Hope this is the right place, I didn’t see a feature request board for PSU.
So, currently in my environment I have scheduled tasks running powershell scripts on machines feeding computer inventory data (Hardware, software, etc) back to a Powershell Universal API. Something I personally would be interested in would be a low-cost version of Powershell Universal that could be deployed to my managed devices that DOES support limited authentication (such as certificate based auth).
My imagined scenario would be something like this… Deploy PSU to devices, deploy pre-made scripts/configurations to devices. Devices would start PSU and have a set “configuration”.
Said configurations could be…
Scheduled jobs in PSU to run scripts
API’s for the server to communicate with to pull data on the fly
Maybe a dashboard with some live data.
To avoid a license being improperly used, limitations such as no Admin page access could be implemented, and limiting authentication in general to something like client certs and local administrators.
