To help you get started with VMware PowerCLI, this documentation provides a set of sample scripts that illustrate basic and advanced tasks in the vSphere Automation SDK administration.

PowerCLI exposes the vSphere Automation SDK on a low level, similarly to what the Get-CisService cmdlet offers for other supported APIs. The returned vSphere Automation SDK views are dynamic objects that expose a specific suite service that you request, and provide helper utilities for instantiating sample values for parameters, obtaining metadata, and so on.
