Install Office 365 Powershell modules

I was about to test the new Exchange online V2 Powershell module and discovered that none of the powershell modules for Office 365 was installed. I have recently reinstalled my machine and have not connected powershell sice. Thereby I started to search for all new modules to install. And why not share this with all.

Most of the current modules is available in online repository. thereby no download of msi file and installation. You only run install-module command with the name of the module. These are the modules I found that are in scope of Office 365:

Install-Module -Name MsOnline
Install-Module -Name AzureAD
Install-Module -Name MicrosoftTeams
Install-Module -Name ExchangeOnlineManagement
Install-Module -Name Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell
Install-Module -Name Microsoft.PowerApps.PowerShell
Install-Module -Name WhiteboardAdmin

Why not take the installation a bit further. If a module already is installed, I want to be able to upgrade the module. For this you use the update-module command. Lets build an array with all modules and loop through. check if each module is installed and update if true:

$modules = @(“MsOnline”,”AzureAD”,”MicrosoftTeams”,”ExchangeOnlineManagement”,”Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell”,”Microsoft.PowerApps.PowerShell”,”WhiteboardAdmin”)
foreach($module in $modules){if(Get-Module -ListAvailable -Name $module) {update-module -name $module -force} else {install-module -name $module -skippublishercheck -force}}

Finally I ended up making a one liner to run each time i want to install or update all the modules on a computer:

@(“MsOnline”,”AzureAD”,”MicrosoftTeams”,”ExchangeOnlineManagement”,”Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell”,”Microsoft.PowerApps.PowerShell”,”WhiteboardAdmin”)|% $_{if(Get-Module -ListAvailable -Name $_) {update-module -name $_ -force} else {install-module -name $_ -skippublishercheck -force}}
