SharePoint 2013 : PowerShell for SharePoint Command Builder

English There are more than 300 SharePoint PowerShell cmdlets and its growing and changing from time-to-time.  How administrator or developer will be able to remember all of those cmdlets? The answer :

  1. Using HELP (get-help) if you have access to PowerShell console and Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell snap-in ;
  2. PowerShell for SharePoint Command Builder (

The PowerShell for SharePoint Command Builder is a powerfull dictionary tools - build using Silverlight that lists all SharePoint's PowerShell cmdlets. It's been around before SharePoint 2013 becomes public - contains all SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 CMDLETS description. Eventually its not too user friendly - but all developer/IT Pro should easily understand what to do with the tools.  Basically there are 2 things that you need to know before you can build the command:

  1. , is the action you want to do. For example: ADD, GET, etc.
  2. , is the object you want to work with. For example SPSite, SPWeb

And finally, remember all SharePoint cmdlets nouns will start with SP , and all SharePoint online cmdlets will start with SPO. For example SPSite for SharePoint versus SPOSite for SharePoint online. Easy?
