Import a provisioning scheme into the site


Import-ProvScheme [-ProvisioningSchemeData <String>] [-Scope <String[]>] [-LoggingId <Guid>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-AdminClientIP <String>] [-TraceParent <String>] [-TraceState <String>] [-VirtualSiteId <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

This cmdlet imports a provisioning scheme into the site. The data passed to this cmdlet should generally be obtained through the Export-ProvScheme cmdlet from a different site.


Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
ProvisioningSchemeData JSON encoded string of a provisioning scheme, image history, and VMs created with the provisioning scheme. false true (ByPropertyName)  
Scope The administration scopes to be applied to the new provisioning scheme. false 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 user 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.

Input Type


You can pipe a JSON encoded string of a provisioning scheme to Import-ProvScheme.
