Org Category

Cmdlets are usually implemented around resource operations. The four basic operations are CREATE, READ, UPDATE and DELETE. This set of operations is known as CRUD. Most of the cmdlets support CRUD which are respectively cmdlets that start with the New/Get/Set/Remove cmdlet verbs but they also may have additional operations

Step 1: Retrieve a object by running a Get command

You can READ objects by using Get-Org cmdlet. See example below:

# Gets an organization by name. You must be connected as a cloud administrator.

Get-Org -Name Organization1

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

You can CREATE objects by using New-Org cmdlet. See example below:

# Creates a new organization with the specified full name and description.

$myOrgName = "MyOrg" $myOrganization = New-Org -Name $myOrgName -FullName "MyOrgFullName" -Description "MyOrgDescription"
You can UPDATE objects by using Set-Org cmdlet. See example below:

# Deactivates an organization and modifies its unique name identifier, its full name and its description.

Get-Org -Name "MyOrg" | Set-Org -Enabled:$false | Set-Org -Name "MyOrgNewName" -FullName "MyOrgFullName2" -Description "Update my Org"
You can REMOVE objects by using Remove-Org cmdlet. See example below:

# Removes the MyOrg organization.

Get-Org "MyOrg" | Remove-Org
