Returns the site subscription configuration settings for a Metadata Service application.

Get-SPSiteSubscriptionMetadataConfig [-Identity] <SPSiteSubscriptionPipeBind> [-ServiceProxy] <SPMetadataServiceProxyCmdletPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]


Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the site subscription to read.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a site subscription (for example, SiteSubscriptionConfig1); or an instance of a valid SiteSubscription object.




Specifies the proxy of the metadata Service application for the site subscription.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of the service application proxy (for example, ServiceAppProxy1); or an instance of a valid SPMetadataServiceProxy 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

Use the Get-SPSiteSubscriptionMetadataConfig cmdlet to read the site subscription configuration settings for a specified shared service application for the Metadata Service.
