AAPIPS – grommunio’s Admin API for PowerShell

The latest release of grommunio 2022.12.1 provides a completely new Powershell interface that makes life easier for administrators.

The Powershell admin interface “Admin API for Powershell” AAPIPS gives Microsoft administrators direct, interactive access to the long list of features of the grommunio Admin API – covering all system-related tasks and complete server administration.

grommunio’s Admin API for PowerShell integrates with any PowerShell-based administration framework and works as an interface to the REST-based grommunio Admin API to manage complete grommunio installations via PowerShell – Microsoft’s task automation and configuration management program for administrators.

AAPIPS is fully documented, see the source code here: https://github.com/grommunio/aapi-powershell.

About the grommunio Admin API

Under the surface of AAPIPS is the central API component of grommunio: The Admin API, which enables efficient management of your appliance(s), domain(s), user(s) and more – up to the orchestration of all components and architectures, for the operation and management of the entire grommunio stack. The REST API is based on OpenAPI 3.0, comes with an interactive CLI (and web-based access via grommunio Admin Web).

With this API, admins can manage grommunio components, users, groups and mailing lists, LDAP-backends, fetchmail accounts, public folders, roles and tenants, domains and much much more: The API also delivers real time access to logs, connection data, status, mobile devices and supports load balancers as haproxy, apisix, KEMP and others.
