I have 2 templates:

  • Template A: PersonalTemplate
  • Template B: PrivateTemplate

Here I want to inherit Template B in Template A using the PowerShell script.

  • It sounds like you just need to set the Base template field (__Base template). Is that what you're hoping to do? If so, you should be able to find what you need here: doc.sitecorepowershell.com/… Commented Mar 21, 2019 at 13:46

Sitecore PowerShell has a function called Add-BaseTemplate. This function can add one or more base templates to a template item.

There are multiple ways to call it, but the simplest is to get both template items and then pass those to the function:

Add-BaseTemplate -Item <Item> -TemplateItem <TemplateItem[]>

You can use that to add Template B to the base templates for Template A like this:

$templateB = Get-Item master:\templates\path\to\TemplateB
$templateA = Get-Item master:\templates\path\to\TemplateA

Add-BaseTemplate -Item $templateA -TemplateItem $templateB
