Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchFileFormat [-Identity] <DocumentParserFileFormatPipeBind> -SearchApplication <SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameters

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.DocumentParserFileFormatPipeBind

Specifies the identification of the format to disable parsing of.

SearchApplication

Required

Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Cmdlet.SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind

Specifies the Search service application that contains the file format.

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.

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.

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

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

Detailed Description

The Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchFileFormat removes the ability of the content processing component to use a third-party filter-based format handler (iFilter) to parse files with a specified file format and file name extension. You can use the Get-SPEnterpriseSearchFileFormat cmdlet to verify that a content processing component uses a third-party iFilter for a specified file format.

During iFilter installation, the operating system registered the iFilter with one or more file name extensions. Use the Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchFileFormat cmdlet for each registered file name extension that the content processing component no longer shall parse. Do this on each server that hosts a content processing component in the Search service application.

Your change is effective after you restart the SharePoint 2013 Search Host Controller process of each server that hosts a content processing component in the Search service application.
