Display toast notification with Header picture to user in System context with Intune or SCCM

In this post I will show you how to display toast notification with header picture for user in SYSTEM.

We will see how to use it through both Intune and SCCM.

Display simple notification

See my previous post about how to display simple toast notification (without header) for user in SYSTEM.


You want to install an application on a devices

You want to display a toast notification on device after install

You want that this notification is displayed on the user session

You want to add a picture as header in your notification

The issue

There is two cases.

Case 1: System context

The script is executed in system context.

The application is installed but notification is not displayed for user.

This is because we are running in system context.

Indeed, if you run this kind of toast in system context or even in admin, you will get an Access Denied error.

Case 2: User context

The script is executed in user context.

The application will need admin rights to be installed.

The notification is displayed in for user.

This is because we are running in user  context.

The solution

In order to display a toast notification with header in system context but for user we will use an awesome PowerShell module.

This one is called RunAsUser and has been created by Kelvin Tegelaar.

You can find the GitHub repo here.

The idea is really simple.

I run the main script in SYSTEM context.

This one will run the script containing the notification as a scriptblock using the cmdlet Invoke-AsCurrentUser

For now the solution is not really nice, but I will write a Function soon.

The notification

The toast notification I will display looks like as below:

I will write another post about how to use this kind of toast notification.

You can find another one nice post wrote by Ben Whitmore, here
