I have a WebProvisioned event receiver and i do some work in this event receiver. When i create new webs from powershell, it seems the event receiver does not fire? Is this an expected situation? How can i make event receiver work, when i am creating items from powershell?


I have done it in the past so it should be working fine.

  1. Are you running cmd-let with full (administrator) permissions?
  2. Also make sure, account creating the webs have enough privileges to execute (i.e. full control of web application)?
  3. Would you mind posting your webtemp xml, because there could be a problem with provisioning providers in webtemp xml, I have seen it so many times in the past.
  • thank you, the problem was my powershell window was open for a long time. so it does not take the updated version of the event receiver. – ozdogan Nov 23 '12 at 9:57
