Import-SPAppPackage -Path <String> -Site <SPSitePipeBind> -Source <InvalidSource | Marketplace | CorporateCatalog | DeveloperSite | ObjectModel | RemoteObjectModel> [-AssetId <String>] [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-ContentMarket <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Use the Import-SPAppPackage cmdlet to import an app package from the content database and create an app inside the site collection by using the SiteCollection parameter.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Path

Required

System.String

Specifies the path of the input file.

SiteCollection

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite

Sets the scope of the location of the imported app package. Valid value is: Site collection.

Source

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPAppSource

Defines the source of the app.

The following are valid values:

--SharePoint Store

--App catalog

--SharePointService- Indicates apps that were built in place with SharePoint features, for example Access Services.

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

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

-----------EXAMPLE----------
