Disable-SPFeature
       [-Identity] <SPFeatureDefinitionPipeBind>
       [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]

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).

For permissions and the most current information about Windows PowerShell for SharePoint Products, see the online documentation at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=251831 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=251831).

Examples

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

C:\PS>Disable-SPFeature -identity "MyCustom" -URL http://somesite

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

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

C:\PS>$w = Get-SPWeb http://somesite/myweb | ForEach{ $_.URL }

C:\PS>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.

Required Parameters

-Identity

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.

Type:SPFeatureDefinitionPipeBind

Default value:None

Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Server 2013, SharePoint Server 2016

Optional Parameters

-AssignmentCollection

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.

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.
