  • Change commCellName on multiple clients
    Posted: 12-17-2019, 10:11 AM


    I have multiple client that I need to change their CommCell name on their client properties.

    I'm trying to achieve that with REST API, 

    Here is my XML :

    $xxx ='<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>





              <commCellName>my NEW CC </commCellName>





    I’m receiving error code 0, but no change is made on the client.

    I’m using PowerShell

    Invoke-RestMethod -Method POST -Uri $WebServer/Client/clientid -Headers $headers -Body $xxx -ContentType "application/xml"

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Do you mean you want to change the ClientName and not CommCellName?  If you are changing the CommCellName, then this can be a very difficult process and you may be informed by support that this is not a supported operation.
