PowerShell This is something that is very exciting and if you are interested you should try it. I found the post and tried it. Here is a function and how you use them.

  • Go to the kimono website and sign up for an account(http: //www.kimonolabs.com/signup)

This will get you an APIKey. Click your name once after you have logged in and then select your account.

  • Copy the API key and paste it below in the script and enjoy!
