Detailed Description

Provides the ability for additional custom data to be stored against given ServiceInstance objects.


Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
ServiceInstanceUid Id of the ServiceInstance 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 ServiceInstance 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 either be 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 use false false  
VirtualSiteId Specifies the virtual site the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. false false
