Description

The Set-ADResourceProperty cmdlet can be used to modify a resource property in Active Directory.

Examples

Example 1: Set the suggested values for a resource property

PS C:\> $US = New-Object Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADSuggestedValueEntry("US", "United States of America", "United States of America")
PS C:\> $JP = New-Object Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADSuggestedValueEntry("JP", "Japan", "Japan")
PS C:\> Set-ADResourceProperty -Identity Country -SuggestedValues $US,$JP

This command sets the suggested values of the resource property with display name Country to US and JP. Applications using this resource property would allow their users to specify one of the suggested values as this resource property's value.

Example 2: Set a reference property to use shared values

PS C:\> Set-ADResourceProperty -Identity Country -SharesValuesWith Country

This command sets the resource property with display name Country to reference an existing claim type named Country for its suggested values. This enables the resource property to be always valid for comparisons with the referenced claim type in a central access rule.

Required Parameters

-Identity

Specifies an Active Directory object by providing one of the following property values. The identifier in parentheses is the LDAP display name for the attribute. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • A distinguished name
  • A GUID (objectGUID)

This parameter can also get this object through the pipeline or you can set this parameter to an object instance.

Type:ADResourceProperty
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Instance

Specifies an instance of a resource property object to use as a template for a new resource property object.

You can use an instance of an existing resource property object as a template or you can construct a new resource property object by using the Windows PowerShell command line or by using a script.

Method 1: Use an existing resource property object as a template for a new object. To retrieve an instance of an existing resource property object, use a cmdlet such as Get-ADResourceProperty. Then provide this object to the Instance parameter of the New-ADResourceProperty cmdlet to create a new resource property object. You can override property values of the new object by setting the appropriate parameters.

Method 2: Create a new ADResourceProperty and set the property values by using the Windows PowerShell command line interface. Then pass this object to the Instance parameter of the New-ADResourceProperty cmdlet to create the new resource property object.

Note: Specified attributes are not validated, so attempting to set attributes that do not exist or cannot be set raises an error.

Type:ADResourceProperty
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-Add

Specifies values to add to an object property. Use this parameter to add one or more values to a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To modify an object property, you must use the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) display name. You can specify multiple values to a property by specifying a comma-separated list of values and more than one property by separating them using a semicolon. The format for this parameter is:

-Add @{Attribute1LDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...; Attribute2LDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...; AttributeNLDAPDisplayName=value1, value2, ...}

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace, and Clear parameters together, the operations will be performed in the following order:

  • Remove
  • Add
  • Replace
  • Clear
Type:Hashtable
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-AppliesToResourceTypes

Specifies the list of resource types that this property applies to. For Set-ADResourceProperty operations, you can add or include new resource types within an existing property by specifying them using this parameter. You do not have to specify all previously listed resource types already within this property.

Type:Hashtable
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-AuthType

Specifies the authentication method to use. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Negotiate or 0
  • Basic or 1

The default authentication method is Negotiate.

A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection is required for the Basic authentication method.

Type:ADAuthType
Parameter Sets:Negotiate, Basic
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Clear

Specifies an array of object properties that will be cleared in the directory. Use this parameter to clear one or more values of a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To modify an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can modify more than one property by specifying a comma-separated list. The format for this parameter is:

-Clear Attribute1LDAPDisplayName, Attribute2LDAPDisplayName

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace, and Clear parameters together, the operations will be performed in the following order:

  • Remove
  • Add
  • Replace
  • Clear
Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Credential

Specifies the user account credentials to use to perform this task. The default credentials are the credentials of the currently logged on user unless the cmdlet is run from an Active Directory PowerShell provider drive. If the cmdlet is run from such a provider drive, the account associated with the drive is the default.

To specify this parameter, you can type a user name, such as User1 or Domain01\User01 or you can specify a PSCredential object. If you specify a user name for this parameter, the cmdlet prompts for a password.

You can also create a PSCredential object by using a script or by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. You can then set the Credential parameter to the PSCredential object.

If the acting credentials do not have directory-level permission to perform the task, Active Directory PowerShell returns a terminating error.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Description

Specifies a description of the object. This parameter sets the value of the Description property for the object. The LDAP Display Name (ldapDisplayName) for this property is description.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-DisplayName

Displays the name of the resource property. The display name of the resource property must be unique.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Enabled

Specifies whether the resource property is enabled.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ProtectedFromAccidentalDeletion

Specifies whether to prevent the object from being deleted. When this property is set to $True, you cannot delete the corresponding object without changing the value of the property. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • $False or 0
  • $True or 1
Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Remove

Specifies that the cmdlet remove values of an object property. Use this parameter to remove one or more values of a property that cannot be modified using a cmdlet parameter. To remove an object property, you must use the LDAP display name. You can remove more than one property by specifying a semicolon-separated list. The format for this parameter is:

-Remove @{Attribute1LDAPDisplayName=value[]; Attribute2LDAPDisplayName=value[]}

When you use the Add, Remove, Replace, and Clear parameters together, the operations will be performed in the following order:

  • Remove
  • Add
  • Replace
  • Clear
Type:Hashtable
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Replace

Type:ADClaimType
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-SuggestedValues
