Do you have a script already which does not work for you?

No, i dont create. But when looking for such script. i came across this below one:
#Download SubInACL.msi to Desktop
Get-FileAndExtract 'http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/7/d/17d82b72-bc6a-4dc8-bfaa-98b37b22b367/subinacl.msi' "$([Environment]::GetFolderPath("Desktop"))"
#Download and extract the contents of SysinternalSuite.zip to Desktop\SysInternalSuite (folder SysInternalSuite is created)
Get-FileAndExtract 'http://download.sysinternals.com/files/SysinternalsSuite.zip' "$([Environment]::GetFolderPath("Desktop"))"
#Download and extract the contents of WorkSmartGuides.zip to Desktop\WorkSmartGuides (no folder is created since .zip already contains folder)
Get-FileAndExtract 'http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/C/2/1C2D966E-F713-4A4F-9D5C-F7FB6E93E4B9/WorkSmartGuides.zip' "$([Environment]::GetFolderPath("Desktop"))"

Ok. Please see if below is something you can work with.
$uri = 'http://examples.com/Data.xlsx' $outFile = 'C:\TEMP\MyExcel.xlsx' $creds = Get-Credential Invoke-WebRequest -UseBasicParsing -Uri $uri -OutFile $outFile -Credential $creds -Verbose

step 1: i this is home page in which i will suppy credential (for security pupose i replaced my own site name as exapmple.com)
Step 2: After logged in, i will click on "Report" Link which will invoke seperate webpage(https://north.fin.exapmple.com:8080/arsys/forms/remprod/AR+System+Report+Console/Default+Administrator+View/?cacheid=c463911d)

I believe that won't be something that PowerShell can solve for you because the report you're accessing through the web UI will be generated dynamically. You would need something like Selenium to drive a browser.
– Work with the team responsible for your BMC Remedy environment they are usually not bad people to export on their end and upload to an FTP/SFTP server of your choice.
– Create an email subscription and get the report send into a shared mailbox. Assuming you have Exchange as email backend you could now use the Exchange Web Services API with PowerShell to detach the report from an email onto the disk.
I hope that makes sense.
P.S. I don't have access to an BMC Remedy system to help you further.

Shouldn't there also be a Rest API available for Remedy that would allow you to pull the information required???
