$lstSitecoreUsers = Get-User -Filter “sitecore\*”

$lstSitecoreUsers | Where{$_.Name -like “*manager*” } | ForEach-Object  {

Write-Host $_.Name

Write-Host “Item name: ” + $_.Name

}

 

# Update an Item – e.g. Test Items under Home

$item = Get-Item “master:/sitecore/content/Home/Test”

$item.Editing.BeginEdit();
