Community Project for System Center Orchestrator (SCORCH) Integration Packs and Utilities

PowerShell Modules

In an effort to migrate internally from SC Orchestrator to SC Service Management Automation we have been diligently working to migrate most of the modules available here to PowerShell Modules. To this end I am proud to promote the following




  • This module allows for interacting with Exchange through EWS. Used for reading and sending email
  • Available at
    • Get-EWSFolder
    • New-EWSMailboxConnection
    • Read-EWSEmail
    • Send-EWSEmail
    • Send-EWSMeetingInvite

Current Utilities

Orchestrator Health Checker

  • It allows to monitor the SCOrch 2012 (RTM and SP1) environment as a whole allowing amoung several things:
    • to see running and queued up Runbooks (summarized or per Runbook Server)
    • Get information of each specific instance connecting it with its PID
    • Ability to Stop the Runbook Tree (child, grandchild, etc Runbooks) as well as per Runbook Server
    • To execute Administrative Tasks such as: Stop All Runbooks, Stop All Monitoring Runbooks (Runbooks which their namess start with “Monitor “), Clear Orphaned Runbooks, Customized Log Purge, Start All Monitoring Runbooks (by invoking a Runbook specified in the application config file)
    • To verify the health of the system and the database (index fragmentation, files’ sizes, rebuild index) as well as Log Purge trending
    • To audit the environment Runbooks created, modified, deleted and still checked out since a certain date.
    • Ability to update password on Activities. Just specifying the User ID, the application will update all occurrences on Activities within Runbooks (if the Activity is not configured, you can add it by editing ActivitiesInfo.xml. Also, ability to update password on Variables and Configurations however the old password will be required and it works as a "Search and Replace" looking for the old password and replacing it by the new one.
    • NEW: Search Variable usage in all Activities
    • NEW: Running Statistics to verify Runbook Server % of usage. Monitor and Ad-hoc Runbook count. Status of all Monitor runbooks.
    • NEW: Fixed small bugs
    • NEW: Filter main view by Runbook Server or Runbook Name
    • NEW: Added new admin options
    • And more!
  • How to configure it?
    • No installation is required!
    • Configuration is done through the Application Config File. You should specify the ConnectingString to your SCOrch Database (required) and your Web Service URL as well as Start Monitor Runbook’s runbook name (optional). Check included .config file for reference, you just need to replace the word “MyEnvironment” or “My Environment” by whatever name you want (It suppots multiple-entries):

<add name="MyEnvironment_SCORCH_DB" connectionString="Server=SCORCH_SQL_SERVERNAME;Database=SCORCH_DB_NAME;Trusted_Connection=True;"/>
<add name="My Environment_SCORCH_DB" connectionString="Server=SCORCH_SQL_SERVERNAME;Database=SCORCH_DB_NAME;Trusted_Connection=True;"/>

Parse Orchestrator Export

      • Trigger Policies that do not have all Custom Start properties for the target policy defined


A commandline tool for initiating Runbooks through the webservice. Depends on OrchestratorInterop.dll. This tool was designed for starting runbooks through scheduling tools and SCCM imaging.

scorchLauncher.exe -RunbookPath <String> -WebServerURL <String> [-Username<String> -Domain <String> -Password <String>] [-InputParameters String>|<String>~<String>|<String>] [-WaitForExit (True|False)]
  • RunbookPath <String> : Path to runbook in the form of "\RootFolder\ContainingFolder\Runbook Name"
  • WebServerURL <String> : Path to the webserver in the form of http://webservername:81/Orchestrator2012/Orchestrator.svc
  • InputParameters <String>|<String>~<String>|<String> : a list of input parameter key|value pairs seperated by ~. Can escape restricted characters with \
  • WaitForExit (True|False) : tells the program to wait for the completion of the Runbook or not. Must be set to True for accessing output parameters
  • UserName : The user name to connect to the web service with
  • Domain : Domain of the user to connect to the web service with
  • Password : Password of the user to connect to the web service with
  • Help : Prints this Help Page

ScorchLauncher.exe -WebServerURL http://WEBSERVER:81/Orchestrator2012/Orchestrator.svc -RunbookPath "\Development\WIN 7 - Task Sequence Steps\Send Email\Send Imaging Email" -WaitForExit True -i "Recipients||normal~Message|started~Computer Name|cpuname~Manufacturer|Lenovo~Model Number|T410~Serial Number|123456789~Asset Tag|987654321a~Temp PC Name|temp-477703~End User ID|userid~Technician Name|techname~AdvertID|adv00000" -username "userToRunAs" -domain "domainOfUser" -password "passwordOfUser"
