The Publish-Item command appears to use the older API for publishing (slow).

When I run the script below, I do not see the publishing job appear in the Publishing Service dashboard.

$item = Get-Item -Path "master:" -ID "{110D559F-DEA5-42EA-9C1C-8A5DF7E70EF9}"
$item | Publish-Item -PublishMode Smart
  • I've noticed that Publish-Item uses SPS (at least in my 9.0.1 with SPE 4.7 and 5.0), but if I add the -AsJob flag, it uses the old publisher. I understand why this happens, but it's not very logical since SPS will always be a job. – mikaelnet Jan 17 at 14:09

The Sitecore Publishing Service module replaces the PublishManager API and in most cases should work as you expect. SPE implements the use of the PublishManager but in a way that does not appear to trigger the SPS code.

Below is an example on how to queue publishing jobs to appear in the Publishing Service dashboard.

$database = Get-Database -Name "master"

$item = Get-Item -Path "master:" -ID "{110D559F-DEA5-42EA-9C1C-8A5DF7E70EF9}"

$targets = @()
foreach($publishingTarget in [Sitecore.Publishing.PublishManager]::GetPublishingTargets($database)) {
    $targets += Get-Database -Name $publishingTarget[[Sitecore.FieldIDs]::PublishingTargetDatabase]

$languages = [Sitecore.Data.Managers.LanguageManager]::GetLanguages($database)

# Item publish with children

# All Items
