History

v2.0

  • Implemented pipeline support for Get-StoredCredential.
  • Implemented pipeline support for New-StoredCredential.
  • Implemented pipeline support for Remove-StoredCredential.
  • Improved error handling to respect the Error Action Preference in PowerShell.
  • Changed AsPSCredential to a Switch parameter and renamed to AsCredentialObject on Get-StoredCredential to make it easier to use.
  • Added Credentials parameter to New-StoredCredential which accepts a PSCredential object instead of User name and Password.
  • Added SecuserPassword parameter to New-StoredCredential which accepts a SecureString as the password.
  • Credential object now returns LastWritten as a DateTime instead of a ComType.FILETIME
  • Changing license to MIT from GPL
  • General refactoring and bug fixes.

v1.1 Bug Fix

Fixed a bug where the username specified in the -UserName parameter was not being used to create the credential in the store. The username for the logged on user was being used instead. Issue logged https://github.com/davotronic5000/PowerShell_Credential_Manager/issues/8

v1.0 Initial Release

Implementing basic functionality

  • Get-StoredCredential - Gets one or more credentials from the Windows Credential Manager.
  • New-Stored Credential - Adds a new credential to the Windows Credential Manager.
  • Remove-StoredCredential - Deletes a credential from the Windows Credential Manager.
  • Get-StrongPassword - Randomly generates a new password.
