Powershell to select the last result based on the per object (Jobname =Specification)

Brass Contributor

Dear All,

I'm developing HPDP daily report, able to get the result but the same job run multiple time in one day due to failure

Currently, I'm looking to get only the last result in the last 24 hours

$onlyLastEp =Get-ListSessions
foreach ($obj in $onlyLastEp) {
$obj |?{$obj.Specification } | Sort-Object EndTime -Descending | Select-Object -Property "Session Type", Specification,Status | Select-Object -First 1 | Export-Csv C:\Temp\report.csv -Append

this working but still getting the duplicate

Have you tried to use -Unique after the sort-object?
