Posted By:Vijai Anand. R       Posted Date: May 16, 2016    Points: 200    Category: SharePoint    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

In this article you will see how to create content type in SharePoint 2016 with CSOM Extension Method using Console Application.

Please refer Introduction to PnP Core Component for more details. I have created a console application and added SharePointPnPCoreOnline NuGet package for SharePoint 2016 version.



Description: Create new content type to web.


web: Site to be processed - can be root web or sub site

name: Name of the content type

id: Complete ID for the content type

group: Group for the content type

Code Snippet:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Net;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Client;
using OfficeDevPnP.Core;

namespace SP2016PnPCoreComponentDemo
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            // Input Parameters
            string siteUrl = "http://c7395723754:35298/sites/VijaiDemo";
            string userName = "administrator";
            string password = "Xxxxxxxxx";
            string domain = "AD2012";
            string contentType = "PnP Content Type";           
            string id = "0x0100FC6F80F7923849FBBF73F0974A2DEB9E";
            string group = "PnP CT Group"; 

            OfficeDevPnP.Core.AuthenticationManager authMgr = new OfficeDevPnP.Core.AuthenticationManager();

                // Get the client context
                using (var ctx = authMgr.GetNetworkCredentialAuthenticatedContext(siteUrl, userName, password, domain))
                    // Create Content Type using CSOM Extension Method                    
                    ctx.Web.CreateContentType(contentType, id, group);

            catch (Exception ex)
                Console.WriteLine("Error Message: " + ex.Message);


Content type created successfully.
