Any plans to support for certificate based authentication for the powershell toolkit

As per the title, one my customers has queried if there are any plans for connect-nccontroller to allow certificiate based authentication from the credential cache so we could use 

 

PS> $cert = Get-Credential

PS> connect-nccontroller <controller. -Credential $cred -HTTPS

 

I know the underlying NMSDK allows this.

Re: Any plans to support for certificate based authentication for the powershell toolkit

You might be able to use the CredentialManager module (available in the PSGallery at https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/CredentialManager/2.0) to accomplish this. Something like:

 

$creds = Get-StoredCredential <name of certificate-based cred in the Windows Credential Manager> 

Connect-NcController <controller> -Credential $creds -HTTPS 

 

I have not tested this to see if it would actually work, but it might lead you down the right path. Hope that helps!
