Script Requirements

There are two basic requirements for using a script within Security Controls:

The script must contain metadata that uniquely identifies it and describes its functionality and input parameters

The script must be signed by an authority that is trusted by the machine that the console is running on

See Creating a Custom Script for more information on these and other script requirements.

Console Requirements

Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 or later

Windows PowerShell 4.0 or later: Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting language that is designed for system administration and automation

Operating System: All operating systems that support the Security Controls console will also support PowerShell 4.0

Target Machine Requirements

You do not need to install any additional software on the target machines. The script is run against selected target machines or machine groups without the services of WinRM (PowerShell remoting). The PowerShell client on the console communicates with the target machines by using other Windows remoting services such as remote registry service, remote Windows file sharing, WMI services, etc. The only ports required are the ports required by the Windows services being used.
