Disable-SPFeature [-Identity] <SPFeatureDefinitionPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-Url <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameters

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPFeatureDefinitionPipeBind

Specifies the name of the Feature or GUID to disable.

The type must be the name of the Feature folder located in the 14\Template\Features folder or GUID, in the format 21d186e1-7036-4092-a825-0eb6709e9281.

AssignmentCollection

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPAssignmentCollection

Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

noteNote:

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Forces a Feature to be disabled.

Url

Optional

System.String

Specifies the URL of the Web application, site collection, or Web site to which the Feature is being disabled.

The type must be a valid URL, such as http://server_name.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Displays a message that describes the effect of the command instead of executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

Detailed Description

The Disable-SPFeature cmdlet disables a SharePoint Feature at the given scope. If the scope of the Feature is the farm, the URL is not needed. Otherwise, provide the URL at which this Feature is to be deactivated (explicit scope is not needed).

Input Types

Return Types

none

--------------EXAMPLE 1-----------------

Disable-SPFeature –identity "MyCustom" -URL http://somesite

This example disables the "MyCustom" Web site scoped feature at http://somesite.

--------------EXAMPLE 2-----------------

$w = Get-SPWeb http://somesite/myweb | ForEach{ $_.URL }
Get-SPFeature –Web $w |%{ Disable-SPFeature –Identity $_ -URL $w}

This example disables all features in the subsite at http://somesite/myweb.

You do not need to use the SPAssignment cmdlets in this case because the Web object is not stored — only the string value for the URL.
