Is it possible to run PowerShell scripts in SharePoint 2013 from the Web GUI or from a Client PC?
Example: I'd like to copy custom views from a document library in one site to another one in the same site collection. This does not seem possible directly in the web GUI, so I found a PowerShell script which could do that: http://rogierdijkman.wordpress.com/2013/12/16/copy-views-to-other-libraries-with-powershell/
I wonder how I can launch this script. I tried to execute it on my own computer (only a client to sharepoint) in Windows 7 with Windows 7 PowerShell ISE and it fails stating that the Windows PowerShell-Snap-Ins were not found. I tried to find out how to install the SnapIns, but did not find a way.
So I wonder:
- do I have to have access to the Windows GUI of the servers to execute such a script?
- or can I also execute it from a client PC?
- which permissions do I need to execute such scripts from a client?
- Is there a way to directly launch PowerShell scripts from the SharePoint Central Administration web GUI?
