The PowerShell scanner takes PDQ Inventory to a whole new level. With the PowerShell scanner, you can scan and access more data than ever before. If you can write a PowerShell script for it, you can bring that data into PDQ Inventory. We’ve just released PDQ Inventory 188.8.131.52 and with it, some great features to the PowerShell Scanner;
Inventory: Scan Profiles and Scanner creation is now available from the Toolbar.
Inventory: Scan Profiles can now be run as "Logged on User"
Inventory: Add variables to PowerShell Scanner.
Inventory: PowerShell Scanners will display a tooltip if the script contains parameters.
Inventory: PowerShell Scanner properties that represent a quantity of bytes will be displayed as file size.
We’ve created some scripts to help get you started on your PowerShell Scanner journey.
To co-opt a semi-famous phrase; “If you [script] it, [the data] will come”.
Not proficient in PowerShell? No problem; we also offer a Git repository of scripts that can be imported into Inventory. Of course, the more you see how powerful the scanner is, the more you might want to become a scripting wiz yourself. We also have a new area of our Community Forum if you want to strike up a conversation with other PowerShell users.
