  1. Please provide Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Stream に対応する Windows PowerShell コマンドレットを提供してほしい。
    Please provide Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Stream に対応する Windows PowerShell コマンドレットが、現時点では提供されておらず、設定や情報を管理するのは、GUI からのみであるため、大変不便です。
    そのため、Microsoft Stream に対応する Windows PowerShell コマンドレットの提供を希望します。
    具体例として、Windows PowerShell コマンドレットを使用して、"タイトル"、"投稿者"、"投稿日"、"社内の全員にこの動画の閲覧を許可する" が設定されている動画情報や指定した日時に新規投稿された動画の一覧を抽出したり、"社内の全員にこの動画の閲覧を許可する" の設定を解除できるなどのコマンドレットを提供してほしい。
    Currently Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream are not provided, and GUI has to be used to manage settings and information, which is very inconvenient.
    Thus we hope Windows PowerShell commandlets will be provided to support Microsoft Stream.
    To give a more concrete example, we hope that commandlets will be provided to extract a list of new videos that have the…

  2. Expand SPO Powershell Capability

    Current PowerShell cmdlets available to administer SharePoint Online don't have enough functionality at or below the Site Collection level.

    I would like to see more of the on-prem cmdlet functionality migrated to SPO to be able to gather configuration data, site hierarchy, site / document library permissions, and other such information to quickly build documentation and reports.

    Having to learn and use CSOM seems like a step backwards.

  5. Set "show this view in folders of content type" with PowerShell | Modern experience

    Please add the ability to set "show this view in folders of content type" with PowerShell. This field is no editable right now.

    The missing possibility of editing leads to a lot of work in our IT department.

    Furthermore, please activate this view feature in the modern experience. This great feature deserves to be available in the modern experience...

    We have huge customization of mapped user data in User Properties in UPS and of course full sync with AD bidirectional. We will welcome some kind of dump of the settings with possibility of scripting (at least export / import settings to UPS)

  7. Fix differences in the display of Microsoft Search ProvisioningStatus in PowerShell between tenants and users

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    PowerShell で表示される Microsoft Search の ProvisioningStatus がテナントとユーザーで表示に差異がでる動作について改善を希望します
    Fix differences in the display of Microsoft Search ProvisioningStatus in PowerShell between tenants and users


    ■Description(内容):
    ライセンス、サービスの付与を PowerShell でアカウントごとに設定しているため、テナントの Microsoft Search のProvisioningStatus が Success で表示されているにも拘らず、ユーザーで ProvisioningStatus を確認すると PendingProvisioning で表示されているため、Office 365 管理センターで確認作業が必要になり手間がかかる。
    また、Office 365 管理センターの確認についてはアカウントに当該ライセンスを付与する必要がありさらに作業工程が増えてしまいます。
    "このアプリは組織レベルで割り当てられています。ユーザーごとに割り当てることはできません" に該当するサービスについてはテナントで確認する ProvisioningStatus をユーザーで表示されている PendingProvisioning に統一して表示することを希望します。

    We use PowerShell to check license and service assignments for each account, and regardless of whether the tenant’s Microsoft Search ProvisioningStatus is shown as “Success”, checking it from the user’s side shows it as PendingProvisioning, thus requiring extra work to check it via the Office 365 Admin Center.
    Also,…

  8. Improving the standard commandlet feature for SharePoint Online

    *English follows Japanese

    SharePoint Online の標準コマンドレッドの機能拡充について
    Improving the standard commandlet feature for SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の SharePoint Online の標準コマンドレッドでは細かい設定が行えず、PnP などのオープン ソースを利用しなければならない。オープン ソースは自身でモジュールの更新など行わなければならなかったり、コミュニティやフォーラム以外のサポートがないため、不便である。
    PowerShell を利用して業務の仕組みを組み込むことが多いが、標準コマンドででくることが少なく、オープンソースの利用だと Online の魅力がなくなってしまうため、Microsoft がサポートする標準コマンドレッドの機能拡充を要望します。
    Currently the standard commandlets for SharePoint Online cannot be used to make settings in detail, so open source like PnP had to be used instead. However for open source we have to update the modules ourselves and there is no support other than the community and forums, so it is inconvenient.
    PowerShell is used frequently to incorporate operation mechanisms, but not much can be done using the standard commands, if open source…

    How awesome would it be if we were allowed to export a SharePoint environment's configuration into a PowerShell script allowing you to easily rebuild your environment. Let's assume I spend 2 hours configuring my SharePoint farm using the GUI, it'd be awesome if I could somehow, within Central Administration, export my environment's configuration (Web Apps, Service Apps, services Enabled, etc). I know this is a long stretch and would probably very hard to accomplish, but it'd be awesome.

    Way to check how much storage volume is currently in use for a tenant using PowerShell

    テナント全体の現在の使用量をPowerShellのコマンドで確認できるように機能の追加を希望します

    While it is possible to use PowerShell to check the upper storage limit for the whole tenant, as well as the storage limit and currently used storage for individual site collections, it is currently not possible to check the currently used storage for the tenant as a whole.
    Please make it possible to check this using a PowerShell command.

  13. Provide more public information regarding the setting values that can be retrieved with Get-SPOSite

    Get-SPOSiteで取得できる設定値についての公開情報の拡充を希望します
    Provide more public information regarding the setting values that can be retrieved with Get-SPOSite


    ■Description(内容):
    2月頃から、Get-SPOSiteで取れる設定値が以下の10個増えているかと思います。

    RelatedGroupId
    GroupId
    ProtectionLevelName
    DefaultLinkToExistingAccess
    AnonymousLinkExpirationInDays
    OverrideTenantAnonymousLinkExpirationPolicy
    ExternalUserExpirationInDays
    OverrideTenantExternalUserExpirationPolicy
    InformationSegment
    BlockDownloadLinksFileType

    しかしながら、公開情報には使用方法などについての明確な情報ががありません。Get-SPOSite コマンドの公開情報に上記プロパティの詳細な情報を追加することを希望します。
    We thought that the setting values that can be retrieved with Get-SPOSite have increased by the following 10 items from around February.

    RelatedGroupId
    GroupId
    ProtectionLevelName
    DefaultLinkToExistingAccess
    AnonymousLinkExpirationInDays
    OverrideTenantAnonymousLinkExpirationPolicy
    ExternalUserExpirationInDays
    OverrideTenantExternalUserExpirationPolicy
    InformationSegment
    BlockDownloadLinksFileType

    However there is no confirmed information regarding the usage methods in public information. We hope that detailed information of the above properties will be added to public information for the Get-SPOSite command.

  14. Extract only the URL for a team using the team name in PowerShell

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams のチーム名から、PowerShell にて URL のみを取得したい
    Extract only the URL for a team using the team name in PowerShell


    ■Description(内容):
    "Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity "チーム名" | select SharePointSiteUrl" を実行すると、URL だけではなく、"SharePointSiteUrl" という項目も取得ができる。取得した値を変数に代入するため、"SharePointSiteUrl" という項目は取得せず、URL のみを取得できるようにしたい

    If you run "Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity "Team name" | select SharePointSiteUrl", not only is the URL extracted, but so is the “SharePointSiteUrl” item. We wish to assign the value we obtain from this command to a variable, and therefore would like to be able to pull only the URL, without also getting the “SharePointSiteUrl” item.

  18. PowerShell "Site owners and members, and people with Edit permissions can share files and folders, but only site owners can share the site"

    The ability to set the SharePoint Online site sharing permissions setting to "Site owners and members, and people with Edit permissions can share files and folders, but only site owners can share the site" using PowerShell, this way it can be set for a large number of sites via scripting. Currently Microsoft tells me this is not possible via PowerShell and can only be done manually per site.
