Invoke-EvergreenLibraryUpdate

SYNOPSIS

Invokes the update and download of application installers in an Evergreen library. Invoke-EvergreenLibraryUpdate reads the library manifest (EvergreenLibrary.json) which defines the applications in the library and uses Get-EvergreenApp and Save-EvergreenApp to download the latest installers to the library.

SYNTAX

Invoke-EvergreenLibraryUpdate [-Path] <FileInfo> [-Proxy <String>] [-ProxyCredential <PSCredential>] [-WhatIf]
 [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

An Evergreen library can be used to maintain multiple versions of application installers, rather than always using the latest installer. An Evergreen library allows you to install the version of an application required for a specific environment including rolling back to a previous version of an application. An Evergreen library also enables you to build an image build without requiring internet access, by downloading the application installers to the library and then using those installers during the image build process.

Invoke-EvergreenLibraryUpdate invokes the update and download of application installers in an Evergreen library. Invoke-EvergreenLibraryUpdate reads the library manifest (EvergreenLibrary.json) which defines the applications in the library and uses Get-EvergreenApp and Save-EvergreenApp to download the latest installers to the library.

EXAMPLES

EXAMPLE 1

Invoke-EvergreenLibraryUpdate -Path "\\server\EvergreenLibrary"

Description: Invoke-EvergreenLibraryUpdate reads the library manifest EvergreenLibrary.json located in \server\EvergreenLibrary which defines the applications for that library. It uses Get-EvergreenApp and Save-EvergreenApp to download the latest installers to the library.
