Get-IISConfigCollectionElement

Gets a configuration element object from an IIS configuration collection.

Syntax

Get-IISConfigCollectionElement
   [-ConfigCollection] <ConfigurationElementCollection>
   [[-ConfigAttribute] <Hashtable>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-IISConfigCollectionElement cmdlet gets a ConfigurationElement object that is part of a given ConfigurationCollection. The returned element then can be used in further cmdlets that expect a ConfigurationElement.

Examples

Example 1: Get a configuration element for the default web site by passing the collection through a pipeline

PS C:\> Get-IISConfigSection -SectionPath "system.applicationHost/sites" | Get-IISConfigCollection | Get-IISConfigCollectionElement -ConfigAttribute @{"name"="Default Web Site"}

This command gets a configuration element for the default web site by passing the collection through a pipeline.

Example 2: Get a configuration element using a configuration collection as a parameter

PS C:\> $SiteCollection = Get-IISConfigSection -SectionPath "system.applicationHost/sites" | Get-IISConfigCollection
Get-IISConfigCollectionElement -ConfigCollection $SiteCollection -ConfigAttribute @{"name"="Default Web Site"}

This command gets a configuration element for the default web site and then stores the element into variable $SiteCollection.

Required Parameters

-ConfigCollection

Specifies the ConfigurationCollection object for which the collection elements will be returned. If a ConfigurationCollection is previously obtained and assigned to a varible, you cannot pass it to this cmdlet through the pipeline because the pipeline engine will try to enumerate, passing ConfigurationElement objects instead. Try either passing the whole Get-IISConfigCollection cmdlet into the pipeline or use it as a parameter for correct results.
