Remove-CsRgsWorkflow

 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-08-11

Deletes an existing Response Group workflow. Workflows determine the actions that are taken when the Response Group application receives a phone call. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Remove-CsRgsWorkflow -Instance <Workflow> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Example 1 removes all the Response Group workflows from the service ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com. To do this, the command first calls Get-CsRgsWorkflow to return a collection of all the workflows found on ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com. That collection is then piped to Remove-CsRgsWorkflow, which deletes each workflow in the collection.

Get-CsRgsWorkflow -Identity Service:ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com | Remove-CsRgsWorkflow

The command shown in Example 2 deletes a single Response Group workflow: the workflow named "Help Desk Workflow" located on the service ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com. To do this, Get-CsRgsWorkflow is first used to return the workflow named Help Desk Workflow from the service ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com. That workflow is then piped to, and deleted by, Remove-CsRgsWorkflow.

Get-CsRgsWorkflow service:ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com -Name "Help Desk Workflow" | Remove-CsRgsWorkflow

Example 3 deletes all the United States (U.S.) English language workflows from the service ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com. To do this, Get-CsRgsWorkflow is first used to retrieve all workflows found on ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com. This collection is then piped to the Where-Object cmdlet, which selects only those workflows where the language is equal to U.S. English (en-us). This filtered collection is then piped to the Remove-CsRgsWorkflow cmdlet, which deletes each item in the collection.

Get-CsRgsWorkflow service:ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com | Where-Object {$_.Language -eq "en-us"} | Remove-CsRgsWorkflow

The command shown in Example 4 deletes all the Response Group workflows on the service ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com that have a value configured for the CustomMusicOnHoldFile property. In order to accomplish this, the command first uses Get-CsRgsWorkflow to return a collection of all the workflows found on ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com. That collection is then piped to the Where-Object cmdlet, which selects only those workflows where the CustomMusicOnHoldFile property is not equal to a null value. (If the property is not equal to a null value, that means that custom music has been defined for this workflow.) The filtered collection is then piped to Remove-CsRgsWorkflow, which removes each item in the collection.

Get-CsRgsWorkflow service:ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com | Where-Object {$_.CustomMusicOnHoldFile -ne $Null} | Remove-CsRgsWorkflow

Workflows are a key element in the Response Group application. Each workflow is uniquely associated with a phone number; when someone calls that number, the workflow determines how the call will be handled. For example, the call might be routed to a series of interactive voice response (IVR) questions that prompt the caller to enter additional information ("Press 1 for hardware support. Press 2 for software support.") Alternatively, the call might be placed in a queue and the caller placed on hold until an agent is available to answer the call. The availability of agents to answer calls is also dictated by the workflow: workflows are used to maintain both the business hours (the days of the week and the times of day when agents are available to answer calls) and the holidays (days when no agents are available to answer calls).

New workflows are created by using the New-CsRgsWorkflow cmdlet. After these workflows have been created, they can later be deleted by using Remove-CsRgsWorkflow. Note that, when you delete a workflow, the workflow is completely removed from the Response Group application. If you want to temporarily disable a workflow, don’t use Remove-CsRgsWorkflow; instead, use the Set-CsRgsWorkflow cmdlet to disable (and then later re-enable) the workflow.

If you try to delete an active workflow, Remove-CsRgsWorkflow will prompt you to verify that you really want to delete the workflow; Remove-CsRgsWorkflow will take no further action until you respond to the prompt. To bypass this prompt, and to silently delete an active workflow, use the Force parameter. For example:

Get-CsRgsWorkflow –Identity "service:ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com " | Remove-CsRgsWorkflow –Force

Who can run this cmdlet: By default, members of the following groups are authorized to run the Remove-CsRgsWorkflow cmdlet locally: RTCUniversalServerAdmins. To return a list of all the role-based access control (RBAC) roles this cmdlet has been assigned to (including any custom RBAC roles you have created yourself), run the following command from the Windows PowerShell prompt:

Get-CsAdminRole | Where-Object {$_.Cmdlets –match "Remove-CsRgsWorkflow"}

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Instance

Required

Microsoft.Rtc.Rgs.Management.WritableSettings.Workflow

Object reference pointing to the workflow to be removed. When piping workflow objects to Remove-CsRgsWorkflow you can leave off the Instance parameter.

To use the Instance parameter use commands similar to this:

$x = Get-CsRgsWorkflow –Identity ApplicationServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com /1987d3c2-4544-489d-bbe3-59f79f530a83

Remove-CsRgsWorkflow –Instance $x

Note that you can only remove a single workflow at a time when using the Instance parameter. That means that your object reference ($x) cannot contain multiple workflow objects.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Forces removal of the workflow. If this parameter is present, the workflow will be deleted without warning, even if it is currently active. If this parameter is not present then you will be asked to confirm the deletion of any active workflow.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Describes what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing the command.

Microsoft.Rtc.Rgs.Management.WritableSettings.Workflow object. Remove-CsRgsWorkflow accepts pipelined instances of the Response Group workflow object.

Remove-CsRgsWorkflow deletes existing instances of the Microsoft.Rtc.Rgs.Management.WritableSettings.Workflow object.
