PowerShell® Plugin

The PowerShell plugin allows you to execute scripts for specific events or situations in the system. Based on a widespread available technology, this lets you design your own individual extensions for tenfold.

Benefits

You can use the Windows Server (or other Windows products) PowerShell-extensions to address or change Active Directory objects, or even to carry out more complex procedures, like rolling out software to client-devices. The entire scope of functions is at your disposal and thus there are no limits to your creativity.

Features

The scripts are executed via the tenfold Agent, which must be installed on one of the supported operating systems in advance. The scripts can be conveniently uploaded via the tenfold web interface and are stored in the database.

As soon as the script is to be executed, it is transferred in encrypted form to the respective tenfold agent, which then executes the script in a specially created session. Parameters can be passed to the script by tenfold. If the script runs as part of the provisioning of a resource, the entire context of the respective request is automatically available to the script (all data on the request creator, recipient, resource and the like). Errors are reported back to tenfold by the agent and logged automatically. Once the error has been corrected, the execution can be repeated.

The “Import-Session” command triggers a remote session through which you can then execute scripts on servers other than the one tenfold agent is installed on.

Limitations

Some plugin functions in the Essentials Edition and Essentials Plus Edition are restricted: you can, for instance, run scripts for global events, e.g. automatic generation and configuration of a terminal server profile path after a user has been created.

However, since only the Enterprise Edition allows you to determine user-defined resources, you can not use the PowerShell plugin for resource provisioning purposes. Please note: items that are depicted as resources in tenfold are – among others – business applications and permissions.

If you are unsure whether you will be able to use certain functions, due to the limitations mentioned above, please contact one of our partners or send us an inquiry to: info@tenfold-security.com
