Description

The Set-CMDeviceCollectionVariable cmdlet changes the settings of a device collection variable.

Examples

Example 1: Change a variable name

PS C:\> $Collection = Get-CMCollection -Name "Device"
PS C:\> Set-CMDeviceCollectionVariable -Collection $Collection -VariableName "testTS" -NewVariableName "NewVariable"

The first command gets the device collection object named Device and stores the object in the $Collection variable.

The second command changes the name of the collection variable testTS for the device collection stored in $Collection to NewVariable.

Example 2: Change a variable name by using the pipeline

PS C:\> Get-CMCollection -Name "Device" | Set-CMDeviceCollectionVariable -VariableName "testTS" -NewVariableName "NewVariable"

This command gets the device collection object named Device and uses the pipeline operator to pass the object to Set-CMDeviceCollectionVariable, which changes the name of the collection variable testTS for the device collection object to NewVariable.
