How To Hide SharePoint List Using PnP PowerShell

In this tutorial, I show you how to hide a SharePoint list using PnP PowerShell. Before you run the script you must install the PnP PowerShell package for your On-Premises or online environment.

Prerequisite for PnP PowerShell

Run the below command to install the PnP package. For this sample, I am installing the PnP package for SharePoint 2016 On-premises.
Install-Module SharePointPnPPowerShell2016

Hide the SharePoint List using PnP PowerShell

Set all below variable as your environment and run the command to hide the SharePoint list,
  1. #Site URL where SharePoint List Exist replace the URL with your actaull site URL  
  2. $SiteURL = ""  
  3. #List name that you want to hide  
  4. $ListName = "TestList"  
  5. #Connect to PNP Online  
  6. Connect-PnPOnline -Url $SiteURL -UseWebLogin  
  7. #Hide the list using PnP PowerShell  
  8. Set-PnPList -Identity $ListName -Hidden $true Disconnect-PnPOnline
