How to get rendering data source location either any one of below,

  • Get items final layout renderings with their data source location
  • Get rendering data source location by specific Rendering folder path. Ex: /sitecore/layout/Renderings/Rendering-folder-path

Expected result:

Rendering    |    DatasourceLocation
------------      ----------------------

{289347-238740-230489} | sitecore/content/datasource-location

I tried with ">Get-Rendering" this doesn't have datasource location property.Below list of properties available

PS master:\>Get-Item /sitecore/content/itempath | Get-Rendering -Datasource "*"

OwnerItemId         : 
OwnerItemPath       : 
Cachable            :
Conditions          :
Datasource          : 
ItemID              :

Parameters          :

VaryByLogin         :
VaryByParameters    :
VaryByQueryString   :

RenderingName                           False    en       1       {} Controller rendering

In this example, the item's FinalLayout contains the renderings.

$defaultLayout = Get-LayoutDevice -Default
$rootItem = Get-Item -Path "master:" -ID "{961563FC-3445-4558-BF3A-06DF06BA6298}"
Get-Rendering -Item $rootItem -Device $defaultLayout -FinalLayout


From here you can filter out renderings that have a Datasource specified. In cases where the value is a GUID rather than a path you can use Get-Item to find out more details.
