PowerShell Script: Enable and Add Content Type in Document Library


We created content types using power shell script. Now, we need to enable content types and add these content types in the list.


$site = Get-SPSite “url of site collection”

$rootWeb $site.RootWeb

$docLib $rootWeb.Lists[“Shared Documents”]

$customContentTypes “ContentType1,ContentType2,ContentType3”

$docLib.ContentTypesEnabled $true


$customContentTypeArray $customContentTypes.Split(“,”)

foreach($customContentType in $customContentTypeArray)


    $customCT $rootWeb.ContentTypes[$customContentType]
