I will preface this by saying I know next to nothing about PowerShell, but am interested in learning more.

Is there a reason we can not make $VarValue a mandatory parameter?

I assume default parameter expressions are only evaluated if no parameter is supplied? I know in some languages they are eagerly evaluated, but this does not appear to be the case.

I hope you dont mind me using this as an opportunity to learn.

No that is a great question @davidMcneil ! The problem with using mandatory params here is that those will prompt the user if not provided which is not what we want in a studio build.

Obvious fix; these changes are the result of automation not creative thinking.
