Yes, you can get the list of external users using SharePoint online PowerShell or PnP PowerShell.

Sample script 1:

Connect-SPOService -Url https://office365admin123-admin.sharepoint.com-credential $credentials
$i = 0  
ForEach($site in Get - SPOSite)  
    Write - Host "*********"  
    Write - Host "Site number: "  
    Get - SPOExternalUser - SiteUrl $site.Url  


enter image description here

Sample script 2:

#Import SharePoint Online Management Shell
Import-Module Microsoft.Online.Sharepoint.PowerShell -DisableNameChecking
#Config Parameters
$ReportOutput ="C:\Temp\ExternalUsersRpt.csv"
#Get Credentials to connect
$Cred = Get-Credential
#Connect to SharePoint Online Tenant Admin
Connect-SPOService -URL $AdminSiteURL -Credential $Cred
#Get All Site Collections
$SiteCollections  = Get-SPOSite -Limit All
#Iterate through each site collection and get external users
Foreach ($Site in $SiteCollections)
    Write-host -f Yellow "Checking Site Collection:"$Site.URL
    Try {
        For ($x=0;;$x+=50) {
            $ExternalUsers += Get-SPOExternalUser -SiteUrl $Site.Url -Position $x -PageSize 50 -ErrorAction Stop | Select DisplayName,EMail,InvitedBy,AcceptedAs,WhenCreated,@{Name = "SiteUrl" ; Expression = {$Site.url}

  • I tried this one, but i see that it's generating data for only the Root sites, Anyway to get data of the sub-sites as well? Apr 26, 2021 at 7:51
  • Did you try 2nd script? You can also try the different ways (Site Collection Wise or using PnP PowerShell) given in 2nd link in my answer. Apr 26, 2021 at 8:03
  • Sample script 2: - I Tried this script Apr 26, 2021 at 8:06
  • So, is it not returning all external users as expected? Apr 26, 2021 at 8:14
  • It's returning the results, but only with the Root site, and not the sub sites! Apr 26, 2021 at 10:22

You can use scripts mentioned above or directly use the cmdlet

$Cred = Get-Credential
Connect-SPOService -URL $AdminSiteURL -Credential $Cred

It will directly list all the external users.


And you can directly goes to the Azure AD and filter users based on user type. All the guests will be displayed.
