Returns the shared site hit rule.

Get-SPEnterpriseSearchSiteHitRule [[-Identity] <SiteHitRulePipeBind>] [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-SearchService <SearchServicePipeBind>]

The Get-SPEnterpriseSearchSiteHitRule cmdlet reads a SiteHitRule object when the site hit rule is created, updated, or deleted. A SiteHitRule object sets how many crawler sessions (threads) can simultaneously crawl the given site.

If the Identity parameter is not specified, this cmdlet returns the site hit rule collection for the specified search application.

Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the site hit rule to get.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh, or an instance of a valid SiteHitRule object.




Specifies the search service that hosts the crawler with the specified shared site search rules.

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.




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.

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.


$shRule = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchSiteHitRule -Identity MySiteHitRule

The following example obtains a reference to the site hit rule with the name MySiteHitRule.
