Powershell App Script Handling Error



Has anyone created a splunk app that has an input generated by a powershell script?

I have a script that runs that I am trying to improve the error handling.

My questions is how are you handling capturing errors, do you error to the splunkd.log or write out to a new log file in var/log/splunk?

I would appreciate any thoughts or examples of capturing errors and writing them out to splunk logs.

I typically write my own log and ingest it.

In python I log to splunkd.log and you may be able to do that with powershell, but I don't know how to.
