Remove-SPServiceApplication [-Identity] <SPServiceApplicationPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-RemoveData <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Remove-SPServiceApplication cmdlet deletes the specified service application from the farm.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPServiceApplicationPipeBind

Specifies the GUID of the service application to remove.

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

RemoveData

Optional

SwitchParameter

Deletes all databases and other data associated with the service application.

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

--------------------EXAMPLE---------------------------

Remove-SPServiceApplication 053c34be-d251-488c-8e94-644eae94da26 -RemoveData

This example deletes the service application and its database.

The service application GUID is unique to every farm. You can run the Get-SPServiceApplication cmdlet to see the GUID of the service applications, and then use the result from the Get-SPServiceApplication cmdlet for other SPServiceApplication cmdlets; for example, or Publish-SPServiceApplication.
