    Yes, it won't show up through Update-Help until we get https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell-Docs/issues/1073 addressed. We are working through issues in PowerShell 6 right now before we flip the switch for downlevel versions.

    Yes, the wildcard issue is pretty widespread. We have a tracking issue here: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell-Docs/issues/1672

    Hey Anon, if you found it on github that's probably the best place to raise support questions. I'm not familiar with the tool and the owner of it probably isn't looking here, sorry.

    Moving to the Certificate section of this UserVoice - while PowerShell team does own the xCertificate module, this comment: https://github.com/PowerShell/xCertificate/issues/32 gives some additional context. The ask is more around exposing the Right Set of PKI cmdlets that can then be manipulated by a DSC resource to do the right thing.

    survey  ·  Zachary Alexander responded

    We don’t own the creation of modules for operating system features. I’ll mark this as Survey so we can provide this information to the WU team, but you might also want to consider filing this in the Windows 10 Feedback Hub. Also, see the community-created PSWindowsUpdate link below :)

    Hi Karl, the best place for WSUS feedback is really in the Feedback Hub.

    Nisse, PowerShell documentation is open source at https://github.com/powershell/powershell-docs . If there are things you want to see added to the existing PowerShell documentation, that would be a great place to raise issues.

    Moved to networking, as the PowerShell team does not own this cmdlet.

    It looks like you found the issue and have a fix. Right now the easiest+ quickest way to get this fixed would be to go through GitHub. Please update this issue if you do go down that path and I will mark this as external.

    Zachary Alexander commented  · 

    I also filed a bug to track this internally

    Moving to Active Directory, since this is an AD cmdlet and not a PowerShell-owned cmdlet.

    Moving to Management Tools -> Group Policy as this is a issue with GP cmdlets, not PowerShell specifically

    survey  ·  Zachary Alexander responded

    Can you take a look below and leave a comment to let me know if the workaround is sufficient for your purposes? If so, I will close this item. If not, I will keep it marked as survey.

    Zachary Alexander commented  · 

    DSC compiler doesn’t support ciminstance object as property value, but as a workaround you still can have method to create website binding as in the following example provided by one of our devs, Amit:

    Configuration DscTest

    {

    Import-DscResource -ModuleName xWebAdministration;

    function Get-TestBindingInformation

    {

    param(

    [System.Collections.Hashtable] $node

    )

    return @(

    MSFT_xWebBindingInformation {

    Port = 80

    Protocol = "HTTP"

    HostName = "test1"

    }

    MSFT_xWebBindingInformation {

    Port = 80

    Protocol = "HTTP"

    HostName = "test2"

    }

    )

    }

    Node localhost

    {

    xWebsite TestWebSite

    {

    Ensure = "Present"

    Name = "TestWebSite"

    PhysicalPath = "C:\inetpub\test"

    BindingInfo = (Get-TestBindingInformation $Node)

    }

    }

    }

    DscTest

    Just pulling this in from the linked GitHub issue:
    "the MOF is clearly not generated correctly if the objects that are passed to an Embedded Instance is contained in a variable."
