Detailed Description

The Set-BrokerApplicationGroup cmdlet changes the properties of one or more application groups. The changed properties and the new values of those properties are specified as parameters to Set-BrokerApplicationGroup.

This cmdlet cannot change the relationships of application group objects with other objects. For instance, it cannot change which users can access applications in this application group, or change which desktop groups this application group is published to. To do this, you need to remove the existing association, and then add a new association.

The following example shows how to change the desktop group that application group $applicationGroup is associated with from $desktopGroup1 to $desktopGroup2: Remove-BrokerApplicationGroup $applicationGroup -DesktopGroup $desktopGroup1 Add-RemoveApplicationGroup $applicationGroup -DesktopGroup $desktopGroup2

Application groups may not be renamed using this cmdlet. To rename an application group, use Rename-BrokerApplicationGroup.


Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
InputObject Specifies the application group whose properties should be altered. Its Uid can also be substituted for the object reference. true true (ByValue)  
Name Alters the properties of application groups whose name matches the supplied pattern. true true (ByPropertyName)  
PassThru This cmdlet does not generate any output, unless you use the PassThru parameter, in which case it returns the affected record. false false False
Description The new description for the application group. false false  
Enabled Whether the application group’s applications should be launchable by end users. false false  
RestrictToTag Specifies the new values of the application group’s tag restriction. false false

SingleAppPerSession Specifies whether each application launched from this application group starts in its own new session or can share an existing suitable session if present. Please note this setting and SessionSharingEnabled cannot be true at the same time. false false  
UserFilterEnabled Specifies the new value of the application group’s UserFilterEnabled flag. false false  
LoggingId Specifies the identifier of the high level operation that this cmdlet call forms a part of. Desktop Studio and Desktop 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  
AdminAddress Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller that the PowerShell snapin will connect to. This can be provided as a host name or an IP address. false false Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value will become the default.

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

Return Values

None Or Citrix.Broker.Admin.Sdk.Applicationgroup

This cmdlet does not generate any output, unless you use the PassThru parameter, in which case it generates a Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.ApplicationGroup object.
