You can now create jobs and pre/postprocessors using Windows PowerShell(TM) via the JobScheduler internal API and the JobScheduler PowerShell Adapter.

The Powershell Adapter significantly extends the range of scripts that can be run by the JobScheduler and is freely available under the GPL license.

The introduction of this extension means that JobSchedulers running on Windows can not only execute PowerShell via the command line but can now also run PowerShell scripts as jobs and pre- and postprocessing operations.

The adaptor opens the full power of the JobScheduler’s internal API and all internal JobScheduler objects for PowerShell scripts. Its introduction means, for example, that the full extent of the JobScheduler’s error handling and job and order generation features can now be accessed using PowerShell.

Adapter requirements: .net Framework 4, PowerShell 2
