Returns the site subscription for the given URL or all site subscriptions in the local farm.

Get-SPSiteSubscription [[-Identity] <SPSiteSubscriptionPipeBind>] [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]


Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the ID of the subscription.

The type must be a valid URL, in the form http://server_name.




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.


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.




Specifies the default site subscription. Any site created without specifying a site subscription ID will be part of the default.

Detailed Description

The Get-SPSiteSubscription cmdlet returns the site subscription for the given URL when the Identity parameter is used. If no parameter is specified, all unique site subscriptions in the farm are listed.

Input Types
