Importing a String that might have single and/or double quotes RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work with Orchestrator and SCOM and i am working on a powershell script to grab SCOM alert info and send it to MS Teams.  THe problem is that the SCOM Alerts descriptions come in sometimes with single and or double quotes.  Most of the time there is no issue (no quotes), but there are some alerts that have one or the other, and even sometimes both.  How do you handle this?


    $Message = "<SCOM Description from SCOM Alert>"


    $Message =


    <SCOM Description from SCOM Alert>


    Which didn't work.  Tried to put in Try-Catch, didn't work.

    What you are asking is very vague.  An alert comes in a variable. Quotes inside a variable have no issues they are just characters in a variable.

  • Why not use powershell scom module to get the alerts?
