I'm trying to use the document ID service on my SharePoint 2010 development instance, but it's not present within the "Site Collection Features". Any ideas?

Site Collection Features

Activate it from PowerShell.

Enable-SPFeature -id docid -url [url]


The silly me put chevrons around the param url!

Also this is NOT available in SharePoint foundation.

I get the error; Enable-SPFeature : The Feature is not a Farm Level Feature and is not found in a Site level defined by the Url sptestserver. – wonea Nov 12 '12 at 15:57
From your message I'm sure you put the url in correctly even though I never realised the code filter removed my chevrons. So I presume you are using foundation which doesn't include this feature. – Hugh Wood Nov 12 '12 at 16:03
@wonea are you using sharepoint foundation? If not then the install may be corrupt, and you need to reinstall sharepoint on the box. – Hugh Wood Nov 12 '12 at 22:28
Yes, I'm using Sharepoint 2010 Foundation. Does Sharepoint 2013 Foundation have any Document ID features? – wonea Nov 13 '12 at 15:11
I actually don't have a test box up at the moment to look for 2013 and MSDN doesn't tell you sorry. From a google search though it does exist in 2013. – Hugh Wood Nov 13 '12 at 15:44
