I can't find a good official Microsoft reference anymore for using CSOM with PowerShell for SharePoint Online.

Working with PowerShell is slightly different then: JavaScript API reference for SharePoint REST API reference for SharePoint .NET server API reference for SharePoint .NET client API reference for SharePoint

Like here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj162979.aspx

And here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee537855(v=office.14).aspx

  • From an API perspective, when you use CSOM with PowerShell you're using the .NET libraries. I think what you're looking for is a PowerShell language reference. Sep 15, 2017 at 17:32
  • Thanx Derek, enough PowerShell info around, but all CSOM references I found have C# examples.
