Returns an authoritative page.

Get-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryAuthority [[-Identity] <AuthorityPagePipeBind>] -SearchApplication <SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]



Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the query authority to get.

The type must be a valid URL, in the form http://server_name; or an instance of a valid AuthorityPage object.




Specifies the search application that contains the authority page to get.

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.




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.

note Note:

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.

Detailed Description

The Get-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryAuthority cmdlet reads a QueryAuthority object when the authoritative page is created or deleted or when the query rank is modified.

If the Identity parameter is not specified, this cmdlet returns the authority page collection for the specified search application.
