5 thoughts on “SharePoint Online: Bulk Update User Profiles using PowerShell

  • I am updating About Me of user profile using this script. If About Me contains & it is updating as \u0026 in the json file. About Me on Delve is not showing the entire content. It is trimming the content after &. If I go to backend user profile, edit profile and update, it shows the complete About Me text.

    Ex: He is an expert in SharePoint & Powershell. This gets update in json as “He is an expert in SharePoint \u0026 Powershell.”

    on Delve it shows He is an expert in SharePoint

    How can we resolve this?

  • I’m seeing the following error message: “New-PnPUPABulkImportJob : Folder /User Profile Import does not exist.” Is the path correct?

    • Create a new document library “User Profile Import” in your root site, so that the log files gets saved there.

  • How are you able to get the automation working? Using the ClientId and ClientSecret returns an Access denied error with New-PnPUPBulkImportJob.

    • You got to grant access to your Client ID on the tenant, If you are using ClientId and ClientSecret method!
