I want to create a root Business Process Type using Tridion Core Service Session Aware Client (8.5). But I have a problem creating a Business process type.

using namespace Tridion.ContentManager.CoreService.Client
Using namespace System.Uri
Import-Module Tridion-CoreService

$user = "domain\user"
if(-not $credential){
    $credential = Get-Credential -UserName $user -Message "Remote Server Tridion Administrator Account"

$tcsconnection = @{
        hostname       = "cms.poc2.domain.internal"
        version        = "Web-8.5"   # 2011-SP1, 2013, 2013-SP1, Web-8.1, Web-8.5
        ConnectionType = "default"    # Default, SSL, LDAP, LDAP-SSL, netTcp, Basic, Basic-SSL
        CredentialType = "Windows"
Set-TridionCoreServiceSettings @tcsconnection 

$settings = Get-TridionCoreServiceSettings

    $client = Get-TridionCoreServiceClient
    $client.ChannelFactory.Credentials.Windows.ClientCredential = $credential

    Write-Output "Failed to connect TridionCoreService on $($tcsconnection.hostname)"

$businessProcessType = New-Object BusinessProcessTypeData
$businessProcessType.Title = "DooHickey"


The property 'Title' cannot be found on this object. Verify that the property exists and can be set. At line:35 char:1 + $businessProcessType.Title = "DooHickey" + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [], RuntimeException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PropertyAssignmentException

  • Weird. What do you get if you do Get-Member $businessProcessType ? – Rick Pannekoek May 25 '18 at 6:27
  • BTW, your error handling is a bit dubious: if connection fails, you write an (informative) message to the output and try to continue... :-) – Rick Pannekoek May 25 '18 at 6:32
  • This is just an test example not real code – Chris Mills May 25 '18 at 7:57

Logged in on new session and problem was gone. No ideas why it would not work yesterday. Thanks to Rick for Get-Member suggestion.

  • Just a note that when creating new items, I suggest to always call $client.GetDefaultData instead of creating the data object yourself. That will initialize a lot of the properties for you. – Peter Kjaer May 25 '18 at 11:20
