SharePoint Query Tool moves to the PnP Tools repository and v2.7 released

As Codeplex is shutting down the repository for the SharePoint Query Tool has been moved over to the PnP Tools repo. I’m very happy about this move, and if you want to make changes or additions, feel free to make a PR.

Get v2.7 (link on the page)

The code was actually moved over in late May, but today I give you v2.7. There is one major new function, and one function removal.

Firstly, GQL support has been removed as Microsoft is removing support of this preview API.

Secondly I’ve had some requests about the login for SharePoint Online being tricky with cookies and multiple tenants, and lately those with single sign-on on their machines were force logged into their SSO domain.

In the connection dialog you can now choose SharePoint Online Management, which piggy backs on the way the SharePoint Online Management Shell authenticated.

This should give you an easy way to switch between tenants and accounts by re-clicking the sign-in button.
