Change Template

# Sample Item
$sourceTemplate = Get-Item -Path "master:\{76036F5E-CBCE-46D1-AF0A-4143F9B557AA}"
# Sample Content
$targetTemplate = Get-Item -Path "master:\{93A8866B-972F-4FBF-8FD9-D6004B18C0AF}"

# Use Get-ItemReferrer to find all items referencing the template, rather than scanning the content tree.
$sourceTemplate | Get-ItemReferrer | Where-Object { $PSItem.Paths.IsContentItem } |
    ForEach-Object {
        Set-ItemTemplate -Item $PSItem -TemplateItem $targetTemplate

Edit MultilistField

Example: The following demonstrates how to set a field to a known list of Ids. The Id is already converted to a GUID string.

# Hardcoded list of Ids.
$item["Allowed Controls"] = "{guid1}|{guid2}|{guid3}"

# Array of Ids.
$ids = [System.String]::Join("|", $array)
$item["Allowed Controls"] = $ids

Example: The following replaces an instance of an Id with an alternate Id. The Id is already converted to a GUID string.

[Sitecore.Data.Fields.MultilistField]$field = $item.Fields["Allowed Controls"]


Parse Html

Example: The following demonstrates the use of the HtmlAgilityPack for parsing html.

$html = "<ul><li>foo</li><li>bar</li></ul>"
$htmlDocument = New-Object -TypeName HtmlAgilityPack.HtmlDocument
foreach($x in $htmlDocument.DocumentNode.SelectNodes("//li")) {

Workflow History

Example: The following prints the workflow history of the home item.

$item = Get-Item -Path "master:" -Id "{110D559F-DEA5-42EA-9C1C-8A5DF7E70EF9}"

$db = Get-Database -Name "master"
$workflowProvider = $db.WorkflowProvider

foreach($version in $item.Versions.GetVersions()) {
    $workflowEvents = $workflowProvider.HistoryStore.GetHistory($version)
    foreach($workflowEvent in $workflowEvents) {
        "[$($workflowEvent.Date)] ($($workflowEvent.User)) $(($workflowEvent.Text -replace '(\r|\n)',''))"

Run JavaScript

Example: The following logs messages to the browser console and then alerts the user with a message.

1..5 | ForEach-Object { 
    Start-Sleep -Seconds 1
    Invoke-JavaScript -Script "console.log('Hello World! Call #$($_) from PowerShell...');" 

Invoke-JavaScript -Script "alert('hello from powershell');"
Invoke JavaScript
Figure - Invoke JavaScript
