PSDiscord – PowerShell Module

This PowerShell module allows sending notifications to Discord. It's pretty easy to use, and kind of brother to PSTeams module using related cmdlets. It's cross-platform and works on Windows, Linux, and MacOS. While there is already excellent Discord module PSDsHook it used classes and was giving me some errors that I just had no way to fix. This Discord module is straightforward and is relatively easy to use.

How can I use it?

Following code can send a message to Discord. It changes Author of the message, adds an image as thumbnail and picture at the same time. It also turns the avatar name and logo.

$Uri = ''

$Author = New-DiscordAuthor -Name 'PSBlacklistChecker' -IconUrl ""
$Fact = New-DiscordFact -Name 'Blacklisted IP' -Value 'Found on blacklist' -Inline $false
$Thumbnail = New-DiscordThumbnail -Url ""
$Section = New-DiscordSection -Title 'Everybody panic!' -Description '' -Facts $Fact, $Fact, $Fact -Color BlueViolet -Author $Author -Thumbnail $Thumbnail -Image $Thumbnail
Send-DiscordMessage -WebHookUrl $Uri -Sections $Section -AvatarName 'PSBlackListChecker' -AvatarUrl ""

You can also use CreateConfig switch will save URI for later use so you can skip it in subsequent uses.

$Uri = '...'
Send-DiscordMessage -WebHookUrl $Uri -Text 'Test' -CreateConfig

Send-DiscordMessage -Text 'Test' -AvatarName 'My Test'

There's also switch TextToSpeach which basically tells discord to say to you the name of Avatar and the text included in Text field.

Send-DiscordMessage -Text 'Test' -AvatarName 'My Test' -TextToSpeech
