Can you lead us to what we are doing wrong with this report?

`$CID ="{ed8afa99-e34d-4531-b69a-0bd0785f4d3a}"

$folders = gci -force '\server\Kunden'-ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | ? { $_ -is [io.directoryinfo] }

ForEach ($folder in $folders) { $customer = $folder $len = 0 gci -recurse -force $folder.fullname -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | ForEach-Object { $len += $_.length } $item = ($len / 1Gb)

$columnValues = @{ $CID = $item;} $Context.Items.Add(1, $customer, $columnValues) $Context.LogMessage($item, "Warning") Write-Host $customer, $item


The report shows all folder correctly, in the log we can see the correct values for the size but the column which should contain these number is shown as "empty": image.png

Column FolderSize ($CID)= Report specific column, Value generation = Template, empty. ColumnID is double checked an is the right one.

The thing is that when you are using the $Context.Items.Add method for items with an icon and column values, it should contain 4 parameters. Where the third parameter specifies the object type and the fourth one specifies column values. For details, have a look at the following SDK article: http://adaxes.com/sdk/?AdmListItems.html.

Also, there is no need to use pipeline when obtaining folders, you can just use the Directory parameter of the Get-ChildItem cmdlet.

Finally, your script should look like the following:

$CID ="{ed8afa99-e34d-4531-b69a-0bd0785f4d3a}"

$folders = gci -force '\server\Kunden'-ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -Directory

ForEach ($folder in $folders)
    $customer = $folder
    $len = 0
    gci -recurse -force $folder.fullname -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | ForEach-Object { $len += $_.length }
    $item = ($len / 1Gb)

    $columnValues = @{ $CID = $item }
    $Context.Items.Add(1, $customer, "Folder", $columnValues)

    $Context.LogMessage($item, "Warning")
