The example in this topic show how to use PowerShell to Enable Content Approval in SharePoint

  • # Provide credentials over here
  • $creds = (New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential "<<UserName>>",(ConvertTo-SecureString "<<Password>>" -AsPlainText -Force))
  •  
  • # Provide URL of the Site over here
  • # If you do not wish to pass credentials hard coded then you can use: -Credentials (Get-Credential). This will prompt to enter credentials
  • Connect-PnPOnline -Url http://MyServer/sites/MySiteCollection -Credentials $creds
  •  
  • # Specify whether new items or changes to existing items should remain in a draft state until they have been approved
  • # NOTE: If you require content approval for a list or library that already contains items, all of the items in the library are marked Approved.
  • # After Enabling this, "Draft Item Security" option will also get enabled, later you can specify the option
