Disable Event (ItemUpdated) with powershell


I'm trying to update an item in a list without firing the ItemUpdated-Event. In SP2007 this was possible with EnableEventFiring () and DisableEventFiring() - now MSDN says its obsolete. I'm wondering if there is a way to disable Events from powershell for an update? Any hints for me?


Cheers and thanks for your time!

Hi MaxMelcher,


As what you said, the “EnableEventFiring” is obsolete  for sharepoint 2010. I don’t know if there is a way to enable it using PowerShell. But Sharepoint 2010 has created a new property “EventFiringEnabled” to replace the “EnableEventFiring” method.


More information about “EventFiringEnabled



Also here is an article about toggling events, I think it’s helpful to you.
