Detailed Description

Provides the ability to copy an identity pool.

The new identity pool will contain all the accounts that were in the original pool and will have the same domain and OU set. The naming scheme will be unset and the StartCount will be set to 1.


Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
IdentityPoolName The name of the identity pool that is to be copied. true true (ByPropertyName)  
IdentityPoolUid The unique identifier for the identity pool that is to be copied. true false  
NewIdentityPoolName The name of the new identity pool. true false  
LoggingId Specifies the identifier of the high-level operation this cmdlet call forms a part of. Citrix Studio and Director typically create high-level operations. PowerShell scripts can also wrap a series of cmdlet calls in a high-level operation by way of the Start-LogHighLevelOperation and Stop-LogHighLevelOperation cmdlets. false false  
BearerToken Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user false false  
AdminClientIP Specifies the Client IP of the calling user false false  
TraceParent Specifies the trace parent assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false  
TraceState Specifies the trace state assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false  
VirtualSiteId Specifies the virtual site the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. false false  
AdminAddress The address of a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops controller the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. You can provide this as a host name or an IP address. false false Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value becomes the default.
