Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-Alert

The name of the alerts to return. If null, will get all alerts from the server. Note - this parameter accepts wildcards.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-ExcludeAlert

The name of the alerts to exclude. If not provided, no alerts will be excluded. Note - this parameter accepts wildcards.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-EnableException

By default, when something goes wrong we try to catch it, interpret it and give you a friendly warning message. This avoids overwhelming you with "sea of red" exceptions, but is inconvenient because it basically disables advanced scripting. Using this switch turns this "nice by default" feature off and enables you to catch exceptions with your own try/catch.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value False
