How to extract and make stp file in SharePoint Online?

In this post we will discuss how we can extract an .stp file and then how we can make an .stp file from the extracted files in SharePoint. We have created a custom list template which usually saves as a .stp file. After saving this .stp file we wanted to modify something in the manifest.xml file.

How to check if user belongs to SharePoint group using C#.Net managed object model code for SharePoint online?

First you can extract the .stp file. Here I have used 7-Zip to extract it like below:

extract stp file sharepoint online
extract stp file sharepoint online

Once it is successfully extracted, you can see the manifest.xml file.

Then you can modify the file using Notepad or Notepad++ (any editor you can use). Once the modification over we can run the below command to create the .stp file again.

Here I have kept the manifest.xml file in the d drive and running the below command.

makecab.exe manifest.xml WorkflowMailTemplates.stp

make stp file sharepoint online
make stp file sharepoint online

Hope this will be helpful.
