Short description
Converts an object to a JSON-formatted string

ConvertTo-Json [-InputObject] <Object> [-Compress] [-Depth <Int32>] [<CommonParameters>]

The ConvertTo-Json cmdlet converts any object to a string in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format. The properties a
re converted to field names, the field values are converted to property values, and the methods are removed.

You can then use the ConvertFrom-Json cmdlet to convert a JSON-formatted string to a JSON object, which is easily manag
ed in Windows PowerShell.

Many web sites use JSON instead of XML to serialize data for communication between servers and web-based apps.

This cmdlet is introduced in Windows PowerShell 3.0.
