Synopsis

Calls the Amazon WorkSpaces RegisterWorkspaceDirectory API operation.

Syntax

Register-WKSWorkspaceDirectory
-DirectoryId <String>
-EnableSelfService <Boolean>
-EnableWorkDoc <Boolean>
-SubnetId <String[]>
-Tag <Tag[]>
-Tenancy <Tenancy>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Registers the specified directory. This operation is asynchronous and returns before the WorkSpace directory is registered. If this is the first time you are registering a directory, you will need to create the workspaces_DefaultRole role before you can register a directory. For more information, see Creating the workspaces_DefaultRole Role.

Parameters

-DirectoryId <String>
The identifier of the directory. You cannot register a directory if it does not have a status of Active. If the directory does not have a status of Active, you will receive an InvalidResourceStateException error. If you have already registered the maximum number of directories that you can register with Amazon WorkSpaces, you will receive a ResourceLimitExceededException error. Deregister directories that you are not using for WorkSpaces, and try again.

-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the DirectoryId parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^DirectoryId' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named

-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The cmdlet doesn't have a return value by default. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.WorkSpaces.Model.RegisterWorkspaceDirectoryResponse). Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-SubnetId <String[]>
The identifiers of the subnets for your virtual private cloud (VPC). Make sure that the subnets are in supported Availability Zones. The subnets must also be in separate Availability Zones. If these conditions are not met, you will receive an OperationNotSupportedException error.
