PowerShell Automation? Does it sound familiar to you?

Since we've launched the PowerShell automation feature, our team has been continuously working on it. The new support for Digital Signature allows you now to digitally sign your package in no time.

Take advantage of the new cmdlets to edit and explore your digital certificate by simply using the PowerShell commands.
