Get-SPWebApplication "mysiteurl" | Get-SPSite -Limit All | Get-SPWeb -Limit ALL | % {Enable-SPFeature "Some_Feature_Id"} -Url $_.Url

I am trying to use the above Power Shell script to activate Site scoped feature in my news feed and all the My Sites in Share point 2013. But I am getting the below error:

ForEach-Object : Cannot bind parameter 'RemainingScripts'. Cannot convert the "-Url" value of type "System.String" to type "System.Management.Automation.ScriptBlock".

Can any one Please tell me what I should do.

  • It seems you are missing the ForEach code. Can you update the question with the complete code – Amal Hashim Nov 25 '14 at 15:07
  • looks like you have copy paste error, white space or special characters copied. Retype the above command in the powershell windows and try again. Otherwise your script have no issue. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Nov 25 '14 at 15:51

I would like to thank anyone that has viewed my question and kindly replied to me.

The above scripts didn't work for me. I was getting the following error:

Get-SPSite : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument '$null'. At line:3 char:20 + $siteCollections = Get-SPSite –WebApplication "Some-Site + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: (:) [Get-SPSite], ParameterBindingException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPCmdletGetSite

So the below script works just fine:

$feature = Get-SPFeature -Id some-feature-Id

$siteCollections = Get-SPSite –WebApplication Some-Site

foreach($siteCollection in $siteCollections)

   Write-Host "Activating" $feature.DisplayName "on" $siteCollection.Url

   Enable-SPFeature $feature -Url $siteCollection.Url 


To Disable features just replace Enable with Disable

To enable feature on all sites of a particular web application. Use below script

Get-SPWebApplication"“<WebApplicationURL>" | Get-SPSite -Limit ALL |ForEach-Object {Enable-SPFeature “MyFeatureID” -Url $_.Url -confirm:$false}’

Source http://www.greggalipeau.com/2011/08/23/sharepoint-2010-powershell-enabledisable-feature-for-all-site-collections/


Get the web application. Loop through all site collections inside it and compare the WebTemplate to SPSMSITE#0 (My Site Template) and then activate the given feature.

$SPWebApp = Get-SPWebApplication 'Web application Url'
$FeatureId = 'Feature ID'
foreach ($SPSite in $SPWebApp.Sites)
    if( $SPSite.RootWeb.WebTemplate -eq "SPSMSITE#0" )
        enable-spfeature -Force -URL $SPSite.URL -identity $FeatureId -confirm:$false
