    Check the above code and see how can I avoid this browser window and pass the credentials using command line

      Prompt the user for credentials and then retrieve the AccessToken obje +ct.

      Do you understand Powershell? Did you read what this code is doing? If you want to avoid this in powershell either ask elsewhere (i.e. not a perl forum), or alter the code provided to use an alternate method (if possible). Perl based methods have been suggested earlier, did you try them?

        Hi Marto, Some of the monks in this thread asked me to show the powershell code. I know it's not the powershell forum and I don't understand powershell as well.

        Let me try above modules suggested and then I'll get back with my observations.

      Disclaimer: The below is PS advice, NOT Perl advice. I'd strongly recommend going to a PS forum for such help...

      OK. Your Powershell code can likely handle the authentication.

      Link: PowerShell Documentation for System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser

      Look here in your PS code:

      $browser = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser
      While I am no PS guru, I AM an automation guru :) your script is creating a PS object based on the System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser Class. Start there, and find out how to interact with the login elements on the page. You should be able to enter text into any user/passwd fields, and click a submit button, using the mentioned class and its relatives. This should be trivial considering you have already created the object you will likely need.

      That should eliminate the need to manually pause and type in credentials.

      Cheers.
