If you’re anything like me you always have PowerShell open, and often both PowerShell and Windows PowerShell. And PowerShell in VSCode and Terminal (and sometimes Jupyter Notebook, and WSL – Windows Subsystem for Linux).
There WILL come a point on Windows when you want to know where the heck is the PowerShell Module loading from (especially when using Windows PowerShell).… keep reading
Decentralised Identity is a technology I’m passionate about and have written many posts and tools on as well as participating in hackathons. Microsoft’s Entra Verified ID solution is an offering I’ve been a part of from the early previews. It can be time consuming setting up and getting all the configuration items correct.… keep reading
Over two years ago I authored a PowerShell Module that enabled the automation of 1Password. I created the module because I wanted to be able to:
- Securely store locally a configuration for accessing a 1Password online Vault
- Automate authentication and retrieve a Session Token for interaction with a 1Password online Vault

- Work in Windows PowerShell (5.x)

Buried in my PowerShell Snippets Vol 4 post from 2021 is the PowerShell script and a link to a PowerShell Module I authored named AzureADTenantID. Its sole purpose was to take a domain name (e.g., darrenjrobinson.com) and lookup return any associated Azure AD (now Entra ID) TenantID.… keep reading

Yes, it is 2023 and you did read the title correctly. Searching LDIF Files with PowerShell. But why?
Something I learned a few decades ago in Identity Management is that when you go live with an identity solution that updates Active Directory, you will get blamed for changes you didn’t do.… keep reading
It’s not going to be a surprise that I’ve been working with Decentralized Identity over the last couple of years. A common thing I find myself doing is checking/debugging DID documents. Like many others I started with tools like the ION Network Explorer for the ION network and pasting in DID Web URLs into a browser.… keep reading
I’ve just published v1.1.6 of the SailPoint IdentityNow PowerShell Module to both GitHub and the PowerShell Gallery. Release 1.1.6 of the SailPoint IdentityNow PowerShell Module is the result of updates by Sean McGovern, Yannick Beot, David Minnelli and myself.… keep reading
In this post I detail a module I’ve just published that is another of those I’ve done this before, but how do I find it again moments. Converting from Windows and Unix timestamps with PowerShell.
