AWS Send-SSMcommand parameter variable

1

I am trying to use a variable inside my command list like this

$Commands = @( '$DiskNumber = (Get-Partition -DriveLetter $driveletter).DiskNumber', 'Update-Disk -Number "$DiskNumber"', '$Size = Get-PartitionSupportedSize -DriveLetter $driveletter', 'Resize-Partition -DriveLetter $driveletter -Size $Size.SizeMax' ) $Parameter = @{ commands = $Commands }

however when I run the ssm command, its not recognizing the $driveletter variable which i defined earlier in the script.

if I put in letter instead of $driveletter, it works

any idea how to pass the variable inside the $commands list?

you need to wrap variable with backticks. I also ran into this issue and to troubleshoot you just go to the location of the script on the host and look at the script, you'll notice with how you have it, if you look at the script (c:\programdata\amazon\ssm{instanceId}\document\orchestration{orchestrationID}\awsrunPowerShellScript\0.awsrunPowerShellscript_script.ps1) the variable doesnt even show up left of the equal sign.

so just wrap like `$DiskNumber` = (get-partition...).. Then open the script from path and look at it to troublshoot further.

this is the error I am seeing. With or without back ticks
