How To Use the Aurora DNS Plugin

This plugin works against the PCExtreme provider, Aurora DNS. It is assumed that you already have an account and at least one Managed zone you will be working against.


If you haven't done it already, you need to generate API Credentials for your account from the DNS - Health Checks Users page. When you open the user details, you should be provided with an API URL, Key and Secret value. These are what we will use with the plugin.

Using the Plugin

The API Key and Secret are passed as the username and password in a PSCredential object to the AuroraCredential parameter.

There is also an optional AuroraApi parameter for the hostname provided in API URL which defaults to So if your API URL is the same, you can ignore that parameter.
