Example 1

c:\PS>Export-AcctIdentityPool -IdentityPoolName MyPool<br><br>{"IdentityPoolName":"MyPool","NamingScheme":"Acc###","NamingSchemeType":2,"StartCount":7,"OU":"","Domain":"","Lock":false,"TenantId":null,"ResourceLocationId":null,"ZoneUid":null,"WorkgroupMachine":false,"IdentityType":"ActiveDirectory","IdentityContent":null,"DeviceManagementType":"None","Accounts":[]}


Exports the identity pool named "MyPool". This pool contains accounts that have not been used yet, so they are not exported.
