    The Code:

    function getReport(reportContext, reportName)


         var report = null;

    var repContext = util.createContext("global_admin", null, null);

    var report = getReportView(repContext, reportName);




    logger.addInfo("Looking/Filtering for Power Shell Agent Name..............: " + name);

    // false exact match

    // ture = regex

    //report = report.filterRowsByColumn("Name", name, false);

    report = report.filterRowsByColumn("Name", name , true);



    var numRowsFound = report.rowCount();



    if (numRowsFound == 1 )


      logger.addInfo("Number of Rows found...............: " + numRowsFound);

    var id = report.getColumnValue(0, "Name");

    logger.addInfo("Power Shell Agent Name...............: " + id);



      output.ReturnStatus = id;

    // ctxt.setFailed("Number of Rows found......greater then zero PSA exists:" + name);




      logger.addInfo("Zero or Less...............: ");

      logger.addInfo("Number of Rows found...............: " + numRowsFound);



      output.ReturnStatus = -1;

      ctxt.setFailed("Number of Rows found......greater then zero more then one PSA exists:" + name);


    //output.ReturnStatus = -1;
