Does anyone have a script that will create users from a CSV with ALL available fields available in Office365  and assign licenses, the license plans we have are as follows.


Really pulling my hair out with this, have tried to change existing ones but no joy.

Thanks in Advance

You can get all the available SKUs for your tenant via: Get-MsolAccountSku

If you mean a full list of all available plans overall, the closest thing you can get to it is here:

Start out with a CSV file that will be used to create users in O365.  This is similar to what the CSV could look like based on the fields you can provide input for...

UserPrincipalName,City,Country,Department,DisplayName,Fax,FirstName,LastName,MobilePhone,Office,PhoneNumber,PostalCode,State,StreetAddress,Title,My Town,United States,IT Department,John Doe,111-111-1111,John,Doe,222-222-2222,Headquarters,333-333-3333,11111,CA,123 My Street,Network Engineer

Open in new window

Then connect to Office 365 through PowerShell.

Next, you will run this command to create users in O365 from the CSV file...

Import-Csv "C:\NewUsers.csv" | ForEach-Object { New-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName $_.UserPrincipalName -City $_.City -Country $_.Country -Department $_.Department -DisplayName $_.DisplayName -Fax $_.Fax -FirstName $_.FirstName -LastName $_.LastName -MobilePhone $_.MobilePhone -Office $_.Office -PhoneNumber $_.PhoneNumber -PostalCode $_.PostalCode -State $_.State -StreetAddress $_.StreetAddress -Title $_.Title }

Open in new window

Lastly, this article provides the reference you need to assign licenses and license options to existing users in O365 ...

Let me know.
