Disconnected PowerShell Web Access Sessions

Today we finished up one of my advanced PowerShell classes.  What was unique about this one is that I ran the labs using Azure which gave the labs internet access.  Because of this, we were able to play around a little bit more and access our PSWA sites on our phones.  That was one cool thing, but the other thing that I never noticed is the ability to have a disconnected session.


Here is our current session:

Notice that I created a variable of $X = 5.  To disconnect, just simply click Save instead of Exit.

Open your web browser again and sign into PowerShell Web Access with the same credentials.  Here is what you get:
From here you can do the following:
  •         Check the current session and select Delete.  This will close the disconnected session.
  •         Click New Session to open a fresh session. 
  •         Click PSWA1.  This is your disconnected session. (You can have multiple disconnected sessions.)

Notice that when you run Get-Variable, your X variable is still present:


Also your history list is preserved.


It’s the little things that you notice from time to time that keeps things interesting.
