Is there a way to invoke and execute a .ps1 file using REST/JSOM?

I am hoping to deploy a SharePoint Hosted App that runs a powershell script on the server.

  • dont think so, but you can call a custom service which will execute the csom code to deploy sharepoint hosted app Jul 4 '17 at 8:52
  • @GautamSheth the sp hosted app should have the provision to invoke and run powershell scripts. So, the options with me are Rest and JSOM. Can you please elaborate? Jul 4 '17 at 8:53
  • i dont think its possible to execute ps1 script from REST/JSOM. You can create a custom webservice(web api) on azure. This service will deploy the sp hosted app using CSOM code. Jul 4 '17 at 9:19
  • did the above mentioned solution work with SharePoint App?

Yes, You can call your executable powershell scripts *.ps1 using REST api as HTTP GET is supported by all programming language (javascript in your case).
