  • Nothing yet - the PowerShell module currently only supports PowerShell 5.x.  There is a current issue on GitHub about the compatibility.  It originally stemmed from a missing requirement in .NET Core.  I think it would be useful to make a note on this issue or create another issue specifically to PowerShell 7.

    The above issue tracker is something that I think should possibly get bumped up so that we can support the SWIS calls on non-Windows PowerShell installations.
