    Hi @Adam_Stoppa

    Your PowerShell is not the most efficient method but will certainly work and get you the asset history so nice work.

    The first History item will show you who created it. However, you must consider that SCSM doesn't keep all history for all time. The default is to keep 1 year of history and this is configurable in the data retention settings. Once history has been groomed, there is no way to tell who created the asset.

    Hi, i have a similary problem does someone has an idea ?

    i need the history from a hardware asset, special i am looking for who has added a certain asset, is there a way to find out ?

    so far i have tried the following in powershell:

    $HWClass = Get-SCSMClass -name Cireson.AssetManagement.HardwareAsset

    $HWList=Get-SCSMObject -computername $scsmserver -Class $HWClass

    foreach($hw in $hwlist){

      if($hw.HardwareAssetID -eq "2020080093")

     {

        Write-Output $hw.HardwareAssetID

        Write-Output $result = Get-SCSMObjectHistory

    }

    }

    But Get-SCSMObjectHistory does not show who has added the asset.
