How to create a Powershell Web Application? This article will give you some guidelines on how to deploy a very simple web application that leverages Powershell and if you follow it completely, you’ll be able to have a fully functional web application.
This is a very important instrument, especially when our goal is to automate as much as possible the environment and repetitive tasks or offload a 2nd or 3rd level task to a 1st level representative. You could build a web application to check permissions for a specific shared folder (I’ve done that successfully) or you could deploy an app that would check the current top 10 RAM processes being used on a remote server (super handy to hand off to a 1st level support team who many have no access to the server) and so on.
Please see the final notes at the end of this article.
You will need Visual Studio to follow this.
Creating a new Project
- Click on File > New > Project
- Select Installed > Templates > Visual C# > Web and click ASP .NET Web Application (.NET Framework). Give it a name (ITDropletsPowershell in the example).
- Since we want to start with a clean solution, let’s select “Empty” and click OK.
