$sSiteUrl = ""    #Read-Host -Prompt "Enter Site Collection URL (eg: http://Server:port/Sites/Dev)" 

$scriptpath = $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Path
$dir = Split-Path $scriptpath

Get-ListInfo -sCSOMPath $dir -sSiteUrl $sSiteUrl -sUserName $sUserName -sPassword $sPassword -sWeburl $sWeburl -FileName $FileName -ImportFile $ImportFileName


  • Please update the  $sWeburl,$sUserName,$sPassword  and $sSiteUrl  variables with your SharePoint online  environment.
  • In ImportFileName= “Source_SiteCollection”,   Source_SiteCollection is the name of the  excel which contains the details of the  sub sites details that was generated in the first post .  If you want to give the your custom file  as an input to the above script please create the excel with the  name  Source_SiteCollection and the excel sheet name  Source_SiteCollection and  structure as belowexcelstructure.png
  • Or else you can use the first post to generate the excel.

2) Now Right click on the Get all List Info from all Sites.ps1  Power shell script file and select Run with PowerShell

3) ) After Successful execution of the scripts we will get the below message


4)Now go to the folder, we will find the excel file.


5) Open the excel, We will find all the details of the sub sites in the excel file as below


On Premises:

For On premises we need to slightly change  $spoCredentials  and $sUserName    variables in the above script.

$spoCredentials = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential($sUserName, $sPassword)

We need to give the user name along with domain name as below

$sUserName = "2013dev\spadmin"
