I am trying to remove a value of a user profile date field. We have a date field, SPS-HireDate, that I would like to clear in certain circumstances.

I am using PowerShell, specifically Set-PnPUserProfileProperty.

The Set-PnPUserProfileProperty is really just calling PeopleManager.SetSingleValueProfileProperty(AccountName, PropertyName, Value); behind the scenes.

Set-PnPUserProfileProperty -Account $UserUPN -Property 'SPS-HireDate' -Value $EmptyDate

I have tried

$EmptyDate = ""
$EmptyDate = $null
$EmptyDate = [DateTime]::MinValue
[Nullable[DateTime]]$EmptyDate = $null

How can I remove the value from a User Profile Property Date field using C# or PowerShell CSOM?


Using the following PowerShell:

Add-Type -Path "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\16\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll"
Add-Type -Path "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\16\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime.dll"
Add-Type -Path "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\16\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.UserProfiles.dll"

$Password = "xxx"
$SecurePassword = $Password | ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force
$Creds = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials($UserName,$SecurePassword)

#Bind to Site Collection
$ctx = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($SiteURL)
$ctx.Credentials = $Creds

$PeopleManager = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.UserProfiles.PeopleManager($ctx)
$PeopleManager.SetSingleValueProfileProperty("i:0#.f|membership|"+$AccountName,"SPS-HireDate", "")

  • Interesting. I'll try SetSingleValueProfileProperty by itself and see if it works. I won't be able to get to it until tomorrow though. – James Grizzle Oct 18 '17 at 13:35
