  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. 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,…

  3. 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...

  4. 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.

    ■Description(内容):
    特定のアクティブなユーザーに付与されている Microsoft 365 に関連する権限のすべて確認したいが、SharePoint Online や Exchange Online など、権限を取得するコマンドレットが分かれており、一括ですべての権限を取得できるコマンドレットが存在しないので、すべての権限を一括で取得できる Windows PowerShell のコマンドレットを提供してほしい。

    We want to check all the Microsoft 365 permissions assigned to specific users, but the cmdlets used to get the permissions for SharePoint Online, Exchange Online etc. are all separate from each other, and there is no cmdlet to get all permissions at once, so please add a PowerShell cmdlet to get these.

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

    ■Title(件名):
    PowerShellでテナントの現在の使用量を確認する方法を希望します
    Way to check how much storage volume is currently in use for a tenant using PowerShell

    PowerShell にてテナント全体の上限値やサイトコレクション単位の上限値と現在の使用量を確認できるが、テナント全体の現在の使用量は確認できない。
    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.

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

    *English follows Japanese

    ■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.

  8. Better, faster recycle bin restore capability

    Users accidentally delete stuff...no getting around it. This morning I had someone accidentally delete 35,000 files from a OneDrive-synced SharePoint doc library, and now I'm in the process of restoring them. get-pnprecyclebinitem is painfully, unacceptably slow. This is literally going to take DAYS at this rate. Restoring via the GUI is no good because you can't easily select thousands of files at once. There has to be a better way to bulk-undo user errors like this.

  9. Admins running Connect-SPOService should be given broader options to connect

    Currently, you have to type the whole fqdn of the admin portal for SPO to connect-SPOService.

    However, the technology to do lookups is there; we should be able to do

    Connect-SPOService -domain fabrikam.com

    or

    Connect-SPOService -user admin.user.upn@fabrikam.com

    or

    Connect-SPOService -tenantprefix fabrikam

    In cases where domains are individually restricted for the organization, you need to apply detailed domain permission settings for every site collection separately using the GUI. This is inconvenient so please add a way to do this all at once using PowerShell.

  12. Enable Setting ConditionalAccessPolicy without Interactive PowerShell Session

    Currently, when running 'Set-SPOTenant -ConditionalAccessPolicy BlockAccess', the command prompts for user confirmation, which cannot be bypassed either using -Force or -Confirm:$false. This means that the command cannot be run non-interactively in a PowerShell script.

    Request that the cmdlet parameter be fixed so that it allows running in a non-interactive PowerShell session.

    Confirmed in the latest Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell module, version 16.0.20212.12000.

  13. Onedive Sync Auto-Connect

    If One-Drive has to be unlinked from a PC at any point for any reason, it loses its synced connections with document libraries in sharepoint. The curious thing about this is that Windows is smart enough to realize that those syncs have been previously made on the machine. If you re-sync one of the previously sycned libraries, the rest of them will show up but do not automatically begin to sync. A powershell to easily reconnect these previous connections would be extremely helpful when users are needing to connect upwards of 25 libraries.

  14. Use a PowerShell cmdlet to find the size of an object in a site collection

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    サイト コレクション内のオブジェクトの容量を確認する PowerShell コマンドレットの提供について
    Use a PowerShell cmdlet to find the size of an object in a site collection


    ■Description(内容):
    現在提供されている PowerShell コマンドレットでは、サイト コレクション全体の容量しか出力できず、各サブサイトやサイトコンテンツ、ファイル、ファイル バージョンの容量を確認することができない。
    管理者が容量を確認する際に、サイト ページへアクセスすることなくサイト コレクション内のオブジェクトをコマンドレットで確認できるよう、機能を提供してほしい。

    Currently existing PowerShell cmdlets can be used to output the total size of a site collection but cannot be used to find the sizes of individual subsites, contents, files or file versions.
    Please make it possible for administrators to find the sizes of objects in a site collection using a cmdlet instead of by having to access the site page.

  15. ForceOAuth option for Connect-SPOService

    Currently it is not possible to run an Azure Function that loads the SharePoint module and use a user account to connect using Connect-SPOService. This is because the ForceOAuth parameter must be set in registry, and the registry is read only in Azure Functions.

    There is no workaround other than patching the Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell.dll, changing an if in InstantiateSPOService.

    A very simple patch to Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell.dll, adding a new parameter to Connect-SPOService called "ForceOAuth", that adds the ForceOAuth parameter to InstantiateSPOService, would solve this issue.

    Also, even though functions are dotnetcore, the module runs just fine using Import-Module $moduleFile -DisableNameChecking -UseWindowsPowerShell

    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.

    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…
