Remotely managing your data center whether on-premises or in the cloud with PowerShell is very easy; if you have administrator privileges. But there are plenty of scenarios where you'd like to provide remote access but don't want to provide full admin access. That's where Just Enough Administration or JEA comes into play. With JEA you can safely provide access to non-admins and limit what commands they can run. You can even limit what parameters they use and what values can be accepted. In other words, just enough administration to get the job done. This session is intended to introduce JEA concepts and tools and demonstrate how you can get started today.

You will learn:

  • About delegated and constrained PowerShell remoting endpoints
  • How to use create a JEA endpoint
  • How to configure a JEA endpoint
