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 : Run commands from the CRUD group

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

# Creates an SAML2 security context object by authenticating the user with an OAuth2 security context from the VMware Cloud Services authentication server. This SAML2 security context can be used to authenticate the user to any vCenter Server services running in the VMware Cloud on AWS.

$oauthCtx = New-VcsOAuthSecurityContext -ApiToken "a3f35067-80b5-44f0-a0bc-e19f2bc17fb7" $samlCtx = New-VISamlSecurityContext -VCenterServer "Server" -OAuthSecurityContext $oauthCtx
