Stops sharing the specified service application outside the farm.

Unpublish-SPServiceApplication [-Identity] <SPServiceApplicationPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Use the Unpublish-SPServiceApplication cmdlet to stop publishing the service application, specified by the Identity parameter, outside the farm.


Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the GUID of the service application to stop sharing outside the farm.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh.




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.




Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters




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

UnPublish-SPServiceApplication 053c34be-d251-488c-8e94-644eae94da26

This example stops publishing of the specified service application outside the farm.

The service application GUID is unique to every farm. You can run the Get-SPServiceApplication cmdlet to see the GUID of the service applications, and then use the result from the Get-SPServiceApplication cmdlet for other SPServiceApplication cmdlets; for example, Grant-SPServiceApplication or Publish-SPServiceApplication.
