Get-PnPSearchCrawlLog Filter to a List or Library

Using the Get-PnpSearchCrawlLog commandlet I wanted to filter the returned resultset to a specific list. Before you begin, you’ll want to make sure you have access to the Crawl Log: https://yourSite-admin.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/searchadmin/crawllogreadpermission.aspx

Connect-PnPOnline -Url "https://sharepointed.sharepoint.com/sites/food" -Credentials (Get-Credential)

$logs = Get-PnPSearchCrawlLog  -filter "https://sharepointed.sharepoint.com/sites/food/Lists/tacos/"

foreach($l in $logs)
{
    Write-Host "    "
    Write-Host $l.Url
    Write-Host $l.ItemId
    Write-Host $l.LogLevel
    Write-Host $l.CrawlTime
}

This will filter the returned results to a specific list. Note: when using Connect-PnPOnline I use my email address and App Password. App Password can be created/found here: https://account.activedirectory.windowsazure.com/AppPasswords.aspx

System.MissingMethodException: Method not found Connect-PnPOnline

Using Visual Studio Code and SharePoint PNP I was trying to make some updates to a list but I wasn’t able to connect to a site.

Connect-PnPOnline -Url "https://taco.sharepoint.com/" -Credentials $creds

Error I was receiving:
System.MissingMethodException: Method not found: ‘System.Runtime.Remoting.ObjectHandle System.Activator.CreateInstance(System.String, System.String)’. at SharePointPnP.PowerShell.Commands.Base.ConnectOnline.ProcessRecord() at System.Management.Automation.CommandProcessor.ProcessRecord()

I tried uninstalling VScode, removed all traces of SharePoint from my laptop, and cleared the GAC. Nothing worked.

Here is what did work:
In VScode:

  1. Open the Command Palette on Windows or Linux with Ctrl+Shift+P. On macOS, use Cmd+Shift+P.
  2. Search for Session.
  3. Click on PowerShell: Show Session Menu.
  4. Choose one of the ___ (x86) options

Not sure how, but I was using an x64 session and SharePoint PNP clearly didn’t like that.
