help with pipeline output

2021-01-14T23:04:33.403+00:00

Sorry for asking, but I have no(t much) experience with pipes in windows.

Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -Identity "shared mailbox" |?{$_.identity -like "shared mailbox\Inbox*"} | select -expand Identity

Returns this output

shared mailbox\Inbox
shared mailbox\Inbox\test
shared mailbox\Inbox\test\test2
shared mailbox\Inbox\test\test2\test21
shared mailbox\Inbox\test\test3
shared mailbox\Inbox\test\test4

How can add TrimStart('shared mailbox') to the end of this pipeline to get.

\Inbox
\Inbox\test
\Inbox\test\test2
\Inbox\test\test2\test21
\Inbox\test\test3
\Inbox\test\test4

    A regular expression would be one way to accomplish this. Here are three examples:

    $x = "shared mailbox\Inbox",
    "shared mailbox\Inbox\test",
    "shared mailbox\Inbox\test\test2",
    "shared mailbox\Inbox\test\test2\test21",
    "shared mailbox\Inbox\test\test3",
    "shared mailbox\Inbox\test\test4"
    
    # This way (one at a time) . . .
    $x |
        ForEach-Object{
            $_ -replace '^shared mailbox(\\.*)$', '$1'
        }
    
    # Or this way (all at once) . . .
    $x -replace '^shared mailbox(\\.*)$', '$1'
    
    # This might work, too
    $MbxName = "shared mailbox"
    (Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -Identity $MbxName |
        Where-Object {$_.identity -like "$MbxName\Inbox*"} | 
            Select-Object -expand Identity) -replace "^$MbxName(\\.*)$", '$1'

    Maybe this helps:

    $output = "shared mailbox\Inbox\test"
    $output.Replace("shared mailbox","")
