There are two ways to interact with Remote Desktop Manager using PowerShell:

Module

Remote Desktop Manager PowerShell Module: a module that exposes many cmdlets that are used to "pilot" a LOCAL installation of Remote Desktop Manager.  As such, its quite different from most of the modules available out there since the great majority is used to communicate with a remote service. This means that it requires an interactive Windows session in a user context.

Custom Actions

Snippets of PowerShell code that can be executed directly in Remote Desktop Manager. The actions can be initiated using Edit Edit (Special Actions), Custom PowerShell Command. The advantages of this approach are:

1.No need to handle loading of the appropriate module for the instance of Remote Desktop Manager.

2.No need to handle filtering of entries, most of the times you would perform manual selection directly in your navigation pane, or even better use the advanced search to select entries in one fell swoop.
