Detailed Description

Provides the ability to set the userCertificate attribute for given accounts in Active Directory (AD).

The user performing the operation in PowerShell must have sufficient privileges in AD to set the userCertificate attribute. If the current user does not have sufficient privileges, the ADUserName and ADPassword parameters may be used instead.

Parameters

Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
IdentityPoolName The name of the identity pool containing the accounts to have userCertificate set. true false
ADAccountName The AD account name to be set with userCertificate.
Active Directory accounts are accepted in the following formats: Fully qualified DN e.g. CN=MyComputer,OU=Computers,DC=MyDomain,DC=Com; UPN format e.g MyComputer@MyDomain.Com; Domain qualified e.g MyDomain\MyComputer. true false
ADAccountSid The SID for the AD account to be set with userCertificate. true true (ByPropertyName)
AllAccounts Indicates if all accounts should be set with userCertificate. true false false
IdentityPoolUid The unique identifier of the identity pool containing the accounts to have userCertificate set. true true (ByPropertyName)
ADUserName The username for an AD user account with Write Permissions. This parameter must be used if the current user does not have the necessary privileges. false false
ADPassword The matching password for an AD user account with Write Permissions. This parameter must be used if the current user does not have the necessary privileges. false false
Force Indicates if accounts that are marked as 'in-use' can be set with userCertificate. false false false
BatchSize Specifies the number of accounts to set user certificate in one batch to AD Identity Service. false false 50
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
AdminAddress Specifies the address of a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops controller that the PowerShell snap-in connects 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.
