Multi-Database Query Store Data Retrieval

Tracy Boggiano wants to get Query Store data for a large number of databases on the same instance and has written a Powershell script to this effect:

In SQL Server 2016, Microsoft introduced to us the Query Store.  This has been proven to be a very beneficial feature especially at my job, saved the day on Christmas Eve. One of the limitations if see is when you have server with several databases on it trying to find the one that has the problem. So until Microsoft gives use a better tool or someone builds one I wrote a quick PowerShell function to query across all the databases and return data to a grid so you can sort and find that troublesome query.

To call it simply provide the server, which metric you want, the top number of queries to return, who many hours to look back, and the minimum execution count.

This is one of two issues I have with Query Store, the other being that its data gets saved to the primary filegroup without any recourse.  Click through for the script.
