SharePoint 2013

Applies to: SharePoint Foundation 2013, SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise

Topic Last Modified: 2015-03-09

Returns the claim-to-user license mappings.

Get-SPUserLicenseMapping [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-WebApplication <SPWebApplicationPipeBind>]

The Get-SPUserLicenseMapping cmdlet returns the claim-to-user license mappings for the entire SharePoint farm or a specific web application.

Getting the mappings for the entire farm does not retrieve any specific mappings on a web application.

If you specify no parameters, the license mappings for the entire farm are returned. To display the license mappings for a specific web application, use the WebApplication parameter.

SharePoint Management Shell


Parameter Required Type Description




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.




Specifies the URL, GUID, web application name, or instance of a web application object from which to get the user license mappings. The type must be an URL in the form http://server_name or http://server_name/sites/sitename, a valid GUID (for example, 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh), a web application name (that is, SharePoint - 80), or an instance of a web application object.
