PowerShell:  Where-Object not working as a filter

Last Modified: 2017-03-26
I can't seem to limit this $userLicenses (without actually explicitly setting it)

What am I missing?

 $userLicenses = $userLicense | ? {$usersku -eq 'contoso:ENTERPRISEPACK'}

Open in new window

$UserLicenses yields all the user's licence SKUs, instead of the one.

What is the value of the $userLicense and $usersku variables?

Here's an example if you were working with objects returned from the Get-MsolAccountSku cmdlet:

Get-MsolAccountSku | Where-Object {$_.accountskuid -eq 'contoso:ENTERPRISEPACK'}
