Disables a Microsoft InfoPath 2010 form template on a farm before an upgrade.

Stop-SPInfoPathFormTemplate [-Identity] <SPFormTemplatePipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-TimeLeft <Nullable>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]



Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the InfoPath 2010 form template to start.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a form template (for example, InfoPathFormTemplate1); a valid name of a form template files (for example, FormTemplateFile1.xsn); or an instance of a valid SPFormTemplate 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.

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.




Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters




Specifies the time duration, in minutes, before the form template will be quiesced. The default value is 0.

An integer value in the range from 0 to 1440.




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

Detailed Description

The Stop-SPInfoPathFormTemplate cmdlet quiesces, or disables, an InfoPath 2010 form template before it upgrades the form. Before a form is updated it is quiesced, which disables access to the form. Use Start-SPIPFormTemplate to unquiesce, or activate, a form template after the form is upgraded.
