Is it possible to do the below task using PnP powershell? What is the equivalent command?

Set-SPOSite -Identity $site -DefaultLinkToExistingAccess $true -DefaultLinkPermission "view"

To change the setting for the default link type, you can do it like this:

$site = Get-PnPTenantSite -Url "https://yourtenantname.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename"
$site.DefaultLinkToExistingAccess = $true

You can also use something as in the code below, to change other sharing settings for the site:

Set-PnPSite -Sharing ExistingExternalUserSharingOnly -DefaultLinkPermission View
  • I have already tried this but this is setting to "Existing Guests Only" option under "External Sharing" . I am looking for "People with Existing access" under "Default sharing Link Type"

  • This does not work ether. I am getting below message The property 'DefaultLinkToExistingAccess' cannot be found on this object. Verify that the property exists and can be set.
