PowerShell Invoke-RestMethod / CloudFlare API v4 Code Sample

If you’re looking to create your own CloudFlare API v4-based PowerShell module, and would like some syntax examples, here’s a simplified breakdown of my CloudFlareDynDns module on github, which I discuss in “Use PowerShell and CloudFlare API v4 to Dynamically Update CloudFlare DNS to your External IP“.

    This is an awesome script thanks. what would the syntax be to update an @ or catch all record without a prefix like http://www.?

    I love your script and it woks well, but how would I use it to update “domain.com” instead of “home.domain.com”?

      I figured it out. If you add replace the “$recordurl = ” line with this code:

      if ($record) {
      $recordurl = “$baseurl/$zoneid/dns_records/?name=$record.$domain”
      } else {
      $recordurl = “$baseurl/$zoneid/dns_records/?name=$domain&type=A”

      When $record = “”, it works great.
