Is it possible to disable Document Parsing for a given SharePoint 2013 on-premises site collection so that I do not have to disable it for the entire web application the site collection resides within?

1 Answer 1


You can disable the parser on SPWeb objects via SPWeb.ParserEnabled = $false.

  • Thanks. That confirms what I was gathering from my reading of the formal MS articles. I was surprised, however, that the examples were often (if not exclusively) dealing with with the root site of the farm (e.g., http://portal.contoso.com). Even Bill Baer's article on the Document Parsing failed to mention (unless I missed it) that the ParerEnabled setting exists for each SPWeb, which could, of course, be a site collection.
