I´m trying to programmatically add default content to a document set via powershell in SharePoint Online. The thing is, that I only find examples where the files are given/uploaded, I would need a solution/example how to give the default content template via a URL.

Is that possible? (I guess so) Because you can also only upload templates to document libraries via GUI but programmatically you can set a URL for the template. If it`s not possible, does anyone know, where the uploaded templates for the document sets are saved?

Cheers and many thanks in advance!

Per my knowledge, the only way to change document set default contents is go to Site settings -> Site content types -> Document set -> Document Set settings.

Or you could refer this article to use PnP PowerShell to add default contents in the document set.
