Get-SPUserSettingsProvider

SharePoint 2013

Published: July 16, 2012

Applies to:  SharePoint Foundation 2013 | SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise 

Returns a list of User Settings Providers installed on the farm.

Get-SPUserSettingsProvider [[-Identity] <SPUserSettingsProviderPipeBind>] [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]

Parameters

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPUserSettingsProviderPipeBind

Specifies the GUID ID for a User Settings Provider.

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.

Detailed Description

Use the Get-SPUserSettingsProvider cmdlet to return a list of User Settings Providers. To return a list of a specific user setting provider, use the Identity parameter. Otherwise, the list for the entire farm is returned.
