instances of AMT_FilterInSystemDefensePolicy associated to the policy, and the AMT_NetworkFilters that were created using the AMT_SystemDefensePolicy.Create method. In addition, if the policy statistics were updated (see Update Policy Statistics) after the creation of the policy, all the instances of AMT_ActiveFilterStatsitics that were created are also deleted.
