Parameters

 

Parameter Required Type Description

BdcObjectType

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.BusinessData.SharedService.SPGetSPBusinessDataCatalogMetadataObjectCmdlet+PSBdcObjectType

Specifies the type of the metadata object to return.

The type must be one of the following valid metadata object types: BdcCatalog, Model, LobSystem, LobSystemInstance, or Entity.

ServiceContext

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPServiceContextPipeBind

Specifies the service context of the Business Data Connectivity Metadata Store metadata object to return.

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.

Name

Optional

System.String

Specifies the name of the metadata object.

Namespace

Optional

System.String

Specifies the namespace of the metadata object.
