Detailed Description

Use this cmdlet to store additional custom data against given Task objects. This cmdlet does not overwrite existing metadata on an object - use the Set-ProvTaskMetadata cmdlet instead.


Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value  
TaskId Id of the Task true true (ByValue, ByPropertyName)    
InputObject Objects to which the metadata is to be added. true true (ByValue)    
Name Specifies the property name of the metadata to be added. The property must be unique for the Task specified. The property cannot contain any of the following characters \/;:#.*?=<> []()”’ true false  
Value Specifies the value for the property. true false    
Map Specifies a dictionary of (name, value)-pairs for the properties. This can be either a hashtable (created with @{“name1” = “val1”; “name2” = “val2”}) or a string dictionary (created with new-object “System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary[String,String]”). true true (ByValue)    
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    
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 Specifies the address of a XenDesktop 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.
