How to know 2Ws of last executed PowerShell script in Sitecore

Does your team need to run scripts for adding, deleting or updating bulk content in sitecore?

Are you working with team of many resources, multiple environment and working remotely?

If any of the above is true for you, then at times you may also faced issues when some powershell script execution went into wrong direction and whole team just suffered/stuck after that.

If working with big teams and large amount of work in queue, it may become difficult to reach out to all and spend time to figure out cause and then resolve the solution. We do get information from the logs about script ran in past. However, it is not really wise to spend much time to troubleshoot a problem.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Sitecore has out of the box ISE in system folder to see WHO has ran the script previously in Sitecore and moreover it let us know WHAT exactly was last executed. This really helps to expedite the troubleshooting process.

You will find this at location – /sitecore/system/Modules/PowerShell/Settings/ISE (refer below image)

By default, Save last executed script checkbox is enabled.

Hope you find it useful!
