HowTo:Use New .Methods

Be sure to check out my Scripting4Crypto initiative. It’s a fun way to get into using cryptocurrencies all while getting your PowerShell needs met.

With this latest version of the PWPS_DAB module (version 1.21.0.0) we have incorporated methods into some of the ProjectWise objects; Users, Groups, UserLists, and Workflows. Using methods allows you to get additional information related to the particular object quickly without calling other cmdlets. We will look at each of the various objects.

ProjectWise Users

Lets take a look at the ProjectWise User object first. 

There are three new methods available with the ProjectWise User object. 

# Use Get-Member and only display the available methods.
Get-PWUsersByMatch | Get-Member | Where-Object MemberType -ieq 'method'

User-Get-Member-methods

Get Project User Object

Lets select a user to test with.

# Get User object
$pwUser = Get-PWUsersByMatch -UserName ‘brian.flaherty

user

Get Last Login Date / Time

The GetLastLogin will return the last date and time the selected ProjectWise User has logged in.

$pwUser.GetLastLogin()

List Group / UserList Membership

Now lets look at the membership methods.

$pwUser.UserListsMemberOf()

userlists
