Citrix.WEM

Powershell module for Citrix WEM

Detailed information for this module can be found on my Blog: https://msfreaks.wordpress.com

I started this project after onboarding several environments using Citrix WEM. Got real tired real fast of adding applications to the WEM Actions manually. This module contains functions to make an admin's life much easier when onboarding new environments in WEM.

This module quickly grew into something much bigger after all the attention it got. It now contains seven functions in total, covering all Group Policy preferences, Environmental Settings, Microsoft User State Virtualization Settings, and functions to run in a User Environment to mimic settings found there into WEM.

Using the functions in this module will create .xml files you can then import (restore) into WEM. These functions will not modify WEM or its database directly!

A big thank you to James Kindon (@james_kindon) for support, testing, suggestions, brainpicking, etc!
