Published: July 16, 2012

Applies to:  SharePoint Foundation 2013 | SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise

Set-SPTimerJob [-Identity] <SPTimerJobPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Schedule <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameters

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPTimerJobPipeBind

Specifies the timer job to update.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a timer job (for example, TimerJob1); or an instance of a valid SPTimerJob 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.

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

Schedule

Required

System.String

Specifies the schedule for running the timer job.

The type must be a valid SharePoint Timer service (SPTimer) schedule in the form of any one of the following schedules:

- Every 5 minutes between 0 and 59

- Hourly between 0 and 59

- Daily at 15:00:00

- Weekly between Fri 22:00:00 and Sun 06:00:00

- Monthly at 15 15:00:00

- Yearly at Jan 1 15:00:00
