Windows PowerShell was developed by Microsoft for the purposes of task automation and configuration management. PowerShell is an open-source project, and it can be installed on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux platforms. It is based on the .NET framework, and it includes a command-line shell and a scripting language. It's more powerful than the Command Prompt, as it delivers more control over the Windows operating system. It can help you simplify and automate tedious and repetitive tasks by creating scripts and combining multiple commands. Atera enables you to remotely send PowerShell commands to your end users' devices.
To remotely send PowerShell commands:
1. Navigate to Devices (on the side panel).
2. Next to the specific device, click the Manage dropdown menu and select PowerShell
The PowerShell window appears.
Note: This feature is only accessible if the customer has PowerShell installed or is using PowerShell version 5.1 or above. You can install (or upgrade) PowerShell to access the feature.
