Remarks

Running this command from the Windows Command Shell (cmd.exe) or PowerShell for Windows OS XP, 7, 8, 8.1 without bash installed might require additional formatting for command options that have JSON, XML or JavaScript values because the command shell treat quotes differently. For example, this is how ApplicationCustomizer user custom action can be created from the Windows cmd.exe:

o365 spo customaction set -u https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/test -i 058140e3-0e37-44fc-a1d3-79c487d371a3 -p '{\"testMessage\":\"Test message\"}'

Note, how the clientSideComponentProperties option (-p) has escaped double quotes '{\"testMessage\":\"Test message\"}' compared to execution from bash or immersive mode '{"testMessage":"Test message"}'.

The --rights option accepts case-sensitive values.

Note, specifying the scope option might speed up the execution of the command, but would not update the scope. If the scope has to be changed, then the existing custom action should be removed and new should be added with different scope.
