Web Deploy getParameters Operation

Updated: March 12, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, Windows XP

getParameters

The getParameters operation displays package or archive parameters.

Example

msdeploy -verb:getparameters -source:archiveDir=C:\WebArchive

getParameters displays the parameters that have been declared for a package or archive. The information is returned in XML format and shows the contents of the Parameters.xml file. You can define the parameters in the Parameters.xml file by using the -declareParam parameter when you create the package. When you use a parameterized package as a source in a sync operation, you can set the values for the declared parameters by using the -setParam parameter. getParameters can only be used when the source is a package or archive.

For more information about packages, see Web Deploy package Provider. For more information about the -declareParam and -setParam parameters, see Web Deploy Operation Settings.

Display the parameters in the Mediawiki.zip package file.

msdeploy -verb:getparameters -source:package=mediawiki.zip
