# Using the Cmdlets

## Start the powershell environment

In order to get started either open any powershell IDE and load the powerFLC Module by calling Import-Module powerFLC or open the powerFLC Console shortcut in the start menu, which already loads the powerFLC module for you.

## Connect with Fusion 360 Manage

Before you are able to work with the Fusion 360 Manage tenant in your PowerShell environment you have to make sure that the tenant is configured correctly!

Next retrieve the Client ID and Secret of your registered powerPLM app from the Forge portal.

For https://previewcoolorange.autodeskplm360.net/plm/mainDashboard the tenant name would be previewcoolorange.

Now you can authenticate using Connect-FLC and all the previously retrieved information.



## Update a Field of an Item

One of the previously retrieved Fusion 360 Manage Items can now be picked and updated using the update-flcitem cmdlet.
By navigating to the Workspace Manager in Fusion 360 Manage we can find a Item Details Form that provides us a list of possible Item Details Fields that can be edited.

In following example we edit the value of a simple Text Field with the name ‘Description’ by just extending the value with a suffix.

$itemToUpdate =$items[0]

$itemToUpdate| Update-FLCItem -Properties @{'Description'= "$(\$itemToUpdate.Description) - Edited"}


After executing the commandlet, it will return an Item with the updated ‘Description’ Field.
