The CCS PowerShell snap-ins extend the functionality of the Windows PowerShell for the CCS users. You can integrate the CCS PowerShell snap-ins within your business processes to achieve the various functionalities in CCS. For example, assets management, standards management. You can install the CCS PowerShell snap-ins on a computer other than the CCS Application Server. You can run the CCS PowerShell cmdlets on the command-line interface (CLI) with a minimal scripting knowledge.
The CCS already provides the flexibility to the third-party clients to integrate the core functionality of CCS within their own business processes. To serve the purpose, all the application modules in the CCS expose their core functionality to the third-party clients through a set of APIs. In addition, the CCS 11.0 provides the CCS PowerShell snap-ins to automate the CCS tasks. For instance, creating a collection-evaluation job for a specific asset is possible through CLI without navigating to the CCS Console.
