PowerShell Event Logger

Version 5

    As our team makes more and more complex scripts and trigger actions, we were called on to write to the windows event log a custom entry.  This is the base code needed to use powershell to write to a custom windows event log.

     

    Prereq

    You will have to run this command to tell Windows that you are creating a new log source

    New-EventLog -LogName Application -Source [Your New Source Name Here]

     

    Requires Powershell Version 3 or above
