Connect to Office 365 SharePoint Online using PowerShell

Here is how to connect to your SharePoint Online environment using PowerShell and the Connect-SPOService cmdlet:

  1. Download the SharePoint Online Management Shell
  2. Run the SharePoint Online Management Shell (there will be an icon in the Start Menu)
  3. Connect using the following command and authenticate as normal when prompted:
    Connect-SPOService -Url https://<yourtenant>

Note: a lot of familiar cmdlets from an on-premise farm will not be available so review the Index of Windows PowerShell for SharePoint Online cmdlets page on TechNet.
