Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Get-AXModelManifest [-Config <String> ] [-Database <String> ] [-File <String> ] [-Model <String> ] [-Server <String> ] [-Xml] [ <CommonParameters>]


Detailed description

The Get-AXModelManifest cmdlet retrieves the properties of a model. It can be used to retrieve properties from a model in a model store or an .axmodel file. The cmdlet can also be used to output an XML version of a model manifest. This cmdlet returns all properties of a model, including properties that you cannot set values for, such as Category, Signed, and Layer.

Possible values for Category are Standard, Hotfix, and Virtual. Most models are in the Standard category. Hotfix describes the models that are created by the Microsoft sustained engineering team. Virtual describes models that are created by using the Install-AXModel cmdlet with the -CreateParents parameter.

Signed indicates whether a model has been signed.

Layer indicates the name of the layer that the model is in.
