During my latest development, my client asked me to get all Communication Sites using PnP PowerShell.
For Example, Communication Sites, Hub Sites, Classic team site, and Modern team site.
From UI we can just filter the site type and get it done, but listing down all sites is a very time-consuming task.
Get all Communication sites from Tenant.
To Do this from UI, you can just follow below steps.
- Go to the SharePoint admin center by typing URL
- Select Sites -> Active Sites
- Go to Template
- Select Filter by Template
- Select Communication Site
In this way, we can get all communication sites from SharePoint Online manually from UI. Now let us see the same results using SPO PowerShell
PowerShell to get all Communication sites from SharePoint Online
Now we are going write a PowerShell script to retrieve all communication sites from PowerShell.
Step 1. Connect to SharePoint Admin Site
Step 2. Get All communication site.
And here is a script to retrieve all Communication sites from SharePoint Online tenant.
PnP PowerShell to find all Communication sites
Below are the PnP commandlets used to find all communication sites from tenant.

Retrieve All Communication Sites using SPO PowerShell
In a similar way as PnP PowerShell, we can fin all communication sites using SharePoint Management Shell as well. Below is the code for the same.
$AdminSite = "https://sharePointgems-admin.sharepoint.com" #Connect SharePoint Admin Site Connect-SPOService -url $AdminSite -Credential (Get-Credential) #Retrieve All Communication Sites Get-SPOSite -Template SITEPAGEPUBLISHING#0 -Limit ALL
This script results will list down all communication sites based on template type called “SITEPAGEPUBLISHING#0”.
