  4. 4.  What is Windows Powershell? o Powershell is the new extensible command-line shell we can run on any Windows Server or desktop that allows for automating administrative tasks, executing any other command-line toolset, or for calling any regular .NET class, including those for the SharePoint platform. What does this really mean? o Powershell allows for automating repetitive maintenance tasks, modularizing scripts to “snap-on” future functionality, built-in enumeration objects, and calling any other command-line or .NET object to get work done (e.g. FTP, file-shares, email, etc.). Everything that is queried or returned to us is an „object‟ that has all of the available properties and methods. Western Mass Microsoft User Group--Using Powershell to Manage SharePoint 1/11/2012 4

  12. 12.  We still have a handle to the SharePoint site object to manipulate So what does it take? o We open a new SubWeb object (but this can be done at any level) o Inside of our SubWeb object, create a new List object o On the new List object, create an instance of an item, add column-value pairs that match the SharePoint List, o Finally call the .Update() method to add new item Western Mass Microsoft User Group--Using Powershell to Manage SharePoint 1/11/2012 12
  13. 13.  Demo: Add a new Announcement to our SharePoint site Western Mass Microsoft User Group--Using Powershell to Manage SharePoint 1/11/2012 13
  14. 14.  Powershell can manage any Microsoft server or platform (some actually have inherent cmdlets available e.g. Exchange 2007, SQL, etc.) Not only is Microsoft moving all server/platforms to this model, many vendors are doing the same with their software packages and/or tools Powershell not only talks to almost any command-line interface, but allows for reflexive decisions based on that data Western Mass Microsoft User Group--Using Powershell to Manage SharePoint 1/11/2012 14
