I'm using Sharepoint 2013

I have a library of documents in which I upload different documents, I would like that when I upload these documents, the fields that I have there in the form do not appear.

enter image description here

I don't want the last two fields to show up when uploading new documents, I'm only interested in hiding them in the upload.asmx form.

Try to do what it says in this documentation but this hides the fields from me in all forms including DispForm.aspx and EditForm.aspx


I also made use of the sputility library but I don't get any result

I followed the documentation found in this git

And add the following script in a new Web Part:

<script src="/site/Test/jquery-1.12.4.js"></script>
<script src="/site/Test/sputility.min.js"></script>
$(window).load(function () {
   SPUtility.GetSPField('Aprobador SGC').MakeReadOnly();

The screenshot you provide actually is a EditForm.aspx. If you want to hide a field in the EditForm.aspx, you could run below PowerShell as administrator.

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
#Get the Web
$SPWeb = Get-SPWeb "site collection URL"
#Get the List
$SPList = $SPWeb.Lists["library name"]
#Get the Field
$SPField = $SPList.Fields["column name"]
$SPField.ShowInEditForm = $false

  • I have to run power shell from the server or I can do it from my client machine ?
