In SPO we have a couple of sites that lack a default group for the “Allow members to share this site and individual files and folders”.
I’m trying to set a SharePoint security group named “OOTB Visitors” as the default group for this through PowerShell.
Through the GUI it’s easily done by going into the group choosing:
In PowerShell I found a method for the web named .CreateDefaultAssociatedGroups()
However, I can’t get it to work. I don’t get an error message but it also doesn’t change anything.
Any idea what I’m missing?
Here’s my code:
$ ctx = Get-PnPContext $ web.CreateDefaultAssociatedGroups('Owners', $ null, 'OOTB Visitors') $ web.Update() $ ctx.ExecuteQuery()
