PreparedImageDefinitionName The name of the image definition to be updated. true false
PreparedImageVersionNumber The version number of the image version to be updated. true 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
