User role creation via powershell RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We are experiencing the situation that name and the description of a user role which is created via powershell does not show up in the console. If i do a get-scsmuserrole, everything looks fine but it will not be shown in the console. Any idea?

    Script used to get all required arguments:

    $RoleArguments = @{
    UserRole = "IncidentResolver"
    DisplayName = "restricted role"
    Description = "this is a test user role via powershell"
    #Queue = @()
    #Group = @()
    #All required tasks need to be listed below
    Task = @((get-scsmtask -name System.WorkItem.Incident.GeneralSettings.Task))
    #All required views should be listed below
    View = @((get-scsmview -name ActivityManagement.Views.ParallelActivitiesUnassigned))
    #All required templates should be listed below
    FormTemplate = @((get-scsmobjecttemplate -name Template.34e86cbc5ca54f38a220562b6b57bcbd))

    Script used for role creation itself:

    new-scsmuserrole @RoleArguments

  • This could be a language issue. Is the computer you are running this script from in a different locale than en-US?

  • Yes, the server has 'Switzerland' as its location setting. Language is set to German(Switzerland), for non-unicode programs it is set to English(US).

  • Try running the script under the en-US locale.

    Function Using-Culture (
    [System.Globalization.CultureInfo]$culture = (throw "USAGE: Using-Culture -Culture culture -Script {scriptblock}"),
    [ScriptBlock]$script= (throw "USAGE: Using-Culture -Culture culture -Script {scriptblock}"))
        $OldCulture = [System.Threading.Thread]::CurrentThread.CurrentCulture
            [System.Threading.Thread]::CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = $OldCulture
        [System.Threading.Thread]::CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = $culture
        Invoke-Command $script
        [System.Threading.Thread]::CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = $OldCulture
    Using-Culture en-US {new-scsmuserrole @RoleArguments}

  • Hi Dieter

    Sorry for my delayed response. Unfortunately your solution does not help. DisplayName and Description are still empty. Any other suggestions?
