How can I set the "Allow members to share the site and individual files and folders" setting using the Office Dev PnP Provisioning Engine or PowerShell commands? I haven't found this specific setting in the commands.

 

I mean changing the following setting(s) by PowerShell / remote provisioning:

Access Requests Allow members to share.png

Hello Harold, 

 

Are you using SPO? This url might point you in the right direction regarding changing the setting programatically for SharePoint online: 

https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/chandru/2015/12/31/sharepoint-onlinecsom-change-access-requests-set... (there is a comment with a suggestion to how this can be removed with powershell)

 

I have just started looking into this, so haven't tested this myself yet. 


Let me know when you find a way to have this setting un-checked during site provisioning with PnP Provisioning Engine, as I am currently searching for that myself.

 

You can use this script. You need to install CSOM module Version 16.1.4727.1200 and above to use this. 

 

$SiteUrl = "https://<TenantName>.sharepoint.com/sites/<Sitename>"  
$UserName = "admin@<TenantName>..onmicrosoft.com"  
$Password ="password"
$loadInfo1 = [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint.Client") 
$loadInfo2 = [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime")
$loadInfo3 = [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.UserProfiles")
#$sstr = ConvertTo-SecureString -string $AdminPass -AsPlainText -Force
$Securepass = ConvertTo-SecureString $Password -AsPlainText -Force
$context = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($SiteUrl)
$context.Credentials = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials($UserName,$Securepass)
$Web = $context.Web
$AllProperties=$Web.AllProperties
$context.Load($Web)
$context.Load($AllProperties)
$context.ExecuteQuery()
$Web.MembersCanShare=$false
$web.Update();
$web.Context.ExecuteQuery()
$AssociatedMember=$web.AssociatedMemberGroup
$context.Load($AssociatedMember)
$context.ExecuteQuery()
$web.AssociatedMemberGroup.AllowMembersEditMembership = $false
$web.AssociatedMemberGroup.Update();
$web.Context.ExecuteQuery()

I created a extention for that:

  try
                {
                    Web rootweb = ctx.Site.RootWeb;
                    ctx.Load(rootweb, w => w.MembersCanShare);
                    ctx.ExecuteQueryRetry();
                    SharingConfiguration sharingSettings = configurationData.ToConfigObject<SharingConfiguration>();
                    // Set MembersCanShare, default to false

                    rootweb.MembersCanShare = sharingSettings.Sharing.MembersCanShare ? sharingSettings.Sharing.MembersCanShare : false;
                    rootweb.Update();
                    ctx.Load(rootweb, w => w.AssociatedMemberGroup.AllowMembersEditMembership);
                    ctx.ExecuteQueryRetry();

                    // Set AllowMembersEditMembership, default to false
                    rootweb.AssociatedMemberGroup.AllowMembersEditMembership = sharingSettings.Sharing.AllowMembersEditMembership ? sharingSettings.Sharing.AllowMembersEditMembership : false;
                    rootweb.AssociatedMemberGroup.Update();
                    ctx.ExecuteQueryRetry();

                    ctx.Load(rootweb, w => w.RequestAccessEmail);
                    ctx.ExecuteQueryRetry();

                    rootweb.RequestAccessEmail = sharingSettings.Sharing.RequestAccessEmail;
                    rootweb.Update();
                    ctx.ExecuteQueryRetry();
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                    TraceHelper.WriteErrorToListener("LogFile", ex.Message);
                }

Great replies of you all. Thanks! I'm sure I'll be able to generate a solution using your input next week. I'll update when I got it working.

Is this for SharePoint On-Line or SharePoint On-Premises ? Or Both ?

Hi Nigel,

 

my example could be used for both..

 

Kr,

 

Paul

Hi,

So there is no support for this in PNP-Powershell or the provisioning engine right now?

Russell

Heres the equivalent powershell. This works in O365

function DisableMemberSharing($siteUrl ) {

Connect -Url $siteUrl

$web = Get-PnPWeb -Includes MembersCanShare, AssociatedMemberGroup.AllowMembersEditMembership

$web.MembersCanShare=$false

$web.AssociatedMemberGroup.AllowMembersEditMembership=$false

$web.AssociatedMemberGroup.Update()

$web.Update()

$web.Context.ExecuteQuery()

 

}

 

 

Hi,

Is there also a command to enable/disable the "Allow access requests" via powsershell?

Cheers

For SharePoint online you can try this:

 

Connect-PnPOnline -url https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/test

Set-PnPRequestAccessEmails -Emails " "

@Mani Mehrabi Thanks! I have tried the suggested but it does not work. In the Access Request Settings it seems MS has also added a new radio button for choosing either email or the Site owners.

I ran into this same problem. Try this:

 

$web = Get-PnPWeb -Includes MembersCanShare, AssociatedMemberGroup.AllowMembersEditMembership

$web.MembersCanShare=$false

$web.AssociatedMemberGroup.AllowMembersEditMembership=$false

$web.AssociatedMemberGroup.Update()

$web.RequestAccessEmail = $null

$web.Update()

$web.Context.ExecuteQuery()
