Set-SmaVariable

Creates or modifies a variable in Service Management Automation.

Syntax

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




Detailed Description

The Set-SmaVariable cmdlet creates or modifies a variable in Service Management Automation. 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. Using the Encrypted parameter on an existing, non-encrypted, variable fails.

Parameters

-AuthenticationType<String>

Specifies the authentication type. Valid values are: Basic, Windows.

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

Examples

Example 1: Assign a value to a variable

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.


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