Is there a PnP PowerShell equivalent of this CSOM command :-

$webapp=Get-SPWebApplication $WebApplicationUrl ?

Which gets the details of the Web Application at $WebApplicationUrl (On-Premises Only)

  • Perhaps if you could tell us why do you want that object or what would you like to do with it, maybe we can help you there.

  • I want be able to list the web application with the url $WebApplicationUrl so I can find all of the site collections within that web application and the owner of the web application. Once I have the site collections I can get the features, the workflows and the owners of each site collection. Mar 16, 2017 at 10:38

Does not look like there are specific Web Application cmdlets. At least nothing is shown on the PnP-PowerShell list of cmdlets.

  • I had a feeling somebody was going to say that. I could not find it either. Mar 13, 2017 at 17:04

The reason for that is that there is no equivalent to Get-SPWebApplication in CSOM itself because CSOM provides access upto site collection level only.

So, PnP being a wrapper around CSOM wont be able to access the web application object.

web application in CSOM

Get web application in CSOM
