Report Server Feature - $Resources:ReportServerResources,FeatureTitle; mysteriously shown in Site Collection Features. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In my site collections, I am suddenly seeing $Resources:ReportServerResources,FeatureTitle; feature appearing. I have recently ungraded our environment with MAY CU 2016 but I don't know if this feature was there before as well. As far as I can remember, it wasn't there though I am not 100 % sure.

    May be applying MAY CU 2016 triggered something which brought this site collection feature to all site collections. Any reason how it came OR how to get rid of this?

    There are a few Site collections where this feature is even enabled due to which we are seeing the below -

    First link is broken - "An unexpected error has occurred."

    Second link takes us to a 2010 variant of the Reporting service page -

  • Hi,

    You posted in SharePoint 2013 forum, so do you use SharePoint 2013?

    If yes, please uninstall SSRS Add-in for SharePoint 2010, which would cause unexpected issues. You need to install SSRS Add-in for SharePoint 2013.

    You can use the following script to get all installed features:

    $allSiteFeatures = Get-SPFeature | Where-Object { $_.Scope -eq "Site" }
    
    $activeFeatures = Get-SPFeature -Site "http://sitecollectionUrl"
    
     
    
    $allSiteFeatures | ForEach-Object {
    
    $active = $false
    
        foreach($feature in $activeFeatures)
    
        {
    
          if($feature.Id.ToString() -eq $_.Id.ToString())
    
          {
    
             $active = $true
    
          }
    
        }
    
        if(!$active)
    
        {
    
           $_.DisplayName
    
        }
    
    }


    How to uninstall feature:

    Uninstall-SPFeature -Identity "name or ID of feature"

  • Hi,

    Where did you see “$Resources:ReportServerResources,FeatureTitle;”? In Site Settings? Or creating a new site?

    It seems the issue is caused by Reporting Services Add-in. Try to uninstall and re-install the Reporting Services Add-in (rsSharePoint.msi) in your environment.

    A similar case for your reference:

  • Hi Dean,

    I am seeing this in site settings. There's a Site Collection feature - 

    If this feature is activated, I see the them in site settings, if inactive, its not there. 

    I have this installed on the server -

    So another question arises, from where did this feature come? This is in many site collections.

    Is there a powershell script to look for this feature from all site collections in the web app and uninstall it?
