In this article, let us see how to make a generic script, which has the capability to activate the feature in three scopes. In the previous article, we saw only with the SiteCollection and WebApplication. I thought of making it a more generic and will be helpful across all the projects.

Now the CSV will be looks like below.

Based on the Scope column, the next column needs to be filled.

i.e., if the Scope is Site, then Give the SiteCollectionURL etc.,

Now, the script :-

 $LogTime = Get-Date -Format yyyy-MM-dd_hh-mm
 $LogFile = ".\FeatureActivation-$LogTime.rtf"
 
 
 cls
 
 
 ##================================================================================================
 ## Description	: Feature Activation Demo -

 $Host.UI.RawUI.WindowTitle = "-- Feature Activation Demo --"
 
 $StartDate = Get-Date
 Write-Host -ForegroundColor White "------------------------------------"
 Write-Host -ForegroundColor White "| Feature Activation Demo |"
 Write-Host -ForegroundColor White "| Started on: $StartDate |"
 Write-Host -ForegroundColor White "------------------------------------"
 
 
 
 #start-transcript $logfile
 
 $ErrorActionPreference = "Stop"

         # Try to get the PowerShell Snappin.  If not, then adding the PowerShell snappin on the Catch Block
         Get-PSSnapin "Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell"

     catch
