Syntax

ConvertFrom-CMApplication
           -InputObject <Application>

Description

The ConvertFrom-CMApplication cmdlet converts an application SDK object to an application object.

Examples

Example 1: Convert an application object

PS C:\> $SdkApp = Get-CMApplication -Name "Application01" | ConvertTo-CMApplication
PS C:\> $SdkApp | ConvertFrom-CMApplication

The first command gets the application object named Application01 and uses the pipeline operator to pass the object to ConvertTo-CMApplication, which converts the application object into an application SDK object. The command then stores the object in the $SdkApp variable.

The second command converts the application SDK object stored in $SdkApp to an application object.

Example 2: Convert an application object

PS C:\> $SdkApp = Get-CMApplication -Name "Application02" | ConvertTo-CMApplication
PS C:\> ConvertFrom-CMApplication -InputObject $SdkApp

The first command gets the application object named Application02 and uses the pipeline operator to pass the object to ConvertTo-CMApplication, which converts the application object into an application SDK object. The command then stores the object in the $SdkApp variable.

The second command converts the application SDK object stored in $SdkApp to an application object.
