When I am executing the following command, the -As job is not working in Powershell Core 7.0

Similarly Get-Job | Receive-Job also does not respond.

Test-Connection google.com -count 10 -AsJob

Kindly advise

    The -AsJob parameter is not available for the Test-Connection cmdelt in PowerShell Core 7. You can create a background job using Start-Job.

    Start-Job -Name job1 -ScriptBlock {Test-Connection google.com -Count 10}
