      Good day,

      Recently we have been working to move our Powershell modules and script to source control. We have setup a repository per module in azure devops and created a pipeline which when pull request is merged to master it does basic testing. Can module import, does it have manifest and pester de-linting. After all this it then does a nuget package and push to nuget feed.

      My user account created the feed and i am listed as owner.

      I attempted to register-psrepository however it continually fails unless i add credential parameter (get-credential).

      My questions are is it possible to automate this so if others in my group open a powershell session if will connect to the feed and allow them to import-module directly from the feed?


      I have been looking at articles on the web but feel like i am doing something wrong.


      Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

      Hi Jason,

      If you understood you correctly, the method below will be helpful…

      # Save the credentials - One time and interactive 
      $UserName = 'UserName'
      $PlainPassword = 'PlainText'
      $FileShare = '\\Server\Share\GalleryCredential.xml'
      $SecurePassword = $PlainPassword | ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force
      $Credential = New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList $UserName, $SecurePassword
      $Credential | Export-Clixml -Path $FileShare
      # Add this piece of code in the user profiles or in the automation script
      $FileShare = '\\Server\Share\GalleryCredential.xml'
      $Credential = Import-Clixml -Path $FileShare
      $PSDefaultParameterValues = @{"*-Module:Credential"=$Credential}

      Thank you.
