Using PowerShell to change page banner image


Hi Folks,

Currently have a automatic site creation tool up and running. I know using the PnP engine no content will be included in the template, but is there any way on the newly created site on the main home page (Modern Page) I can change the banner image using PowerShell to reference an image stored somewhere else?

I believe you are trying to change home page banner image programmatically. You can use PnP Powershell to do that. Follow below steps:


1. Connect your site using
     Connect-PnPOnline -Url $siteUrl -Credential $credential

2. Get Client Side Page
    $myHomePage = Get-PnPClientSidePage -Identity Home.aspx

3. Set custom page header:
   $myHomePage.SetCustomPageHeader('<Server relative Image URL>')

4. Save the page:

5. Publish:



Let me know if it helped.

Hi Rahul,


Thanks for the response.

Dropped the Publishing from the script and worked.



@Blair24 @Rahul Suryawanshi @Dean Gross Hi all,

setting the page banner image in this way is working, but if you do it on a news page and the news will be visible in the news web part, the picture is missing. Does anybody know how to fix this?

Thanks a lot in advance and kind regards, Sebastian
