Get PSSessionConfiguration - PowerShell


The Get-PSSessionConfiguration command in PowerShell allows you to retrieve information about session configurations. These configurations specify the settings and parameters that apply to remote PowerShell sessions created using New-PSSession.

| Option | Description | Default |
| -Name | Name of the session configuration to retrieve. | * (all configurations) |
| -PSPath | Path to the session configuration file. | Default configuration store path |


Example 1: Get default session configuration

Get-PSSessionConfiguration -Name Microsoft.PowerShell

Example 2: Get session configuration via PSPath

Get-PSSessionConfiguration -PSPath "C:\MySessionConfig.ps1"

Common Issues

  • Configuration not found: Ensure the specified -Name or -PSPath is correct.

  • Set-PSSessionConfiguration: To modify session configuration settings.
  • New-PSSession: To create remote sessions based on a specific session configuration.
