In the latest release of the PowerShell SDK (1.7.4.0) we included a new cmdlet for sending CLI commands to the FlashArray. We added this cmdlet in case any new REST APIs had not been integrated into the PowerShell SDK and customers/partners wanted to access a direct CLI command. You can pass a CLI command and we establish the SSH session, execute the command and then return the results as a PSObject.

Now for the cool “side effect” you can use the very same cmdlet to access a FlashBlade! Below is a simple example of querying information from the FlashBlade.

Hopefully this opens us some automation scenarios for those FlashBlade customers.
