From our continued success as a Platinum-level partner, Flycast Partners is considered Freshworks’ preferred partner for complex Freshservice ITSM implementations/integrations as well as a leading source of Freshservice knowledge and services. As part of our commitment to delivering high-quality services, our team of ITIL- and Freshworks-certified ITSM Consultants has created FreshservicePS, a comprehensive Freshservice PowerShell API Library, for diverse operational needs.
Built by the team who garnered Freshworks Global ITSM Strategic Partner of the Year, Flycast Partners believes in contributing to the Freshworks community. Our PowerShell Modules provide organizations with a versatile solution to administer, build, and streamline their Freshservice environment. By offering our expertise and experience to fellow users, we hope to foster a culture of collaboration and knowledge-sharing that empowers this community to succeed and thrive!
With our FreshservicePS PowerShell Modules, Freshservice Admins have the ability to:
- Make the Freshservice API simple to use with a command-line interface
- Manage Freshservice Ticket, Problems, Changes, Releases, Requesters, and more using simple commands
- Provide additional reporting and filtering capabilities
- Automate re-occurring tasks in Freshservice tenants
- Move data between Freshservice tenants
- Support DevOps and build, test, and deploy solutions in CI/CD operations
The FreshservicePS module aligns closely with the Freshservice API documentation, so be sure to reference notes, throttling and other import aspects of the Freshservice API.

Install FreshservicePS from the PowerShell Gallery!
Install-Module requires PowerShellGet.
# One time only install: Install-Module -Name FreshservicePS -Scope CurrentUser # Check for updates occasionally: Update-Module -Name FreshservicePS
Create a connection profile for FreshservicePS.
# To create a configuration to Freshservice: # Import the module Import-Module -Name FreshservicePS # Create a configuration to connect to the Production instance (i.e. https://acme-corp.freshservice.com) # API and set as the Default connection (automatically connect when importing the module): New-FreshServiceConnection -Name acme_prod -ApiKey 'gsfdgjkhdfs73jdsbd' -Tenant 'acme-corp' -Environment Production -Default $true # Create a configuration to connect to the Sandbox (i.e. https://its-fine-fs-sandbox.freshservice.com) # API to switch connections using Connect-Freshservice: New-FreshServiceConnection -Name acme_sbx -ApiKey 'gsfdgjkhdfs73jdsbd' -Tenant 'acme-corp' -Environment Sandbox -Default $false
Connect to an environment and execute commands:
# When importing the module, it will automatically connect to the default instance # (defined with the -Default switch with 'acme_prod'): Import-Module FreshservicePS # To switch to another connection, use the Connect-Freshservice cmdlet: Connect-Freshservice -Name acme_sbx
You can find the full documentation here and in the console.

Rate Limit (Throttling)
Highly recommend reviewing the rate limit documentation for Freshservice. The rate limit applies at the account level (not per API Key\account), so all accounts leveraging the API consume calls. This module performs pagination automatically and pipeline operations that can make many API calls very quickly, so throttling at the module level is default behavior to reduce the probability of a 429 Retry-After which makes the API inaccessible for the entire account for time period (usually 30-40 seconds). If bulk operations are being performed and no throttling should occur, use the NoThrottling switch:
Connect-Freshservice -Name my_instance -NoThrottling
