Script for updating URLrewrite-rules

In these days urlrewrite might not be the first choice for using but I had a situationen where i needed to be applied.
This offered an oppertunity to create a script to automate the addition of custom rules sets for a specific file.
And I got to fiddle with xml-manipulation which is also fun.
This script reads an csv for inputaddress and ruleTemplate file
csv – addresses.csv
ruleName,target,destination
tomteland,www.tomteland.se,tomteland

Powershellscript, this script reads web.config from designated place makes a copy to $workingDir where updates are applied to file in $workingDir. This a pretty specific script, for example outboundRules are applied before <precondition>-tagg, but haven’t really experimented what happens if the preconditions aren’t there for example. So better to use as inspiration rather than copy paste. Also rewriteRules will need to be adjusted for your particuliar scenarios. Matching for rules to change are made with replace() towards #rulename#, #destination and #target# cause this was easier for this scenario.

Finding duplicate content types

Got to a chance to build a script for finding content type duplicates in a Site Collection

#Description:Find duplicate content types in sitecollection

Add-PSSnapin microsoft.sharepoint.powershell

$siteURL = "https://test-mysite.mycompany.com"
$site = get-spsite $siteURL
$object = @()

foreach ($newWeb in $site.AllWebs) {
    foreach ($cType in $newWeb.contentTypes) {
        $tempObj = new-object PSObject -Property @{webURL=$newWeb.Url; CTName=$cType.Name; CTid=$cType.Id}
        $object += $tempObj
        }
    }
#sort out duplicates
$duplicates = $object |Group-Object ctid |Where-Object {$_.count -gt 1} |select -ExpandProperty group

write-output "Found $($object.count) content types in $siteURL"
write-output "Total duplicates: $($duplicates.count)"
$duplicates
