PDQ Inventory

PowerShell Scanner

The PowerShell Scanner takes PDQ Inventory to a whole new level. With the PowerShell Scanner, you can scan and access more data than ever before. If you can write a PowerShell script for it, you can bring that data into PDQ Inventory. We’ve just released PDQ Inventory and with it, some great features to the PowerShell Scanner.

New features

We’ve created some scripts to help get you started on your PowerShell Scanner journey.

  • Scan Profiles and Scanner creation is now available from the Toolbar.  

  • Scan Profiles can now be run as "Logged on User"  

  • Add variables to PowerShell Scanner.

  • PowerShell Scanners will display a tooltip if the script contains parameters.  

  • PowerShell Scanner properties that represent a quantity of bytes will be displayed as file size.  

What type of data can I gather?

To co-opt a semi-famous phrase; “If you [script] it, [the data] will come”

Not proficient in PowerShell? No problem; we also offer a Git repository of scripts that can be imported into Inventory. Of course, the more you see how powerful the Scanner is, the more you might want to become a scripting wiz yourself.

We also have a new area of our Community Forum if you want to strike up a conversation with other PowerShell users.
