Returns an Access Services application or a collection of Access Services applications.

Get-SPAccessServiceApplication [[-Identity] <SPAccessServiceApplicationPipeBind>] [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]

The Get-SPAccessServiceApplication cmdlet retrieves an Access Services application. If an identity is not specified, the cmdlet returns the collection of Access Services applications that are in the farm. The properties returned from this cmdlet are read-only. If changes need to be made, use the Set-SPAccessServiceApplication cmdlet. These changes affect all computers in the farm in which this Access Services application runs.

SharePoint Management Shell


Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the Access Services application to get.

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