    PowerShell SharePoint List

    PowerShell SharePoint List refers to the management and automation of SharePoint Online lists using PowerShell, a scripting language. PowerShell enables users to automate tasks, and when applied to a SharePoint Online environment, it can access and manipulate SharePoint lists programmatically. This functionality is expanded with PnP PowerShell, which is a specialized set of commands designed specifically for managing SharePoint components.

    Within the PowerShell framework, cmdlets such as Get-PnPList and GetList with the -Identity parameter are used to retrieve SharePoint lists either by their titles or GUIDs, respectively. Furthermore, the CSOM method GetListByTitle is capable of obtaining lists from a variety of sources within SharePoint Online, showcasing the flexibility and power of using PowerShell with SharePoint.
