Powershell script for updating Teamviewer device name with username

Author: Anonymous b9kbhl

Expire: Never

This script checks if TeamViewer is installed and if the device is managed by a specific company.

It then fetches the computer name, gets user logon events, and filters out system and admin accounts.

The script finally updates the TeamViewer device name with the computer name and the last logged-in user.

Checks if the device is managed by the expected company.

$registryPath = "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\TeamViewer" ## Assuming 32-bit TeamViewer, change if you are using 64-bit one $registryKey = "OwningManagerCompanyName" $expectedCompanyName = "Put in the name of your company here" # Replace with the actual company name

Checks if TeamViewer exists in the registry. If it doesn't, the script quits with exit code 10.

if (Test-Path $registryPath) { Write-Host "TeamViewer registry key found." } else { Write-Host "TeamViewer registry key not found. Exiting with code 10." exit 10 }

try { $value = Get-ItemPropertyValue $registryPath $registryKey if ($value -eq $expectedCompanyName) { Write-Output "$registryKey found and has value $expectedCompanyName" } elseif ($value -ne $null) { Write-Output "$registryKey found but it has different value $value , exiting with code 11" exit 11 } else { Write-Output "$registryKey not found in given reg directory, exiting with code 12" exit 12 } } catch { Write-Output "Key not found. Exiting." exit 13 }

$clientID = Get-ItemProperty $registryPath if($clientID.ClientID -eq $null){ Write-Host "no Client ID to base the device identity on, exiting with code 14." exit 14 } $remoteID = "r"+$clientID.ClientID $localMachine = $env:COMPUTERNAME if($localMachine -eq $null){ Write-Host "Something wrong with computername, exiting with code 15." exit 15 }

Fetches the computer name.

$machineName = hostname

Defines the origin date/time as per the UNIX Timestamp standard, i.e., January 1st, 1970 at midnight.

$unixEpoch = New-Object -TypeName DateTime -ArgumentList 1970, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0

Gets user logon events and sorts them based on login time.

$logonEvents = Get-CimInstance CCM_UserLogonEvents -Namespace 'Root\ccm' | Sort-Object LogonTime -Descending | Select-Object -ExcludeProperty PSComputerName, RunspaceId

Initializes an array to hold the formatted results.

$formattedLogons = @()

Temporarily sets the error preference to silently continue.

$oldErrorPreference = $ErrorActionPreference $ErrorActionPreference = 'SilentlyContinue'

Formats the results and adds them to the formattedLogons array.

$logonEvents | ForEach-Object { $logonTime = ([System.DateTime]$unixEpoch.AddSeconds($_.LogonTime).ToLocalTime()) $logonDate = $logonTime

$customObject =  New-Object Psobject
$customObject | Add-Member -type NoteProperty -name "LogonDate" -value $logonDate
$customObject | Add-Member -type NoteProperty -name "UserName" -value ((New-Object System.Security.Principal.SecurityIdentifier($_.UserSID)).Translate([System.Security.Principal.NTAccount]))
$customObject | Add-Member -type NoteProperty -name "SID" -value $_.UserSID
$formattedLogons += $customObject


Filters the formattedLogons to remove admin/system/empty accounts.

$filteredLogons = $formattedLogons | Where {$.UserName -notlike "SYSTEM" -and $.UserName -notlike "admin*" -and $.UserName -ne "Administrator" -and $.UserName -ne $null} # You will probably want to add more exceptions here $firstLogon = $filteredLogons | Select-Object -First 1 $lastLoggedInUser = $firstLogon.UserName.Value $userDisplayName = $lastLoggedInUser -split "\" | Select-Object -Last 1

Exits if userDisplayName is null.

if($userDisplayName -eq $null){ exit 16 }

Updates the TeamViewer device name with the computer name and the last logged-in user.

if ($userDisplayName -is [string] -and $userDisplayName.Length -gt 3 -and $userDisplayName.Length -lt 40) { $userDisplayName = "- " + $userDisplayName } else { $userDisplayName = "- not known" }

$deviceOwner = $userDisplayName

$authHeader = New-Object "System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary[[String],[String]]" $apiToken = 'put-your-teamviewer-token-here' $authHeader.Add("authorization", "Bearer $apiToken")

$deviceList = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri "https://webapi.teamviewer.com/api/v1/devices" -Method Get -Headers $authHeader ForEach($device in $deviceList.devices){ If($device.remotecontrol_id -eq $remoteID) { $deviceID = $device.device_id } } if($deviceID -eq $null){ Write-Host "this client it is not part of the right pool. Exiting with code 17." exit 17 } $updateBody = (@{Alias = "$localMachine $deviceOwner"}) | ConvertTo-Json Invoke-RestMethod -Uri "https://webapi.teamviewer.com/api/v1/devices/$deviceID" -Method PUT -Headers $authHeader -ContentType application/json -Body $updateBody

Write-Host "Sent request to TeamViewer API to update the name of the device to $localMachine $deviceOwner"

#Set Error action preference back to original value $ErrorActionPreference = $oldErrorPreference

exit 20
