I need a PowerShell script or a .aspx page to get the list of items which has no reference or link to it. Can anyone help with this?


If you are using powershell you can take a look at the Get-ItemReferrer documentation https://doc.sitecorepowershell.com/appendix/common/get-itemreferrer that can be used check if an item has any referrences to it. I have used the following powershell script:

$items = Get-ChildItem -Path 'master:/sitecore/content/Home' -Recurse
$results = New-Object System.Collections.ArrayList

foreach ($item in $items) {
    $links = $item | Get-ItemReferrer

    if ($links.Count -eq 0) {

$results | Format-Table Name, @{ Label = 'Path'; Expression={ $_.Paths.Path } } 

In C# you can use ItemLink[] itemLinks = Globals.LinkDatabase.GetReferrers(item); to get all referrers of a specific item. I would also recommend to run Rebuild Link databases from control panel prior to running the reports to make sure Link Database is up to date.
