I have a list in SharePoint with 50 content types. My list has two columns that I want to add to each content type in my list using PNP library. Until now I have something like this:

Add-PnPField -List $listTitle -Field $_.Name 

But I could't find a way to check that "Add to all content types" checkbox from PNP. I've tried


but i've got this error: Add-PnPField : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument 'AddFieldOptions.AddToNoContentType'.

Any way to do that ?

Try adding -FieldOptions AddToAllContentTypes parameter to your Add-PnPField command.

For Example:

Add-PnPField -List "New list" -DisplayName "New List Column" -InternalName "NewListColumn" -Type Text -Required -AddToDefaultView -FieldOptions AddToAllContentTypes

  1. As per the March 2020 Release, They have removed FieldOptions argument from Add-PnPField.

  2. So, you might try using above command by installing January 2020 Release (v3.17.2001.0) or February 2020 Release(v3.18.2002.0).

    Hello, indeed this can be a solution but since the project is for a client, i cannot change the version of pnp to an older one. I have tried your solution to the latest pnp version and it's not accepted : WARNING: Parameter 'FieldOptions' is obsolete. Not in use

  • Yes, because they have removed FieldOptions parameter from all releases after February 2020 Release. Commented May 29, 2020 at 10:22
