Figure 2-46 Windows PowerShell ISE 3.0 with the GetO365LicInfo.ps1 script.
Let us explore the ISE. Notice that the ISE includes the following areas:
A script authoring pane
A verbose console pane
A command-list pane
To run the script, just click the Play button located on the toolbar across the top. If you
need to verbosely enter cmdlets, you can do so in the console pane at the bottom. You can
hide or show any of the panes by using the View menu.
Detailed use of the ISE is beyond the scope of this topic. This brief introduction to the ISE
should help you get started with using it to administer Office 365 and to follow along with
the examples and exercises throughout this topic. However, you will find the ISE to be a
very useful and intuitive tool. As consultants, we use it extensively.
