Hi there,

i've a custom command with multiple powershell scripts (for clearance reasons).


If for example the frist script produces an error i Write an Error but the next scripts are still beeing executed.

Is there a way that I can stop further scripts/actions or complete stop the custom command execution when an error will be produced?

I havn't tried with an simple exit 1; I only Write-Errors on issues.

Kind regards, Constantin

Hello Constantin,

To achieve the desired you can use try catch blocks to handle script terminating errors and use the $Context.Cancel method in the catch blocks. If used in a script executed in a custom command or scheduled task, the method will cancel the command/ task execution. However, if used in a business rule or in a custom command executed by a business rules, the Cancel method will cancel the initial operation that caused execution of the script. For example, if the script is executed in a business rule triggering Before creating a user, the Cancel method will cancel the user creation.


Thanks i exactly searched the $Context.Cancel command :)
