Creating a powershell script to take information from AWS and AZURE AD tags and input that into solarwinds

Hi, I’m trying to create a powershell script which will automate logging into AWS and Azure AD, take information from specific tags then input that information to the relevant places in solarwinds. Currently, I have no knowledge on how to do this so any help would be fantastic.

Show us your script.

Create a credential profile

encrypts your credentials and stores them in your home folder

Set-AWSCredential -AccessKey
-SecretKey `
-StoreAs MyNewProfile

connect to SolarWinds

$Hostname = “localhost”
$Username = “admin”
$Password = “”
$swis = Connect-Swis -Hostname $Hostname -Username $Username -Password $Password

set default values for AWS profile and region

Set-AWSCredential -ProfileName MyNewProfile
Set-DefaultAWSRegion -Region us-east-2

list of tags to sync

$tags = “Environment”, “Owner”

gather all instance IDs

$instanceIDs = @()
$reservations = Get-EC2Instance
foreach($res in $reservations) {
foreach($inst in $res.Instances) {
$instanceIDs += $inst.InstanceId

iterate through the list of instance IDs

foreach ($instanceID in $instanceIDs) {
# get the tag values for this instance
$tagValues = Get-EC2Tag -Filter @{Name=“resource-id”;Values=$instanceID}, @{Name=“key”;Values=$tags}

# get the custom properties for the corresponding node
$node = Get-SwisData $swis "SELECT Nodes.NodeID
    , CP.Uri
    , CP.Environment
    , CP.Owner
    FROM Orion.Nodes AS Nodes
    LEFT JOIN Orion.Cloud.Aws.Instances AS Instances ON Nodes.NodeID = Instances.NodeID
    LEFT JOIN Orion.NodesCustomProperties AS CP ON Nodes.NodeID = CP.NodeID
    WHERE InstanceId = '$($instanceID)'"

# update the value for each custom property if needed
foreach($tag in $tagValues) {
    # check if the custom property is empty
    if(!$node.($tag.Key)) {
        # if it is empty, update it with the AWS tag value
        $props = @{
            ($tag.Key) = $tag.Value;

        Set-SwisObject $swis -Uri $node.Uri -Properties $props


I have this so far, this was given to me, and I was told changes needed to be made for it to work properly, thanks.

So please go back, edit your last post and fix the formatting of your code.

This forum is for scripting questions rather than script requests. We do not write customized and ready to use scripts or solutions on request. And we do not review or refactor scripts you’ve found on the internet of have been given by colleagues.

What have you tried so far? We expect you to make an own attempt to get your task done or to solve your problem. If you have done so already please document here what exactly you have done and show your code. Then we probably might be able to help you step further.
