I have not been able to find much information regarding creating custom User Profile Properties via CSOM or SharePoint Online PowerShell. Is this possible, and if so, how do I go about doing it?

  • I have the similar requirement. Did you find any solution for this? – Krunal Patel Jun 25 '19 at 7:43

At the moment, only read/update operations can be performed to custom properties using CSOM/PowerShell. However, properties still need to be created manually using GUI in SharePoint-online.

Try with this

Connect to SP online


Add new property

    You should provide content from the links in your answer. And the second link is not valid for SharePoint Online. – wjervis Jan 8 '16 at 15:37

    Although the second link is fantastic for use in on premise environments, I need a CSOM only approach or one that uses SPO friendly PowerShell cmdlets. – James Grizzle Jan 8 '16 at 21:11
