need urgent assistance with powershell script to add variable.

hello, can someone provide a way that we can feed this script with an input.csv

here is the logic:

New-AddressRewriteEntry -Name "<Descriptive Name>" -InternalAddress <internal email address> -ExternalAddress <external email address> [-OutboundOnly <$true | $false>]

Open in new window


i have a CSV with:
column 1 = internal email address
column 2 = external email address

need a way to define a variable so the script can reference the input CSV file and add these re-write entries for a list of users on the spreadsheet.

thanks in advance

$infile = 'c:\test\input.csv'
$users = import-csv -path $infile
foreach($user in $users){
$outboundonly = $false
if ($user.OutboundOnly -eq 'true') { $outboundonly = $true }
New-AddressRewriteEntry -Name $user.Descriptive Name -InternalAddress $user.internalemailaddress -ExternalAddress $user.externalemailaddress -OutboundOnly $outboundonly
