Welcome to PowervRA
PowervRA is a PowerShell module built on top of the services exposed by the vRealize Automation 7 REST API.
Note: this module is not in any way developed or supported by anyone officially affiliated with VMware
** Support for 6.2.4 is limited given API restrictions. Functions which don't support 6.2.4 will exit early and cleanly.
** To get up and running with PowerShell Core follow the instructions for your operating system here.
PowerShell v5 & v6 users: You grab the latest version of the module from the PowerShell Gallery by running the following command:
Install-Module -Name PowervRA
PowerShell v4 users: Try this handy one liner to download and install the module:
(new-object Net.WebClient).DownloadString("https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jakkulabs/PowervRA/master/Get-PowervRA.ps1") | iex
As of version 2.0.0 we now have our own docker image.
Getting started is easy, just run the following commands:
docker pull jakkulabs/powervra docker run --rm -it jakkulabs/powervra
For more information see this readme.
Once you have installed and imported PowervRA, use Connect-vRAServer to connect to your vRA instance:
Connect-vRAServer -Server vra.corp.local -Tenant tenant01 -Credential (Get-Credential)
If your instance has a self signed certificate you must use the IgnoreCertRequirements switch:
Connect-vRAServer -Server vra.corp.local -Tenant tenant01 -Credential (Get-Credential) -IgnoreCertRequirements
