Parameters

Parameter Required Type Description

AuthenticationMode

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.BusinessData.SystemSpecific.OData.ODataAuthenticationMode

Specifies the type of authentication mode required for the Business Connectivity Services connection.

The value for the authentication mode is any one of the following options:

--PassThrough

--RevertToSelf

--Credentials

--WindowsCredentials

--DigestCredentials

--ClientCertificate

--Anonymous

ServiceAddressURL

Required

System.Uri

Specifies the URL for the OData service. The URL does not have be Internet facing. This is the final destination from which data is retrieved.

ServiceContext

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPServiceContextPipeBind

Specifies the service context which is in the form of an instance of an SPServiceContext object, an SPSiteAdministration object identifier, or a SPSite object. An example of a service context value is an identifier from the ID field, a string identifier, a URI, or a string representation of a GUID.

Name

Required

System.String

Specifies the name of the Business Connectivity Services connection 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.

ExtensionProvider

Optional

System.String

Extends the functionality provided by the OData connector in Business Connectivity Service as well as provides the fully qualified assembly name of an OData extension provider. Fully qualified assembly name should contain following parameters in this order:

Namespace.Class, Assembly Name, Version, Culture and Public Key. E.g. “Contoso.ExtensionProvider.Server, Contoso.ExtensionPRovider, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31ba4812ca364d35”. To clear the value of ExtensionProvider, provide an empty string, for example, “”.

SecureStoreTargetApplicationId

Optional

System.String

Specifies the Secure Store Target Application ID. Works in conjunction with the AuthenticationMode parameter.

The value for the SecureStoreTargetApplicationId parameter is any one of the following options:

--Credentials

--WindowsCredentials

--DigestCredentials

--ClientCertificate
