The PoSh DBA: Grown-Up PowerShell Functions
There comes a time after you’ve got used to using PowerShell to
automate your DBA chores that you look at all those PowerShell functions you’ve
written, and feel slightly dissatisfied. You realize, although everything works,
you could, be using PowerShell in way that is more easily enhanced, reused and
maintained. With some fairly simple
techniques, our PowerShell functions can become more reusable. They can be made
to behave much more like the built-in cmdlets that are provided with PowerShell.
You will, for example, want your
functions to participate in pipelines, so that you can use filters, sort the
order, group objects, write out the data and take advantage of other useful
PowerShell facilities. You’d probably benefit from other features of cmdlets
such as standard parameters, debug, ‘whatIf’, and command-line Help. This session will be
explaining how these features can help with scripting.
