Parameters

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.ScopePipeBind

Specifies the query scope to delete.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a scope (for example, Scope1); or an instance of a valid Scope 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.

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

SearchApplication

Optional

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind

Specifies the search application that contains the query scope collection.

The type must be a valid GUID, of the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid search application name (for example, SearchApp1); or an instance of a valid SearchServiceApplication object.

Url

Optional

System.Uri

Filters to delete scopes of the specified results URL.

The type must be a valid URL, in the form http://server_name.

WhatIf

Optional

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

Detailed Description

noteNote:

After you upgrade a Search service application from SharePoint Server 2010 to SharePoint Server 2013, you can view shared scopes, but you cannot create, update, or delete them. Therefore, you cannot use this cmdlet for shared scopes after upgrade. However, you can convert shared scopes to result sources, which serve a similar purpose. Similarly, after you upgrade a SharePoint Server 2010 site collection to SharePoint Server 2013 mode, you can view local scopes, but you cannot create, update, or delete them. Therefore, you cannot use this cmdlet for local scopes after you upgrade a site collection. However, you can convert local scopes to result sources, which serve a similar purpose.

The Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryScope cmdlet deletes one or more specified shared scopes from the query scope collection. A query scope represents a query results scope used by all shared search applications on the farm.
