Use Powershell ISE for SharePoint 2010

To be able to use the ISE for SharePoint, you can configure it to load the SharePoint cmdlets automatically.

Scot Hillier wrote a great article about it. Read “Setting up PowerShell ISE for SharePoint 2010”.

If you only want to use the SharePoint cmdlets once, you can register them with this two lines:

If ((Get-PSSnapIn -Name Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) -eq $null )
{ Add-PSSnapIn -Name Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell }
