Returns properties of a Visio Services application proxy or a collection of Visio Services application proxies.

Get-SPVisioServiceApplicationProxy [[-Identity] <SPVisioServiceApplicationProxyPipeBind>] [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]


Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the Visio Services application proxy to get.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a Visio Services application (for example, MyVisioService1); or an instance of a valid SPVisioServiceApplication object.




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.

Detailed Description

The Get-SPVisioServiceApplicationProxy cmdlet reads the settings of a Visio Services application proxy. If the Identity parameter is not specified, this cmdlet returns the collection of Visio Services application proxies on the farm.
