New status pop-ups from PSU

Product: PowerShell Universal
Version: 3.5.3

Hey PSU folks,

This morning I upgraded to version 3.5.3, to remediate the CVEs in today’s security bulletin. I also updated PoSh 7 to the latest 7.3.0 while I was at it.

I’m not sure if it’s the PSU version update (probably), something to do with the PoSh update, or a combination of both. I’ve started getting these status type pop-ups in the bottom left of the screen when we do things like import the AD module, create implicit remoting, etc. They pop up then go away so fast I could only get 1 screenshot.


Although I think they are kind of cool, not sure I want my users seeing these. They don’t need to know about the connections were making, modules we’re importing, etc.

Is this something new with PSU that I can disable for my PROD environment?


It’s coming from the Write-Progress integration.

Put this at the top of your dashboard to avoid this:

$ProgressPreference = 'SilentlyContinue' 

Also note that implicit Windows Compatibility remoting can cause performance issues in dashboards and APIs. It’s what is causing those to pop up.

$ProgressPreference = ‘SilentlyContinue’ did the trick :slight_smile:

I’ll be doing away with the implicit module importing soon. It’s the last thing still running with the AzureAD module, requiring the module to be loaded into Windows PowerShell. I’ll update it to use Graph SKD soon, instead of AzureAD module.

As usual, thanks for your insight!
