Convert-Data Cmdlet

Parameters   Output Objects   Configuration Settings  

The Convert-Data cmdlet is used to encode or decode data from one format to another.

Syntax

Convert-Data [parameters]

Remarks

The data to encode or decode is specified by Data. If decoding, the format to use is set in the From parameter and when encoding, the format to use is set in the To argument. If both are specified, the data will be decoded using the format specified in From and encoded to the format specified in To.

Example The cmdlets support pipeline input for some of their parameters. Prebuilding an object and piping it to the cmdlet is very useful, but should be used with caution to prevent security conflicts. Steps have been taken to decrease the risk of a possibly accidental pipe to the cmdlet, for instance, the Credential parameter cannot be piped to the cmdlet and must be specified manually.


# encoding
convert-data -data test -to base64
# decoding
convert-data -data dGVzdA== -from base64
