Powershell list evaluation

Last Modified: 2014-11-19
I'm working on a PowerShell script that queries our BackupExec database for the most recent completed jobs with "TM2ID" in the name and then uses the data from that query to send a status update through another script. Current code looks like this:

get-bejobhistory -fromstarttime (get-date).addminutes(-60) | where-object {$_.Name -like '*TM2ID*'} 

Open in new window


and the result I get is this:

Name                            JobStatus JobType StartTime             EndTime              
----                            --------- ------- ---------             -------              
Backup 00283-Full (TM2ID:33)    Succeeded Backup  11/19/2014 9:02:54 AM 11/19/2014 9:04:22 AM
Backup 00284-Full (TM2ID:133)   Canceled  Backup  11/19/2014 9:08:22 AM 11/19/2014 9:09:49 AM
Backup 00285-Full (TM2ID:4233)  Failed    Backup  11/19/2014 9:12:36 AM 11/19/2014 9:14:04 AM

Open in new window


What I need to do with each item found is put the number following "TM2ID:" into one variable and the JobStatus into another variable, and then do stuff with those variables (I think I've got that part figured out).
