This five-day instructor-led course is intended for IT Professionals who have a working knowledge of Windows PowerShell 3.0 techniques and technologies, and who want to build reusable tools by using Windows PowerShell 3.0. Students of this course may administer a wide variety of server and client products and technologies that offer Windows PowerShell integration, including Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft Windows Active Directory Domain Services, Microsoft SharePoint Server, and more. This course focuses on the Windows PowerShell scripting language, and on the concepts and techniques needed to produce reusable, professional tools.
This course is intended for administrators that have little or no programming experience, but who have a working knowledge of Windows PowerShell and who are able to use Windows PowerShell to run complex, interactive commands.
This module explains how to prepare the environment for scripting, and provides refresher and background information for scripting.
This module explains how to start with an existing command and parameterize it to create a reusable tool.
This module explains how to turn a basic script into a script module that can be distributed, loaded, and unloaded in Windows PowerShell.
This module explains how to trap and handle errors within a script module.
This module explains how to write commands that integrate with the Windows PowerShell pipeline. Students will create commands that produce pipeline output and that accept pipeline input.
Understanding Pipeline Parameter Binding
Implementing Pipeline Parameter Input
Implementing Pipeline Parameter Input
Lab : Writing Commands that Use Pipeline Inout and Output
Adding Pipeline Input Capability to Parameters
Working with Pipeline Input
Creating Custom Output Objects
Outputting Objects to the Pipeline
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Create commands that accept pipeline input.
Create commands that consolidate multiple data sources into Windows PowerShell pipeline output.
Module 6: Creating Hierarchical Command Output
This module explains how to create, and use, object-oriented output that includes object hierarchies.
This module explains Windows PowerShell techniques used to debug scripts, and provides students with opportunities to practice debugging skills.
This module explain how to create a custom formatting view that can be added to a script module.
This module explains how to declare parameter aliases, help messages, and input validation. It also explains how to implement switch parameters, how to add support for the –WhatIf and –Confirm parameters, and how to add comment-based help to a command.
This module explains how to create scripts that implement complex business processes by running multiple tools in a specified sequence.
This module explains how to write controller scripts that produce HTML-based management reports.
This modules explains the key differences between Windows PowerShell functions and workflows, and shows students how to create a basic workflow.
This module explains how Windows PowerShell interprets, represents, and manipulates XML-based data.
This module explains how to use advanced scripting techniques, including execution of external commands and graphical user interfaces.
This module explains how to create proxy functions in Windows PowerShell.
This module is a “final exam” for the course, and offers students the opportunity to build a complete tool, from scratch, using many of the techniques that they have learned in the preceding days.
