Get documentset fields in powershell

I am using the following powershell to add an entry to my document set.

$web = Get-SPWeb http://mysp/products  
$list = $web.Lists["RMSpecs"]    
$cType = $list.ContentTypes["RM Spec"]    
[Hashtable]$docsetProperties = @{"RMCode"="MyRM";"RMDescription"="myStuff"}
$newDocumentSet = [Microsoft.Office.DocumentManagement.DocumentSets.DocumentSet]::Create($list.RootFolder,"My Title",$cType.Id,$docsetProperties) 

Open in new window


I end up with a new documentset in my libruary called "My Title" as expected, but the other fields I was trying to populate (RMCode and RMDescription) are blank.

How do I find out the names for these fields?     or
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

Use U2U Camel Query Builder to find out the exact name of the fields which you are using

try ows_RMCode and ows_RMSDescription
Failing that, try sharepoint manager or other to get the true internal names

Hi,
you can use this Powershell script to get both the title and the internal name of the fields - just adjust the site url and the list name:
$siteUrl = "http://dev.rainerj.local/sites/ee/"
$listName = "EEReorderFields"
$site= New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite ($siteUrl) 
$web=$site.OpenWeb() 
$list=$web.Lists[$listName] 
$list.Fields |select ID, title, internalname | Sort-Object title

Open in new window


@QPR: the "ows_" are the names which are returned when you use the lists web service.
