Office 365 / SharePoint Online – Get-SPOSite : The site ‘SiteUrl’ is not properly formed.
Today new issue and solution 🙂
For my SharePoint online site, I need to set the one of the property through PowerShell. So I am trying to get the Site using Get-SPOSite as
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $site = Get-SPOSite "https://youcando.sharepoint.com/teams/youcandoteam/"
but I am getting following error as
Get-SPOSite : The site https://youcando.sharepoint.com/teams/youcandoteam/ is not properly formed.
At line:1 char:9
+ $site = Get-SPOSite “https://youcando.sharepoint.com/teams/youcandote …
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-SPOSite], ServerException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ServerException,Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell.GetSite
After googling, in one of the blog found that use “Identity” element before the URL, so we tried as
$site = Get-SPOSite -Identity "https://youcando.sharepoint.com/teams/youcandoteam/"
but no luck 🙁
same error as – Get-SPOSite : The site ” is not properly formed as.
After googling bit more in one of the blog found that , remove the trailing “/” from the URL and it worked like charm 🙂 as
This is easiest solution but thought to share since it took my around an hour to solve this.
