Use PowerShell to Retrieve Data from the Microsoft Health Dashboard

Use PowerShell to Retrieve Data from the Microsoft Health Dashboard

PowerShell everything. At least that’s the mantra that has been loudly proclaimed over the past few years since PowerShell has the ability to interact with so many things.

Case in point, there’s now a PowerShell module available for interacting with the data stored in the Microsoft Health Dashboard – the data collected and stored using the Microsoft Band. Called the PowerShell Module for Microsoft Health Cloud API, this module is a great example of how to build a PowerShell solution for basically anything. It’s also a great illustration of how PowerShell can be both productive and fun.

The module is just in its first iteration, so I’m sure more capabilities are coming. Right now, the module includes 4 commands for retrieving information about:

  • Health Activity

  • Health Device

  • Health Profile

  • Health Summary

Additionally, there’s the Auth2AccessToken command for establishing the connection.

The new module is available from GitHub and delivered by Stefan Stranger.
