Maintenance Tasks

In release 0.25.0 we released Maintenance Tasks. Inspired by PowerShell’s Desired State Configuration, Maintenance Tasks allow you control non-Software aspects of a machine.

We created a Maintenance Task that controls Power Options on Windows

Parameters

Each parameter is serialized and created as a proper variable in your PowerShell script.

Scripts

A proper Maintenance Task has 3 functions: Get, Set, and Test which correlate to the Monitor, Enforce and Audit modes.

If you only provide a Get script, the Maintenance Task is conceptually a “Monitor” for gathering data.

If you only provide a Set script, the Maintenance Task is conceptually “Fire-and-Forget” and only serves to provide a mechanism for bundling parameters to your script.

The scripts can be separate

Or the scripts can be all together.

When this option is selected, we provide a $Method variable containing “get”, “set”, or “test”. This encourages code re-use as the logic in the Get script is often needed in the Test script.

For the purposes of enforcement, the Get script isn’t necessary. The Test script returns a boolean indicating whether the settings are in compliance (given the parameters).

If deployed in Enforce mode, the Set script will be run, which when implemented correctly, will correct the deviation.
