Create backup jobs based on SCVMM tag via powershell

Feature Request
Create backup jobs based on SCVMM tag via Powershell.

Probably it would be sufficient to expand Find-VBRHvEntity to also be able to return tags and add this to the backup job via Add-VBRHvJobObject.

Is there any workaround to create backup jobs based on SCVMM-tags in an automated way?

Using SCVMM PowerShell, you should be able to get VMs with corresponding tag assigned. After that, based on the results you got, you will find these VMs, using FInd-VBRHvEntity, and pass the resulting list to Add-VBRHvJobObject. Thanks.

That's indeed the workaround I used now, but it would be far easier if we could use SCVMM tag as an entity, so that's why I created this as a feature request.
