Examples

------------------EXAMPLE------------------

C:\PS>Add-SPSolution -LiteralPath c:\contoso_solution.wsp

This example adds the SharePoint solution in the file contoso_solution.wsp to the farm.

Required Parameters

-LiteralPath

Specifies the path to the solution package.

The type must be a valid path in either of the following forms:

  • C:\folder_name
  • \\server_name\folder_name
Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:SharePoint Server 2013, SharePoint Server 2016

Optional Parameters

-AssignmentCollection

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.
