I've been told by quite a few people in tech support that PowerShell is very ... powerfull and can do a lot of different things. I'm trying to teach myself the capabilities but it seems hard to find good documentation on what it can do. I know Live Library has a list of commands, but even the command specific instructions I find are lacking (sorry OSI people). This is all probably because I'm trying to write scripts when I have very little programming background; maybe actual software types can pick it up easier.
All that to say: Is there a way to run Analysis Backfill/Recalculation commands from Powershell?
I have a template that is pretty complicated with a lot of interdependent Analysis. So when I create an instance (which I've done 3 of 10) I need to execute the instance specific Analysis in order. Since we have a pretty good history on the raw data, I typically run a 3-5 month backfill. The Management tab allows you to run multiple Analysis, but it's by Analysis template (I really wish there were more ways to filter and sort that list! I can't even figure out how it's sorted now.). But there's no window that allows me to see and quickly run Backfill. In element view I can see them all, but it takes time to load each Analysis I click on. Management is quicker, but I have to hunt through the list of Analysis for the one I want.
My ideal would be a PowerShell script that allows me to isolate an instance or a few, and run specified Analysis in pre-determined order.
