Update-SCSMConnector

Updates the properties of a Service Manager connector.

Syntax

Update-SCSMConnector [-Connector] <Connector[]> [-Confirm] [-PassThru] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Update-SCSMConnector cmdlet updates the properties of a Service Manager connector. For example, you can set the Enable property to $False to disable the connector, or you can set it to $True to enable the connector. Use this cmdlet conjunction with the Get-SCSMConnector cmdlet. After Get-SCSmConnector retrieves the object, you can modify the properties of the object, and then pass it to the current cmdlet. This cmdlet updates the properties.

The schedule property is only available if you have applied Service Manager 2012 R2 Update Rollup 6 or later.

For each connector type, you can update the following properties:

Active Directory Connector

- Description

  • Enable
  • Name
  • RunAsAccount
  • SelectedObjects
  • Schedule

    Configuration Manager Connector

    - Collections
  • Description
  • Enable
  • Name
  • RunAsAccount
  • Schedule

    Operations Manager Alert Connector

    - CloseAlert
  • Description
  • Enable
  • Name
  • ResolveIncident
  • Rules
  • RunAsAccount
  • Schedule
  • Template

    Operations Manager CI Connector

    - Description
  • Enable
  • Name
  • OperationsManagerServer
  • RunAsAccount
  • Schedule

Examples

Example 1: Update objects in an Active Directory connector

PS C:\>$RunAsAccount = Get-SCSMRunAsAccount -RunAsProfileName "NewProfile"
PS C:\> $ADConnector = Get-SCSMConnector -Name "WOODGROVE Active Directory"
PS C:\> $ADConnector.Select = "(&(objectCategory=computer)(name=*fulle*))"
PS C:\> Get-SCSMConnector | ForEach-Object { $_.RunAsAccount = $RunAsAccount } | Update-SCSMConnector

This example updates the selected objects of an Active Directory connector. The first command gets a Run As account, by using the Get-SCSMRunAsAccount cmdlet, and then stores it in the $RunAsAccount variable.

The second command gets a connector by using the Get-SCSMConnector cmdlet, and then stores it in the $ADConnector variable.

The third command assigns a value to the Select property of $ADConnector.

The final command gets all connectors, and then passes those that use the $RunAsAccount as the Run As account to the current cmdlet. That cmdlet updates the connectors.

Example 2: Update the Run As account for connectors

PS C:\>$RunAsAccount = Get-SCSMRunAsAccount -RunAsProfileName "NewProfile"
PS C:\> Get-SCSMConnector | ForEach-Object { $_.RunAsAccount = $RunAsAccount } | Update-SCSMConnector

The first command gets the Run As account that has the profile name NewProfile, and then stores the result in the $RunAsAccount variable.

The second command updates all connectors that have the Run As account of $RunAsAccount.

Example 3: Update an Operations Manager Alert connector

PS C:\>$AlertConnector = Get-SCSMConnector "Alert Connector"
PS C:\>$AlertConnector.rules += New-SCSMAlertRule @{
>> Name = "newRule"
>> Template = Get-SCSMObjectTemplate -Name ".*IncidentTemplate.*"
>> ManagementPack = Get-SCManagementPack "System.Library"
>>}
PS C:\>Update-SCSMConnector -Connector $AlertConnector

This example adds a new rule to an Operations Manager Alert connector. The first command gets a connector, and then stores it in the $AlertConnector variable.

The second command adds a rule to the rules property of $AlertConnector. The New-SCSMAlertRule cmdlet creates the rule. The command extends over several lines.

The final command updates the connector to the current value of $AlertConnector.
