PowerShell Documentation Migration


Hi, I’m Zach Alexander and I’m a PM on the PowerShell Team working on documentation.

I wanted to let you know that there will be a brief downtime for online PowerShell documentation.

This downtime will occur on August 2nd and shouldn’t last more than a few hours. We will start around 4:30pm Pacific and estimate we will be back up by 7:30pm.

This downtime is needed so we can move our content off MSDN and onto https://docs.microsoft.com/! Moving to docs.microsoft.com means better community tools, better navigation, and a better reading experience.

This migration will not break most existing links. We will have redirection set up as part of the migration so most links end up going to the correct location. If we missed a link, feel free to file an issue on UserVoice or GitHub. This migration will also not affect our PowerShell Documentation repo on GitHub. We will continue to take suggestions and contributions from that repo, which will be rendered into the documents you see on docs.microsoft.com.

We’re excited to be moving to docs.microsoft.com! We have had a great experience open-sourcing our documentation, and continuing that journey with even better tooling can only mean even better docs!
