Execute PowerShell script and collect output

Iron Contributor

I am trying to execute a PowerShell script on all Intune managed machines and collect the output of the script afterwards.



Echo "Hello World from $env:computername"



I managed to upload and execute the PowerShell script using Devices > Policy > Scripts sections, but I cannot get the output of the script.


What is the right approach to collect such data? Where can I see the "Hello world from MY-DEVICE" printed, or what system should I use to retrieve the information?

Can you give us some more info what you are trying to accomplish? so we can help you

An example to write the output to a file

Write-Error -Message "Forced Fail" -Category OperationStopped
mkdir "c:\temp"
echo "Forced Fail" | out-file c:\temp\Fail.txt
Thank you!

There are around 50 intune managed machines in our org. I need to execcute the PowerShell script on all of those machines (this I can accomplich) and collect the output. Your example is perfect for showing how the write a file to C:\Temp, but how can I, as an intune admin collect the file from the 50 intune managed machines?

You could take a look on how I did the same with the laps solution or bitlocker.
A perfect method to get back some information and reports...

@Rudy_Ooms_MVP We have this script below 

$computer = $env:COMPUTERNAME
$namespace = "ROOT\CIMV2"
$classname = "Win32_InstalledWin32Program"

Write-Output "====================================="
Write-Output "COMPUTER : $computer "
Write-Output "CLASS : $classname "
Write-Output "====================================="

Get-WmiObject -Class $classname -ComputerName $computer -Namespace $namespace |
Select-Object Name,Vendor



Which is giving below mention output on local device

Now i want to send this script to other device and capture that with me using Intune , would you please suggest i can collect 



Hi... You could convert that script in a proactive remediation... buttttt maybe its worth looking at Intune Pivot that is going to be released in the feature (technical take off)

In which you can query this information realtime from the device.... with a kql query...
I am aware about that new feature but if i wanted to get this kind of information using proactive remediation then do i need to compress the data into any kind of format your little guidence will help me, I will adjust the script accordingly
