Getting started with the ChangeBASE PowerShell Module

In order to use the ChangeBASE APIs, you will need to do the following

  1. Ensure you have the necessary pre-requisites to run the PowerShell scripts (see here for details)
  2. Download and save the ChangeBASE PowerShell module locally, for this example we will assume it exists in the directory "C:\ChangeBASE_API"
  3. Open a PowerShell command line shell or PowerShell editor (for example PowerGUI or PowerShell ISE)
  4. Execute the following command:
    Import-Module C:\ChangeBASE_API\ChangeBASE-Module.psm1
    This should return the message
    Loading API from [path]
    where [path] is the full path to the ChangeBASE API dll. In a 64bit system this will most likely be
    “C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\ChangeBASE\CB.API.dll”

Assuming no errors were returned you can now move on to the next stage of logging on to the ChangeBASE Service
