SharePoint 2013,

In graphical mode, in the authorizations properties of a sites collection, we can decide if users can request the access or not.

I'm wondering how to do this in powershell.

$spsite = Get-SPSite http://URL



I thought it was the way to do it, but no =/ And with my poor english, I don't find anything on google.

If it is more explicit with this :

1st, on the site collection, you do this http://i.msdn.microsoft.com/dynimg/IC630042.png

Then you click on site authorizations, and you got this (can't post image without reputation :s ) http://hpics.li/4fbd8be

I just want to uncheck this parameter, in powershell :)




Check out SPWeb.RequestAccessEnabled, if set to false users can not request access to the web. But it seems to be only read only. Source

It seems to be related to SPWeb.RequestAccessEmail, so I would try setting this one to an empty string ("") and see how that works.

Zimmergren has written about it here, some useful comments

    You just save me from a headache ! I confirm that SPWeb.RequestAccessEnabled is read only. But if i put the RequestAccessEmail to "" (empty). This becomes uncheck ! So users won't be able to request access ! Thank you a lot @Robert Lindgren ! – Nico Jun 25 '13 at 7:30
