'Features' of the FeatureAdmin Tool

  • Allows to cleanup feature definitions with scope:invalid and orphaned activated features - which could otherwise prevent you from a successful upgrade or migration
  • Allows to comfortably upgrade all features in your farm with the click of a button
  • Made for administrators: requires only .NET framework version 4.52, requires no administration
  • Once started, asynchronously loads all feature definitions, locations (farm, web apps, site collections, webs) and all activated features
  • Best if started as Administrator with farm admin rights, but FarmAdmin also tries to start with less privileges
  • PowerFul search and filter for features and locations, to find the features you are looking for
You can’t perform that action at this time.
