Playing with JSON and PowerShell—The Video

The Scripting Guys


Summary: Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy, presents a video where he describes converting JSON data with Windows PowerShell.

Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Today I present a video where I talk about using the ConvertFrom-JSON cmdlet to parse information returned via Invoke-WebRequest. I am using Windows PowerShell 5.0 on Windows 10 to illustrate this technique. It is powerful and useful, and it makes for a better experience than having to parse XML.

            Note  For more information about this technique, see Playing with JSON and PowerShell.


Here is a link to the video from YouTube if you would like to download it or play it offline in a different video player (like stream it on your Xbox One like I do): Converting JSON objects with PowerShell by Ed Wilson.

I invite you to follow me on Twitter and Facebook. If you have any questions, send email to me at, or post your questions on the Official Scripting Guys Forum. See you tomorrow. Until then, peace.
