Leveraging ChatGPT for PowerShell aid

As IT professionals, we perform numerous tasks daily. While automation is crucial, we often wonder if the time invested in scripting pays off. Let’s address this by leveraging AI.

Consider a common scenario: managing Azure resources. We want to identify resources lacking proper tags (such as username and environment). Instead of manually combing through the Azure portal, let’s automate this using PowerShell.

Getting Started with ChatGPT
1. Create a ChatGPT account.
2. Initiate a conversation with ChatGPT and request a PowerShell script.

ChatGPT-Generated PowerShell Script

Connect-AzAccount
$resources = Get-AzResource
foreach ($resource in $resources) {
if ($resource.Tags.Count -eq 0) {
Write-Output “Resource ‘$($resource.Name)’ ($($resource.Id)) does not have any tags.”
}
}

Understanding the Script
– We authenticate using `Connect-AzAccount`.
– We retrieve Azure resources using `Get-AzResource`.
– For each resource, we check if it lacks tags and display a message accordingly.

While the script works, we need to schedule its execution. Automating this task saves us valuable time, allowing us to focus on other critical aspects of our job.

In summary, integrating ChatGPT with PowerShell empowers us to automate tasks effectively. AI provides a starting point for scripts and explains their components, making our lives easier. 🚀
