Get command arguments in Powershell scripts

L3 Networker

Hi all

 

I'm trying to get Command-Arguments in a self-made script in Powershell.

 

On Python it is:
demisto.args().get('<command-argument>')

 

What is it in Powershell? Because I tried it with:
$demisto.Args()["<command-argument>"]

But this didn't worked on my self-made script. 

 

(Cortex XSOAR Version: 6.0.2 Build: 94597)

 

Thanks

roger

You can get the args passed in like this:

 

$value = $demisto.Args().value

$demisto.Results($value)

 

If you create a new automation script, and switch the type to Powershell, there is some example code provided.

Well, maybe it is the age of the post, but the "there is some example code provided" does not show any sample code nor have any links, even if you click (multiple times) on "View solution in original post".  A real let down when the reply from the question asker is, "That helped me. My script is now running" (ok, "runinng") so don't come after me the spelling police.

I do not use Cortex, but I believe the above accepted response is meaning that when you go into Cortex and create a new automation script, selecting Powershell as the script type, some sample code will appear in the new automation script. The sample is not in the post above (except for the example variable definition).

 

See the Cortex Automations Playbook document on creating new scripts and the script helper page:
