Office 365 – PowerShell script to create Hub site

Hi All,

Today, I got an opportunity to write PowerShell script to create hub site. So thought to be share with all of us.

I Put detailed comments, tried to be self explanatory.

 Creates new Hub site

.PARAMETER CredentialFilePath
  Office 365 system account credential file path having two lines in following format

  Office 365 tenant admin site URL

  TeamSite OR CommunicationSite

 .PARAMETER HubSiteTitle
  Title of Hub Site

 .PARAMETER HubSiteAlias
  Alias of Hub Site

 .PARAMETER HubSiteDescription
  Description of Hub Site

    [parameter(Mandatory=$true)][ValidateSet("TeamSite", "CommunicationSite")][string]$HubSiteType="TeamSite",


if(-not(Get-PSSnapin | Where { $_.Name -eq "Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell"}))
	Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell;

#Get the user credential file path and getting user from it
$user = Get-Content $CredentialFilePath | Select-Object -First 1
#Getting password
$password = Get-Content $CredentialFilePath | Select-Object -First 1 -Skip 1
$securePassword = ConvertTo-SecureString $Password -AsPlainText -Force 

#Connect to Office 365
$spoManagementCred = New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -argumentlist $user, $securePassword
Connect-SPOService -Url $TenantAdminURL -Credential $spoManagementCred

Connect-PnPOnline -Credentials $spoManagementCred -Url $TenantAdminURL

#Creating site
$URL = New-PnPSite -Type $HubSiteType -title $HubSiteTitle -alias $HubSiteAlias -Description $HubSiteDescription

#register site as hub site
