Usually we would have used PowerShell script to get the Active Features alone. In a recent requirement, I have to take the active and InActive Features as well. That too, in all the scopes. i.e., WebApp, Site, Web etc., Hence, as usual coming with a Code Snippet.

Here, the only Logic is, we need to take all the features in an object. The second object will have only the activated features. Hence, the difference will give us the inactive features.

     $script:Progress = "3:Entered"
     
     # Get the WebApplication
     $WebApplication = Get-SPWebApplication $Config.Configuration.WebApplication.URL
 
     # Assign the XML Output File Paths
     $Features_XML_Path = $scriptBase + "\Reports-$LogTime\Features.xml"
     
     # Create the XML File Tags
     $xmlWriter = New-Object System.XMl.XmlTextWriter($Features_XML_Path,$Null)
     $xmlWriter.Formatting = 'Indented'
     $xmlWriter.Indentation = 1
     $XmlWriter.IndentChar = "`t"
     $xmlWriter.WriteStartDocument()
     $xmlWriter.WriteComment('Features List On the WebApplication ' + $WebApplication.DisplayName)
     $xmlWriter.WriteStartElement('WebApplication')
     $xmlWriter.WriteEndElement()

The snippet is self-explanatory. I know it is a lengthy snippet. But, wanted to share with the community.
