We were trying to do the same thing - would you be willing to share your script? Thanks in advance.

I'm working on a script to perform the same action. I'd love to coordinate with you and compare how you are performing the task. Mine has run into a few snags. We also have other scripts that use APIs to manage other items in the console if you'd like to discuss. FYI, John M. and I are colleagues.

Why in private and not just here?
I've also started to write powershellscripts which uses API-Calls and still are interested in it 🙂

Hello WSOne mates!

Few days ago I was asking the same question to WSOne support but I didn't receive too much help.

However I have some links you may like: https://code.vmware.com/samples?categories=Sample&tags=Product%20Provisioning

And the most wanted for me is this, where I finally find an explanation about how WSOne understand the powershell scripts depending if they were launched as Admin, System or User.

https://techzone.vmware.com/using-product-provisioning-deliver-files-windows-10-vmware-workspace-one...

I will appreciate any other samples you can share.

From my experience, the scripts can be ran from whatever account, assuming the account the scripts run under has the correct rights to perform the tasks required by the scripts, which could range from accessing a network share, or sending email notifications out as a specific account. 
The script itself needs to input the correct Auth code and tenant code to access the WS1 APIs, which can be accomplished by having specified accounts that have been created in the WS1 console with API rights.
We also use Postman to test the APIs and ensure they will give us the correct data (GET) we are looking for, or will perform the proper action we are looking to perform (PUT, POST, DELETE).
