Rebuild a virtual machine in a full-clone desktop pool

I'd like to know if it is possible to create a script with PowerCLI to rebuild a virtual machine in a full-clone desktop pool, as in the following document:
https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Horizon-7/7.13/horizon-virtual-desktops/GUID-7B6737E8-DD82-482F-BF...

Thanks.

That is certainly possible, first perform a query to get the machine or machine's that you need to rebuild and after that use the machine.machine(rebuild(machineid) api method

f there are more machines use machine.machine_rebuildmachines([machineids]) make sure it's an array if the machineid's only.

to build the query use this on how to build it:

and for the

after that use either of the methods to rebuild the machine(s)

Thank you very much. I have learned a lot from the sites you have provided.
Is it possible to use Hv.Helper to implement the Horizon View API in an environment where it is not subscribed?

you can copy the vmware.hv.helper to any machine that has powercli installed and use it.
