Using Sitecore 10.3

This is a local instance. I have opened the PowerShell console and it shows up like this.
The yellow notification bar doesn't go.
How do I get to the command prompt?

Clicking on Drop elevated session state does nothing.

  • Any errors in javascript console of the browser?

  • @sukesh Is the Drop elevated session state clickable? If yes what happens when you click? May 2 at 12:28
  • You need to add or enable the Identity Server configuration. May 2 at 14:14
  • @MichaelWest This is a fresh instance. Do I need to make changes here too. Will installing SPE not be enough?

SPE elevated rights means that SPE has put a named token in your session state that has an expiration time. We are not elevating anything related to any other aspect of your Sitecore environment – you’re SPE elevated which means we allow you to do execute Script and save it within your Sitecore environment.

If you want to hide yellow notification bar Powershell console and allow elevation of the user session. You can update the configuration via patch file for Console window only in Spe.config.

<token name="Console" expiration="00:05:00" elevationAction="Allow"/>

Once you allow the console window, the result will be.

The console app is a decent entry point when you need to quickly provide a one liner to test something or just change a field in a large number of items.
