How to create content organizer rules and configure these rules with the help of PowerShell.I have created a Record Center site collection using OFFILE#0 as template name and with the help of PowerShell with a dedicated content db.But I am not able to get the APIs used for implementing routing and content organizer rules in record center with the help of PowerShell.

Following is an example of simple routing rule creating in record center which routes the Content Type “Document” to the /Records/Records Library.

$mainURL = "URL"
$RecordCenterURL = "RECCENURL"
$web = New-SPWeb $RecordCenterURL -Template "OFFILE#1"   -AddToTopNav

Now, here is the chunk of code to Create the Content Organizer Rule.

Write-Host -ForegroundColor White " – Creating the Supporting Documents  Content Organizer Rule …" -NoNewline
 [Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite]$site = Get-SPSite $mainurl
[Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb]$web = Get-SPWeb $RecordCenterURL
[Microsoft.SharePoint.SPContentType]$ct = $site.RootWeb.ContentTypes["Document"]
[Microsoft.Office.RecordsManagement.RecordsRepository.EcmDocumentRouterRule]$rule = New-Object Microsoft.Office.RecordsManagement.RecordsRepository.EcmDocumentRouterRule($web)
$rule.ConditionsString = ""
$rule.CustomRouter = ""
$rule.Name = "Supporting Documents Rule"
$rule.Description = "Routes '" + $ct.Name + "' documents to the records library"
$rule.ContentTypeString = $ct.Name
$rule.RouteToExternalLocation = $false
$rule.Priority = "5"
$rule.TargetPath = "/Records/Records"
$rule.Enabled = $true
Write-Host -ForegroundColor GREEN "Done."
