Welcome to the PowerShell GitHub Community! PowerShell Core is a cross-platform (Windows, Linux, and macOS) automation and configuration tool/framework that works well with your existing tools and is optimized for dealing with structured data (e.g. JSON, CSV, XML, etc.), REST APIs, and object models. It includes a command-line shell, an associated scripting language and a framework for processing cmdlets.

Windows PowerShell vs. PowerShell Core

Although this repository started as a fork of the Windows PowerShell code base, changes made in this repository do not make their way back to Windows PowerShell 5.1 automatically. This also means that issues tracked here are only for PowerShell Core 6 and higher. Windows PowerShell specific issues should be opened on UserVoice.

Telemetry

By default, PowerShell collects the OS description and the version of PowerShell (equivalent to $PSVersionTable.OS and $PSVersionTable.GitCommitId) using Application Insights. To opt-out of sending telemetry, create an environment variable called POWERSHELL_TELEMETRY_OPTOUT set to a value of 1 before starting PowerShell from the installed location. The telemetry we collect falls under the Microsoft Privacy Statement.
