I am using site designs to create new site collections attached to a hub site with the appropriate features enabled, now I seem to have hit a wall between classic and modern features. I have an action to activate features such as Project Functionality.


    "verb": "activateSPFeature",

I would like to now remove some features, Specifically the "Site Pages" feature to stop the end-user from creating site pages on a particular set of site collections. However, I do not seem to be able to find the GUID of the "Site Pages" or the "Mobile Browser View" Feature.

Site Pages Feature

Does anybody know how I can find this?

I have tried to use the PnP cmdlet however this only provides me with classic features, cmdlet used:


Any help would be appreciated - It seems to me there is a missing link connection to be able to pull the properties of these features.

Thanks in advance!

You can prevent a web from using the "modern" page experience by disabling the web scoped feature with ID B6917CB1-93A0-4B97-A84D-7CF49975D4EC (name = "Site Pages"). To re-enable the "modern" page experience at the web level, you need to activate the feature again.


When you disable the feature, you can no longer create new "modern" pages, but the already created pages stay working using the "modern" user experience.

Source: Web level configuration.

If you want to completely disable the "modern" experience, it's best to use the tenant setting for this. Go to your tenant admin center (for example, contoso-admin.sharepoint.com), go to Settings, and select the "classic" experience.

  • Hi Ganesh, Thanks for the reply, its not disabling the modern experience I am trying to achieve, removing the 'Site Pages' Feature, will remove the ability for end users to create new pages. is this the feature that the above ID relates too? Commented Dec 12, 2019 at 9:08
  • Yes, Check the note section if you disable the feature then user cannot create modern pages in your site. Commented Dec 12, 2019 at 10:02
