Analysis Services PowerShell Reference

SQL Server 2012

SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services (SSAS) includes an Analysis Services PowerShell (SQLAS) provider and cmdlets so that you can use Windows PowerShell to navigate, administer, and query Analysis Services objects. For more information about loading and using the provider and cmdlets, see Analysis Services PowerShell.

Analysis Services provides eleven cmdlets that correspond to methods in the Microsoft.AnalysisServices namespace. The following table describes each cmdlet and provides a link to the corresponding AMO method.

If you want to use PowerShell to perform a task that is not represented in the following list (for example to create or synchronize a database), you can write XMLA script for that action, and then execute it using the Invoke-ASCmd cmdlet.
