Description

The Invoke-PowerAppsChecker cmdlet first, uploads the file specified by the FileUnderAnalysis parameter, if provided, next submits an analysis job with the PowerApps checker service, monitors for status updates, and when completed, downloads a compressed report file. The file provided is a JSON formatted report, which is in Static Analysis Results Interchange Format (SARIF). A Microsoft.PowerApps.Checker.Client.Models.AnalyzeResult object is returned.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> $rulesets = Get-PowerAppsCheckerRulesets -Geography Europe
PS C:\> $rulesetToUse = $rulesets | where Name -EQ 'AppSource Certification'
PS C:\> $analyzeResult = Invoke-PowerAppsChecker -Geography Europe -ClientApplicationId 'dc316d60-f8a8-4b75-b835-ba81054a0b0e' `
    -TenantId '3a11a289-d956-408f-92f6-eddb3413abc2' -Ruleset $rulesetToUse -FileUnderAnalysis "C:\src\mysolution.zip" `
    -OutputDirectory "C:\out"

In this example the data is run in the European data centers and using the AppSource Certification ruleset as the list of rules for the PowerApps checker service to use in its analysis. This is an example of an interactive approach. A prompt will be received to login to the Azure tenant. The user must reside in the tenant provided as well as have access to login to the application provided.

Example 2

PS C:\> $rulesets = Get-PowerAppsCheckerRulesets -Geography Europe
PS C:\> $rulesetToUse = $rulesets | where Name -NE 'AppSource Certification'
PS C:\> $analyzeResult = Invoke-PowerAppsChecker -Geography Europe -ClientApplicationId 'dc316d60-f8a8-4b75-b835-ba81054a0b0e' `
    -TenantId '3a11a289-d956-408f-92f6-eddb3413abc2' -Ruleset $rulesetToUse -FileUnderAnalysis "C:\src\mysolution.zip" `
    -OutputDirectory "C:\out" -ClientApplicationSecret (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force -String '*************************************')

In this example the data is run in the European data centers and using the AppSource Certification ruleset as the list of rules for the PowerApps checker service to use in its analysis. This is an example of an approach to be used in non-interactive scenarios,such as automated builds and deployments. No prompt will be received to login to the Azure tenant.

Parameters

-ApiUrl

URL of the PowerApps checker root service endpoint. Unless provided a direct URL from Microsoft, Geography should be used.
