SharePoint 2013
 

Topic Last Modified: 2014-03-11

Deletes a result source.

Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchResultSource [-Identity] <ResultSourcePipeBind> -Owner <SearchObjectOwner> -SearchApplication <SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This cmdlet deletes a specified result source. This cmdlet supports the same delete operations as are supported through the "Manage Result Sources" page in the SharePoint Central Administration website. The result source cannot be a built-in source (a built-in source has the BuiltIn property set to true).

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.ResultSourcePipeBind

Specifies the result source to delete. The type must be a valid GUID string, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a result source (for example, "Custom SharePoint Result Source"); or an instance of a valid Source object.

Owner

Required

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchObjectOwner

Specifies the search object owner and its level to retrieve result source.

SearchApplication

Required

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind

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

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
