SharePoint PnP Webcast – Upgrading your SharePoint Framework solution using Office 365 CLI

In this PnP Webcast, we concentrated on the Office 365 CLI and a new capability to help you to upgrade your SharePoint Framework solutions to the latest version. You can use the Office 365 CLI to give you a list of actions to be applied in your solution to ensure that it’s using the latest SharePoint Framework version.

Notice. Office 365 CLI does not actually perform the needed actions, but it gives you a detailed action list after it has analyzed your solution.

The presentation covers the following discussion points:

  • What is Office 365 CLI?
  • Upgrading your solution using Office 365 CLI

Webcast demo shows the following things:

  • How to use Office 365 CLI to get a list of actions to be used in your solution to upgrade that to the latest version of SharePoint Framework
  • Example report on the needed upgrade action

What is SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns & Practices (PnP) webcast series?

SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns and Practices

SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns & Practices (PnP) webcast series covers different patterns, practices and topics around development with Office 365 and SharePoint. The majority of the topics are valid for the Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises. Our objective is to release a new webcast weekly or bi-weekly with few slides and a live demo of the covered topic. All webcasts are published at the PnP YouTube channel with additional references to the existing materials.

PnP is a community-driven open source project where Microsoft and external community members are sharing their learning’s around implementation practices for Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises (SharePoint Framework and add-in model). Active development and contributions happen in our GitHub repositories under dev branch and each month there will be a master merge (monthly release) with more comprehensive testing and communications. Latest activities and future plans are covered in our monthly community calls which are open to anyone from the community. Download invite from

This is work done by the community for the community without any actual full-time people. It’s been great to find both internal and external people who are willing to assist and share their learning’s for the benefit of others. This way we can build on the common knowledge of us all. Currently, the program is facilitated by Microsoft, but already at this point, we have multiple community members as part of the Core team and we are looking to extend the Core team with more community members.

If you have any questions, comments or feedback on SharePoint Development topics, PnP program or this blog post, please use the Microsoft Tech Community (SharePoint Developer group).
