|This is for use with GetWeb and requires the GetWeb interface be configured. Basic information and an overview of GetWeb can be found here:
Configuration steps can be found in our video tutorial series here:
You can also find detailed information in the PageGate Admin - GetWeb section of our documentation:
The following Powershell script can be used to make calls to GetWeb's CGI Executable.
# set each part of the URL to send
# set message to all the text sent on the command line
# url encode message text
# build the request URL
$FullUrl=$UrlToCgi + $RecipientVar + $Recipient + $SenderVar + $Sender + $MessageVar + $Message
# send the request
Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $FullUrl
This is only compatible with Powershell v3 or newer.
Some systems might not have script execute rights. A way to temporarily give the right is to run the following command in the current powershell session:
Set-ExecutionPolicy -Scope Process -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
You'll want to update the UrlToCgi value to the URL to your hosted webgate.exe
Update the Recipient value to the name of the recipient or group you want the messages delivered to. This doesn't necessarily have to be a static value, it can be set to a variable value. However, the name variable you submit to the field must match the name of a recipient or group as it exists in the PageGate Admin.
Update the Sender variable with the desired sender's name.
