I have a feature with webparts that needs to be activated using powershell. I need a way to either hide the feature on the Site Collection Administration => Features (under Site Settings) or to prevent activation from the Site Settings. Any ideas greatly appreciated.

  • Why does it have to be activated via PowerShell? Arguments? – RJ Cuthbertson Sep 6 '12 at 20:22
  • Don't give your user site collection admin rights. – Maria Burton Sep 6 '12 at 20:26

If you are the creator of the feature, simply set the Hidden attribute to TRUE in the feature.xml file. That will make it so the feature cannot be enabled/disabled through the UI but can still be controlled through powershell
