I want to archive Sitecore item version and not the entire item using Powershell script.

I could not find the way to archive version, articles are there to archive item but not the specific version. Also could not find the command in PowerShell documentation. https://doc.sitecorepowershell.com/

I tried ArchiveItem($item) but it archives the entire item and not the version alone.

Can some one guide me to find the solution on this query?

Yes, it is possible through Sitecore Powershell script. Write your logic like this.

# get item to archive and provide the version. Examle 3

$item = Get-Item -Path "master:" -Uri "sitecore://master/{6151ACBE-40C3-45D5-BCE8-5E939C461C12}?lang=en&ver=3"


$archive = [Sitecore.Data.Archiving.ArchiveManager]::GetArchive("archive", $item.Database)



Now when you go to the Archive window, you will see the version you have archived.
