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? Jun 25, 2019 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.

    You should provide content from the links in your answer. And the second link is not valid for SharePoint Online.

    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. Jan 8, 2016 at 21:11
