HowTo: Determine if You are Still Logged In

I have run into some instances where my script will fail in the middle of processing due to my user account timing out. So, in this post I will show how to determine if you are still connected and how to resolve if you are not.

Within my scripts I started adding the following if statement to determine if I am still connected. If not, I log back in.

$DatasourceName = 'BMF-WS2016-PWDI:PW'
$UserName = 'pwadmin'
$PasswordFile = 'C:\temp\encrypted.txt'

    Write-Warning -Message "Need to log back into ProjectWise datasource '$DatasourceName'." 
    New-PWLogin -DatasourceName $DatasourceName -UserName $UserName -Password (Get-SecureStringFromEncryptedFile -FileName $PasswordFile) 
} else { 
    Write-Host "Still connected." -ForegroundColor Green 

Experiment with it and have fun.
