Setting A JAMS Variable


There are many ways to set a JAMS Variable. If using the GUI interface, users can use the Definitions tab Variables shortcut.

If using PowerShell, users can set an existing JAMS Variables by doing:

Import-Module JAMS

Set-JAMSVariable MyVariableName "The New Value" 


If users are not using PowerShell, the use of the JAMS Legacy Command Line Tool can be used:

"C:\Program Files\MVPSI\JAMS\Client\JAMS.EXE" SET SERVER YourJAMSServer
"C:\Program Files\MVPSI\JAMS\Client\JAMS.EXE" SET VARIABLE MyVariableName "The New Value"

    Can you specify a path to the variable you wish to set? If so can you add an example?

    Hello Tom, you certainly can. You can specify the fully qualified path to the variable such as \MyFolder\MySubFolder\MyVar.

    For example:

    Set-JAMSVariable -Name \MyFolder\MySubFolder\MyVar -Value 123 -Server MyJAMSServer

    The legacy command tool JAMS.exe was not designed to be used with JAMS Folders, and so it can only set variables at the root folder level.
