PSTK: Select specific property value

Hi, hope you can help.

 

I'm using REST API to pull back cluster properties in order to output to an Excel spreadsheet.

 

# Set URI variable for retrieving properties
[String]$Uri = "https://$HostIP/api/cluster?fields=**&return_records=true&return_timeout=15"

# Trigger REST API call and store in a variable
$UriResponse = Invoke-RestMethod -Method GET -Uri $Uri -Headers $Headers -ErrorAction Stop

# Select specific properties
$ObjectProperties = $UriResponse | Select-Object -Property name,location,version

 

Looking at the $ObjectProperties variable, the 'name' and 'location' properties are in a format that I m happy with, however the 'version' property has a series of properties bundled into a hash table.

 

PS C:\windows\system32> $ObjectProperties

name         location    version                                                                                                                          
----         --------    -------                                                                                                                          
cluster_name room21      @{full=NetApp Release 9.8P3: Sat Mar 27 08:43:48 UTC 2021; generation=9; major=8; minor=0; name=h3bspprdm1; location=Cabinet P49}

 

I'd like to have the output in this format:

 

name         location    version                                                                                                                          
----         --------    -------                                                                                                                          
cluster_name room21      NetApp Release 9.8P3: Sat Mar 27 08:43:48 UTC 2021

 

Can you help please?

Hi,

 

You can transform the version variable:

 

 

$ObjectProperties = $UriResponse | Select-Object -Property name,location,@{Label = "version"; expression = {$_.version.full}}

 

 

Example:

 

$ObjectProperties = $UriResponse | Select-Object -Property name,location,@{Label = "version"; expression = {$_.version.full}}
