New-PSWorkflowExecutionOption

New-PSWorkflowExecutionOption

Creates an object that contains session configuration options for workflow sessions.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
New-PSWorkflowExecutionOption [-ActivityProcessIdleTimeoutSec <Int32> ] [-AllowedActivity <String[]> ] [-EnableValidation <Boolean> ] [-MaxActivityProcesses <Int32> ] [-MaxConnectedSessions <Int32> ] [-MaxDisconnectedSessions <Int32> ] [-MaxPersistenceStoreSizeGB <Int64> ] [-MaxRunningWorkflows <Int32> ] [-MaxSessionsPerRemoteNode <Int32> ] [-MaxSessionsPerWorkflow <Int32> ] [-OutOfProcessActivity <String[]> ] [-PersistencePath <String> ] [-PersistWithEncryption <Boolean> ] [-RemoteNodeSessionIdleTimeoutSec <Int32> ] [-SessionThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-WorkflowApplicationPersistUnloadTimeoutSec <Int32> ] [-WorkflowShutdownTimeoutMSec <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The New-PSWorkflowExecutionOption cmdlet creates an object that contains advanced options for session configurations (also known as "endpoints"). These options are designed especially for session configurations that are used to run workflows.

You can use the PSWorkflowExecutionOption object that New-PSWorkflowExecutionOption generates as the value of the SessionTypeOption parameter of cmdlets that create or change a session configuration, such as the Register-PSSessionConfiguration and Set-PSSessionConfiguration cmdlets.

By default, session configurations do not have these options and they are not applied to sessions that use the session configuration.

The New-PSWorkflowExecutionOption cmdlet is part of the Windows PowerShell Workflow feature.

This cmdlet is introduced in Windows PowerShell 3.0.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=113216).

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • None

    You cannot pipe input to this cmdlet.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.PSWorkflowExecutionOption

Notes

  • When the maximum value set by an option is exceeded, the command to create another instance in the session fails, unless noted in the parameter description. For example, if the value of MaxConnectedSessions is 100. The command to create the 101st session to a managed node fails.

  • The properties of a session configuration object vary with the options set for the session configuration and the values of those options. Also, session configurations that use a session configuration file have additional properties.

    In particular, the properties of session configurations ("endpoints") that include a PSWorkflowExecutionOptions object vary based on the workflow option values. For example, if the session configuration includes a PSWorkflowExecutionOptions object that sets a non-default value for the SessionThrottleLimit property, the session configuration has a SessionThrottleLimit property. Otherwise, it does not.

Examples

Example 1: Create a Workflow Options Object

This command uses the New-PSWorkflowExecutionOption cmdlet to increase the MaxSessionsPerWorkflow value to 10 and decrease the MaxDisconnectedSessions value to 200.

The output shows the object that the cmdlet returns.


PS C:\> New-PSWorkflowExecutionOption -MaxSessionsPerWorkflow 10 -MaxDisconnectedSessions 200
SessionThrottleLimit                       : 100
PersistencePath                            : C:\Users\User01\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\PowerShell\WF\PS
MaxPersistenceStoreSizeGB                  : 10
PersistWithEncryption                      : False
MaxRunningWorkflows                        : 30
AllowedActivity                            : {PSDefaultActivities}
OutOfProcessActivity                       : {InlineScript}
EnableValidation                           : True
MaxDisconnectedSessions                    : 200
MaxConnectedSessions                       : 100
MaxSessionsPerWorkflow                     : 10
MaxSessionsPerRemoteNode                   : 5
MaxActivityProcesses                       : 5
WorkflowApplicationPersistUnloadTimeoutSec : 5
ActivityProcessIdleTimeoutSec              : 60
RemoteNodeSessionIdleTimeoutSec            : 60
WorkflowShutdownTimeoutMSec                : 500

Example 2: Using a Workflow Options Object

This example shows how to use a workflow options object to establish or change the workflow options in a session configuration.


The first command uses the New-PSWorkflowExecutionOption cmdlet to create a workflow options object. The command saves the object in the $wo variable.


PS C:\> $wo = New-PSWorkflowExecutionOption -MaxSessionsPerWorkflow 10 -MaxDisconnectedSessions 200

The second command uses the Register-PSSessionConfiguration cmdlet to create the ITWorkflows session configuration. To set the workflow options in the session configuration, the command uses the SessionTypeOption parameter. The value of the SessionTypeOption parameter is the workflow options object in the $wo variable. The command also uses the Force parameter to suppress confirmations prompts.


PS C:\> Register-PSSessionConfiguration -Name ITWorkflows -SessionTypeOption $wo -Force
WSManConfig: Microsoft.WSMan.Management\WSMan::localhost\Plugin

Type            Keys                                Name
----            ----                                ----
Container       {Name=ITWorkflows}                  ITWorkflows

The third command shows the workflow options in the session configuration. The command uses the Get-PSSessionConfiguration cmdlet to the get the ITWorkflows session configuration and the Format-List to display all properties of the session configuration in a list.

The output shows that the workflow options in the session configuration. Specifically, the session configuration has a MaxSessionsPerWorkflow property with a value of 10 and a MaxDisconnectedSessions property with a value of 200.
