Getting help

The best way to get started and learn about the different cmdlets available is to install the tools onto your D365FO developer box. You can also visit the 'docs' folder in this repository (look at the top). Click this link docs to jump straight inside.

Since the project started we have adopted and extended the comment based help inside each cmdlet / function. This means that every single command contains at least one fully working example on how to run it and what to expect from the cmdlet.

Getting help starts inside the PowerShell console

Getting help is as easy as writing Get-Help CommandName

Get-Help New-D365Bacpac

This will display the available default help

Getting the entire help is as easy as writing Get-Help CommandName -Full

Get-Help New-D365Bacpac -Full

This will display all available help content there is for the cmdlet / function

Getting all the available examples for a given command is as easy as writing Get-Help CommandName -Examples

Get-Help New-D365Bacpac -Examples

This will display all the available examples for the cmdlet / function

We know that when you are learning about new stuff and just want to share your findings with your peers, working with help inside a PowerShell session isn't that great.

Web based help and examples

We have implemented platyPS (https://github.com/PowerShell/platyPS) to generate markdown files for each cmdlet / function available in the module. These files are hosted here on github for you to consume in your web browser and the give you the look and feel of other documentation sites.

The generated help markdown files are located inside the 'docs' folder in this repository. Click this link to jump straight inside.

For sake of the sanity and just trying to help people out, we copy & pasted all the old examples previously available in the readme into the wiki. The page is located here. We don't plan on keep the "Old readme examples" wiki up-to-date going forward. If you believe we are missing some examples that should be part of the comment based help, please create an issue.
