Set-SmaVariable

Creates or modifies a variable in SMA.

Syntax

Set-SmaVariable [-AuthenticationType <String>] [-Confirm] [-Credential <PSCredential>] [-Description <String>]
 [-Encrypted] [-Force] -Name <String> [-Port <Int32>] -Value <Object> -WebServiceEndpoint <String> [-WhatIf]
 [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Set-SmaVariable cmdlet creates or modifies a variable in System Management Automation (SMA). Specify the name of the variable and a value.

To encrypt the variable, use the Encrypted parameter. You cannot modify the encrypted state of a variable after creation. This cmdlet will fail if you use the Encrypted parameter on an existing, non-encrypted variable.

Examples

Example 1: Assign a value to a variable

PS C:\> Set-SmaVariable -Name "Variable01" -Value "String07" -WebServiceEndpoint "https://contoso.com/app01" -Encrypted

This command assigns the value String07 to the variable named Variable01 for the specified web service endpoint. Because the command specifies the Encrypted parameter, it encrypts the variable.

Parameters

-AuthenticationType

Specifies the authentication type. Valid values are:

- Basic

  • Windows

    The default value for this parameter is Windows. If you use Basic authentication, you must provide credentials by using the Credential parameter.
