A short script to create a content type, and add it directly to all SharePoint Online lists within one site. The content type does not appear among site content types.

 

The script is fully described in an article here:

How to use?


1. Download and install SharePoint Online SDK.

2. Download the .ps1 file.

3. Open the file (you can do it also in NotePad)

4. Insert your data in these lines:

 

 

PowerShell
Edit|Remove
   # Paths to SDK. Please verify location on your computer. 
Add-Type -Path "c:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll"  
Add-Type -Path "c:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime.dll"  
 
# Insert the credentials and the name of the admin site 
$Username="admin@tenant.onmicrosoft.com" 
$AdminPassword=Read-Host -Prompt "Password" -AsSecureString 
$AdminUrl="https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/teamsitewithlibraries" 
$Description="desc" 
$Name="Name of the Content Type2" 
$ParentContentTypeID="0x01" 
$Group="List Content Types"
 
a) Find on your computer where SharePoint.Clitent.dll and SharePoint.Client.Runtime.dll libraries are located and insert the correct paths
b)  Instead of "admin@tenant.onmicrosoft.com" enter you username
c) Instead of "https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/teamsitewithlibraries" enter the name of the site collection where you want to find the content types
d) Fill in the properties of the content type.

 

 

5. Run the script in Powershell (any module). 

6. When the script has executed, Powershell will show a message Content Type  Name of the Content Type2  has been added to Title of the List.
