Welcome to the SharePointDsc Community!

Greetings & welcome to the SharePointDsc Community!


SharePointDsc (formerly known as xSharePoint) is the PowerShell Desired State Configuration module for SharePoint. It provides DSC resources that can be used to deploy and manage a SharePoint 2013 or 2016 farm and soon to support 2019. This module was first created by Brian Farnhill back in April 2015 and has been gaining traction ever since. Currently we are about to release v2.0 of the module, which contains a lot of improvements. More on that in a later post!


You can find the module on GitHub where you can download the most recent version, submit feedback and find module documentation. We encourage community member to contribute to the project by submitting Pull Requests that will be reviewed by the team.


On this blog we are planning to share information about the module, new releases, tips and tricks, etc. Also, we are very interested in your feedback! What do you think about the module, what can be improved, what needs to get added, etc. So let’s keep the feedback coming!
