Parameters

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Credential

Required

System.Management.Automation.PSCredential

Indicates the Credential object that specifies the credentials of the new managed account. If you use Credential, you cannot specify Username and Password.

Password

Required

System.Security.SecureString

Specifies the password for the user specified in Username. If you use Credential, you cannot specify Username and Password.

Username

Required

System.String

Specifies the user name of the new managed account. If you use Credential, you cannot specify Username and Password.

The type must be a valid user name, in the form domain\username.

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.

Detailed Description

The New-SPManagedAccount cmdlet registers a new managed account for the specified Credential or Username, and Password.
