import "@pnp/sp/site-designs";

// Limited to 30 actions in a site script, but runs synchronously
await sp.siteDesigns.applySiteDesign("75b9d8fe-4381-45d9-88c6-b03f483ae6a8","");

// Better use the following method for 300 actions in a site script
const task = await sp.web.addSiteDesignTask("75b9d8fe-4381-45d9-88c6-b03f483ae6a8");


import { sp } from "@pnp/sp";
import "@pnp/sp/site-designs";

// Retrieving all site designs
const allSiteDesigns = await sp.siteDesigns.getSiteDesigns();
console.log(`Total site designs: ${allSiteDesigns.length}`);

// Retrieving a single site design by Id

console.log(rights.length > 0 ? rights[0].PrincipalName : "");

// Grant
await sp.siteDesigns.grantSiteDesignRights("75b9d8fe-4381-45d9-88c6-b03f483ae6a8", [""]);

const runs = await sp.web.getSiteDesignRuns();
const runs2 = await sp.siteDesigns.getSiteDesignRun("");

// Get runs specific to a site design
const runs3 = await sp.web.getSiteDesignRuns("75b9d8fe-4381-45d9-88c6-b03f483ae6a8");
const runs4 = await sp.siteDesigns.getSiteDesignRun("", "75b9d8fe-4381-45d9-88c6-b03f483ae6a8");

// For more information about the site script actions
