I have requirement to get all the list of event receiver names(Not Default) in a share point 2013 site which are custom.

Kindly guide me on identifying the custom receivers only.

Thanks in advance! Kailash


Iterate the event receivers using Get-PnPEventReceiver and look at the ReceiverAssembly property. The ones that start with "Microsoft" are OOB. The ones that are blank, like in the below screen shot, are remote event receivers. Your custom server-side event receivers will have the name of the assembly they were created under.

Get-PnPEventReceiver -List $listName | ft ReceiverName,ReceiverAssembly


enter image description here

  • Thanks for the answer. I Have retrieved the details using power shell. But for some of the event receivers the assembly shows as 'Nintex.Workflow, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=913f6bae0ca5ae12'. So, can Nintex have event receiver in sharepoint? Jun 1 '20 at 12:46
  • Yep, that's a third party application, not OOB. Jun 1 '20 at 13:15
