Hello everyone,

this week I´ve released the second version of the WVD AutoScaling Tool. This tool has been developed to help non-familiar PowerShell users getting started with Session Host scaling. The tool itself relies completely on Microsofts documentation and helps with a graphical user interface to configure scaling in less than 15 minutes! And the best thing - it´s for FREE! 

 

These features are included: 

  • Graphical User Interface (Modern Windows UI)
  • Secure connection to Azure (including MFA capabilities for your secure enrolment)
  • Provides all the steps mentioned in the official Microsoft documentation in just one single tool
  • Less than 2 minutes of user/admin interaction
  • Automated creation of the Automation Account
  • Automated creation of the required Run-As Account
  • Automated creation of the Logic App with all parameters
  • WebHook URI will be detected automatically
  • Your configuration will be saved in a file, if you need to quickly perform an update to your scaling, you don´t need to update the LogicApp from the Azure Portal / CLI
  • Always up-to-date, when Microsoft updates the script
  • Portable script / tool

 

Please find the feature video here:

As well as the download link and documentation here:

Reach out to me if you need any support, or in case that you have some ideas to improve it!

 

Looking forward hearing from you!

Cheers,

Patrick

Hi, when I launch your script it gives me this error. Do you know what could be happening to me?
