(WAL) – Workflow Example – Removal of a multivalued reference attribute


Special Thanks to Mr. David Hodge for putting the WAL Workflow Documentation together

Things to keep in mind

• the RemoveValues function requires a “List” to be passed to it. Adding in the GUID into the RemoveValues function didn’t seem to do it.
• An example PowerShell activity that allows you to build a list of object GUIDs to pass to the Update Resources activity.

Below is how I modified it… We could probably be more elegant by add

function New-GenericObject

{

<#

.Synopsis

Create a new generic object.

.Description

Create a new generic object.

.Example

New-GenericObject -TypeName System.Collections.Generic.List  -TypeParameters Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.CSEntryChange

#>

 

[CmdletBinding()]

[OutputType([object])]

param(

[parameter(Mandatory = $true)]

[string]

$TypeName,

[parameter(Mandatory = $true)]

[string[]]

$TypeParameters,

[parameter(Mandatory = $false)]

[object[]]

$ConstructorParameters

)

 

process

{

$genericTypeName = $typeName + '`' + $typeParameters.Count

$genericType = [Type]$genericTypeName

 

if (!$genericType)

{

throw "Could not find generic type $genericTypeName"

}

 

# Bind the type arguments to it

$typedParameters = [type[]] $TypeParameters

$closedType = $genericType.MakeGenericType($typedParameters)

 

if (!$closedType)

{

throw "Could not make closed type $genericType"

}

 

# Create the closed version of the generic type, don't forget comma prefix

,[Activator]::CreateInstance($closedType, $constructorParameters)

}

}

 

 

$MembersToAdd = New-GenericObject System.Collections.Generic.List Microsoft.ResourceManagement.WebServices.UniqueIdentifier

$MembersToRemove = New-GenericObject System.Collections.Generic.List Microsoft.ResourceManagement.WebServices.UniqueIdentifier

$ObjectID = New-Object Microsoft.ResourceManagement.WebServices.UniqueIdentifier("e05d1f1b-3d5e-4014-baa6-999999999999")

$MembersToRemove.Add($ObjectID)

 

return @{ "MembersToAdd" = $MembersToAdd; "MembersToRemove" = $MembersToRemove }
