EXAMPLES

Example 1: Rename a category by getting a category object

PS ABC:\> $Category = Get-CMCategory -Name "Category01" -CategoryType BaselineCategories
PS ABC:\> Rename-CMCategory -InputObject $Category -NewName "NewCategory01"

The first command gets the category object named Category01 of the type BaselineCategories and stores the object in the $Category variable.

The second command renames the category stored in $Category to NewCategory01.

Example 2: Rename a category by its name and type

PS ABC:\> Rename-CMCategory -Name "Category02" -NewName "NewCategory02" -CategoryType BaselineCategories

This command renames the category named Category02 of the type BaseineCategories to NewCategory02.

Example 3: Rename a category by passing a category object through the pipeline

PS ABC:\> Get-CMCategory -Name "Category03" -CategoryType BaselineCategories | Rename-CMCategory -NewName "NewCategory03"

This command gets the category object named Category03 of the type BaselineCategories and uses the pipeline operator to pass the object to Rename-CMCategory, which renames the category to NewCategory03.
