Parameters

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.CategoryPipeBind

Specifies the metadata category to update.

The type must be a valid name of a metadata category, for example, MetadataCategory1, or an instance of a valid Category object.

AssignmentCollection

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPAssignmentCollection

Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

noteNote:

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.

AutoCreateNewManagedProperties

Optional

System.Nullable

Specifies that when a new crawled property in this category is found, a corresponding managed property is created and mapped to this new crawled property.

Note:Null indicates that the value is unchanged.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

DiscoverNewProperties

Optional

System.Nullable

Specifies that if there are unknown properties in this category, these new properties are discovered during a crawl.

Note:Null indicates that the value is unchanged.

MapToContents

Optional

System.Nullable

Specifies that all crawled properties of type string are mapped to corresponding managed properties of this category.

Note:Null indicates that the value is unchanged.

Name

Optional

System.String

Specifies the name of the enterprise search metadata category.

The type must be a valid name of a metadata category, for example MetadataCategory1.

Note:Null indicates that the value is unchanged.

SearchApplication

Optional

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind

Specifies the search application that contains the enterprise search metadata categories.

The type must be a valid search application name, for example, SearchApp1, or an instance of a valid SearchServiceApplication object.

WhatIf

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Displays a message that describes the effect of the command instead of executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters
