A Windows Powershell Program Type is not included in Applications Manager by default. This article details the steps to create a basic Program Type and Program Type script to run Powershell Jobs.
1. Create 2 Program Type Scripts and place them in the %AW_HOME%\exec directory. The scripts should be as follows:


call %SQLOPER_HOME%\bin\oneline %SQLOPER_HOME%\run\%par%
call %SQLOPER_HOME%\c\ntspawn "%SQLOPER_HOME%\exec\callps.bat"
if not %errorlevel% == 0 set err=%errorlevel%


powershell -NonInteractive -ExecutionPolicy bypass -NoLogo -file %program% %args%

Script names can be changed accordingly.

2. Create the Program Type object.

Parameter format and Program Type Name can be changed accordingly. More information on defining a Program Type can be found at the documentation linked below:
3. Create a simple test Powershell script and place in the %AW_HOME%\exec directory. Below is a simple script to echos out 2 parameters:


echo $args[ 0 ]
echo $args[ 1 ]

4. Create Job with 2 Character Prompts (Job Name, Agent, Queue, script name can change accordingly).


Below is an excerpt of a successful run of the Job.
