Topic Last Modified: 2013-12-18

Removes a file name extension from the list of files that can be crawled.

Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchCrawlExtension [-Identity] <ExtensionPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-SearchApplication <SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchCrawlExtension cmdlet prevents files with this extension from being crawled.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.ExtensionPipeBind

The file name extension to remove.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid file name extension (for example, .xml); or an instance of a valid CrawlExtension 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

SearchApplication

Optional

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind

Specifies the search application that contains the extension collection.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid search application name (for example, SearchApp1); or an instance of a valid SearchServiceApplication object.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

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

Add code example.

$searchapp = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication "SearchApp1"$searchapp | Get-SPEnterpriseSearchCrawlExtension "pdf" | Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchCrawlExtension

This example removes the PDF IFilter and removes the pdf file extension from the list of file types to include in the content index.
