Overview

The 3 scripts that are made available here are:

CPAPI-Authenticate.ps1

CPAPI-Show-Hosts.ps1

CPAPI-Add-Host.ps1

They are meant to serve as proof of concept for building a modular library of such scripts, with an eye towards creating a Powershell module that will allow users to manage Check Point deployments from Microsoft Powershell, in a fashion similar to the Azure and AWS modules.

CPAPI-Authentiate.ps1 is a self-standing script for authenticating users and getting from the management server the security id that allows users to authenticate when using the API. The other scripts each hit a different API, and use the token and server objects created by the Authentication script, in the construction of the requests they create. The 2 scripts invoke the authentication script if they fail to find valid objects.

 

Description

See this doc and the help sections of the script
