PowerShell – Report – Get Cloud PC Windows 365 with low utilization

24 Nov

In my previous post, I had demonstrated the new reports (in-preview) Windows 365 Cloud PC – New Reports – Connection quality & Low Utilization. Today, I will showcase how to generate the report of “Cloud PCs with low utilization” using PowerShell and MS Graph API with beta modules on Windows 365 Cloud PC.

Connect to MS Graph API

Step 1 – Install the MS Graph Powershell Module

#Install Microsoft Graph Module
PS C:WINDOWSsystem32> Install-Module Microsoft.Graph

Step 2 – Connect to scopes and specify which API you want to authenticate. If you are only doing read-only operations, I suggest you connect to “CloudPC.Read.All” in our case, we are creating the policy, so we need to change the scope to “CloudPC.ReadWrite.All”

#Read-only
PS C:WINDOWSsystem32> Connect-MgGraph -Scopes "CloudPC.Read.All"
Welcome To Microsoft Graph!

OR

#Read-Write
PS C:WINDOWSsystem32> Connect-MgGraph -Scopes "CloudPC.ReadWrite.All"
Welcome To Microsoft Graph!

Step 3 – Choose between v1.0 (Generally Available) and Beta API versions. Note for Windows 365 Cloud PC, the API calls are BETA.

#Beta APIs
PS C:WINDOWSsystem32> Select-MgProfile -Name "beta"

OR

#Production APIs (Not Applicable)
PS C:WINDOWSsystem32> Select-MgProfile -Name "v1.0"

Generate the report – Low Utilization

We are generating a report that will showcase the low utilization of the Cloud PC within your environment. This can help you decide to decommission the Cloud PC or send a notification to the end-user etc. – https://github.com/askaresh/avdwin365mem/blob/main/report-lowutilz-cloudpc

  • Building the bodyparameters:
    • Top – How many records you want to return (In the current example its 25)
    • Skip – Number of records to skip ((In the current example its 0)
  • Filter
    • In my example, as its a demo tenant and to generate the report I am using the following – TotalUsageInHour le 40 (Usage less than 40 hours)
  • It will provide the details of the Cloud PC Name, UPN, Total time connected and Days since last sign-in.
$params = @{
	Top = 25
	Skip = 0
	Filter = "(TotalUsageInHour le 40)"
	Select = @(
		"CloudPcId"
		"ManagedDeviceName"
		"UserPrincipalName"
		"TotalUsageInHour"
		"DaysSinceLastSignIn"
	)
}

Get-MgDeviceManagementVirtualEndpointReportTotalAggregatedRemoteConnectionReport -BodyParameter $params

Note – You will have to enter the OutFile path where you want to save the report in my example C:\Temp\abc.csv

The actual report in the Intune Portal looks like the following – The same result is now available within the Value section of the CSV (Note – The formatting of the output is terrible, some excel work will be required to format the data properly)

I hope you will find this helpful information for generating low utilization report for Cloud PC using PowerShell. Please let me know if I have missed any steps or details, and I will be happy to update the post.
