Using PowerShell cmdlets

Microsoft® Windows PowerShell® is a Windows® command-line shell and scripting language designed specifically for system administrators and built on top of the Microsoft .NET Framework. Security Explorer supports the use of PowerShell cmdlets.

What are cmdlets?

Windows PowerShell® has the concept of cmdlets. A cmdlet is a simple, single-function command that manipulates objects and is designed to be used in combination with other cmdlets.

If you already had Windows PowerShell installed on your computer before you installed Security Explorer, the Security Explorer cmdlets were automatically installed and registered with Windows PowerShell.

The examples in this section show you leverage the cmdlets available in Security Explorer. These cmdlets allow you to perform many of the functions of Security Explorer in an automation environment. The cmdlets also can be of great use in any environment where a repetitive process involving Security Explorer is needed.

This table lists the Access Explorer cmdlets included with Security Explorer.

Using Security Explorer cmdlets

IMPORTANT: All command utilities should be run while logged on as an Administrator. The Security Explorer® cmdlets must be run as an administrator with elevated privileges (if UAC is enabled). The Security Explorer cmdlets should be used only by those familiar with Windows PowerShell®.

The Security Explorer cmdlets function very similarly to the included command utilities. You can view help by typing the cmdlt name with no arguments or by typing get-help set-sxpbackup.

To use the Security Explorer cmdlets, you must create or edit the PowerShell.exe.config file, and install the cmdlets.
