Returns a Microsoft InfoPath 2010 form template.

Get-SPInfoPathFormTemplate [[-Identity] <SPFormTemplatePipeBind>] [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]

The Get-SPInfoPathFormTemplate cmdlet reads a specific InfoPath 2010 form template or the collection of templates. If the Identity parameter is not specified, the cmdlet returns the collection of InfoPath 2010 form templates for the farm.


Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the InfoPath 2010 form template to get.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a form template (for example, InfoPathFormTemplate1); a valid name of a form template files (for example, FormTemplateFile1.xsn); or an instance of a valid SPFormTemplate 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.
