Powershell Plane Alerter Script

Post by thenecroscope » Thu Sep 27, 2018 12:53 pm

Hi,

This might be of interest to some people, below is a Powershell Core (6.1) script to monitor and/or send alerts using the ADSBExchange API.
It will send notification to either Slack or Twitter, it can easily be tweaked to send to any other comms channel.

Script details can be found here:

Any feedback welcome. Thanks.

Future Ideas:
1, Export the CSV files into Grafana and/or ELK
2, Refactor code to use better functions and tidy up some messy code, better variables names etc...

I've now updated the script to version 2(still WIP).

I've removed the hard coded values in the script and just created a single config file. See here for more details:
