Appreciate if anyone can provide any lead.

    Hello @Bhaskar Padmanabhan ,

    Welcome to Q&A Forum!

    Based on my research and testing, we cannot get the Content Editor webpart contents(data) using PNP powershell in sharepoint 2013.

    You can use the below PowerShell command to find CEWP’s with script in your SharePoint sites.

    [CmdletBinding()]  
    param([Parameter(Position=0,Mandatory=$true,ValueFromPipeline=$false,HelpMessage="Specifies the URL of the Web Application.")]   
          [string]$WebApplication)  
       
    function Get-CEWP([string]$url)  
    {  
       $manager = $web.GetLimitedWebPartManager($url, [System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.PersonalizationScope]::Shared)  
       $webParts = $manager.WebParts  
       if ($webParts.Count -ne 0)  
       {  
          foreach ($webPart in $webParts)  
          {  
             if ($webPart.GetType() -eq [Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.ContentEditorWebPart])  
             {  
                if ($webPart.ContentLink.Length -gt 0)  
                {  
                   # Check file in ContentLink for script tags  
                   $file = $web.GetFile($webPart.ContentLink)  
                   $data = $file.OpenBinary()  
                   $encode = New-Object System.Text.ASCIIEncoding  
                   $contents = $encode.GetString($data)  
                   if ($contents.ToLower().Contains("<script>"))  
                   {  
                       Write-Output "$($web.Url)/$url (CONTENTLINK)"  
                   }  
                   break  
                }  
       
                if ($webPart.Content.InnerText.Contains("<script>"))  
                {  
                   Write-Output "$($web.Url)/$url (HTML)"  
                }  
             }  
          }  
       }  
    }  
       
    # Load the SharePoint PowerShell snapin if needed  
    if ((Get-PSSnapin -Name Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) -eq $null)  
    {
