The Set-SCCustomProperty cmdlet modifies the properties of a custom property. Properties that can be modified include the following:

  • Description of the custom property
  • Name of the custom property
  • Add a member to the custom property
  • Remove a member from the custom property

For information about creating a custom property, type Get-Help New-SCCustomProperty -Detailed.

Examples

Example 1: Add a member to a custom property

PS C:\> $CustomProp = Get-SCCustomProperty -Name "Cost Center"
PS C:\> Set-SCCustomProperty -CustomProperty $CustomProp -AddMember "VMHost"

The first command gets the custom property object named Cost Center and stores the object in the $CustomProp variable.

The second command adds the VMHost member to the custom property stored in $CustomProp.

Example 2: Remove a member from a custom property

PS C:\> $CustomProp = Get-SCCustomProperty -Name "Cost Center"
PS C:\> Set-SCCustomProperty -CustomProperty $CustomProp -RemoveMember "VM"

The first command gets the custom property object named Cost Center and stores the object in the $CustomProp variable.

The second command removes the VM member from the custom property object stored in $CustomProp.
