Parameters

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Optional

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.CategoryPipeBind

Specifies the metadata category to retrieve.

The type must a valid search application name, for example, MetadataCategory1, or an instance of a valid Category object.

SearchApplication

Required

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind

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

The type must 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.

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.

SiteCollection

Optional

System.Guid

Specifies that the metadata categories returned are to be within the scope of a site collection (SPSite).

The type must be a valid GUID that specifies the property set in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh.

Tenant

Optional

System.Guid

Specifies that the metadata categories returned are to be within the scope of a tenant.

The type must be a valid GUID that specifies the property set in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh.

Detailed Description

This cmdlet reads a MetadataCategory object when the category is created, updated, or deleted. You should run this cmdlet when the initial search is configured, and after a new crawled property category is discovered during a crawl. SPEnterpriseSearchMetadataCategory represents a category in the enterprise search metadata property schema.

If the Identity parameter is not specified, this cmdlet returns the metadata category collection for the specified search service application.
