Release Notes

       ## [] 2020-11-09

       Added command completion for udsinfo and udstask commands

       ## [] 2020-10-18
       Handle role field in reportlist when it appears
       Installer was allowing install into PS3, but PSD1 file was then refusing to allow the module to start.   So instead do not allow the install.
       Get-Privileges output was blank, corrected this and heading typo

       ## [] 2020-09-30
       If a uds command offers an empty variable as an argument, ignore it, let appliance complain if command is not valid.  This prevents .psm1:1608 char:17 error

       ## [] 2020-09-20
       Improved module description for PowerShell Gallery users

       ## [] 2020-09-18

       ## [] 2020-09-13
       Updates to allow this version to run on PS5.  

       ## [] 2020-09-15
       Fix typo in SARG sort order logic that was making some searches find nothing

       ## [] 2020-09-02

       udstask testconnection commands were having .result stripped off.  This change also means udstask commands may return a status.

       Added sort order logic to bring order to the output
       Handle apps with space in their names

       ## [] 2020-07-16
       usvctask rmmdisk only worked if -force was the first parameter.   Added check for this, so both of these now work (previously only the upper one worked):
       usvctask rmmdisk -force -mdisk mdisk1 mdiskgrp1
       usvctask rmmdisk -mdisk mdisk1 -force mdiskgrp1
       ## [] 2020-06-24

       ## [] 2020-06-23

       ## [] 2020-06-20
       No functional changes.  This version is uploaded to PSGallery:
       ## [] 2020-06-19
       Because report commands do not load as functions until after Connect-Act, this causes confusion.   Added reportlist as a discreet function to give useful error message.
       ## [] 2020-06-18
       All error messages that are locally generated will use the same format as appliance generated, making the behavior more consistent and script able.
       ## [] 2020-06-16
       Added helpful exit message when Get-SARGReport is run without a sub-command, rather than no message
       When Get-SARGReport is run with -h will now show reportlist output rather than no message
