    Hi team.
    I'm trying to create a variable from a hashtable value. If he logged on user matches the hashtable key, create the variable off the hashtable value.

    # Create hashtable
    
    $environments = @{  
    'john.davies' = "IPC_john.davies"
    }
     
    # Variable for current user.
    $env:UserName
    
    # Variable I'm trying to create. I'm not sure how to get it to return the associated value and create the variable from it.
    $DeviceName = If ($environments.ContainsKey($env:UserName))

    You refer to hash table values by their key.

    $environments['John.davies']

    would return

    "IPC_john.davies"
