Update 10/25/2017: This article originally appeared on ITUnity.com but as that site has been decommissioned I’ve republished it here. In the article, Introduction to the SharePoint Online Management Shell, you learned about the SharePoint Online Management Shell and you saw how to use it to connect to your SharePoint Online tenant. This article will continue that discussion by further detailing what cmdlets are available along with a few key points about some of the less […]

Introduction to the SharePoint Online Management Shell

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Article, ITUnity, PowerShell Scripting, SharePoint Online

Update 10/25/2017: This article originally appeared on ITUnity.com but as that site has been decommissioned I’ve republished it here. With Office 365 now on SharePoint 2013, we finally have the long-awaited, and long-overdue support for using Windows PowerShell to manage SharePoint Online environments. Though support is still shockingly limited, it is a step in the right direction. For those of us managing large SharePoint Online environments, or about to do so, PowerShell scripting definitely beats […]

Invoke-SPORestMethod: Using the SharePoint Online REST API with PowerShell

Posted on 5 CommentsPosted in PowerShell Scripting, SharePoint Online

Earlier this summer I mentioned that I’d start blogging about some of my scripts that I have in my toolbox and I guess I’m a little behind in that but I guess better late than never.

Well, as it turns out, over Christmas break I managed to find some free time so I went ahead and got started […]

SharePoint 2013 Version 16.0.0.1810???

Posted on 8 CommentsPosted in SharePoint 2013

So today I was doing some SharePoint 2013 app development against my Office 365 SharePoint 2013 tenant and I needed to view the HTTP traffic from the site in order to troubleshoot some issues I was having and I stumbled across something I found very interesting when I looked at the header details in Fiddler: Yup, that’s right – my tenant is on SharePoint 16 – not 15 which is the current public release of […]

Using PowerShell to Manage SharePoint 2013 Online

Posted on 30 CommentsPosted in SharePoint Online

When SharePoint 2010 was released we had hundreds of cmdlets available for our on-premises deployments but when it came to Office365 we only had cmdlets available for manipulating our subscription details, users in AD, and Exchange Online (http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-us/office365-enterprises/hh125002.aspx). With the release of SharePoint 2013 as part of the Office365 offering we now have the ability to use PowerShell to manipulate our SharePoint Site Collections in the cloud. The capabilities are somewhat limited in that our […]
