SCOM 2022 How I can use in PowerShell "predefined run as account" in start-scomtask command

Hello folks,

I want to use the predefined Run As Account option in my SCOM tasks, but right now I feel like it's not possible from PowerShell.

There was a change in SCOM 2022 that right now -taskcredentials is required in the Start-SCOMTask command.
Settings > Miscellaneous > Tasks Execution, is enabled.
I think there is an option to achieve this by editing the task directly in the management package, but I would like to achieve this without interfering there.
Do you have any advice?

    Start-SCOMTask does not require the usage of PSCredential when started by non-admin users and when the option "Task Execution" is Disabled. In this case (when -TaskCrendetials). This would result in the task failing in case the non-admin user has not been delegated the permission on the task in question.

    In order to better understand your gooal I have to ask some additional questions:

    • If I get this right, you want to start a Task, using the option "Use predefined Run As Accont" over PowerShell (Start-SCOMTask), is that correct?
    • Do you want to do this with your admin account or in another user context?
    • Is the other user (if this iss in question) an admin or a scoped user?
    • What about this example (from the cmdlet reference for SCOM 2022):

    Get-SCOMTask -DisplayName "Get Monitor State" | Start-SCOMTask -Instance $Instances

    with the option "Task Execution" (Reference) being disabled?

    Can you please post those detials, I will do my best to help you.

    I suggest you try using the parameter "-TaskCredentials $null" to use the preconfigured RunAs account.


    Start-SCOMTask -Task $TaskObject -Instance $AgentObject -ErrorAction Continue -TaskCredentials $null

    I hope it helps.
