Set-SCSpfExtensibleEventHandler

Sets an extensible event handler in Service Provider Foundation.

Syntax

Set-SCSpfExtensibleEventHandler [-Confirm] [-Enable] -EventName <String> [-OrchestratorUri <String>]
 [-RunbookPath <String>] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Set-SCSPFExtensibleEventHandler cmdlet invokes a runbook in System Center 2016 - Orchestrator to run whenever a new virtual machine or new service is created. The virtual machine or service must be created by calls to Service Provider Foundation with the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) service. Service Provider Foundation raises internal events to invoke the runbook, and the runbook will be invoked continuously as long as the extensible event handler is enabled.

Service Provider Foundation will not invoke the runbook if the virtual machine or service was created by other means, such as by using PowerShell cmdlets for by using the console in VMM.

To support the infrastructure for invoking a runbook, Service Provider Foundation calls the Start-SCOrchestratorRunbook cmdlet internally; the user does not need to call it explicitly.

Examples

Example 1: Set an event handler

PS C:\>Set-SCSPFExtensibleEventHandler -EventName "VirtualMachineCreated" -OrchestratorUri "https://scxspf-ws8-24:82/Orchestrator2012/Orchestrator.svc" -RunbookPath "\SPF Runbooks\Extensibility\VM Created" -Enable

This command enables an event handler to invoke a runbook.

Example 2: Disable an event handler

PS C:\>Set-SCSPFExtensibleEventHandler -EventName "VirtualMachineCreated" -OrchestratorUri "https://scxspf-ws8-24:82/Orchestrator2012/Orchestrator.svc" -RunbookPath "\SPF Runbooks\Extensibility\VM Created"

This command disables an event handler from invoking a runbook because the Enable parameter is omitted.
