Ayo Olubeko of the SQL Server Blog writes in the SQL PowerShell: July 2016 update. The July update for SSMS includes the first substantial improvement in SQL PowerShell in many years. We owe a lot of thanks for this effort to the great collaboration with our community. We have several new CMDLETs to share with you, but firstly, there is a very important change we had to make to be able to ship monthly updates to the SQL PowerShell component.


Historically, SQL Server’s PowerShell components are included in both the SSMS (tools) installer as well as with the SQL Server engine install. In order to be able to ship SQL PowerShell update, we had to change the identity of the SQL PowerShell module as well as the wrapper known as SQLPS.exe. This change has an impact to scripts doing Import-Module.

This month we introduce CMDLETs for the following areas:

  • Always Encrypted
  • SQL Agent
  • SQL Error Logs

Additionally, we have made some nice improvements to Invoke-SqlCmd and the SQL provider.
