I'm not sure I understand what you're looking for. Do you want to do this via script or the UI?

I use SMLets to automate creating Incident in my organization with custom application (based on this cmdlets for SCSM)

I need add computer info to incident via script -> in UI computer information in incident stored in Affected Item field

Essentially, you need the System.WorkItemAboutConfigItem relationship and the incident computer you want to add. After you have those three things, you can create the relationship and you'll be done!

Here's an example: 

$incident     = get-scsmclass m.incident$ |get-scsmobject -filter "DisplayName -eq 'CustomIR194'"
$computer     = get-scsmclass Microsoft.Windows.Computer$|get-scsmobject -filter "PrincipalName -eq ''"
$relationship = Get-SCSMRelationshipClass -name System.WorkItemAboutConfigItem
New-SCSMRelationshipObject -Relationship $relationship -Source $incident -Target $computer -bulk

after you run this script, the computer should be present (you'll have to find your own incident and computer, of course). You can do this for any number of computers/incidents
