How to view the current Powershell session security permissions

07 September,2021 by Tom Collins

Question: How to view the current Powershell session security permissions?   I'm trying to troubleshoot remote powershell commands and need to review the current powershell sessions standard persmissions.


Answer:  Use the Get-PSSessionConfiguration cmdlet. The definition from Microsoft docs : " The Get-PSSessionConfiguration cmdlet gets the session configurations that have been registered on the local computer"

As long as you have administration rights on the OS execute the following code on a Powershell command line

(Get-PSSessionConfiguration -Name Microsoft.PowerShell).Permission

--example output

NT AUTHORITY\INTERACTIVE AccessAllowed, BUILTIN\Administrators AccessAllowed, BUILTIN\Remote Management Users AccessAllowed
