Rubrik SDK for PowerShell 5.0.1 Now Available

We recently released the latest version (5.0.1) of Rubrik’s most popular SDK, the Rubrik SDK for PowerShell.

Last summer, we began formulating a strategy to make the module more maintainable and accessible, which we dubbed “Project Quokka.” This included migrating the module to Azure DevOps for CI, creating unit tests that allow for simplified validation if future changes in the code are breaking existing functionality, and providing updated and complete documentation for all private and public functions in the module.

Get-Started with the Rubrik PowerShell Module

Rubrik APIs make it easy to interact, extract data, and build custom workflows. To empower our customers and make it even simpler to interact with our platform, SDKs for Go and Python have recently been made available. We’re excited to extend Rubrik’s focus on APIs with our updated PowerShell module. The PowerShell module contains a set of functions and cmdlets that can be used to connect to the Rubrik platform.

PowerShell Core, the most recent release of PowerShell, makes PowerShell compatible with not only Windows PowerShell, but also platforms such as MacOS and Linux. The new update of the Rubrik PowerShell module gives you the ability to run scripts created on your platform of choice, allowing you to leverage the power of PowerShell and Rubrik from any device and on any supported operating system. To get started with this module, you will need to have PowerShell installed (available as a free download here).…
