Quick Tip – Get SharePoint Build Version with PowerShell

Here’s a quick one-liner in PowerShell to check the SharePoint patch level / build version.

(Get-SPFarm).BuildVersion

The output will be in table form and will include:

  • Major (ex. 15)
  • Minor (ex. 0)
  • Build (ex. 5189)
  • Revision (ex. 1000)

To reference the build number (for checking patch levels) you can use the following PowerShell one-liner:

((Get-SPFarm).BuildVersion).Build

Last one-liner to get all of the properties concatenated together (ex. 15.0.5189.1000):

(Get-SPFarm).BuildVersion -Join ‘.’
