List all available function in global profile

How do I list all functions loaded from our global powershell profile?

If I do this, I get all functions loaded, but I only want those that comes from the global profile:
Get-Command -type Function

Open in new window

Is it possible?

We have put a lot of functions into the Global Profile (C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Profile.ps1)

There are nothing else than our own (homemade) functions in this file, but there's a lot of them.

I've been trying with  Select-String, which turned out to be the right approach.

$lines = Select-String "C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\profile.ps1" -Pattern "Function" | Select line

foreach ($line in $lines) {

$funcName = $line.line -split "\("
Write-Host $funcName[0]

}

Open in new window

gives me this:
function str2email
function Get-admin
function Get-MasterSID
Function Phone-Number
function new-primary-mailaddress
function get-struct
function update-struct
function Get-Styr-ADUser
function Get-Styr-Users
Function Update-Users
function Get-CASActiveUsers
Function Get-Cau
function update-DistributionGroup-members
function update-Organisation
function update-Fordelingspostkasser
function List-DistributionGroup-members
function List-Organisation
function List-Fordelingspostkasser
function make-id
function New-DistributionGroup-from-group
function opret-Fordelingspostkasser
function get-group-from-customattribute
function get-linked-user-list
function update-SharedMailbox-members
function update-SharedMailboxes... (and so on)

Open in new window

So at last I cracked the code.

I really appreciate your effort, Thanks!

Hi

You will need to identify something unique about the functions loaded in the global profile
 
select  a function and look at all its properties to identify this you could use a command like the following.

(get-command -type function)[2] | select -Property *

Open in new window


this returns
HelpUri             :
ScriptBlock         :
CmdletBinding       : False
DefaultParameterSet :
Definition          :
Options             : None
Description         : MyCompany
Verb                : Add
Noun                : BitLockerKeyProtector
HelpFile            :
OutputType          : {}
Name                : Add-BitLockerKeyProtector
CommandType         : Function
Visibility          : Public
ModuleName          : BitLocker
Module              : BitLocker
RemotingCapability  : PowerShell
Parameters          : {}
ParameterSets       : {}

Open in new window


If will then be a simple matter of filtering the results

Get-Command -type Function | ? {$_.Description  -eq "MyCompany" }

Open in new window


let me know if this helps , or if you can provide more detail i will be able to help you more fully.

Thanks for answering.

There isn't any unique things about them, that they have in common. Could I add something unique to each function in the global profile?

Hi

you could set the read only option on all your functions when you set them

Function test1 { write-host "hello" }
Set-Item –Path Function:test1 –Options ReadOnly
get-item function:*  | ? {$_.options -eq "Readonly"}

CommandType     Name                                               ModuleName
-----------     ----                                               ----------
Function        Joe
Function        test1

Hmmm, I'm not sure if I understand this one.
Doesn't this require, that I know the name of all the functions in the global profile?

Kasper KatzmannSeniorkonsulentAuthor Commented:
I was thinking... is it possible to extract all the words "Function" and the word comming right after?

Hi

I am still not quite clear on exactly what is required here ,  

please run the following command and highlight the items you only want to be displayed

if you are trying to identify you own functions , when they are created you could create them read only , which will allow you to Identify them.

Regards

Joe
